As is usually the case in MI, it wasn't a pow day so no Terrapin for me. I was able to get on the SK but didn't have time for the Dump Truck. Haven't gotten around yet to writing the SK review but at risk of blaspheming Burton it was good, maybe great, but somehow didn't "wow" me. I would like to ride it on bigger mountains and in deeper conditions and maybe that would change my opinion for the better... the taper & setback really geared towards pow, and it's supposed to be one of those "do it all" decks but there are many other capable boards if most of your time is spent cruising groomers and boosting side-hits. It seemed to favor a more deliberate and surfy riding style, although it's an excellent carver and holds a good edge, it just wasn't a brute bomber of a board and in chop/variable conditions, or heavy pow, I think I'd find myself wanting something stiffer.

Anyways I'm finally catching up with shit now that our season here is over... I a full day on the Marhar Woodsman at Mt Baker at the end of March and also rode a few days on my Lib Greenest (Scotty Wittlake model from 2016 actually, but I think it's the same or not significantly different) at Stevens and Mission Ridge. I'm gonna get around to that Woodsman review but since Adam already wrote one it's not high on my list of priorities just yet.

Recently published: Rome Blur and Dinosaurs Will Die Wizard Stick.

Upcoming will include the SK, Burton Working Stiff, Capita BSOD, DWD Brewster, Arbor Iguchi (camber), Marhar Woodsman, Marhar Darkside, Ride Warpig, K2 Simple Pleasures, Interior Plains Project Odessa (seem to have lost my notes on that one, hopefully I can relocate them...), NS Funslinger and maybe a few more.

I rode the Kazu last year but it was the last board I demoed, I forgot to take notes, and I was tired AF, I liked it, but I'll definitely ride that one again so I can write a decent review.

I'll try to ride the Dump Truck and Skeleton Key from Burton probably

Signal won't be there I think, they're moving to a direct sales model.

I'd be surprised - but also thrilled - if Korua or US are there.

everything I hear about the terrapin is that it's a pow only board, I'd love to ride it but I won't waste time on it if it's a corduroy day.

Adam tested it at SIA, I don't think Dave has had his hands on it yet. Follow Marhar on your fake FB account because they post when they're doing demo days.

-edit-
Btw,... pretty sure @neni or her SO recently picked up one of those Jones Project X boards. You might enguire with her how it handles the steep & deep! (....but everything I've seen & read here? Pretty sure Those two could shred even on one of ETT's 2x6 planks!!!)
Negative. SO got the Carbon Flagship. That Project X just looks similar cos it has the same checkered topsheet.

Adam just wrapped up at SIA and has a few 2018 gear reviews already published:

Jones Project X

Union Expedition Splitboard Bindings

Marhar Darkside

Marhar Woodsman

He's got more in the works, too.

I'm heading to MRA Test Fest at Boyne in a few weeks and will be doing some more demos as well so if you have any requests, leave a comment.
What are the dates of the Test Fest?
