  2. Weston Backwoods vs Jones Hovercraft Splits

    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...
  3. Burton Dump Truck vs Jones Hovercraft splits

    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?
  4. New 2018 Hovercraft Split

    Alright, I'm looking into getting a new splitboard! I spent this last season riding a Rossignol XV Magtek 163W. It felt too big, hard to move around in the Wasatch tree lines etc. So after much searching, I'm thinking about the new Jones Hovercraft split 160cm. I'm looking for something that is...

  6. Arbor vs. Venture splitboards

    I'm in the hunt for a new splitboard set-up after upgrading to the new Spark R&D bindings last year. I mostly ride southern california and eastern sierras but will be going to Japan in January too. I'm undecided between the Arbor Abacus and Venture Storm. I'm leaning towards the Arbor because...
  7. Splitboard for "small" person

    I love back country riding. A friend of mine suggested we should get splitboards and go more "where the lifts don't go" next season. Finding as much untouched powder as we can:). So far looking for splitboards I found that most of them are 160+ cm. It feels kind of big for me. I am 5'6" and 155...

  10. TRice Split or Arbor Split??

    Back Country Travel
    I am trying to decide between the Travis Rice Split or the Arbor Abascas Split. I know they have two diffrent profiles, and are two diffrent boards. Here are my concerns: the arbor might be too soft of a board, and the C2 on the lib will make it hard to maintain traction while skinning. I have...
