How about pick one up a bit long for your powder board? That would work maybe? Supposedly teh Evil twin might have a sintered base for 2010?

Cheers Kim - you're lucky boarding season is upon you. I'm missing the snow strangely enough even tho I've always hated winters previous to this one when I started boarding

Nice! Enjoy your season! I'd love to take a snowboarding vacation in NZ during our summer here in the US.

The Bataleon Distortia is the female equivalent of the Evil Twin actually and it comes in 143 and 147. So you can get the ET (kind of) after all.

I just got an '09 Distortia and my season is over so I haven't been able to try it out yet but I will get to very soon. I'm from the states but I'm doing a semester in New Zealand at U. of Otago, so I'll be in Dunedin from late June to November. Only a few hours from Wanaka/Queenstown.

I also am unsure how I feel about the horse but I think it might be growing on me after seeing it a few times. The '09 Disortia is pretty ugly, it is leopard print with a giant pink diamond. Wouldn't stop me from buying it, should be an excellent board but it's going to need a serious sticker job. The 2010 one is a little better.

yea, wtf is up with that leopard/pink diamond crap? I was thinking about getting that board, and when I saw it I was like, um are you serious??? It's terrible, good thing graphics don't have anything to do with how the board rides. Definately a sticker board though

bataleon call it extraduded. they have just updated their nz website so you can check out all the new specs etc BATALEON SNOWBOARDS NEW ZEALAND | Triple Base Tech, the best thing to happen to snowboards since edges.. i would have preferred a sintered but the TBT should help getting good speed down the mt.

if you've never been to nz before u'l love queenstown & wanaka! both are really beautiful places, picture perfect nz.

aparently the horse graphic looks alot better up close/real life, i was a bit put off at first but i guess i thought i'd be a bit of a douche to pick a board for the picture lol

let us know how ya like the distortia when you get a chance to ruide it, i wouldnt mind getting a true twin bataleon too. it really sucks they're so expensive! and i'm not too keen on the 2010 graphic either a bit plain IMO

enjoy ur stay in NZ
