  • Blunts/ Spruce 125/Rockered Condors at Northstar !

    Nice day today trying out new gear at Northstar on a cold blustery day ... Wendell was trying out the Blunts for the first time , and my son Jordan was trying out the Spruce Le 125s for the very first time .... I was the trusty video guy on my favorite Rockered Condors ...
    First up Wendell on the Blunts ... I thought he looked nice and smooth and comfy on those on his very first run ... well I will let Wendell tell you what he really thought
    Suffice it to say he traded them off for his super sweet Spruce 125 with his custom top sheet .. ps Wendell also has some snazzy new pants to match his Full tilts and custom 125's ....
    My son thought the 125s were quite fun although he doesn't think he will trade his snowboard or long skis for them , at least not yet .... he had a little fun with them in the park ...
    and me .... well I love my RC's !

    Wendell looked very smooth on the Blunts and has a sweet custom 125 setup with matching pants.

    Assuming you were using your new GoPro. Here's a tip that you probably already know. You have to be pretty close to the person you are filming, or they look miles away. Which is not always easy to do. I've learned that the hard way.

    2013 Spruce Sherpas w/Tyrolia Peak 11s
    2015 RVL8 Blunt XLs w/Tyrolia Attack 13s
    2018 Spruce Crossbows w/Tyrolia Peak 11s
    2020 RVL8 Sticky Icky Ickys w/Tyrolia SX 10s

      How many runs did Wendell take on the Blunts? I am surprised he even tried them - he is definitely a longboarder!

      Wendell is stylin' in those pants, Full Tilts and with that custom topsheet. Rickylink - you have competition in the fashion department my friend!
      In pursuit of Peace, Harmony and Flow.....

          Wendell , gave them a good try , three long top to bottom runs at Northstar ( Pioneer, then Drifter, then all the way from the top of the mountain to the village ) , so he could switch them off to his favorite 125s ....

            I could ride these boards, but they are just too wide. The only position I could really feel comfortable was in a very low crouch. When I skied more erect, I could not get a good edge without getting a lot of thigh burn. They had good speed and held an edge just fine if I was in the gorilla stance. I have much better choices to ride. The LE's are superb.
