It'd be pretty big for him, but given what I've read, I don't think he'd have a problem with it. Really, only he could tell us.

It's a Palmer Chanel Titanium 164, it's a Ferrari.
I got 2 @ my house right now, I'm keepin' 1 FOR SURE.

I've been ridin' for 25 years & this is like no other board I've ridden.
It may not have as many shiny fancy sequins as pout's fancypantser, but it ain't far behind.

I believe it's a wolf in sheep's clothing? It was either made @ one of those high end places, or when they stopped making it, it became one of those high end boards, just branded with a different name?

There just isn't a lot of info out there on this board
Even less on the one I'm keepin', it's the fastest one, it has flames!!!

TT

I know you've been digging... Wonder if you've seen this?

Paris Hilton rode my Palmer Snowboard- F/S - Bimmerfest - BMW Forums

Even in 2003 they were trying to figure out what it was!!! I'm not sure I believe the idea that an unused board is going to signifigantly "break down" over time so if you have one of these brand new it'd probably be a pretty good ride.

Any idea what the weight is on it? Might also help to get some more measurements on it. Actual length, nose waist and tail width, effective edge, etc.

They call it a BX board in that thread but it's shape looks more like a traditional board. Guess they went to the more squared off shape for BX after the Titanium was made?

Your right, I have been diggin', hadn't seen those reviews though.
But ya, that pretty much sums it up. When you turn this thing on edge, holy fuck it cuts deep. I'm pretty sure I could put trenches in blacktop during the summer.

It doesn't really seem that much stiffer lengthwise, but try & twist it, ha ha, good luck with that one.

I'm keepin' this one, Palmer Snowobard, it's one year older than the other one I have.
But come on, its got fuckin' flames on it, this ones obviously the fastest.

I think the specs are the same? not positive, but they look identical.

NICE! Something about those Euro boards!

I took out my K-Ride 1st time this week and it was a thrill (been on my T-Rice past 3-4 weeks). Took a run to get it dialled, but once in... it's lock and load trail ripping!

The hardest thing was getting used to the stance & set-back when popping off the shorter tail vs the T-Rice. But that got better by days end.

Can't wait to read the full review on the board.

Enjoy... cheers
