I've been bugging the canadian sales rep to try to get them to come out west so I can at least touch the board before buying it (I'd prefer to try) but everyone I've talked to says they're fantastic.

I'm assuming it'd be a worthy replacement to the Burton T7? I love ripping it on the T7 but it's super stiff and cambered and makes me work through the powder. I'd be surprised if anything bombs quite like the metallic T7 though.
Yes it was! I was in the market for something like this. Had my eyes on the Salomon Burner or Nitro Pantera LX. But just couldn't say no to this offer! I always wanted a Kessler, and let me tell you... it's worth every penny!!! I had a T6 before and I think this Kessler Ride board is like a dream! Unmatched in pure speed and combined stability. I'd be flying by EVERYONE in sight on any trail, and yet to find anyone that even came close to catching up with me. But honestly, it's not just the speed and dampness stability, but how easy and effortless it is to ride and turn.

I'll try and take a video with my GoPro next time out and post here to add to the review.

Cheers...
