    I have been stuck between the flagship and the explorer. I actually have demoed both boards, but the snow was in such bad conditions that I could not get a genuine impression, which is why I am posting here. Still, I loved them both, but for different reasons. I am looking for a board that I...

    Alright guys! So I was pretty much sold on the Hovy split by Jones, but have heard some good things about Weston's Backwood board. Has anyone ridden the Weston or Hovy or both... and can give some input? I'm looking for a board that can obviously float well, and initiate turns well. Going to be...

    Alright, it's that time of year and i'm looking for a new board. This will actually be for splitboarding in the Wasatch and some of the tetons. I want something really turny and playful, but can handle pow as well. Looking at the Dump Truck and Hovy. Any other recommendations?

    I've been riding for 8 years on a K2 Darkstar 157 (2008). I like fast carving and have experimented with powder. But I also like the flexibility in the K2, but wanted to step it up and also find a board that rides better in powder. I guess I'm in between freeride and all mountain, but doesn't...
