Cause that's what it was specifically designed for. Its a 100% team driven deck. Remember the Believer? The Pow Twin? Yeah its that with pointy tips and ollie bar.

Its just a bit too stiff in the tips to be an ever day board.

Snowboarding Is...

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

I just want to know what about the shape and specs makes it for pow?
The pow snake has taper and rocker.
The Sherlock has elongated tip and tail and rocker. (flying v pillow?)
The dirty pillow has banana with an elongated tip and tail. (banana sherlock?)

To me, the fast plant looks like a completely flat version of the fastplant, but with some rad points at the tips. It'll definitely do everything, and was team driven, but I wouldn't call it pow specific.

The entire reason for the pointy tips was to get across that it is meant to be a pow twin. What makes it so is the way it rides. Its just built to ride in deep snow.

I think those are just to be silly, it's definitely not as pronounced as your average pointy pow nose.

It's statements like this that makes me completely disregard any "advice" you give.

I think Nivek forgets to keep saying "for me" when he says stuff like that. You do mean for you right, Nivek?

Because the K2 team seems to disagree with you about riding that board everyday, or having it jbe powder specific. As do a few mere mortals.

Hey Nivek, it would be helpful if you listed your height/weight, and riding preferences (park/freeride/power) and what mountains you regularly ride. That would help us judge things like stiffness and float.

UPDATE: No disrepect, I literally just want to know what size you are (I'm a smaller guy). I threw in the rest for completeness sake (I'm a bit OCD about that). I edited the post to reflect that.
