Pumped to try this. Though, they weren't kidding about the "low camber". Looks flat, almost 😅.

156 Dupraz x B.Hot

25.6cm ww/7.6m sidecut/115.5cm EE/12mm taper/7 flex

Tell us about the flex when you get it on snow. Looks fun. Could be a nice pow booster board! Like that nose vs. the pointy nose Dupraz shape.

52cm stance? Looks very narrow!

lol ya, I prefer 20-20.5 inch stance width. Max at 21, on longer boards.

Currently contemplating returning it, though. A bit disappointed on how low the camber turned out to be lol 😓, but will def share feedback if I end up keeping it.

Happy to finally get one of these, stoked to ride it. Anyone ever spend time on one?

Depends on the flex but doubt a couple of mm camber will make more of a difference than say flex points and torsional flex and construction to how it feels and springs out of turns. Wouldn't worry about it.

Speaking of pointy nose Dupraz... got last year's 6'+ in the mail a couple days ago. My 162 Cadet for reference.

Pretty excited about this one. My buddy who's seen me ride and is super into snow surf (owns a DEEP quiver of Moss boards) insists the 6'+ is my ideal board.

@elektropow and @gd

156cm Dupraz B.Hot vs DI 5'5"+ (165cm) : they seem to be exactly the same board, except for the nose and tail chop and reshape. Same effective edge, same nose tail and waist width, same taper (of course), same sidecut, same width under feet, same flex rating. Only "major" differences will probably be less swing weight for tricks so probably feeling more nimble, but less float in pow if the stance location stayed the same.

Yup! Definitely more my style. I like throwing nose butters in pow, like every time I ride pow, so that pointy nose is not for me.

This is spot on, this is exactly what the folks from Dupraz on IG told me also ("B.Hot 156 is close to 5'5 +" with regards to those specs). Have you ridden the 5'5+; is it poppy @Migfullbag?

And compared to the US Orbit (which I loved cos it was stiff but pretty light) and the T.Finder+, the Dupraz B.Hot feels the heaviest. And as someone who rides both groomers and park often, swing weight plays a factor in whether or not I keep a deck.
