I went to a comedy show and then hotel with the GF last night. My bag is no longer full.

Blunt 62 just showed up, I didn’t even know it was on its way 🤷‍♂️

It’s a “B grade,” but having a hard time finding anything wrong.

It’s a B grade, but having a hard time finding anything wrong. Topsheet under the tall part of the L might be it… some of the resin underneath may have not cured as smooth, but basically can’t tell.

LOL I was considering picking that one off Snowboard Trader but decided I have too many boards. Glad it went to someone who'll be stoked on it.

Ended up going for a 56 Blunt Diamond - can't wait to try it out! Was pondering for the longest time if I want to go with the longer one instead - but I think overall I will prefer the shorter playfulness.

Just finished up a day on the hammerhead. In one word, it’s incredible.

Yesterday was a wet day of mashed potato pow, sticky at the bottom, and people’s gear is still sopping wet today. I felt like I blew it by not getting out of bed in the morning for the new snow. Turns out, yesterday was kind of crappy overall, and today was the day. Lower mountain firmed up a little, but upper mountain was still good. Snow dried out a bit as well, which was nice. Started the day feeling it out on cruddy groomers, then found a traverse where there was still a field of pow left. After my first couple turns in there, I knew. That side of the mountain is similar to bachelor,  great for flowing and turning and fun hits, but not as steep. They have had the west side closed all year, which is what’s similar to Baker terrain. Lucky for us, they opened it a few hours into today, so we got to ride perfect snow that had not previously been ridden. So, I’m stoked. I really got to check this board out in a full range of conditions and terrain all in this single day. Decent groomers to shitty groomers, found some ice, leftover crusty pow, and full runs of untouched  AK “dense blower.”

First of all, this thing is actually really easy to ride. Even at slower speed, it’s not too much of a monster. Of course, you want to go fast. You can definitely turn it quicker if you want, but it also settles in really well to long, fast, drawn-out arcs. In typical fullbag style, it is incredibly smooth, not a hint of twitchiness, and just feels good. I don’t have to tell you it carves really well.  Overall sidecut/turning temperament feels a little larger than my typical range, which is what I expected.

Now, in powder, when they opened the west side… Holy shit. Totally incredible board. Like, consider me completely blown away. I don’t need to explain that it floats well, and honestly a lot of this is just me exclaiming at how amazing a larger freeride board is, but the thing is so fucking smooth and powerful, yet so easy to ride, and I don’t think I’ve ever had as much confidence on a board, fully riding the way that I want to without holding back. Maybe my 07 malolo if anything. It is so planted, so powerful, so smooth and fluid... You can go as fast as you want and lay into a huge turn, and have total confidence that the only thing that will cause failure is your body’s ability to stay upright. It does take a little more muscle to move, but it’s one of those things where you just adapt, and I didn’t really notice unless I thought about it later. I was able to take tight tree runs and maneuver very easily, and I pulled off some high speed air shit I never thought I would on another board because of that big, sturdy nose, and probably made some of my nearest to most-technically-perfect powder slash turns I can recall. It’s really not as bad as you might think in crusty, torn up leftover snow either, that stuff is never really that fun, and I had zero issues with this deck being big and stiff.

It is fairly stiff both lengthwise and torsionally, and with the size, shape, profiling, and width, it really hardly gets deflected. It’s more like a “fuck you, get out of my way,” with stereotypical Canadian politeness, of course. This is a good thing for power riders or bigger guys, as it will match up with what they put into the board and what they hope to get out of it.

If I summed it up in short, it is an incredibly powerful, smooth big gun that gives easy confidence and is not a chore to ride. Fast, smooth, confident. You don’t have to be too aggressive to make it come to life, but it will hold up to anything you want, and will actually fit a pretty big range of people. I’m stoked for some of my older freeride friends to have a chance at it. I imagine it shares some “feel” similarities with certain Korua boards, although they have a lot more camber, while fullbag is pretty mellow, with extremely smooth profiling and blend zones.

Really can’t wait to feel this again, especially with NOW drives.

@migfullbag no more boards or just taking a break? I'm worried 🙂
