They are all really good in the centrifugal collection. Actually I was impressed by every Amplid I rode. I tested around 20 boards at the Shapers Summit and my top 3 were all Amplids. I have two directional boards already and I ride too much switch to get the Surfari. Hence the decision for the unw8. Basically only board that checks all the boxes I want with that bit of nervous/excited continuous growth to it. As soon as our indoor place is set to open, it will be ordered...and then it will be shredded. The indoor place is great for breaking in boards in the summer. I thought moving from the States to Europe I would ride less but 40 days of vacation a year and all year riding indoors means I get about 50-60 days of riding a year. Can't complain :) Plus I just bought a OneWheel Pint to curb my addiction during quarantine which is amazingly similar to carving groomers and so fun.

Quiver killer??

I want an UNW8 too... I ride my surfari and pentaquark switch occasionally, but I've ridden less switch since I got those boards.

I guess you have the Dada for pow, but the surfari is AMAZING in the deep stuff.

The Dada I will actually ride anything on. It's pretty versatile. I was really impressed riding Jackson in spring conditions. Great slush surfer. It's honestly a little small for me on deep, deep pow days but I got some other stuff for that. My theory is you can ride a 1x12 in powder :p

How is the Dada in groomers, etc? I'd like to pick up an Amplid twin and that may be super versatile. Have you ever ridden a warpig? If so, how does it compare?

Yeah, powder is all about the shape! You don't need edges or a fancy ptex base. The early SpringBreak plywood powder shapes really speak to me.
Unless you're taking laps, hiking or splitboarding you still need a board that can handle chopped up groomers, crud, etc. on the way from the chair to the pow...

The Dada is great on groomers. You ride it a little bit back seat due to the super width and short nose. Took a liitle bit to get used to but then it's super surfey and fun. Switch is also pretty okay. I have not ridden the Warpig but I would compare it to a more directional/snappier Twin Pig. So probably it's fairly similar to to Warpig. I just notice that all the Amplid cores have more snap than a lot of other boards. They are layered really well and offer, move overall, stiffer boards that still flex where you need them.
