Thanks to Supra, it looks like I'll be rollin in the direction of the Smokin Board he previously mentioned as opposed to the Burton (all the reviews seem too mixed). "Playful and floaty" is exactly what I'm looking for... and since cosmetic blems dont bother me in the least, the price just seems too good to pass up.




EDIT: nvm, sold out already!!


The smokin kt-22 is what I have ridden for years and it's great in pow. It's a directional twin with a 1.5" setback. Floats great in pow and is also very stable on hard pack. The had them on sale on the smokin site also.

As short as possible, with enough float to keep from sinking. If I was riding 3ft deep powder regularly.....I would probably go longer. A powder specific board is made to float. Directional, big nose, setback stance, yadda yadda. Do you know were the powder is after 10am? The trees.......the tighter the better. Do you know what's lame? A long ass board in said trees.

ETM, I've seen your tree videos, they are really wide spaced trees, the trees in CO are very tight, virgin like..... Sometimes just wide enough to get a board through...

Damn Argo, you are freakin' fast! I posted that comment, read the one u beat me to the punch with, thought that after your post, mine maybe read a bit like baiting ETM. So I immediately went in, deleted it,.. Only to find you'd already quoted me!!! Lol!

So, OK! I'll stand by my sincere comment, and repeat,..
ETM, I really would enjoy seeing a video of one of your tree runs!

I didn't know 160 was big? I was thinking of the bird man type 180 boards as big...... I also ride a 160w-164w in the trees here but screw anything bigger......
