New Custom MTH Board - "Potato Chip" - Sharing the Stoke


Got me a new custom MTH Board!! Mike bent over backwards, with all my crazy inputs, to create a whole new mold (bending metal in the process) just to get this board pressed out. His boards are works of ART!!
Love the "bleeding" rails, like I just sliced a shark...
Video of first ride here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn6vdd5AHMs

So, here it is...
165cm x 46cm
3/4" CONCAVE
1.75" Rocker

Tossed some cooshy Switch kiteboarding pad/straps in twin tip mode.
Some KGB 2.5" fins in "mutant" config to accommodate my "goofy" stance. (Thanks Serge!)
Edges like a home-sick angel upwind...yet, surfs like a bigger board when you flatten it out...so fun!!
Turned out 2.5lbs lighter than my old LF Proof 161 board.
Still stoked, and more videos to come...as I get out on it...





If you get a chance, check out his boards!! http://www.mthboards.com/
KITE ON!!

Sweet Crazyherb! Very nice board indeed. From the sound of it on the video you were having a blast. Caught some nice air in the mix. Way to go. :thumbup::thumbup:



Kites:
Born-Kite LongStar-2 (3.5m, 5.5m, 7.5m, 9.5m, 12.5m);
Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)
