Magnetraction...I'm a believer
So today was my first day with my Smokin' M.I.P. I have heard Smokins' version is a bit mellower than what you get from Mervin and the board is a flat camber but I am happy I had it today. My local hill had ice our outdoor rinks would be proud of and that thing bit in and held a turn better than I ever could have hoped. I have been in better conditions on my old traditional camber, traditional sidecut boards and found myself washing out with anything above the most careful of skidded turns. Maybe it will be too grippy in normal conditions but for a day like today it really lived up to the hype.
