Snoplanks

While were on the topic of crappy board makers, here's a local Bend shaper I have no affiliation with. I have however drooled over these epic little pow surfers. No metal edge.

Warning: This will make your withdrawals worse.

I've never riden powder like that only seen videos. With that said...does that board seem to float on top of the snow more than a traditional board. For me, it just seemed more effortless and to stay ontop of the powder more. Might have been the editing or is it the board.

We used to make mini versions of this with our oldskool decks. Ride them tail first and old innertubes for bindings (or without). We'd get some b-lines in, never anything fancy. RIP Hosoi Hammerhead and old Lucero deck.

Different powder than CO's dry blower. The width of the board and density of the snow make it float on top. I think it's just as fun as blower if not more. Surfers paradise.
