Please put me on the waiting list for a board !

I think my first day on snow will be jan 2.
The square nose theory is kind of like reverse swallowtail theory. Rather than removing material from the tail I added it to the nose.
The surface area differential from nose to tail is very similar to that of a swallowtail but the total surface area is greater.
I am not interested in flat boards. They have always felt dead to me, I really love camber outside the feet for bombing and rocker between so the board sits flat when unloaded making the nose higher than it would be if it were an all camber board.

You can see this effect really well in my youtube vids comparing the 2013 stuff to the 2012 .
Etm360 is my channel if you want to have a look.

This is the core for my new split. 164 from memory.
I routed out the bits where the hardware goes so it will be urethane instead of exposed wood where the chinese hooks and tip/tail clips go

your craftsmanship looks superb. you build turbos and race engines for a living, right? ever build a bike? i'd love to see what you'd do with that platform and your what looks from here like perfectionism.

Cheers guys.
Yeah I fabricate turbo systems for work. Its not as glamorous as it sounds lol. Lots of dirty work.
I stopped riding bikes when I did my knee really bad at 16.

Building boards and riding them in powder is my passion. This one is crc profile but I heated it more from the bottom than the top to induce more camber so its like a c3 profile. It should skin well.

Still think your first board is the meanest mother of them all. Btw, what's your weight ETM?

I am about 220lb.
The original is a good board, but I cant wait to test these new ones with big sidecut radii and aggressive camber sections.
They should bomb hard.

Feel like coming to Calgary this weekend to help me throw a tranny in the fiancees 4Runner? That's what I'm doing instead of snowboarding...

As always: nice work on the boards!

Oh, I'm quite sure they will, I just think the look of the first (and second) one screams pure wickedness.
