Really, do you know who, if anyone is making them now? I would be interested to find out.

if you can make it to whis theres a girl on craigslist that's been trying to sell her 156 Brandywine for a few months now. should be near mint condition and you should be able to grab it for $250 or less.

*Prior Brandywine Snowboard. Barely used

edit: here's a 150 Brandywine with bindings for $400

I would also take a look at Venture Snowboards, they are base out of Silverton, CO. They manufacture freeride specific boards and unisex designs.

GST is making the Jones now. Quality is better as is the construction. I compared my last years deck to the new one, and it is noticably better, mostly just little things, but it is better. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that if you sight down the camber line on mine, it is dead flat, the new one you can actually see the camber.

I like the top sheet on mine better, but I have hear the new one is more durable.

The Mothership is just plain sweet. So are the Priors!!

For everyone who suggest the Lotus... have any of you RIDDEN IT?!??!


I'm just curious because I have demoed it in all sorts of conditions. Ice, pow, groomers park etc.... It's a great deck, I loved it and I almost bought it. But it gets suggested in every single womens thread on this forum, with no regard if it's appropriate for the rider in question.

In this thread the op said she didn't want rocker and yet it was the first board suggested. Seriously, you fan boys should just shut the hell up already. and if you're going to insist on being fan boys the least you could do is sack up and strap on a woman board for the day so you can at least know what you're talking about.

thank you.

I know that Mixie loves me cause I rock hot pink pants and ride womens....

OP since ur in BC?, maybe check out bpro (more aggressive mag and rocker) or even a small billygoat (less mag and less rocker than the bpro...just right imho...both are c2btx). Or a couple great old school cambered decks are an Option kendra starr (twin directional fs) or Option trinity the same as a vinson but women's sized (directional fr) or an old cambered gnu b-nice...perhaps can find one in somebody's closet. I've ridden all of these and own all but the bpro and they are all darn nice boards...I'm now somewhat leaning towards the c2btx cause its a bit more versital in handling a range of conditions...i.e., deeper poo compared to a cambered...thus riding a billygoat...that absolutely rips for baker....it is relatively narrow, stiff but more torsional flex...so its darn lively, responsive and aggressive.

No I don't. Because you make me want to give the b pro another chance and I really can't afford more gear....

Well said. The NS fandom is a bit tiring.

I have nothing to add to the OT that hasn't already been mentioned. Good luck in your search, OP.
