It’s that time of the year again when the days start getting shorter and the nights grow cold and long. With this turn of the season marks one of the first demo days of the year for shop people at Loveland Ski Area. Here’s a brief recap of what I was able to hop on after day 1.First board of the day was the Nitro Team (gullwing) with some Raiden Blackhawks everything I disliked about the Subpop was vanished with this deck. Super solid all mountain freestyle choice totally stoked on this. Followed it up with a jaunt over to Forum and tried out the Shakas on the Destroyer, Youngblood, and Scallywag all with Chilli Dog Rocker. Talk about a loose feeling rocker and wtf does the Shaka even do besides have too many moving parts? Anyone?
Hit up ride and hopped on the Crush with NRC’s totally canted out at 5 degrees. Not the best board to binding combo but I’ll take what can fit my hoof. Back to the Big B umbrella to try out the Easy Living flying V with cartel EST’s and Custom flying v with Infidel non EST. Easy Living was absolutely fucking sick, cartels can still blow me, infidels were heavy, and the custom is a pile of shit plank. After those tried out the Rossi Angus with Cuda’s what a heavy plank that has the most wacked out reverse camber and flex pattern ever. Also the bindings can blow me. After that tried out the Capita Ultrafear FK with Contacts and the Horrorscope with Forces. People can argue with me but I was folding the Ultrafear in half on every butter while the Horrorscope was a more damp and stable ride.
If you have any requests for day 2 get them in now cause I’m out the door at 8 a.m. to go for round 2. As always these are my take on things and like I always say check around for other reviews and crap to see what’s going on.
