@yukiotokosama that Dancehaul is yet another board that I wish that they made in my size. Jealous!

Party Wave+ 157?

Added a couple of ponies to the stable

Why'd you buy two of the same board. tehh... jk. kinda.

Please update us with a comparison when you've gotten to know each. Both fit what I'd consider close to a quiver of 1 board for me.

that's a great looking board!

I'd love to have the Dancehaul almost even just for the look.

 

Unfortunately I think doesn't fit me well (too wide, sidecut too tight)

Too short. My Moss is almost as wide as that Bataleon, but it's a 170.

I think you’d still have fun on the 157. might not be a quiver killer for you in WA, but it’s super fun for sidehits.

I'm not sure about that. The Dancehaul is pretty soft and centered. I think it will be super fun, but not nearly as versatile as the Orca. I've been riding Orcas for past 2 seasons and it's the closest quiver of one board I've had.

I just meant specs seem closeish and the shape. But... I didn't need to hear the Orca lives up to hype. I don't want to want one. But I want one.

This is my 4th Orca, so you can say I'm a bit of a fan. That said, I'm living in Japan and I've only seen like 3 other Orcas. I hear back in the states every halfwit neckbeard with a Ruroc who only knows snowboarding because of Travis Rice is riding an Orca. Oof, I'm not sure I could ride one there.

Lol add in a set of Burton Step Ons and yea, that sounds pretty accurate.

I'm sure it's a good quality board, I've just never ever seen hype THIS strong. Closest thing is probably the OG Skate Banana or the Warpig, but neither of those were close to this magnitude. One of the shops I frequent (shoutout Milo Auburn) told me they sold 80 of them last year and shipped a bunch of them as far as Canada and Hawaii... in a shortened season, with no e-commerce presence. Apparently people were feverishly calling around the country trying to find them.

I'll demo one eventually, but I don't like center rocker boards, tight sidecuts, or volume displacement boards... so I'm skeptical it can live up to that level of hype for me.

Definitely fair criticisms. I wasn't expecting much when I got the first one 2 years ago. Assumed it would slot into my quiver where my K2 Party Platter was. A short fat that's fun in the trees and dorking around. It turned out to be one of the most capable boards I've ridden. It defies logic. It became my daily driver and if I can only bring one board with me anywhere in the world it's the Orca. The great thing about the hype is I can buy one and ride the shit out of it for a season then turn around and sell it to close to what I paid. It's the Toyota Tacoma of snowboards lol.
