I think I understand exactly what to do now.

That template looks pretty sweet.

Now all we need is these other pesky seasons to go by quickly so we can get back on the snow.

Of course I enjoy the other seasons and have other activities I enjoy. Spend most of the summer swimming or surfing.

There is still 350cm on the mountain in Nagano and today its snowing up there. Sadly today is no good for me but I might sneak in one more trip.

Keep us posted on the progress of your board. I will do the same.

Shit yeah, we have some of the most expensive snowboarding anywhere in the world! AU$109 lift passes.
You can actually get it good from time to time, I plan on doing at least 30 days this season. Currently building a sleeper cab for my ute (or truck whichever you want to call it) so I can save a heap on accom.
I wont be needing the pow board but I do want to get one built so I can test it here before lugging them over to japan.

if you like POW, and Japan, and sleeping in your car so you can ride more pow, then yes. Find them.

I don't like sleeping in my car in -30 temperatures but I do like pow. I plan to spend at least 2 weeks in Hokkaido next year as well as my regular spot in Nagano. The movies look pretty cool.


Hey ETM I have my template, just wondering how far back to go with it.

This is my choice at the moment



Then if I push the template forwards about 5cm it looks like this



I have no idea what to expect in terms of change in performance, but I have had 3 good years on this board and whatever happens its OK with me.

I have ridden this board as it is with a twin tip and full set back in bottomless powder many times. It does take some effort to keep the nose up, but as long as you have it well waxed and keep your speed up it does very well.

I am super exited to see what loosing this much tail can do for the float.
