Haha, that is funny, we are not THAT good over here, but they do produce some awesome kids, and we are hoping that Sebastian or Sneaky as he is known at his local slope will keep his enthusiasm up and get so much better...

I finished up the 2014 deck reviews months ago and won't be doing any more till 2015. I definitely want to get on some of your guys stuff though so expect an email for 2015.

We're happy to roll with whatever fits your schedule. It would be great to get you riding some decks in mid-winter conditions. Amplid has some insane shapes in the pipeline for 14/15 so getting some of those to you is 100%.

I want to try your splitboard. Be sure to send one to BA.

I like the look of the morning glory and the creamer.

Do you have any dealers here in Japan?

I'd be more than happy to do a Japow test/review on here if you have someone here that can supply a demo board for a few weeks.

Also I like the side shots that show the profile in your catalog. A side shot of the tip profile of the morning glory would be a bonus IMO.

In general I wish more dealers would include proper side profile shots. For buying a powder board the side view profile of the tip is perhaps the most important thing I want to see (not just hear a description of). Indeed for all boards I want to see it because any board I ride will see a lot of powder.

I want to be able to see the exact amount of rocker, where it starts, how smooth or sudden the upturn in the tips is etc etc.

Anyway I digress, I like the side profile shots in your catalog and would like to see more.

Yeah J-Norm is the man. Such a humble dude with a great style, tons of ability and a great work ethic. Did you catch this edit when it was released?

We're planning a really comprehensive demo tour this winter so keep an eye-out for the dates. Amplid might not have the biggest marketing budget but people are always stoked when they get to ride the boards so demos are a big focus for us over the next winter.

Yep we have dealers in Japan. Best bet is to email Amplid's Japanese distributor kudo(at)beyond08.com... or info(at)amplid.com and we can get you details of our retailers. The Morning Glory is perfect for deep Hokkaido pow... the surface area of a 174cm and the agility of a 156cm in a 163cm. Unsinkable even on the flats and as nimble as it gets. Plus the stance is almost centered over the sidecut so it rides great on hardpack too. Thanks for the advice on the side profile images, we'll deinitely develop that moving forward. The product video for the Morning Glory which will be on the site in the next couple of months gives a really good look at the profile and particularly the cheeky camber under the back foot.

We have one floating about the US for the Backcountry Mag test so I'll look into that for you.

Thanks for all the interest and questions!

Just recognized that you're one of the brands listed on the Saas Fee demo box. We'll spend some days on the glacier in October. Hope, the 166 Creamer will be around
