2013 Lamar Fixx Used and Reviewed
I have to believe that the graphics for this are directly inspired by the Bloods vs Crips gang war. So just be careful of where you’re rocking this thing. I will say this board is a bit on the stiffer side and probably not for everyone.
Board: Lamar Fixx
Camber Option: Three stage rocker. Flat for a good portion with a little bit of rise up near the contact points.
Bindings: Raiden Phantoms
Stance: 22.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 UFO Size 10
My Weight: 165
Resort: A Basin
Conditions: Sunny slightly cloudy skies with super warm temps and slushy snow.
Flex: More jump oriented flex that’s stiffer between the feet with a tiny bit more give in the tips.
Stability: Super stable this board could run over an Elk and make it feel like you were going over a garden hose.
Ollies: This board is designed to pop. The carbon array just lends itself to loading up the tips and snapping to the moon.
Pop On Jumps: It’s super at home hitting jumps and doesn’t disappoint, granted the jumps at A basin definitely did.
Butterability: You have to work it a bit harder than other alternate cambered decks but it’s still doable. Just be prepared when really loading the tips for it to want to snap back.
Jibbing: I’d say it’s great for high speed jibbing but anything else it takes more effort than it’s worth.
Carving: Sidecuts deep enough to rail a hard turn and not feel like you’re going to wash out as well as doing minor set up turns.
Rider in Mind: All mountain guy that wants something a bit stiffer. Or the heavier rider that wants pop out of their board.
Personal Thoughts: It’s a little too stiff for me personally but for a bigger guy this might be ideal. The carbon array is designed to give this board the most snap and response out of carving and loading the tips.
