  1. Nice camera work Trent!
  2. Have not seen "Mental" Dave Brown at Welch for years. Loudest mouth this side of the Mississippi! Pete
  3. If you want to ultimately end up alpine boarding you need to aquire the alpine boarding equipment first. I ride at Welch and could give you some pointers/lessons if you wish. Skip the step in bindings, extremely stiff and unforgiving. (hoping my virgin SW SI are not this way) Pete
  4. PROBLEM SOLVED! My buddy today noticed that my rear cant plate was oriented incorrectly. I was leaning tail to tip instead of heel side to toe side in alignment with my riding angle. I'd been riding without the leverage of my rear leg on my heelsides. I guess I'd been trying to crank the heels with mostly my front leg with minimal input from the rear leg. J Changed the canting angle on rear binding and everything changed! These T3 step-ins RoCk! "I am experiencing the same thing with new t 3 ste in's in what were very comfortable boots in my burton bindings. My leg is too sore to try it out bu could my old, comfortable wide stance be the culprit. I wonder if bringing the stance together could solve this issue?"
  5. I am experiencing the same thing with new t 3 step in's in what were very comfortable boots in my burton bindings. My leg is too sore to try it out but, could my old, comfortable wide stance be the culprit. I wonder if bringing the stance together could solve this issue?
  6. Thanks for the useful info. Just curious.
  7. Can anybody share their experiences with this board?
  8. Glad I ran into you Trent, that was a good time!
  9. Hoping to slice up Welch Monday. Looking for some sunshine as well. Eta...11:00.
  10. Well, now we know what's inside there.
  11. Punched this out of my boot out of curiosity. Looks to me like this would not have spun in place and is certainly a viable t-nut for Fintec heels. Unfortunately, I'll need to find a SS t-nut with teeth to replace as this ones is not going to sit firmly in place any longer without spinning once I start torquing the screw in. Looking for some opinions please on the remainder of the existing t-nuts. Thanks.
  12. Kind of like stepping up from a microwave to an oven. But...you don't cook tenderloin in a microwave. I'm very particular as are most about gear. What's to expect? My boots are really comfortable so they get the upper hand. I rode soft last year ... help me... On a side note. Going to enjoy this sailboarding shortly.
  13. Due to a defective heel on my Stratos Pros it is no longer safe to use my Burton race plates. I feel by going T3 step-in, with Fin Tech heels the heel binding connection will be robust regardless of the defect. My question is...which firmness should I order regarding the E rings? I would normally ride my race plates extremely tight to the boot and enjoyed a comfortable amount of lateral flex. I'm making an assumption that it's the E rings that contribute to this. ? Any help greatly appreciated. Pete
