|In order to know how to use the tools, first one must know the process of how the tools were built. The act of regressive thought is a taboo in the petri dish, so said the history in finding the final graphic of the second installment of the Revel8 Ben Wannamaker Pro Model. While fasting for 4 days Ben and J.P King mulled to puke a graphic onto boards that have a grocery list of contest placements over the past half decade in the sport. From sweeping the European Championships, 2 Gold’s at the Wachusett Triple Challenge, a podium performance at the World Cup in Romania and taking out 130 skiers and snowboarders in the New York Adirondacks, these boards have already long proven themselves as a jibbing staple. No more judges, these boards are for you the jibbers. It is recommended that these be worn with Tom Waits and some assortment of bling and dangle. Ideal for beginner to advanced skiboarders alike looking for more of a traditional skiboard feel that can only be provided by sub 99cm skiboards.
RVL8 skiboards feature the best ingredients available:
Minimum rider height for best performance with:
Width profile: 14/10.5/14cm
Ben commenting on his new boards –
the ideas are supposed to be supportive of one another as well as in conflict with the next… the left board is a sad, apocalyptic scenario (bees, colony collapse disorder, farmers loss of profits and oncoming despair) or miss priorities and has significantly less detail then the right board… the lack of detail working as the metaphor … as i don’t understand the reasons why we think and act the way we do as a global community. Although i want to celebrate that constant desire for `why`as so many other humans, babies, artists (dizzy) have, with turning despair into something constructive… so you can literally see the detail in the graphic grow from the bottom left corner into more and more detail (a hopeful metaphor) in a rippling fashion to the top right of the board which is a more cool blue, and juxtaposing idea of where the priorities should lie…. nature, purposeless play (the child and the tuba) and the precariousness of the two ideas being expressed through the tightrope walker over the child’s head…

These are great, high-quality skiboards. Feel very stable, have great speed, and carve like a dream. They are tight and responsive. Graphics look great in person too. The boards are a great length at 98cm, maintaining both stability at speed and the wonderful skate-like feel of skiboards.

These skiboards are great. They are very controlable in the park and anywhere else. I ran them hard and no problems but need to get some loctite for the screw holes and they should be back on the slopes!
I picked up a pair of these on eBay, as a random impulse buy. Best impulse buy EVER! So far I have only run these on greens while teaching my 5 year old, and a tiny bit of park, but they are perfectly responsive and faster than you think they are going to be. I’m only 5′ tall so I’m slowly increasing the length of the skiboards in my quiver, and these have been a fantastic addition. When they’re done, I’ll probably buy a current model pair to replace them, I like them that much!
