I care, I ride FSE's and love them but think a little extra room for entry and exit would complete the design...

STOKED! We had a lot of fun at WWSRA today. We snapped of hundreds of shots and took plenty of vid. Here are a few highlights. When I get more time I will put up plenty more info, video, etc.

Major improvements on Flow's top models. The hit list: Active pivot that lifts the strap. Full, normal sized aluminum ratchets with a snap lock. Toe Cap (some models). Canted footbed. 4 x 4, 3D, and EST all on one disk. Single ratchet release. EVA underpad. New bridge. Urethane Highbacks. Many options and variations. Way more details an videos to come.





Flow is introducing a Silicone dampening pad layer which is routered into the core and creates a sligtly lifted pad under the sinterred base.



Never Summer Cobra looks great. Digging the coffin tips. Very refined looking board.





Raiden Machine 2013 is super light this year with a substatially upgraded full carbon highback.



Ride is doing Slimebacks for 2013 (Urethane highbacks) and slimewalls with pop rods (boards).



Huge things at Rome! Hammerhead Jib tip and tail.



Two variations of 3 dimensional decks which have lifted edges from the inside inserts to the tip and tail. They are advancing this concept on both cambered decks and flat rocker. As you know we are huge supporters of lifted rails progressing towards the contact points. Rome is on target and these look beautifully done.



390 Bosses are looking mean!

Dragon APX with 2013 Charlie Brown Style:



Smith is doing its ever popular io in a new ioX which is 12% larger than the standard io.



Anon's new magnetic M1's are crazy easy for lens changes.

Wow, those new Flows do look interesting. Definitely looking like some crazy new hybrid. I'm glad they're going with full sized ratchet. Their current micros are nice, but can be a little annoying.

If they work right I see no point in Gnu or Cinch continuing on.
