In the mid to late 00’s a mate of mine at the time was getting boards made in Utah and had TM’ed a brand too. Unfortunately I haven’t seen Shane for years now but he gifted me my first 3 boards and I still think of his generosity often. His boards have taken me around 15 Southern Hemi resorts plus a Heli in the backcountry of TC in NZ.
L-R / 155, 157, 163.
Fast forward to 2015 and my current 160 Snurfs Up powder destroyer. Can’t quite explain the feeling of opening that box. Nudging 40 and felt like a kid at Christmas. My first custom from @offshoresnowshapes when they were still based here. 10 Japanese resorts plus a Backcountry tour, 4 French resorts with another minimum 5 in Japan to come this trip.
I’ve already told Mon I’ll ride this board to the front of his new factory in Moiwa to thank him personally one day.
