with the short/wide trend K2 should bring back the Fat Bob. first board I every used (was a rental)


That board was a lifesaver for those with adult-sized feet.

I think the board I'm riding is a Gnu. 163. I'm not sure. Bought it a while back and I've since forgotten. roflmao


Nothing is obscene provided it is done in bad taste.

the one I rented must have been circa '92-ish. it was a directional board, not a twin tip

The K2 Manifest looks pretty nice. Directional Twin (same nose / tail specs, but 3/4" setback on the binding mounts). Mostly Camber with a bit of rocker at each end to loosen it up and give a bit more float.

I'd ride a Wide, but they make it standard width too.

That thing looks sick.

Took a random trip to Portland last week and ended up getting a day at Timberline. Beautiful day, limited terrain, but super fun. Just got back from a couple fun groomer days at Kirkwood. Pretty much everything is open, though plenty of obstacles once you venture off piste. Finally got a chance to get the new board dialed. Thing carves like a mofo, and definitely a lot better holding the rail heelside than my old board ever could. Thanks Q_Surf, board rec was on point! Can't wait to get it into some deep stuff.

All hard pack today. All that camber was perfect. Its a medium weight board and stiff but not to stiff. Board is a rocket ship! Goes so fast. If you aint careful itll try to kill you. Not sure if its the factory wax but it just glides like crazy. Doesnt want to stop

Friday I skied Mammoth and hit mostly dropout 1. It was firm but edgable, with some fun pockets. The last two days have been a blast in Dave's, perfect Mammoth windbuff, lots of spray.

Super sick Dirksen Derby weekend at Bachelor. My 13 year old managed to grab 3rd in the 14 and under grom division (he's wanted a podium in this event for years). Lots of super rippers shredding the course and the mountain (Jeremy Jones, Austen Sweetin etc.). Alex Lopez raced on a Lib snow skate. Always such a rad fun event that fully embodies what snowboarding should be. I was stoked to be up there on a board again after the 22 month odyssey I have had with my broken leg. Good times with great people in our amazing shred community raising money for great causes (Protect Our Winters, Oregon Adaptive Sports, etc.).

Our weather forecast looks wet and warm coming up so fingers crossed we get snow and not the alternative. Hope everyone here scores some pow over the holidays!

Speaking of Austen Sweetin, if you haven't watched this, do it now. He's easily one of my favorite riders these days. Watch it all the way through.... there's a lot packed into 10 minutes..
