That's bad.
I'm 80% out. As i've shipped my Donek to Kazachstan.
May be, if the price will be nice i'd go for Kessler, but i doubt price will be as low as previous year.

I'm still in. Although it would be nice to have this sorted out before the end of the month.

No problem guys, I'm sorry it's taking this long. I'd rather get a firm "NO" than be strung along. I'll push for an answer ASAP.

Okay well I guess I got what I wished for. Not going to happen for the Kessler. Anyone interested in trying for some of the other "exotic" boards out there? I'm thinking of the Oxess, Volkl, Virus Avalanche series... I'd love a Kessler Ride but I'm not paying $1350 from the Canadian distributor. So if they can get a good deal on another exotic I'd be up for that. I'm looking for the same thing as the Kessler. Stiff, freeride, with solid hardpack carving ability.

virus

Here's the word from the iGet.it guys.

"We, unfortunately, will not be able to cut a good deal with Kessler this year. They are being much more protective of their pricing policies despite the success of our offer last year. It is worth noting that we did do the offer towards the end of the season last year vs. at the beginning this year. This is NOT to say we will have less expensive Kessler boards later in the year as I do not feel we will.

We do have some great relationships with other brands such as Lacroix and could find you some info on that board but the price point won't change as we are already at a very steep discount and the shipping from Europe is not cheap.

We love your enthusiasm for our site and the types of deals we try to deliver. Sadly, Kessler feels out of range at this point. It's a shame but if there are any other brands you guys are interested in we would be happy to see what we can do as a 'Private Buy' or an offer on our site.

If you guys are interested we could even position it as you discovered Brand X for us. I think we can openly discuss it with some new brands who might love to be a part of it. Timelines can be tricky and we will understand if you guys will look elsewhere but we are ready to do whatever we can, as fast as we can, to get you guys off to a great season. Most of us ride/ski as well here in Quebec and we can't wait for it to start.

at least we got an answer.
I vote for same: Fast, stiff, carving and freeride.

Oxess usually makes boards shorter: bx is 163 max(kessler got 168), freeride is 171 only (kessler - 176). Both are 1st class in racing and quite pricey.

I think Virus will be good, as they're cheaper (hehe) then Kessler a bit. So they can probably fall into 600-700 range. Honestly i hardly see a reason to pay more, because you can hit your board hard in freeriding and i don't want to put $1.5k on a rocks. So 600-700 is a best price, imho.

also you can take this manufacturers:
pogo
prior (why not?)
swellpanik (really want this!!!!)
virus (that's cool too)
etc...

Really it's a nice idea to look on small apline board manufacturers, because they do make some freeride board and this can carve really nice.

Swellpanik for me sounds great - premium handmade swallowtail boards. Not much people need this, so it won't me much people in line.

probably i'd write some more brands, but tomorrow. really wanna sleep now..

I'd still be in on something else. The Lacroix they have now is still stupid expensive sadly. At the current price point for the Lacroix, I'd buy the Kessler at msrp.

I don't really have a timeline for purchase/delivery as I have other boards. I'm mostly looking at this as opportunity to pick up something cool that I want, but don't need

Cool, and I'm with you 100% on the Lacroix vs. the Kessler. And I've got a board at the moment would just like to get something going so I can maybe move away from the old board and sell it (or keep as a spare).

Sounds like everyone who's still in is looking for the same kind of board as me. Well I threw it back to them and we'll see what he comes up with.

I think the Virus Avalanche FLP AFT or whatever it's called seems sweet. I'm all for the advanced materials in these exotic/small manufacturer boards.
