We did! Mostly rode Blackcomb upper mountain bouncing between 7th Heaven and the stuff up above Jersey Cream and Glacier Express. First few runs were on the Dupraz, but then switched to my Salomon Super 8. The Dupraz was rideable, but really a tank. I was prepared to buy it if I had just liked it a little bit more. Wish they made the D1 6’3” in a slightly mellower flex. It’s effectively a 9/10 flex on any scale I’m used to. That, with the 193 length, 10+ meter sidecut, and a 28 waist (you’re right about that on @supra), just made it a little too much for me to really be able to throw around like I wanted to.

I spent the morning, today, riding the C3 at two different local hills.  What a lovely little board.  I had other boards with me, but was having so much fun on the C3 that I didn't bother swapping out.

Such a cool looking board! Would love to test one out one day!

You need to try the 6'++ or X6 or +. The stiffness goes 9,8,7 in order. The shorter size and WW will make it easier to throw around and then it's just a matter of getting the perfect flex for you. The X6 is lighter (carbon) and has a race base.

I just wish that the 6' or X6 were wider!

Hey guys, does anyone here have any experience with the pin tail 64?

I've come across someone selling theirs and I'm wondering if it's worth a look.

I'd be interested to see know what it's like mostly for carving if anyone know?

I have the 58, and it's great for carving and allround everything. If I could only have one board (yea right..), it would probably be this one. It can get too deep in wet pow for the 58, and of course you can get better boards for jumping, but I guess the 64 would handle the deep stuff at least.

Going back and forth on selling my Wingswallow 149. I like it, but trying to pare back the quiver a bit. It's a weird board and not an all-terrain vehicle (at least not at my weight, 210 lbs)... but it holds up shockingly well given it's undersized, has super short EE, and is not a short-fat (only 262 mm at the waist). Probably the most unique board I've ever owned. I only got about 3 half days on it before COVID cut last year short.

i sometimes romance a one-to-two board quiver and these are the boards that are holding me back from it.  they're are the reason to have a quiver for me.  each one feels so different.  i dont want that all the time, and none of them would be my one go-to board, but i bring one with me every time and hope conditions will allow for it.

Got back out on the Wingswallow 149. Still shocked how well that board holds up for me at 210 lbs with <90 cm of EE. Sudden speed checks and stops are rough and it has an overall super loose feel, but I'm impressed how well I can hold an edge in firmer snow in the 30-40 mph range (any faster than that and I'd feel pretty squirrely).

The "surfy" thing is overdone but it really does feel as close to surfing as I've felt on snow. Turning feels more like gliding than carving if that makes sense.

I started surfing this past off-season and I feel like it helped finding the balance point to lay in on turns, something I was struggling with last season.

Still want to try to demo a 157, but overall board is so damn fun. Completely different experience from any board I've ever ridden, including other Mosses.

Still exited about @soymateo PQ54 but finances aren't enough right now to buy another board that will be ridden 1-2 times a season.

what are you running for bindings, angles, stance?  

 

been out on the c3 twice now.  first time on flux SRs and +18, +6 52cm.  i think i rode it that way last year and enjoyed it but now found that was not enough angle, felt like i was pulling at my front knee in particular, and the felt every little bump on the fluxs.  switched to stratas at +24,+12 (still roughly 52 cm) and it felt way better.  lean forward it grips, lean back it turns, feels so smooth.  

 

i like these little boards in soft snow, but not deep.  that 57 was a board i felt like i could take out on a deeper day.
