I really don't remember the Supermodel having that much nose... ever. It was basically a tapered Custom X.

Also only a 158 cause you stand just inside the swallow tail. In the deep you have very little buoyancy coming from your tail. Meaning your nose pops up. Big powder boards suck. They're lumbery. The biggest board I ever want to ride is a 156.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Alright I'll be a little more detailed as you asked since you need to be schooled on swallow tails.

See, the african swallows use the cutout in their tails to create a space time vortex that stirs up anti-gravitons thus creating more lift as they fly. Its a process that we have been unable to duplicate in aeronautics but have succeeded in snowboarding. Its a bit of a complicated matter regarding specific densities and subatomic spin orientationing. Dont get all this confused with the european swallows though as they employee a completely different process primary using the quantum entanglement theories regarding left quarks.

I can handle big boards. I do it all the time. I do work in a shop, if I couldn't handle big boards it'd be pretty hard to grab and show anyone over 200lbs anything...

Supermodel it may be, it is one sexy board with a sexy name. Hopefully it doesnt have a bull**** price that burton can make.

It's made of expensive tech and its aimed at rich people. If you can't afford it, don't waste your time hating the price tag. Lib has one that's even more expensive

It likes powder a lot, rides like a very precise Sherlock (I have both). Feather light.
