I'm 165lb and 5'9. 158 is my all-mountain size. Besides, the Cobra is very agile because of the unique shape. It's not a freestyle board I'll say that much. When riding regular, the tail swings around super easy. Minimal effort to brush a turn.

2013 Cobra 158 - $180

Both boards have minor dings on topsheet. Evo has some edge imperfections that can be removed with tuning (I never bother with that stuff).

The Evo has been ridden a lot, but is still in really good shape. The Cobra hasn't been ridden much at all. The topsheet chips and dings are from dang skiers cutting it up with their chopsticks.

Let me know guys. Otherwise, off to eBay they go lol.
Was doing research on that board and I found this through google, thought it might bring back some nostalgia for you!

If you guessed that my rescheduled Boho trip is in jeopardy, you'd be right...

Bathroom remodel is running a few days behind schedule, our small house is overflowing with construction equipment and debris, stayed at a friend's house last night after our flight landed, and probably at my parents tonight (and maybe tomorrow). Supposed to leave Thursday and come home Monday, wife leaves Monday for a business trip to Chicago and she's stressing out majorly...

Might end up at Caberfae or Highlands or something for a day this weekend instead of Boho

MOTHERFUCKER! well that's a new development but yeah I just checked and JD's forecast is completely revised from what it was yesterday... (was calling for rain covering the entire LP and the UP all the way west as far as Houghton with the Keewenaw *barely* escaping that pattern.

fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck.

there is just no way I can leave tomorrow. As it is we can't even move back in to our house until Friday and I'm sure it's going to take the both of us the whole fuckin' weekend to clean up after the work we had done. God damnit. I'd even *consider* trying to make it a wham-bam trip and only ride one day, but the timing just doesn't fucking work with her leaving for Chicago on Monday there's just no way i can swing it.

really was hoping I could squeeze this in for February and then still line up two weekends to Boyne/etc. in March. I guess I can push this in to March or end of Feb if needed, but it's just like, how many more 12" events are they gonna get? Sooner or later it's gonna be spring, isn't it?

fuck.

TWC has a severe warning with a "do not travel" notice for the area of Houghton & Calumet. I've been racking my brain to figure out some way I could head up there today before it hits, or on Sun/Mon after!

I don't figure that all that POW would get tracked out & packed by mid week visitors. (...could be wrong about that!) Like you, between the logistics and extra cost, not to mention the prospect of 22+ hours of solo driving for a round trip? Just ain't gonna happen.

All I can really hope for is that the winds from this storm break up the ice on the lakes and turns the LE snow machine back on for the area around Highlands. It kinda sucks cuz the high temps for the area when I'll be there are forecat to be only in the low single digits. That's gonna suck BALLS if there's no fresh snow to go along with it!

With me getting laid up for a month, My hopes for an Epic season really took a hit in the Nads this year! FML!!!!


Late Edit:
....and I see from BoHo's site, they've gotten 27 in. in the last 7 days!!!!!! Shit! It must be awesome up there!!

WTH??? Supposed to wake up to rain & a little freezing drizzle, Instead it started PUKING snow about an hour or so ago! If this changes to rain and starts freezing? I'm in for one bitch kitty of a night at work!

I hope it stays snow, but guess that's not all that likely!
