Powder and Jumps

decfirstpostmejump Powder and Jumps

Its been a great start to 2011/12 season. Friday started out with 10 inches of new snow. A bit wind blown but really fun. Found ourselves a little patch of pow and built a jump. My boys built an even bigger kicker off to the side that we ended up having fun on. Its great when you get to the point where your kids do the work for ya.

Been meaning to post some video on how to swap out subs with my trucks. Here’s a short bit with some riding on the new 145.

Snow in the backyard

It dumped pretty good this week. Views from the shop made it hard to get anything done.

Jordan and Oliver stopped by which was reason enough to get out and ride a bit.

I guess if you hang out with Jordan you better be able to ride a snowskate on the box.

For me, backside wall rides never get old.

While we were riding the bus dropped off the kids and well it was hard to get a run in after that. I’ve raised a group of poachers.

Product page is still unfinished even after I promised to have it ready. Been shipping out boards just as soon as I get them made but I hope to get some complete pics soon. The prices will raise just a bit for this season so if you order before I get my new product page up you will save!

Well, its been awhile since my last post, but I’m back and at least for the first part of the winter will be posting weekly updates. Its been a pretty hectic month getting ready for the season. I think this is the most prepared I have ever been before the lifts have started. The new shop has been great and it has afforded me the luxury of a curing booth for the decks and subs. After pressing they all go into this 70 degree room for another 5 days to insure the epoxy cures completely.

Although the recycled graphics from the last few years was fun I’m glad to be rid of someone else’s logo on my stuff. This season we’re looking at white, with some soon to be added stickers.

The sliding truck plates are black but other then that I’m pretty much sticking with the same design. Three hole locations and two height options with a quick release pin.

Black and green grip for the tops, with a built up tail option available too.

The subs from last season worked great but there is always a tweak that can push them even further. I reworked both the 145 and 135 forms for the better. I most excited about the 135 with the slightly longer base and lower sweeps to the nose and tail. Always looking for that short board that will float deep pow. The new subs are in white.

One great thing about the Chiller shop is that there is a great testing zone in the back. Just need a bit more snow to soften those landings.

The shop is clicking right along but the website is badly in need of a product page and that is next on the agenda.  Expect more pics and prices next week.
