It blew my mind to be honest. Floats like pool pony. Carves hard with insane edge hold and gets a lot of attention here in japan. I settled on the thickest one for myself as I like the stability of a stiffer board. I sent one down to a forum member who was in myoko for him to try. He may comment on his thoughts when he gets home.

Slightly above average season here, but basically just another year in Hokkaido.
We had a lightly late start to the season with first snow in the middle of November. Then it was epic until a short dry spell at the end of January. Has been solid again for the last 3 weeks or so. Just passed the 500" mark for the season in Hirafu village/Niseko base earlier this week.

Well, I don't know what is more impressive, to make your own board that works exactly as you wanted it to work or take 6 weeks off to ride. You're right, no one should be allowed to have this much fun in life!
