Correct. If you look at the sir floatalot you can see it has a very small effective edge, it would handle like a very short board IMO, the nose and tail only come into play when you hit the powder. Im not sure it would be great for the groomers but I may be wrong! As I said I would love to try it, it is an exciting shape.
The neversummer- meh. Heavy, not exactly a great shape for powder IMO. Riding my Neversummer SL in Hokkaido was like having an anchor tied to my feet. I only ride mine when the snow is shit.

Thanks ETM for the links!
I'm going to give this new shape for sir floatalot a try.
Seems like sir floatalot is quite an advanced board. Hope I can manage!


I've been looking at past posts and VMan weighed the Summit 161cm at 7 lbs. 167cm one will probably weigh even more than 7lb

Thanks

Good move. Niseko is definately natural habitat for that fine specimen. I was drooling looking at the nose shape in the vid. If they made a bigger one I would have to own it at that price!

Damn, I just noticed the price. Hell yeah.

I might pass through Niseko next season we should meet up for a few laps.

ETM will be there too and probably Rusutsu in early Feb. I will be there if I can, I have family commitments too.
