|RVL8 2011 Condor 110cm Skiboards
Not surprisingly, since it's release 3 seasons ago, the widest skiboard made has proven itself to be the best 4x4 powder skiboard you can buy. What is surprising however is how fun and capable it is on groomers. As you would expect, at 16.5cm tip and tail and 13.7cm underfoot, the Condor is right at home in bottomless powder but open them up on piste and they plow through anything that gets in your way, allowing you to worry less about for/aft stability and concentrate more on laying out high speed carves. Designed for the advanced intermediate to expert rider, if you're planning on heading to the backcountry or out on powder days the Condor should be in your quiver. Artwork by the infamous Dave Cox.

I have owned a pair of Condors since the first model came out but have not had a chance to really use them until moving to Colorado. Being an east coast rider, I rarely felt the need to pull these out of the quiver because my Revolts tore through even the biggest powder days at Jay Peak. I knew this would not be the case on a powder day in Colorado, and I was right. In fact, on my first powder day here I did not even think twice about pulling out the Condors. At first, they felt quite different because of the extended length and width and it took a few runs to fall into a comfortable groove with them. But once I did, I could not imagine riding deep powder in anything else. They handled beautifully and floated effortlessly in knee deep powder. I had to alter my normal stance slightly but found them to handle just as smoothly as my shorter sticks. I coasted through tight trees and maneuvered moguls with ease. The typical strain on my thighs from sitting back in powder was barely felt as my day flew by. I HIGHLY recommend the Condors to anyone who rides deep powder. They handle beautifully and offer the same precision ridding you would expect from smaller Skiboards with the added benefit of an almost effortless powder float. Looking forward to open them up on some groomers next!
