Default Shapes.

Im sorry about the double tread, but im not spaming. I swear
Anyways, im looking for snowboard with weird shape such as a blunt shape( but more pronounced), double shallow tail, rome hammerhead or anything weird that turned heads. I would love if it was an all mtn stick so i could ride it everywhere and everytime, but thats not likey to happen so unless its a jib stick or a pow board please post anything weird you may have seen and i'll do the research. Im bored of the round shape's and i have a brand new gnu billy for pow and hard charging... That being said i already saw the Capita shapeshifter but it look's like it is going to be impossible to find one. Better if it 2005+ so the tech is not acient and sinteredbase, but if i would love a snowboard i could care less about that...

Yes greats - too much money or i would get it
Travis parker capita - Unorthodox 158, his pro model. Features the freedom groove and i love the double shallow shape but i cant find one. I spent the last 3 hours trying to.
K2 - looks cool but its 2013 and i cant afford it, would love something before 2010 for price costs and to have a older board in my quiver
Burton parkitect - same, 2013 and the stupid channel system, forget it.
smokin - maybe, maybe... But it has mervin manufactoring so the edges arent full wrap, and i already ave a board made by mervin. i woulnt want to take chances on mervin with 2 boards not knowning what the quality of marvin boards is...
bataleon - 2012 goliath is the one i love, but its expensive and not that crazy, deff love the tbt tho

recap : older board with chamber for around 200 bucks, all mtn with full wrap edges. I honestly dont care if its 5 years old or the tech is outdated. I already have a pow capable all mtn stick, brand new that i will be using, this would be a board with a cool shape that i would take out on non-pow days to have fun. If i would love it id get another and sell my billy

Rossi makes a board that you can cut the tips your self, make whatever shape you want. I know you can scratch off the graphics & not sure, but I think they made it easier for your own paint to stick to it? Like just a primer under the graphics?

They go for pretty cheap too. I got to demo the Rossi jibsaw & it was fuckin' awesome.

Cut one end male & the other female, then paint em up real nice.
That should turn heads & the tech is only 2 years old.

If thats the case, they would of have to made the nose and tail without edges... Something that would steer me away. I wouldnt like to risk buying another board without a full edge wrap like my gnu and then both boards, idk just get wrecked....
I must find that Capita unorthodox 158, anyone have one?!?

Smokin boards are not Mervin MFG they have full wrap. Just get a board that isn't full wrap and grab a frying pan, trace a shape on it, and cut that fucker.

Like my brand spankin' new Gnu billy?.... Are you mad?!?.... Wait i actually asked this question before, but you'll have to kill me before i would go hacksawing that board up. Like i said i have a capable board, im just looking for something unique to have. Doesnt have to be good, just fun and ridable... blunt is pretty boring, but if i cant find anything, im going to get the bluntest board i can find... but thats plan B.

You could try the rossignol retox from last year with bear on it. It was cheap when it came out and now it will be cheaper.

I use natural features at moderate speeds to modify my decks. - rocks work best.

Your thinking about this full wraped edge thing way too much. Stop running into things. I've seen way more boards wrecked because the edge in the nose is pushed back into the core, were a mervin board usualy gets a little chunch taken out.

Your looking for a fun all mountain board, which is the largest part of the snowboard market. But your looking for one with a different tip and tail shape??? It doesn't touch the snow it doesn't matter. Well untill you run into something and your weird nose catches where a round nose would glance off.
