Board: Marhar Bohemian
Camber Option: High Rise Rocker. Flat between the feet with an abundance of rocker in the tips.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 177lbs
Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Over a foot and a half in the last 36 hours, grey skies, high winds, and low visibility in heavy wind loaded powder.
Flex: This board is playful in the far reaches of the tip and then more stiff under foot and through the middle. The torsional flex is there but not highly abundant.
Stability: Whether riding through rutted out fresh snow or chunder this board never once bucked me. It’s highly stable and very damp.
Ollies/Pop: You might have to lean a bit more to initiate the pop off the back foot, but when you do this board boosts you. I spent the better part of the day popping of rollers, rocks, and moguls while on the search for the fresh pow.
Butterability: The tips have a lot of play due to their shape and rocker when buttering. At high speeds in fresh pow this board just laid in and went for it.
Carving: Getting on a frozen wind scoured groomer on a powder board one would think you wouldn’t be able to turn. This board gripped well and let you carve around the mountain as you saw fit.
Rider in Mind: The guy that wants a powder twin that isn’t camber.
Personal Thoughts: I’ve had fun on this board over the last few years and this time wasn’t any different. The board is more damp than in the past in my opinion and that’s great when you’re riding heavy wind loaded snow that you have to punch through in order to make it spray. If you want to butter or spin around this thing does not disappoint.
