Picked up our first Jones Snowboards last season and paired them with Union Bindings. The wife rode her Flagship more than anything and absolutely loves it. My Aviator only has a few days on it and is ready to go for this season. Also picked up some new 686 insulated pants and ThirtyTwo TMTwo XLT Boots which I am taking to REI to heat mold this weekend. Bring it.

I have a new job thats gonna kill my season. toilet

Which probably means that there will be epic snow in the sierras. You're welcome cheers

Just in case I couldn't pass on a deal for Burton EST Genesis X Bindings to put on my skeleton key. Everything else this season is old.

long shot, anyone have experience with Korua snowboards shrug when I got my Jones Flagship they didn't have the 165w out yet. i could use a little more surface area for powder. Looking at selling my 163w Flagship and getting a 164 Pencil

No, but that thing looks pretty wide. 26.9 cm waist on the 164 (my Slayblade 163w is 26.3cm). Surprised they don't call it a "Wide".

Do you ever have an issue with the straps coming loose? Union now has an updated hardware kit to correct this if you do. Just a heads up!

was up in Seattle last week and stopped into Evo. they said all the Korua boards are built wide. specs yep, they're wide. got a 26.9 Neversummer "wide" so that's good for me. The nose is huge at 324. Was also looking at the Dart. wondering how their construction is. and weight. there were none at Evo when I went there.

Never ridden one but I've been eyeing them for a while. Love their shapes, clean aesthetics and their vids are always my favorites. Let me know how it rides.

Like Stu said, my experience has been that they are solid. Don't think I care for the mini disk 4x2 as much as a standard 4x4 mount, but its supposed to allow the board to flex better underfoot..??..

Once on a really cold day I did have some ice pack into the toe strap where it meets the baseplate and couldn't push them forward enough to go over the cap of my boot.

How much do you want for the Flagship?

My resort board is a 162w Welcome to the West and my split is a Jones Explorer.

If the Flagship was a split I would be interested. Thinking maybe I need a stiffer split, and a more fun resort board to fill out the quiver. I also have a 158 Rome Agent but it's a 2006 so I mostly consider that a loaner board.
