ETM, I think I speak for the most of us when I say that we'd love to read more about your experiences with the different boards, like short reviews of how they've performed. I know you've written some but we need MORE. Also, it'd be cool if you posted the stats of your boards with the pics when you produce new ones.

EDIT: Omg, is that a 4x4 pattern I see? How vintage.
I have been fortunate enough to ride one of ETMs decks for quite a few days this season. This year he was purposefully experimenting with the extremes of various parameters (width, taper, profiles, sidecuts) so I don't think a full review is in order.

By experimenting with lots of different extremes he is honing his designs to find the sweet spot for different types of terrain and riding.

I will say this, point blank the best powder float I have experienced. The nose profile just comes up to the surface and doesn't create friction with the snow because of the extremely low angle of the nose rocker over a long area.

I know the snow here and the runs, I know on which days you struggle to stay afloat in which areas. These boards destroy powder without any need for extra back leg work. Super stable as well.

Also the quality and finish was superb, really solid construction. I know because I took it through some tight tree runs early season where plenty of scraping and hitting branches was going on.

I am looking forward to testing out the boards he is building now because I know they will be on another level altogether.

@ETM just put the money into my account for this mini review.

Seriously next year more people should come over and check out the boards for themselves.

I think micro reviews like that one are excellent, dreampow.

And just to clarify things, dreampow's micro review was about this board:

...that's the plan. Although I sincerely doubt I'm hip enough for you guys.
