  1. At 56 I realize you cant let fitness slide at all. I hope to stay on point though out this summer and not do the usual get after it in October routine that I used to do.
  2. TSUNAMIBAY, by dropping the other hand you pull your shoulder on that side down and you open up the inside shoulder getting your stack or body alignment better over the edge. Open the arm pit on the inside of the turn instead of closing it and dropping that hand and you will lock in so many more turns. If you look at the motion even when your on the carpet you can see why it works. I only got out 2 days this year due to warm travel destinations but they were both 30+ degree and sunny days with some great old time alpine friends. The stoke was on high and I walked away knowing 2 things, at 55I can still chuck turns with the best of them and I am totally at home on the Coiler AM on any terrain.
  3. Thanks Eric, I plan to eval the shell as well. Im interested to see if that empty pocket is the area of issue. As I said I have not really tried to diagnose the issue, I just ride and deal with the discomfort the day after. At least Im starting to build the equation to solve for X lol.
  4. Great vid find David. It said theres nothing in the front ankle pocket. Im thinking thats exactly where my problem is. I believe I have a tube of the magic cork, but Im leaving the snow for the next week. When I get back I will remove the liners and with them on I will locate the hot spot and see if its that empty area. I hope thats the area and a partial tube will put it to rest.
  5. Lack of skilled Alpine snowboard boot fitter around us is a HUGE problem and has helped to reduce my net worth over the past 20 years lol
  6. David as mentioned earlier I switched from years of Raichle/DeeLuxe shell to the UPZ, A move I was very happy about. Have you considered a different shell I did a foam injection and it was Way too unforgiving, Cold and.. It killed my calves. One of the huge bonuses of Zipfit is the ability to reshape them as many times as you like, foam is one and done $500 out the door.
  7. For me the best part is never having to buckle that all important instep buckle tight at all, just enough to keep it closed maybe a little tighter. No more crushing my foot to the point of it going numb just to keep it down.
  8. Not sure of the model, world cup or Gara. Im going to do some thumbing to see if I can take care of it. Im not sure bumping the shell is the answer at this point until I do some good investigation. Im terrible cause I put them in my bag and forget about them, never researching the issue then I go and hammer on them for the day
  9. What shells are you guys having success with.?? I have hot spots on the medial side of my ankles to get figured out but I deal with it cause the performance is so on point.
  10. As I mentioned in a previous post I struggled for the better part of 20 years in hard boots trying to get a liner that didnt have me crushing my feet after lunch or later in the season. The ZipFits are the best thing I have found available. I can Honestly say I can leave the lodge with my boots buckled on the first clicks, get to the top, snug them once and literally forget about buckles till Im done. Best part is if I do need to tighten its never the instep buckle, most of the time its the top buckle on my right leg. Funny thing is I will find it un done for I dont know how many runs before I even notice. Real talk I actually dreaded thinking about how much my feet were gonna hurt or that feeling after lunch of my feet moving all around and not being able to focus on turns. Thats in the past now with the set it and forget it liners called ZipFit. I dont follow their deal of removing them from the shells and sliding them in the boot with your foot. I leave mine in and with the swing away tongue mod on UPZ Im able to enter them easily. No their not cheap but they are well worth it.
  11. Mike, I'm quite humbled by your comments but it's the opposite of what we discussed. We joked about people constantly changing equipment to solve technique errors but I have to say in this instance it's the boards Not me.
  12. I was disappointed we didnt get to spend more time with you. I was hoping to have a good 3 runs with you but I had to skoot. I agree with what Mike said, I saw your lower half still in a bit of a toe side orientation when you went to go heel. Its actually blocking you from getting into proper position to nail heelsides. Since that was my 2nd day out this year I really had to focus on getting my head around in my heelsides. I couple times I found my self looking up at the sky when I had a bad heelside instead of looking across the trail. Unfortunately Im headed back south for next weekend and wont be back till the 23rd, that leaves a possible day on the 24th if theres anything left worth trying to carve on by then.
  13. Hemlock, my new favorite place. Thanks for another awesome day Mike. Next time it's top to bottom runs on hemlock.
