It must be that new ski smell.

It's probably because I'm deluded enough that I believe they will make me ski better

What is it about us? I think many of us harbour a desire that we'll actually break our equipment just so buying new stuff is justifiable and surely that's got to be a symptom of a sick mind.... hasn't it?

Alright, I'd like to say that all eople with 3 letter forum names beginning with M, who've been heli skiing in NZ are twats with the social skills of a dead horse and should probably be banned from the internet in general, as well as sharp objects.

I now have a board that is still unused but in the up and coming season will be 2 seasons old, it should be a cracking board and nobody else on the hill will be rocking the same styles, sweet. steeze an shizzle.

Burton Baron?

Haha, nope, that was my mates, I went to his leaving party last night coincidentally he's off travelling South America with his girlfriend now.

You've given me an excuse to post this picture again though

When I broke my B4s this season I was quite excited to get some BCs or Squads as they told me that they were out of B4s, then a pair got found in the warehouse and sent to me (I then managed to tear the brake off them first morning out). They still kick ass, I just wanted something different, and I don't really know why!?

I've got an old pair of B3s (same as modern B4s) and they're good fun but a llittle long for me. Ali picked up some squads piss cheap at the end of the year and that is a BEAST of a ski. Embarrassed to admit I'm not sure I'd be man enough for 'em tho'!

I dunno where I'd ski that needs Squads, my B4s are enough for pretty much anything I can do to them at Winter Park.

How big did Ali get them? Is he still a mentalist?

Could someone furnish me with a link for squads? I cant seem to find them. Are they a scratch variant?

Have just stumbled upon Armada ARGs... hahaha! man. crazy. harking back to the spatula there, the old inverse sidecut thing.

Well after 6 seasons my trusty 2001 Seth Morrison Signature skis will be replaced with a pair of K2 Pubic Enemies next season.

Yep, essentially, if you aren't Hugo Harrison or Dan Treadway, they are going to ski you, not the other way around!
