    Thanks Man, hopefully see you at Copper again. Thank Bola again for keeping me in SG's when you see him for me!

    Hey Martin,

    What are your Go To boards for freeriding or teaching? Nice foils...

    They were in the full quiver picture I didn't post!
    For general teaching, beginners, basic freestyle/boxes/rails etc, I use a 155 Never Summer SL-R. For more advanced/high speed/freeride students I use my 159 Raptor. It is still really agile at slow speeds, carves switch easily and is stable at speed (got it up to 65mph last winter).
    My bindings for both are Rome Targas, last years and this years. For boots Nike Kaiju (softer) and Rome Marshalls (stiffer).

    I do still get to teach a few Alpine lessons a season (I think there are only 2 of us in Utah that offer them through an official Ski School), and would usually bring both SG's to the lesson and chat to my student then decide which to use.

    Sweet boards MD. Just wondering, why Vist and not a Boiler Plate or something like that?

    I think I've figured out why I like the SG cheetah graphics... similar theme as my beloved Safari!!!

    +1 on the Safari!
    Ended up with the Vist because of an 'offer I couldn't refuse', bumped into a Vist Rep and hit it off and did some contra deals. Would love up try the Bomber one day, love supporting Finn too!

    Good point, mc-alex!

    The Vist is a proven design that is still heavily used in the World Cup. The best SG riders in Landgraaf (men and women) were using Vist plates. Therefore I donīt understand why SG left out the inserts. I know that some racers on different levels are not happy about the decision. First I thought that SG wanted to push their own plate system, but as they are not even selling one at the moment, it is even more mysterious.

    There might be "better" systems out there, but it would still be nice to have the option.

    Of course, it is no problem to drill holes for the Vist plate in the middle, but who likes to do that?

    Hi Martin, hope you are well. You have a mighty fine quiver. Bit of a change from the beloved PJ's. I am bringing my 7 out of retirement this year, should be a hoot.
    How do you find the smaller SG, I love my 163.
    You Bet

    Yup, I knew that, but I'm a rear locked kind of guy, so that's cool.

    Hi Darren, you'd love the 57, reminds me of your PJ5S...that was a fun little board! It feels like my slalom skateboard, that's why I dig it.
    Let me know how the 7 rides, sometimes those old boards aren't always as cool as we remember. I finally got an Agression Stealth...unless you are going fast AND on nothing steep, it was pretty awful :-(
    Hope the 7 is more fun, I still miss my Hot Logicals...

    Mine had a tendency to hook the nose and toss me over the bars.

    That is the most I have EVER spent on a board...by a long way. If anyone sees me heading towards it with a drill and T-nut kit...shoot me, as I have clearly become deranged

    Are you bragging or what?

    Why do you have two SGs 185? Did you like the new design better ?

    What is your boot size? Binding angles look pretty high ...

    Except for one (maybe two) board(s) this is a nice collection!!!

    That is a virus. Looks like the original graphics have been painted over for some reason.

    I think it's a VIRUS Asym with a sintered graphite topsheet like the base material to get no sticky snow on it

    Mani, what is the waist on that Kessler? (It seems a bit narrower than usual. Maybe that is just my eyes.) Also, what binding angles are you running on those boards? Thanks,

    Pokkis, you seem to like Coilers ...

    Nice collection!

    Any differences between the Tinkler and the BBP? Height, Weight, Mechanism?
