Isn't the BL or National pretty much "the "same" board with a bit longer nose and setback" as the Mod camber?

Both have those fusion camber profiles that i refuse to touch. Other than that i could be on any of them.

Just looked it up. On paper it sounds just as good as camber, but sometimes things in person are a different story. I'd want to see it first, but it also wouldn't scare me away

No. No way to demo stuff.

Was trying to buy a 18-19 Brainstorm and found out that w/ the change of hands to Spacecraft, the distribution was all lost from Nidecker.  Boards will continue to be made by Meditech in Tunisia and was hoping the Mothership connection would've been there moving forward.  18-19 boards will be available starting Sept.

Anyhow, looks like Gigi is back on riding Slash from some of the comps he was doing for the Freeride World Tour.

I don’t get it? And I’m noticing this all over. There’s deals to be had here and there but many shops seem to be holding out this year. Usually by mid April I’m wiping my ass with 20% off. I guess you could factor in the Canadian peso but still, what gives?

I think it's great. Collective decision to stand against the eternal sales. The customers are starting to get used to them and man, we need this industry!

This whole Tunisia thing -the low quality boards that came out of it- kind of spoils it for me and i am looking at an ATV for next season. :/

Some stores have bigger discounts in-store vs online.  Don't know if that's the case there.

So a few boards brands are producing low quality boards :/.  Not sure how up to date that list is and what proportion of Nidecker manufactured boards are produced in Switzerland, but I think it's fair to say if you've got a warranty claim, they'll honor it.
