    14-30m SCR Bamboo Donek with a nice matte carbon topsheet and a bangin chrome mud flap girl on the tail is in the incubation process. Hope this one makes it past the censors unlike the now retired General Lee. Also looking forward to a hard boot specific split of the new powder shape Sean and I worked on this past season. The push for this deck other than fantastic on snow performance in the widest possible allowable conditions is to be as light as possible without a huge sacrifice in durability. Lots of carbon and other lightening techniques to be incorporated in this one. A "race weight" unit also in the works.

    I will never forget the day I had some years back on Bordys Silly Good. What an amazing ride but it was limited in wanting to do only city block sized turns and no other, put in a very broad but super usable variable side cut and wamo, options are abundant in the turn dept. The General was unbelievably good, best I have ever had the pleasure to ride, I am hoping this next board is even better.

    I have no problem turning the silly good in a half block:-P

    Wish I had one up here at hood right now, there is plenty of room to let that,thing run right now and with the soft snow it would be nice to have the nose length

    There you go.

    It was in 2007 when i rode the original Gladiator for the first time. What can I say: It was love at first sight. I ordered one taylor made to my needs and my weight. Back then, this was the best alpine board I could ever ride. Totally infected I wanted more: Sold the Gladi and got a Berserker Zylon. Great ride, could do the same as the Gladi but needs a lot of speed. The Berserker is therefore a bit more limited. I added a Pureboarding Bastard and a Virus UFC narrow to the quiver. But still there was the Gladi somewhere in the back of my head - still the echo of: "The best board I have ever ridden". Now Virus came up with something a new sexy piece.

    Virus Gladiator II Zylon Evo III.

    I couldn't resist!

    176cm length, 17cm waist, variable sidecut, camembert nose, 3d zylon carbon construction. Different to the first Gladiator is the little tailkick, which i appreciate very much.

    Pic quality is not so super. Just some quick shots with the mobile. The board is still on the other side of the Atlantic, while I am sitting here.

    ..on the new VIRUS Don't give her too much sun, you have to use some suncream on that Zylon.

    More serious, have read somewhere that too much sunlight does no good to Zylon, but may be that isn't true.

    A man has to do, what a man has to do!

    I have a "Schirmbar" shaped beach bar near my house. Let's see how the board works out there. I'll send pix as soon as I have it here.

    And yes, I have ordered a double package of Zylon Suncscreen Butter. Got a good deal on it.

    That's what I was referring to, it does, but the zylon has to be raw(open to the air and suns rays), the urethane or whatever finish on the top of the board will keep the sun from touching the zylon so its OK. It's not like an afterthought adding it to the top of a MADD

    I bet it confuses the **** out of the customs guys at the airport too!

    Can't remember there being too much in the way of snowboarding there.

    What I know from the FB forum is that the board is in Germany waiting for snow So that's even worse: I can see it, you in the Dutch Antilles and your dream board somewhere on the other end of the world. Didn't know people just could tease themselves that way...

    It's not even the customs guys. It is more about: How can I explain the check-in girl, that I take this thing to Curacao as sports equipment?

    "How many pieces of luggage do you have?"
    "1 piece and this .. eeehm ... snowboard ...as sports equipment"
    "okay, one piece and a surfboard."
    "Not surfboard! Snowboard!"
    "Sorry Sir. You wanna bulls..t me?"
    "Nope"
    "I do not accept this. Makes 200 euros for bulky items."
    "But I have my swimming goggles in there as well."
    "Why didn't you tell me before? Okay 20 Euros for sports equipment."
    "Thanks"

    Hans: No prob, with the teasing. I have plenty to do here:

    As for the "congrats" go they sure belong to Frank. Yes, I really wanted it this way, but Frank put the extra work and skills into it and delivered a design masterpiece! Everyone who saw it so far says, too nice to put in the snow. Yea right

    So, why not make it a week or even longer and you come to Aspen next Feb. As it seems there will be a nice group of crazy Euro riders coming together again, now that will be fun!

    Cheers

    Yes, but don't show up with this ugly thing.


    niceveeerynice


    My girlfriend edit says: The model year written on the virus boards is 2011 but this is the board porn thread for 2012. That means to me:

    1. I need to check, what's written on my own board.
    2. Frank sold us the leftovers from last year
    3. Ray, Hans and probably myself have to get outta here with these boards.
