22 Wish Quiver
So far my wish list it pretty small.
- Capita Outsiders 156 wide to replace mine from several years ago (as long as the price is still reasonable with the upgrades made to it)
- Airblaster 2L or parka jacket
I'm sure I'll end up buying something else, but that's what I have my eye on so far.
- season nexus 155 or aero 159 & nitro slash 156
- open chair lifts
Kind of split between a DOA or a Mercury. Might be the season I actually follow through on buying something directional.
If I can get into a shop and try boots on, likely some new boots.
Think I'm gonna snag a short board like the Dancehaul or Slush Slasher this go round.
So I have a Nitro Slash 156 and Yes Hybrid 153 yet to ride and just ordered a Korua TF 54.
With a crappy season last year and Covid Not much snowboarding happened. Japan was also meant to happen this Jan but.. Covid. So hoping for a bumper season here in Oz this year! Maybe NZ if they allow a travel 'Bubble'.
Already have an Arbor Annex and Capita Merc. Next season need to pick between:
SuprPig/Dancehaul/Excavator/Arbor Single - Gonna be a tough choice. Just want a guy to kill powder and in the tree's.
out of those, I’d go Single.
I'm still on the hunt for my dream daily driver. Directional, camber dominant, 7 or 8/10 flex, equivalent to 163-164-ish effective edge, 260-265 mm waist width, 8+ m sidecut. I'm currently splitting most days between the United Shapes Orbit 157 and the Korua Cafe Racer 164. Both are mega fun, but the Orbit is a little too aggressive for all-day weekend warrior riding for me (my legs usually peter out around 1-2) and the Cafe Racer a little too relaxed (plus it's wide AF, not great for firmer days).
Couple possibilities that've popped up:
- Weston 10th Mountain Division 162
- Korua Stealth 163
- K2 Alchemist 163 or Instrument 164W
- Stranda Shorty 163
Plus might need to be on the lookout for my next boots. I had a pair of Adidas Tactical Advs as an "emergency" fund when my current Tactical Lexicons died, but the Lexicons unexpectedly had some defects pop up after 40 days. I wasn't expecting to have to think about this for another 2-3 seasons, so that was an unpleasant surprise. I'm hoping I can get my warranty gift certificate quickly enough that I can replenish the emergency fund before Adidas' stock sells through and they're out forever, but I'm not banking on it.
I ended up buying a Korua Stealth 163 and took it out today. Pretty dope. Like I expected, I wish it was about 5 mm narrower but whatever. Already it's the board I would grab if I didn't know what conditions were going to be like (one of those pow or dust-on-crust? dilemma days), and the board I would grab if I needed one workhorse for a travel trip. This plus the split and I'm good.
Think I'm good on the daily driver for the foreseeable future.
I'd still demo the Weston 10th Mountain, the Nitro Mountain, and Stranda Shorty if opportunity pops up, but I'm not in a rush.
I have a much longer list, but realistically
Yes Greats Uninc 156
Interested in the revamp of Korua TF as well
@parkerrrrrr What bindings would you run on the Alchemist?
Probably my karakoram CI thats what I've been riding mostly on my Orbit and fusion.
NOW x YES (Uninc) select pro bindings in pink
Maybe Burton Show stopper
hmm, i missed the Single, seems really fun. big fan of pin tail shape
