Okay, so after several years of splitboarding I'm still 'clutzy' and bang my edges when I'm in tour mode. This board is f-ing BEAUTIFUL, but I'm concerned with delam'ing the edges from stepping all over myself... anyone have any experience with this board and the durability of its top-sheet???
I used this board all last season. Its performance is exemplary in nearly all conditions, although as a Baker Boy I'm usually looking for the steep and deep. The board is a visual masterpiece, and the wood grain is so damn classy... timeless, and hence why I called it the stick for a soul rider. I did have an issue with the top sheet delaminating a little at the tip and tail mostly due to people bonking into me in lift lines (they must just love the board so much that they wanted a closer look). A little clear epoxy and a clamp fixed it right up and the board is as good as new.
Performance wise it is really nice and, if you keep the edges sharp, it will hold a line through a turn on the best or worst snow days on the mountain. It finds edge quick when coming down from flight time, and even rides well switch. The board isn't super wide, but plently wide enough for my size 10.5 boots. If you're a bigfooter then you might look to either get a wide model of this board (if they make one) or look elsewhere for your epic-stick. Cheers.
Love this boot. Plain and simple.
So easy to get on; adjustable in seconds; warm as can be; light as a feather; Perfect for my riding style (not a park guy, more of a powder hound who loves to get vertical).
Super Light, firm fit, with enough movement to stay smooth while riding. I don't like a boot that is too solid and this was a bit softer than others I tried. Also priced significantly under all Burton boots in its caliber. Comfortable fitting and true to your shoe size. The only question I have is how long will they last, and they appear quite solid for now!
Write your question here... I go between a 10 and a 10.5 for sizing... any suggestions for how this boot fits? I've gone small in the past and paid for it with crushed toesies, and I've been blistered bad from hiking in boots that are too big, and unfortunately I live in the boonies far away from the shop....
