SamSam Just curious, but why is an extruded base a no go? Why do most of you prefer sintered? Does it make you go that much faster? Or is speed not the only issue?

Also, on, they mention the following:

"The only real difference is a 10mm taper with the Jones and a 20mm taper with the Bataleon Camel Toe. It makes the Bataleon Camel Toe a little easier edge to edge."

Can someone elaborate on what they mean with that? Do they mean "it makes the Bataleon Camel Toe a little bit easier for making short fast turns"?

I just pulled the trigger on one as well... pretty stoked!

can't find much as fun as reviews out there. I wanted a cloud splitter but the 2013 cheetah is so much cheaper I couldn't really justify it

Supra Well, the moss boards are good for a certain type of rider, but that's not me.

A number of friends have had hover rafts and other jones boards but they've all mushed out after a season. Quality isn't there.
In terms of a sexy shape for a pow board, you can't go wrong with a fish or the new landlord

SamSam hm ok thanks for your views! Actually happy to read a negative review about the Moss Snowsticks, as they for one are to expensive for me at the moment.

What are your thoughts then about the Hovercraft from Jones? Have you ridden one of those? Except for the stiffness, it seems to me that it is pretty similar to the camel toe, or am I wrong here?

Supra i don't think he ever bought one.
I was interested in the 162 ct but I fondled one finally the other day and was suprised by the width and how flat it was. looked like a plank.

I have ridden a moss snowstick though and here's my word on the street for you: I don't like them. I hate the graphics, the topsheet feels like rubber and they're mostly soft surfy boards. the one I rode was a swallowtail where the swallowtail came to within a couple of cm's from the back binding.
They also used one of my photos without permission or payment

SamSam No reviews/personal experiences on the Bataleon Camel Toe?

SamSam Hi! I'm also a powder/snowsurfing enthousiast and I was wondering how these boards (The hovercraft and the camel toe) have treated you last season? And in case you actually tried both boards, if there is one you enjoyed the most?

Personally I'm looking for a board that has a very good float but that is also very fun and playful/surfy.

If I had an unlimited amount of cash my ultimate pow pow board would be a MOSS Snowstick (MOSS - we are snowsurfers), word on the street these boards are by far the best and most enjoyable boards to ride in deep snow (check the youtube vids on their site, so rad). However they are pretty expensive ( 800-1000), also not sure if they are already available in US, they are just entering Europe, but man do they look good

Camel Toe if you want surfy edge to edge. Hovercraft if you want faster stability.
Sick, you always know what to say. Camel toe in 158 and some tt30's coming 21th of december, thanks Nivek.
