I didn't see this in any catalog! A more stiff version of the Dancehaul is my dream. 

 

https://www.evo.com/snowboards/salomon-dancehaul-pro-snowboard

Evo only. They've been doing this with Salomon for a few years. Last year was a Super 8 Pro.

 

I have a DH and it's super fun. If you want something stiffer I'd look at the K2 Excavator. Same price as the DH Pro, with a better build in my opinion. I rode a 54 Excavator last spring and really dug it.

Psychocandy is so much fun. Maybe the worst graphic of all time though.

All time? I wouldn't even put it in the bottom 50%.

The super generic vectory shapes & gradient graphics of the late 90's/00's make me die inside, some of the early (even "classic") B graphics are very hard for me to like, on a whole Lib graphics are very hit or miss for me (mostly miss), Never summer has like 1 cool board in their entire history, many small brands have put out extreme garbage... like what was that brand that came up more recently with all the sports boards?

I mean, just look at the Echelon Overlord series with Bill Clinton blasting an Uzi infront of an american flag with the cliche leg cling woman trope.

While maybe its so ridiculous it's funny... someone actually put that on a snowboard.

Well, I was being quite hyperbolic which is evident by those atrocities. I mean, every NS ever made has a worse graphic than the Psychocandy.

I was just using it as a springboard to talk about the most important thing in snowboarding. graphics. And I was borde... bored... board. Didn't mean it to come off as more than that.

is it supply chain related?  almost everything else has seen a big jump in materials cost the past year or so (in addition to trouble just getting anything).

except CAPiTA comes from Austria, and most of Union is from Italy these days.  

I’m sure tariffs are playing a part, but production and (like unsatisfied said) raw material costs all around are going up.

on the bright side, STR’s are only $210 and way better than the Forces were when they were $200.
