Board: Winterstick Westcott Pro
Camber Option: Camber with micro rocker zones just before the contact points.
Bindings: K2 Lien AT medium
Stance: Goofy, 21in wide, 21/+3
Boots: DC Tucknee size 8
My Weight: 155lbs
Conditions: Mid spring but a little colder of a day. There are some micro pockets of softer snow and the snow is much harder in the shade than in the sun offering some varying conditions.
Flex: Solid just above mid flex with a little bit of a directional flex. A little softer in the nose than the tail, with an even matching torsional flex.
Stability: Stable and composed through crud and chunder without sacrificing liveliness and snap. It has a solid amount of energy and snap but it holds it’s line exceptionally well through many varying conditions.
Ollies/Pop: Not the absolute poppiest board I’ve ever been on, but it holds it owns and certainly above average. It controllable, with I honestly prefer over monster pop. It never surprised me and alway gave me what I needed. It is still full camber so it needs to be loaded but, it will get you up there an over whatever you need it to.
Butterability: This isn’t really what the board is built for and it can do it. The nose easier than the tail, but it takes more effort than it’s really worth. High speed power butters are solid and you can definitely lay into the tail at speed.
Carving: The defining characteristic of the board. Turn it any which way and it just wants to turn harder. Short snappy turns have tons of snap and energy, medium turns come around with little extra effort and hold it holds it’s speed throughout. Fast long carves are stable and you feel very locked in. Then, when you want to, lay it all the way over and put your hands down on the snow.
Rider in Mind: This is Seth Westcott’s pro model built as a one board quiver for anyone looking for a floaty, carvy, all mountain charger.
Personal Thoughts: This is damn near how a board would feel if I designed it myself. It is the right flex to charge around but be able to do so all day, has a very well dialed sidecut that turns exactly how I need it to. As a one board quiver this makes it up into the upper echelon for me.
