I call that moment "tip-in". Every board has a different tip-in feel, some very abrupt. So I'd say it is the board, but also some of what you are feeling is working through that tip-in on an unfamiliar board. Does it happen more on toe or heel, or both? I ask because one time by mistake I set the front up favoring toe and the board wanted to brake and turn uphill.
Tip-in is a good word to call it.

Happens to me only on toe side. I've chalked it up to me not really getting fully on edge when on a flatter traverse, or possibly being a little heavy on the nose when the trail didn't support it.

Took the board our cat skiing the other day. Man what a dream. Just a shame the virus has brought an end to our season here. The dart is an amazing surfer, and I feel like I just got to understand that over the past 5 or so days on it.

Same here in Europe unfortunately. Shit is hitting the fan now properly and I can’t imagine this to change in time to get some more snowboarding in this season.

Totally agree on the Dart though. It’s so much fun in pow. I’d love to try the pencil in deeper stuff as well but loved those quick turns so much...

Next season gonna test 160 Dart/CR 164 for sure. So curious how such a fat waist with Koruas turny sidecut would work.

10,7 m on the Trenchdigger is huge when Jerries show up. Plus it’s quite narrow at the back foot with that taper. I want to keep my boots no more than 0,5 cm overhang each side to really lay it over Eurocarving and I’m not a fan of steep double ++

Size 9 burton photons
My friend is 155-160 lbs 9 US Tactical (though I push him into 8,5 he also has if he gets custom insoles) and he said my CR 159 is very similar to his Amplid Surfari 157.
For me (185 lbs 9,5 US Tactical) the CR 59 is a board I can push hard at carve but I can also slow down and carve between Jerries. I don’t need open groomers for it. Like a daily resort carver that I can ride 4 days 7 hours in a row.
At your weight I believe it would be a little carving rocket but not something you cannot handle for sure as the turn initiation is really easy.

Sounds perfect. How does the CR handle mixed crappy snow conditions? I know it handles it, but can you feel it handling it? Is it damp?

It is basically a full camber, quite stiff and quite heavy so handles chunder well.
My last day this season was on the CR, I do it it very rarely but at the end of the day when the wet sticky slush was hard to carve on I straight lined a few red slushy runs with big moguls and it handled no problem. It was pretty retarded but fun. Just keep your knees bent.

Has anyone been on the Trenchdigger? I found one at a good price but can't find any reviews.

This just makes me wanna cry...

btw, has anyone tried the Korua splitboards? I was very close to buying a split the other day but with the whole lock down and warm whether basically no point this year.

I had initially looked at the Amplit Milligram but have now heard from a couple of friends that the board actually seems to be quite fragile (2 out of 3 friends snapped their boards within a couple of weeks without riding any particularly prone runs or anything).

Saw that Korua have the Pencil split and or Tranny finder / Escalator as slightly lighter options and am tempted. Particularly the Pencil as I then would have an excuse to buy both Dart and Pencil ;)

Since they are doing a Dart split you will have to get at least two split boards :D
