I remember starting to ride back in 89 on the white Sims,then a Look Lamar, then the Craig Kelly. I thought that was the best board until the Tao from Santa Cruz came out. The next day I sold my Burton and got the crazy shaped stick. Rode all the models. Then got hooked up by Joyride. I completely destroyed the Caddy, Moose, etc beyond all repair. In fact Joyride was embarrassed when I went to their place for a "return". Then came the Santa Cruz XXX. Awesome.
Later I moved to Colorado from Cali.(92-96) There I destroyed more boards, making me loose money.
My school mate rode for Never Summer. I tried his boards and fell in love. Smooth, fast, nimble, and local.
After 20+ years riding, the TITAN IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST SNOWBOARD EVER. No joke!
It is amazingly fast and responsive. 100% trustworthy. Solid luxury.
NOTE: NOT A BEGINNERS BOARD!!!!
