We have secured a new supply of Titanal which will carry us through for many more seasons so no more worries about the material shortage. Now its back to business as usual, well sort of. Because of the 8 month delay in finding out whether or not we could get more Titanal, this has somewhat thrown our production schedule off. We are doing our best to handle it and now can look forward to building and also carrying on with the development of the .3mm Titanal boards. During the last few months, we also purchased some .4mm Titanal and will begin development with that. The feel is that it will work well for heavier aggressive riders and we will start testing with this in mind. Pricing for the 2017 season is up a bit ( now $880 cdn) due to the low cdn dollar causing extra material costs on our end but we still are trying to keep it as reasonable as possible. Of course with the high USD, it makes the purchases for our Southern neighbors a bargain! So while the 2017 season did bring its challenges, we now have a renewed outlook in knowing that we can carry on providing our boards that have had many seasons of refinement while looking forward to new and exciting design possibilities.
