Jdang, what board do you have now? Still and Evo? (I can't remember if you said you were getting a Cobra).
Yup, thats' why I say Proto/SL on crack. It looks to be a mixture of a bunch of different boards.

No Evo. I bought a Coda and loved it last year in Tahoe, so I grabbed a Westmark to fool around with down here in shitty So Cal resorts (Mt High, Bear/Summit). Yes getting a Cobra. But saving it for the bigger resorts when I make a trip (possibly Tahoe in a few weeks, looking at SLC, and Mammoth in February). Going to powder chase with it if I can.

I could still ride the cobra in So Cal but it'd be mostly pointless. Bear/Summit at least has a semi-long run. and I've ridden the SL there. And I really do mean Semi-long. I'm just getting to know the Westmark so I'll keep pounding on that locally. Had a fucking thigh bruise my first day out (from a trip to Asia) and couldn't even lift my front leg. So ollie's were so fucking painful I grimaced when even starting to try one. But the westie seems to a little less poppy than the Coda.

I didn't find the Evo that poppy (but I still suck). The SL felt better on the small jumps I do take.
