TESTER NAME: GARY HANSEN
OCCUPATION: MTNWARRIOR, FORMERLY AT SNOWBOARD MAG.
BOARD: UNITY WHALE 156 LIGHT CAMBER
OVERALL: MAGIC UNREAL LIKE NO OTHER!
SHAPE: completely boggling, doesnt look like it would do what it does but it does it better!
FLEX: Perfect, buttery turn entry, flawless energy load and return to the back edge, explosive, manly and completely like the board ate mushrooms and takes control and makes you a super Powder hero. I mean it did for me!
GRAPHICS: SUrfs Up! Shralpers of the white wave. Respect Buttons every turn and layback snap.
STABILITY: Classic Unity build and quality finish and tune. Snappy high end wood you can feel at speeds. Great return of energy. stable and nimble simultaneously. Point or blast your choice. the board does exactly what you want almost instantaneously and intuitively.
POP/PLAYFULNESS: Unreal ride quality, powder chomper, squirty acceleration out of powder stashes and pillows. early rise eats and displaces powder snow effortlessy and places it directly into your face and over your head in larger almost dangerous plumes. Camber behind the front foot back provides the meat and edge control you come to rely on with a Unity. Great glass, poppy playful, lively, ALIVE. This board is the one!
FLOAT IN POW:This board actually flies. It lifts the rider to weightlessness in very small amounts of pow and compresses the flowing snow under the tapered bat tail, which then propels you like a baked powdermissile in a world of chaos. I achieved greatness only while strapped to this supreme piece of hydrodynamic engineering. Frozen water crystals appear, in fact happier when I ride by!
THE LAST WORD: Everyone in the world should own one or they won’t even begin to comprehend the joy of riding powder snow on the Unity Whale. Mission accomplished this is the board I want to ride forever. Period!
