Im working in Myoko for the season. Snow has just started really.
We had 18cm then 75 cm then 35cm then a day off. Today we have light snow, maybe 10cm or so.

Heres another one. 170cm, 125 edge, 30 nose, 15 tail, 8m sidecut.
100% bamboo core, a bit of carbon tape in there too, super thin and heaps of pop.
3.5kg and it still has the protective sticker on the base so it will come down a bit after the grind.

Well this ended up being my go to board this season, by far the best board I have ever produced. Im surprised to read the old post above and see that it is full bamboo core, I thought there was paulownia in it also.
Everyone who rode it loved it too which is always a great sign.

A bit of field testing

All the best on both fronts. Might be a while until all the snow melts this year on honshu. Good luck with the new arrival. It's a lot of fun (plus some hard work!).
