Kapn - neither of us have had a chance to ride any of the Smokin' boards but I am going to try and reach out to them this winter. We were able to get in with a few of the smaller companies last season, so hopefully we can add a few more this year.

Nope. I think Leo might have ridden the 2012 Magtek but I don't believe he ever did a review on the site about it. Send him a PM on the forum he's usually pretty good about responding to inquiries like that.

Definitely would be cool to ride & review a lot more boards unfortunately we aren't in a position where people are knocking down my door to send me boards for reviews... if I can't get my hands on a deck at a demo event it basically means I have to beg for them to send me a deck to review. Sometimes that works (Niche, Signal, Homewood, Blank and No Way!) but more often than not they never respond, or they do respond but they never follow through (I'm not naming any names but let's say there are a few on the East coast who said they were really stoked to work with us and then never followed through...)

2013 Lib Tech Attack Banana 156

Enjoy. Not my favorite board but I think there is probably a subset of riders who would dig it.

Are Nito an option?
If so, can you demo the Nitro Ultimate?
Would love to read what you all think about it. Hype or for real.
Cheers...

We're not currently doing any demos I'm just working off the long list of boards we rode back in February, unfortunately there were no Nitros on that list. You may check out angrysnowboarder.com if he has a review of that board I'm not sure, but his reviews are really good.

Ride Buckwild pretty fun higher-end park board, burly enough to rip all over the mountain without feeling like a park board.

It hasn't changed except the topsheet from last year; here's Leo's take:

Did ride them; disappointed. First time for me ever using Flow bindings. I think they were still pre-production and probably some changes being made for the production models but the ones we rode were quite frankly a huge pain in the ass. They ratchets stuck like hell and made it hard to get out of the bindings. Getting in to them was also a pain. All told they were actually *less* convenient than traditional two-strap bindings. I don't recall any comfort issues with them, actually that hybrid strap and the toe strap reminded me a lot of the Ride ThinGrip strap (which I love) just ease of use did not at all live up to the hype.
