Their company motto should be, "Bad Engrish, Great Board!".

I don't think anyone here would buy that $3,000 board. I think it was that much last I saw. Could be more now? I'd definitely try one just out of curiosity. I'd even take it through powder! Or get stuck in powder rather

I was hoping this was the second generation only to be let down by this old thing. I was hoping they made some "scientific improvements"

from their website: Q: Does The Whip work in powdery condition?

A: The main feature on The Whip FR-117A, the open V hull (OVH) is specifically designed for speed and maneuverability. While it will work fine in regular powdery conditions, it is not recommended for deep, un-groomed, off the trail conditions. In another word, if you are only into heli-snowboarding, the FR-117A is not the board for you. However, a powder friendlier board is in the pipeline, so you will be taken care of soon enough.



LOL who would want this?

The idea of lifting the bindings off the board isnt anything new, people were doing it 10+ years ago with raisers. At least when you worked out that they didnt work then, you could chuck them in the bin and only waste a few bucks!
