  • Spliffs at Vail

    I rode them today at Vail in a half a foot of heavy powder. Rode them set back. Jjue was with me on his pair set up the same way. I had tried these last year on hard snow and didn't care for them. After today, I like them more than the sherpa in soft conditions. They turn so easy in heavy powder and are incredibly stable. I am sold ont this skiboard. I never thought a sub 110 board could perform for me like this.

          That's great news, I'm glad to hear it. You're a tough customer so this is big.

            No pressure but there are only 12 pairs left. It's likely the Spliff will sell out over the next 4 weeks.

              This pair was the raffle pair that I won at Shredfest year before last. Bill, bless his heart added a pair of rear inserts to them for me last year. I didn't get a chance to ride them last year. Thanks for another great board.

                I can sell you a pair. They are the red plad pattern. I won't be needing 3 pairs anymore.

                  Spent the last two days on them at Bachelor in Oregon. Set back they were killer. I rode with a dozen ski club friends all really good skiers in a half foot of powder. No problem hanging with them. These are are great boards.

                    After the 4th day of riding them, it was a real pleasure to switch to Crossbows. The width can be tiring after a lot of time on the spliffs.

                      Agreed, wide skis and hard snow make my feet ache. I donít know how people ride boards like the XLs on the ear coast. Guess itís just another sign that Iím getting older[emoji53]
