Are the new MorroW boards with Morr-Rock any good?

I was just @ Sportmart last night & they have brand new MorroW boards with Morr-rock for $120.

I'm thinkin' that's pretty good for a brand new board with a warranty. It's probably a year or 2 old, I don't think that matters much though.

I have a fairly fat buddy(6 foot 230-250lbs) that I'm trying to get to buy a board with rocker.

He's got an old Option 169W stiff as fuck dinosaur, ya that's the model.
Do you think a 163 with Morr-rock is gonna be able to keep his fat ass afloat?
He used to be not bad, but since he's got this bus he's riding now, he has pretty much stopped doing jumps or even venturing off the groomed shit.

He had his first season pass of his life last year(20+years riding)
I swear he's getting shittier every time he goes, it's gotta be the board.
It's gotta be 10 years old @ least & close to 50lbs being a 169 Wide.
He's worse @ jumps & general tomfoolery than he was 10 years ago.

I don't think he can get the board to do what he wants unless he's on super smooth groomers, anything choppy & instantly he's eating shit.
Even in powder I think he's struggling. He won't admit it, but I've been riding shorter decks last couple years & I'm struggling & he's way behind me.

I just got a new pow deck though, so I won't be struggling this year.
So I need fatty cakes to be able to keep up, cause I ain't big on waitin' for fat guys on pow days.

On a side note not, not all guys 6 foot 230-250 are fat.
Him & I were the exact same height & weight for 25 years, 170-180lbs.
Now he's fat. I like to bug fatty cakes.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

I have no idea, but your question made me google Morrow snowboards as I had no heard from them in a long time. Apparently they still make cap construction boards? Had no idea that was still around

My first board was a Morrow Lithium. I rode it for a season and a half. Don't know if you can generalize to a whole line-up from just one year of one model, but for what it's worth I found it to be very very stiff, and the camber would go flat at my weight. I found that the sizing chart wanted me to buy a board that was way too long for my liking.


Error 404. Coffee not found.
