Andale! Andale! Arriba! Like the formidable Mexican wrestler El Hombre, this big dude is quicker than it looks. G3's hero the El Hombre moves nimbly with smooth, stable power. The ski’s platform is wide and stable underfoot, yet unlike many fat boards it hasn’t lost its edge. The El Hombre is flexed and shaped for round arcs in the deepest fluff and most demanding mank. For those who live in softer snow climates or just prefer the mass of a big ski, the El Hombre isn’t just a powder day choice, it could very well be the everyday choice. Turns From the looks of it you might think the El Hombre needs a rutter to turn them. Not the case. the El Hombre turns like a pro with little effort.

Bad to the Bone
I have rocked the El Hombres for a couple a seasons and I love them so much I put another set up. I have skied them at Loveland on the Ridge, at Monarch in Mirkwood and dropped in on them on a couple of 13'ers and some off of Loveland Pass. They rock! A great ski for big lines and deep powder. Get some and be ready for a joy ride.
Great all arounder
My ski of choice for all of last season, yeah they are fat but if you're rockin' a four buckle boot... why not. Torsionally they are super stiff which makes up for the width because they still lock up on hard pack. But they still have a progressive, round flex to really play well in tight trees and bumps. The float is great, and I never had a tip dive (I tried, Hammerheads in powder ought to do it). So in short, I love this ski and recomend them to anyone who wants a quiver of ski's but only has the money for one.
