powdersnowsurfing, these boards might be alittle hard to gauge without the look of bindings..... this is the same board I have been posting lately....it's finished now... just need to peel the protective tape and grip it...it is 52" x 12.5" with absolutely NO BINDINGS...
Thanks for checking this stuff out

in this shot, you can see the ptex (sintered waxable )base laminated with epoxy to the hand pressed wood core and maple topsheet, the wood core is sandwiched constructed for strength, flex, and weight....left a small edge for protection and possible edge work,.....zero camber, zero rocker (aka reverse camber)

day .. it's a local shape from back in the seventies, the shaper was a
legend back then, and by looking at those serious sidecuts, I bet he
was a legit skier too, I would even gamble he might have crossed paths
with wintersticks very own Demetri Milovich... D.M. grew up about 25
miles south of where I grew up, and would be a few hours drive to this
shapers' local beach....due to this proximity....DM's style and designs
could have influenced this shaper, or vise versa...after all DM was a
landlocked frustrated surfer hence the surf jargon 'stick' name ...Who
knows .... Either way that board is so cool, and light as a

....imagine living in a two story glass houseboat with a mountain in the backyard that picks up lake effect snow....and an icy cobblestone pointbreak in your front yard that peels right for two hundred yards? (might have to click to enlarge houseboat picture ) ps this houseboat had neither

Kriss's second powdersurfstick, this one is for the groms in his family, we decided to knock off all the dangerous corners that's on his powderfish model, so the board won't cause an issue on a wipe-out....
we came up with this version "the 80's" because the nose, tail and sidecut are all based on an old eighties skateboard i have....the sidecut matches the toyfish somewhat, which worked well...
board has been pressed and logo'd.... core and topsheet 100% rock hard maple, sandwich construction....
ptex waiting patiently in the bottom of the press..
coming out of the press for a second time laminated to the sintered ptex (fully waxable)
logo as seen thru the cloudy clear ptex
finished and fully gripped with hydroturf.... alongside another 52" rough cut blank
the rails :)
made for powder, but has some flat deck characteristics
super rugged, and grippy hydroturf decking
causal little kick in the tail, it can be ollied (with bump leash loop)
thanks for checking in...
