I had the Shaun Palmer board in the pic below, I just sold it last year.

I've owned more than 100 boards & it was probably the fastest most hard chargin' board that I've had. It only went super fast.

It holds an edge probably similar to Kessler & Donek boards I'd imagine. It was built specifically to win BX's, & it did.

Shaun Palmer History - YouTube

He may be a Dinosaur now, but back in the day he won everything.
Nobody could touch em', hence the crown.
He even went in the Skier-cross & took the gold in that too.

Check out bomberonline.com, it is a hard boot euro carvin' forum.
Lots of BX-ers on there.
If you do a little search, you'll see that the high end Palmer boards are pretty sought after.

I know the higher end ones are pretty steep, but you might be able to find a cheap used one?

The exact same board was in the Vancouver Craigslist a few months ago, it's not any more.
It was brand new, probably 8 years old but brand new $100.
