  2. well, try to contact Martin Sammet of pogo and book a test for the next year:D You can test for a weekend for fee (you have to pay only the shipping cost for return the board) of with 100€ you can test the board for a week!
  3. no, i've ride the L80, is a longoboard type. In powder is a beast but is more allaround board. Of this model they do l70, 170cm, 24.8 waist, 7.5mt radius People that i know have bought a pogo are very satisfied, they have buy the board 10years ago and during this time they've change all their edges and the top of the board.
  4. i've ride the l80 longboard (in europe you can write to their email and then they send you the board you want to test). 180cm, quite narrow, these board have frontback (you must drive pushing on your frontfoot for accellerate and on your backfoot for brake). Really amazing board, lighter, responsive, and they offer you a free lifetime repair service (top, back and edges). You can check the DUPRAZ d1, is wider that pogo boards, but same concept, frontback, longboard and now you can buy at their online shop for 540euro!
  5. nice pic! [OT] what board is the grey one on the right? [/OT]

I think I´ve just convinced myself to buy a long swallowtail. I reckon if the nose floats out, it will be easier to swing it. And imagine being able to go thru flat section - would it? I really wish that the snowboard manufactures des
  7. you think will be good for deep powder? Next year she come with us to niseko for a month and the perfect board is an obligation:D For BC she has a splitboard, so we're looking for a specific powder board
  8. She normally ride a 149, she's a great controll of the board, she like woods and open bowls, for this reason i'm asking if something long will be great (another option is a volkl selecta 158).

  10. Thank's mulkabochi:D There was a spring snow and some hundred of people hike the mountain, the great think is hiking and climbing, nothing special the descend. But in winter the terrain is really steep, many drop and open space. In niseko... well the snow i've find in niseko i've not found in any other place on the earth... and for that reason the next winter i'll be again in niseko!!! The next goal is "Capanna Margherita", on the same place but at 4550 mt! I think in the next week i'll able to post this new report:D
  11. Hi, with this post i would like to share my splitboard-hike of 10-04-2011 to the beautifoul Monterosa - Alagna - Piemonte (Italy). Our goal was "Colle del Lys (4200mt)" but we've time trouble at the start of the day and we've arrived a bit under, at "Colle Vincent (4050mt)". We've start from alagna, take three gondola-funifor until "Indren Glacier". Beautifoul weather, no clouds!!! Me and my girlfriend have dress our splitboard and other 4 friends their skis. Let's start!!! This photo is of "Grifetti groove", many people in climbig! the final piece is very steep (40 and 45°)
  12. Great choice pete! I've a question: for a girl, 168cm x 48kg it's indicate a fish 156 or she can handle a 150(2010 s-rocker fish 150cm)? She's looking only for a powder board. Thank's!

Things happen ... still time till Easter. is snowing now in Piemonte, On saturday Alagna FreerideParadise will be a really cool place!
  15. hi tex, this year really poor powder in italy, but in swiss the situation is good (my mountain house in near swiss border). I've mentionet x1 beacuse i've test two days in niseko deep powder, the convex is like TBT but only on the nose, + the board has a powder rocker, lighter and superfastboard. I'm fall in love with that shape. I've not try the other board and i'm asking some opinion for this reason. I would like to buy a specific powder board for get the max enjoy in powder day with no compromise:D

I will go for length than width anytime, and more importantly that it has a big maximum stance width (example 26) so I can move my bindings. I ride a 159 Atomic Radon CT (swallow tail) and it has 22 inch max stance, and I ride
  17. Hi all, as i mentionent in my trip report i've reat a japanese powder board, Field Earth Design, mod x1 (165cm). I love this board, i've ask at rent shop and they sell my that board with 4 rents at 100.000YEN (new is something like 126.000YEN). I can spend this money but in italy there are condition to use often this board. I can buy a new jones hovercraft for 250euro (27500YEN) but i've never test this board and in italy no test day for this. For a few +money i can take a volkl selecta 163. Like FieldEart i'm searching a light board with a fast base, fish profile and quick e
