Okay guys that puts us right on the money for 5 boards. If I don't hear back from the group buy guys in the next week or so I'll get in touch with them. I'm hoping they can get things rolling as it'll take time to make and ship the boards. I'm already searching for bindings so I can start the season on this board!

BTW, I'm planning on getting non-EST Burton C60 bindings as I'm already running the EST versions on my current board, and I really want to do a proper comparison of the Burton T7 vs. the Kessler Ride.

TLN, I'll ask them about the Alpine or BX but I have a feeling they'll want to keep it as a one board option. And I'll ask about the plates too but I have my doubts about that. I'd probably like plates for mine too...

yea, i think that he perfer to make one type of board for the group.
Plates with some nice % off will be great, but i honestly doubt how much we can get off the regular price.

I've just mentioned the BX or Alpine, as i've already bought a big freeride-allround softcarve board, but i'd go for Kessler for $600-700 anytime.

P.S. I'd put my Ride CAD on this, got nothing to compare though. Only prior 4wd.

I'm probably late to the party, but if its anything like a CX or T6 and the reviews you guys are posting, I'd be down to pay 600 for a board like this.

Not late yet! Just waiting on info back from the company organizing it... I've said we've got at least 5 interested so we've still got time to firm up numbers with him after.

I haven't tried the Kessler but if you read Dice's review thread (link in the first post) it seems right in line with the T6. Keep in mind I'm a T7 rider looking for something at least as good!

Only thing I'm not sure about is the construction. I know 99% of boards these days are wood cored, but I'm a fan of metal cores and really like the feel of the T7. It was also damaged when I moved out west, then driven over by an SUV at one of the ski hills this year, and it still rides like the day I bought it.

Based on it's heritage, it should be a board that can carve with the best of them!

I'm getting antsy so if I do hear back soon I'll get on their case again.

Not sure if too late but I would be in for a 158 ride, If too late have a beat on an Amplid UNW8 from last year for $480.00.

Everyone waiting for the prices =)
BTW, what do you think, if this can be some kind of "simplified" version? I think that's quite possible, as this board all are hand-made and this is now what we all are looking for.

Yeah it's iGet.it again. When I e-mailed them to ask if they were doing another Ride sale this year, they said if we could get a certain number together they'd just do a direct group buy for us. I think it works out for them because they're basically guaranteed sales before they even order the boards from Kessler.

Not sure what you mean by a simplified version? You mean a custom board for this group buy? What would you want different? Personally I'd rather a little more camber as they say the profile has "lifted tips" but that would probably take away from the freeride aspects of the board.

Well I'll e-mail them again and find out where we're at, I really want to get my hands on one of these NOW!!!

The latest from iGet.it... Just waiting on Kessler now! I've told them we're up to 8 or so interested.

"Agreed : ) It is taking a bit of time but there is a great team over there so we are looking forward to what we can do this year."
