david_z Actually I was just laaaaate publishing reviews of the 2015/2016 boards, usually in fine publishing those by August, but this year I didn't finish until late November.

The CK Nug obvi was not available for demo last year, it was an xmas gift to myself.

Nivek: I don't know, I heard they have it.

Guy on internet: fuck you ignorant fuck they don't have it, what the fuck you think you can get on here and just say shit like u know aaaaaaaaaaaa

Heated debates over catalog details are my favorite type of interwebs.

*a bit of a necro, but noticing you are really gettin after it with the reviews this year! (maybe its a normal amount, idk!)

Currently arranging a few more reviews, coming soon-ish:

* Fullbag Snowsurfs: Blunt Diamond 156

* Antix Collective: Hoffmaster and/or Division (to be available 2016-2017 winter)

Demo season is around the corner, so I'll be working on a few 2016-2017 boards as well.

david_z Finally getting around to this year's reviews, kicking it off with the Marhar Regent:

2016 Marhar Regent Snowboard Review -

david_z this is the dirty side of board reviews.I don't review based on what I like, basically talked to the reps to learn about the board and then put it through its paces. How well died it carve at speed, at slower speed, what's the feel/damp, how's the flex ? Pop? Platform for ollies? Stability? Etc...

Riding a bunch of boards in short order let's me get a comparative feel for them without getting particularly keen or accustomed to the particular board.

Longer demos would be ideal of course but there's only so much time and relatively few demo events that I can attend.

I also always recommend taking all reviews with a grain of salt and considering multiple sources to avoid any one reviewers biases

Anyways, this is what I rode yesterday:

* Bataleon White Gold 158
* Capita Outsiders 156
* Capita BSOD 161
* Capita/Spring Break Slush Slasher 147
* Rome Agent Rocker 153
* Marhar Regent 158
* Marhar Axiom 156

It will take a while to work up the reviews so this is just a tease. I will try to add some pictures later or this weekend.

Right now I am thinking about getting on some more boards but it is -3F outside with windchill of -30F and the fireplace in the condo is awfully nice... plus, I don't think I told my day job that I wouldn't be working this week hahah, so I need to pretend that I'm actually "working" at least a little bit.
Wait, you are riding 7 boards in 1 day? How do you get an accurate feel for each board doing that? I have ridden over 30 boards, but it takes a good half day to give a fair review because it takes a minute to adjust and find the best uses for the board, along with a general comfort level.

Not criticizing, but you will be most apt to like boards better that ride like your current everyday driver, and things that are very different will take more than 1-2 runs to get a feel for.
