new hotness

old and busted

found this one sitting in the archives from just over two years ago. first splitboard project, first real backcountry experience, mila there to party all the time. the inserts were not flush, no inside edges, shitty broken morrow torch (foamcore). this board died riding down buffalo mountain from the summit, others have some and gone but nothing worth remembering.
sleds made it all fast and easy, burning arms instead of quads, endless pow at the touch of the throttle.
the real dream is an hour long run from the top of the world back to my door, no noise, no gas, exhausted.

new hotness
after almost a week working on this project all the hardware got attached this morning. dusted the old skins and poles off and set out from my backyard up buffalo again. the 6mm core and asymmetrical rocker help this monster skin up through the deepest of powder. powslayer sidecut makes for effortless turns on the way down. i didnt quite make it as far as i wanted (standby for technical difficulties) but with one day under the ole belt im ready for more and more.

the split was layed up with entropy bioresin (a new product for us up here in summit) they offer the same waterproofing and flex characteristics as the industry standard resin systems but are 70% bio based. better for the earth, better for us, pretty rad idea.
