On a normal race board, I can ride for about 3-4 hours then I am smoked. Enter the virus….I rode some of the worst riding late last season in Michigan. Slush to hardpack and bumps and crude. I was happily riding my virus along and very aggressively making my turns. I decided to go out and try one of my other boards in the car. After two more runs, my legs were burnt up and I was heading back to the car to get the virus again.

So things like that make me think, wow Frank D can really build some boards. I swear he has some magic dust he is putting between the layers of the boards. So, as most people tend to say, virus – get infected. I think I am going to probably only buy his boards from now on. I sold 5-6 boards last year because of my experience with the virus. The carbon/tital construction makes a board so easy to ride, and wow what great pop. I have never had a board that has so much life to it.

Fair enough. Not that funny! Show what my priority is right now!
