TRice supposed to be stiffer for this season

Not 100% sure. I know there is a new liner, I'd be okay with it being a bit stiffer, I just want the liner to fit the same.

There is a major difference in the way some of their liners fit in the same size. Like I have been able to fit in the T-Rice and Shuksans in a 10, but not the Judges, and I now it's the lender because when I put the rice line in the Judges they were good to go. So I hope the liner fits the same.

But over all I can't see it being much stiffer and the shell appears to be the same. I had the Shuksans and they were too stiff and it was all the shell making that happen. I do know of a shop sitting on a pair of 2019 T-rices, if the new 2021s happen to be too stiff when I get them or fit smaller due to the new liner I'll send them back and order the 2019s.

I might even be letting my Stealth 63 go. As much as I love it, which I do, the no switch riding on it is a major turn off for me. 

I may do the same with my Stealth since I'm trying to up my freestyle / switch game a bit this season the Stealth is MEGA-directional. Setback is only ~0.75", but something more like 6" against total length because of a huge nose and basically no tail. Even just popping simple step down FS 180s I got hung up a few times when I miscalculated how much clearance I needed for the nose.

I'm not quite sure what I'd replace it with, though. If Korua made an Otto 163 or a TF 160, but I'm a hair too big for largest size of either board.

split upgrade (boots, too 👀). went a little old-school hamburglar w/ the sticker job, but splits are probably my favorite to sticker up.

mucho more camber than the Squash Split had  

980AF290 519A 43C6 96D3 28EA0EC6D93C

upped to a 162, as well (i think i like big boy boards finally), and my Union skins from the Squash still line up fairly well. gonna use those unless I can track down the Nitro custom skins, but they don’t even have the Slash ones on their site. 

now i need to decide if i still need the solid, too.

^ Looks like a pretty wide stance 😊 I wish my knees could take this for the stability…

i hope it's just the angle 😆 

eyeballed the puck/stance setup, but it looked to be inside of the 22" reference, i usually ride about 21"

i am an agent of chaos.

 

as long as it's between 20.5-22 i'm usually pretty comfy. set up all the boards at 21/-3 this year, but voile pucks only go in 5 degrees, so had to settle for 20/-5, figured eyeballing the stance wouldn't be as big of a deal as that. 

(also I couldn't find my puck alignment tool)

^ This... If my stance isn't 22" 18/-9 it throws me off... I can tell with even 1/2"

Super curious about that Slash split! Looks like you got a ripper there @coleslawed !

 

Looking at the pucks, it looks like the narrowest possible stance, so must be camera effect. 🙂

 

Regarding skins, I have one pair which I use (a lot) across 4 very different boards: cut for an Amplid Creamer (now "Frequencer") 163, work perfectly well on Korua Pencil 164, US Cadet 163 and even Amplid SurfShuttle 158. Just in case someone tells you you need perfect cut skins always.

Yup, also use same skins across multiple splits. But also have different skins: light + glidy but less traction vs. heavier but more grippy

I have different skins, my splits are 22 cm apart, usually strip away most of the glue first. Discarded one split now because it’s too stiff in the tail, prolly give it away.

Thankfully all set now with the kit for the coming szn. Still getting the fit a bit more dialed for the Longo's. So much more options to micro adjust the fit than I'm used to, esp compared to only having speed lace on my B boots. The footprint's not too bad, either, seems close to my Ion Leather.

Have just one weird pressure point on top of my right foot, close to the ankle on the medial side, but nothing at all on my left. So likely due to the shape of my foot specifically, not the boot itself. Otherwise, fits awesome. Think gonna run it without the stiffeners, cos feels more in my flex/comfort wheelhouse without them. With stiffeners, feels around the Ion flex range. Without, feels closer to a broken in Ion Leather imo.
