Cool stepchild pms

Alright,

My name is rai and i committed a cardinal sin,

I bought a board for the graphics....

with that confession out of the way....

Stepchild PMS. there are no effin reviews on it, and even the specs of the stick are fairly un-informative.

so i guess what im asking is, anyone hear anything good or bad about this board or its equivalent?

Ill rock it either way and i always got my NeverSummer Pandora to fall back on. i just couldnt resist the effin sweet graphics.....


thanks Stepchild, you now apparently own my soul.

Question

wow talk about weird. A couple of years later I am saying the same thing. Where is the info, the reviews...does this board exist!? I see some on the jibstick but not the PMS. ppl must be shy.

How did you go with this board?
I too ride a NS Pandora! Love it but wanted something a little lighter, maybe a bit more noticeable flex that still holds up ok when doing a few laps with friends round the mountain.

I just made a comment on their FB page. Hopefully they can respond to that and offer an alternate email or something. I had tried using their contact form too unsuccessfully.

They say they are receiving the emails posted to their page, even though the page stays in a state of 'sending' and will get back to me soon. I will post up what they say. I might even give them examples from other websites of information that is useful when shopping online hehe

From Stepchild after I emailed them(their website form does not work properly but they receive emails fyi)..

Kicker 1 is a tip to tail Poplar wood core, its strong, lightweight and
gives out a fair bit of flex without losing its pop. Kicker 1 is also our
most popular core with the Sucks winning 3 good woods with it. A beefed up
core (kicker 2/3) in smaller sizes become way to stiff. Zero camber is
great for all mountain, gives the float of reverse camber with the edge
control of a regular camber (no washouts). We generally taper down the
nose and tail so the thickness is not the same as the middle of the board.

So...I got a good deal on a 2012 model PMS 149. Its regular camber (was hoping for flat but looks like they changed that only for 2013)

Wont be able to ride it for awhile but first impressions are positive. Its not quite as thin in the tip and tail as I thought it would be (like my Burton Troop) its still very thin but looks more durable that my old Troop.
It flexes well and has a lot of spring to it.
The Graphics look great in real life. Can't wait till those bored people in the lift lines get a glimpse on those busy mountain days and then realize what the graphic is.

Once the season starts (prob another early one, peak is getting about 30+cm this week) I will write some more thoughts up on this board. I know it will be a bit different to the current model but surely still a good basis to go from.

Where were you able to purchase this? I am looking for a beginner all mountain board for my girl friend and cannot actually find this online.

Where do you live and how tall is your girl? I am in Canada so I had to find someone who would ship. There are a lot of stores that stock Stepchild, but not so many that stock the board and not so many that sell it online. But they are available.
There are even a couple of this seasons on kijiji

I am in South eastern US... lol
She is 5'6 and 120lbs. I think the 149, maybe the 146 would be great for her size.


I found the 20111? maybe 2012 in a 146 here: http://sanctionsnow.com/product/stepchild-pms

322 shipped, not bad at all. But I am wondering if I should try and find the 149... It will be less a park board and more an all mountain bored for her, she might get into more jibbing later.

I don't expect her to gain more weight over the next few years of riding either.

Any suggestions on sizing it?

I'd go shorter for a beginner board, off topic but I love Sanction, owner of my local store is amazing.
