Haha fair play. I actually have a TJ.....Gentem and Moss are great, not cheap though and the Amplid was such a deal it was worth an ask.
Tits deep - sorry to say it's been a great season so far.
Stop it!! 😢

I've been toying with the idea of running the gauntlet for a weeks riding in Japan....

well...., good luck with the quaratnine on that ..............., ( its worth it tho, hihihihi)
I'm just looking at it now, I think fully Vax, PCR test prior, RAT on arrival, declaration and I'm good to go. Good flights also for the dates I'm looking $1200 return which is not bad. God it's tempting but I've got a wedding I'm supposed to go to in late Feb which will complicate things. Coming back looks a little more complicated with a PCR or supervised RAT needed prior to departure.

Maybe I'll put effort into NZ mid-year

The paypal dispute worked! Amplid emailed me promptly and put a new board in the mail. They are having me hold onto the old board to wait and see if UPS needs to do an assessment.
I just received my new Souly Grail 157 10hrs ago, and my board came with a small but significant damage. I can only think that the damage was done due to UPS shipping, (took maybe 2 weeks, from Germany to Canada). I have already filed a claim against UPS, and have sent enquiries to Amplid... As of now, there is no response yet.
I can already see that it would be awhile before Amplid would get back to me.
I am very unhappy with this experience.

Meanwhile, just wanna know if this damage can fixed at any snowboard repair shop?

I just wanna test ride this board asap!

Ahh that sucks,.I feel for you. Good on you for taking pics while it still has the shrink etc on too.
No idea how you'll work it out or what happened but i must say while my boards arrived in good shape, there was little to no extra protection for those exposed corners that are subject to more pressure than other areas and also unfortunately the parts that the weight tends to get rested on during shipping.

Fingers crossed they come through for you brother/sister.

man i feel for you, big time. i don't have anything as expensive to import as that, other than perhaps my Marhar LJ (approx $1300 at the time, with the conversion rate - $1300 for a cup of tea that doesnt sit well with me right now).

i would be utterly fcking devastated if my new deck showed up like that, let alone an Amplid, which people go out of their way for, and must get giddy-excited about, before tearing open the box like a kid at Christmas, only to find that.

hope you can get some recourse.

importing a deck has its risks - hence why from now on, I can only bring myself to order from local suppliers.

EDIT: sorry if that sounded holier-than-thou. it wasn't meant to. importing decks is a frightening business. my LJ was 2cm shorter than advertised, specs not as advertised, with weep-holes in the sidewall, through to the core. i was scared as fuck when i saw that, and the fact that the deck was nose-tail+toe-heel warped - a brand new deck that i had saved a season for. emailed back and forth and they explained their manufacturing methods, which helped to ease my mind to a degree, so yeah warped deck is all ok, but yeahnah never again - not for $1300aud

hope you get it sorted man.

Quick szn ender/on-snow edit on the Amplid Souly Grail 157. Clips mainly from our crew's trip to Whis back in early March (except the last one, that's my local hill back home in ON)

Special shout to @Motogp990 (the fist bump cameo at the start), was great to link up and get awesome laps together again after a 5 year hiatus since first connecting (and have since become good friends 👊🏻).

Just chiming in. Purchased a clearance unw8 from amplid. Cost less than 500 USD delivered to Long Island New York.
I was a little nervous after reading some of the delivery stories. It just came after 3 weeks. No packaging at all. Just a board in the plastic wrapper. I was scared to look. Everything looks fine. Unbelievable. Had my probable last day a week ago. It's a long time until next winter...

ahhh..,i feel for ya here big time , i know that feeling!!
i had a yes the Y turn up very in very similar cond. plus rust the whole way round the edges. it was in a proper box and still wrapped but the wrapping was all torn and frayed so i cud not uinderstand how it was deleiverd like it was , customs MUST have opened it and done something bec it was a total fkkn disgrace!
i sent a scathing mail to the shop and shipper asking if theyd sent me a used board!
i had to provide pics to the the shop and shipping agency. , the shop must have sent one as well bec the shipper owned it prety quickly and refunded me fully incl shipping without having to send it back, it took a while but i got there. it wasnt worth them the effort or cost to return it.

i was pretty psssssssssesd , i cud not sell it on as id get pennies for it but i just had to accept the brand new board is just my rockhopper now. i slapped it together my self as best i cud as it wasnt worht the price to get it done prefessionally for how much id ride it. You can mend it to be rideable but you may, like i did always have that , fk this sux is this the best it gets mind frame and want a new one.
actualll., i wud go bezerk if one of my " better " sticks was delivered to me like that . theres no reason for it except pathetic fkkn laziness.
give the fkks hell!!!
