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).

It's all still tariffs

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. 

Except Trump imposed tariffs on the EU as well.... Which the new administration was/is trying to undo...

can confirm re: Excavator. everything I wanted out of the WarPig/DanceHaul group. close second is the new Psycocandy. 

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

What do you like about the Psychcandy?  Is it any diff than the Warpig?  I rode a Warpig and it was cool, thinking about the Twin Pig for this year.

little bit livelier than the WarPig, just more fun to ride all around. you’re a little further back on the sidecut, as well.

I'd agree with that. I liked how the new warpig rides over the older one. The new sidewall is a nice addition.

@yukiotokosama what sort of feel does it give? Missed out on picking up a 22 superpig so might just get a cheap warpig.

Take this with a grain of salt since I don't have much time on any of these, but here's my thoughts. When the Superpig was coming out I got a chance to ride the Warpig and Superpig back to back. I found the Warpig to be a bit too soft and dead for my liking and the Superpig just a bit too agressive. Was hoping for something in between. The new Warpig feels a bit livelier and stiffer. I didn't ride the new Superpig, so I don't know what that's like. On that day I rode the new Warpig, Psychocandy, and the new K2 Excavator. I really enjoyed all of those. If I had to chose one it would probably be the K2.

was gonna bring the Slash ATV out of retirement for a meatier twin board this season, but the Blossom is inching its way into my list of potential new boards. seems like it’s the Custom Twin reborn, but with a waist width to support a boot bigger than a men’s 9.

New Nitro Slash split is right up my alley.  Problem is we've lost two winters in a row due to COVID restrictions and lost out on a season pass.  Great lookin' specs imho.  Full monty camber, 16mm taper, and WIDE.

I do wish it did have ultra clips though (not a deal breaker by any means).  Integrated Kohla skins are the tits.  I always had my eye on the pintail Slash and almost pulled the trigger (would have on the blue turtle/whale graphic), the last version model was pretty ugly with that brown...this however is definitely a want.

I've got a Lib Split Brd that hardly has been used per COVID and the base TNT+ material is absolute garbage for split duties.

Cole, I find our board tastes to be pretty similar with Slash, Salomon HPS, now this  👍
