    Hey Folks,
    Ogasaka snowboards sent me 3 splitboards to demo out for people interested in a high quality, Japanese made splitboard. These boards have insane craftsmanship, with very tight interface. They are traditional camber, with early rise tip and the tail snubbed to allow a drop in powder. These are true freeride boards made for powder, steeps, coulie's or open bowls. I'll note, these can carve hard on groomers as well.
    The boards Ogasaka sent are next years '21-'22 models: Women's 152cm, 159cm and 164cm splitboards.
    Want to read more about the Ogasaka Facet, check out the link below, a collab review by Ian "OceanMan" Tarbox (Chamonix), Colin (Splitboard.com) and myself.
    If you're local, and want to try these, reach out. The cost.. you have to post about it on soc media and this site.

    You will need to supply your own hardware (binding system/skins).

    DM @PowderPanda and we'll get you on a teat of an Ogasaka!

    Quick note: The 152cm & 159Cm will be off to Backcountry Magazine Splitboard test. But will be available after as well as for next season.

    DM me if interested either here or IG (faster access to me there).

    Cheers,

  5. I am in the market for just such a thing. The 164cm is my size. I would like to order one if you get a kickback out of it. I can get some drone shots on it as well as some dslr pics. Let me know thanks.

    Hey @Rodney Clark, no kickback for me. I ride and support what I like. (Full disclosure, they do supply me with boards, but I will only ride what I believe in. I have declined other offers after riding and breaking boards).
    That said, where are you located? I have a 164cm right here if you want to try it?

    I forgot to add to this post, but Backcountry Magazine tested and highlighted these boards (literally, the boards I have here) in the 2022 Gear Guide.

    If you want to just reach out to Koheii directly, just say you were referred by me. I'm hoping he gives people a discount.

  7. I am located in Diamond heights Oldtown Id. I will reach out and check with them for sure. I would love to give that thing a Rip in the meantime. If you want to meet up we can go for a test ride or something.
