  8. Would anyone be interested in joining a camp and improve softboot carving this winter with Kazunori Hirama, Shimhoon (leader of FunxR in Korea), and Ryan Knapton this winter? I'm trying to make this happen for Rama and Shimhoon (youtube Shimhoon Film) to fly to Colorado and have some fun with Ryan Knapton. Shimhoon is an apprentice of Rama from a decade ago, and currently manages Rama's team Infinity. Shimhoon is widely considered the No.1 softboot carving god in Korea. At this time all three parties have already agreed to meet and are making schedules for this winter.

  9. Got mine, installed on a Loaded Vanguard, and went for a ride. Here's after about 3 min of playing around: First impressions: 1. Woah, it feels crazy tipsy when pushing. Like the pivot axis is 8" below your foot. It's not, but it took some mental recalibration. 2. OMG it turns tight. I could make a 180 degree turn in just wider than a standard parking spot width. That's toeside, I don't have the confidence to do that heelside. 3. Steering with one foot (while pushing) requires a delicate touch, can pretty easily steer the truck so far that it rolls under your ankle. 4. Easy to pump some speed with rotational movements. So far, I LOVE it! Super fun and playful, can't wait to get some more miles on it. I like lower speed stuff, and this lets you really play at low speeds. It's crazy looking down and seeing the front axle at 45 degrees to straight ahead!

  10. Hey guys! Definitely been a while. I meant to update yall a tad (a couple months) sooner but life happens and I took a job at my old camp! Tech Free Days have been absolutely glorious, and the leg has been healing up magnificently. The season prior still on my mind, the season upcoming soon to take its place. I’m quite excited to ride again, and although it may be hard to ride with yall unless i’m back, i am beyond grateful for everything yall have done for me. I can’t wait to see yall around!

  15. More details will be provided as our team plans for Rama and Shimhoon's trip. To gain some traction of the camp (especially the reliability of this camp) at this time, please refer to Shimhoon Film's latest two youtube posts, and Shimhoonfilm Instagram. Shimhoon shot the July 4th independence day firework from my home at Jersey City, and recently visited Bigsnow and taught three of us softboot carving enthusiasts at Bigsnow American Dream for two weeks. I would like to thank Alpinesnowboarder and Jack M for supporting our idea to host a camp in Colorado this winter PS: Rama likes to put Shimhoon's sticker on top

  24. Glad to hear you're doing OK, Scottish Surfer. That sounds more than a little scary, and even scarier that you don't know where you got it. Apparently the Delta variant is ridiculously contagious though, as if the original strain wasn't bad enough. Well, Alberta has officially become the first place in the world where you don't have to isolate if you test positive. I'm waiting for the next lockdown two weeks after the kids go back to school in September, and the temperatures start to cool off. Given my reaction to the second vaccine - a headache like someone had jammed an ice pick between my eyes, nausea, and two weeks of fatigue and breathing difficulties - I don't really want to catch the real deal.

  25. Hmm. Given the amount of heli hours you log, I suspect your definition of “poor snowboarder” and mine differ by quite a bit.

  26. It wasn't unexpected, this last couple of years. He was still pretty much around until then, although he hasn't been running the place for quite a while now. You can still go if you can get into Canada. He was a crazy Austrian guy, but he wasn't bothered about where you came from or what you rode: his business always treated poor snowboarders like me just the same as they treated the richest old school skiers. That's why he got most of my heli money. In fact he's still got some of it and I'll be there, Covid permitting, to collect on some of it in December. I'm sorry he's gone, but he had about as good a run as any of us can expect.

  27. That's the prime event each season! Our plan is to make this happen either in December (early or mid) or in March, when none of Rama, Shimhoon or Ryan would have a scheduling conflict.

  28. Many do globally. Countries bid and compete to even hold the events. There are NorAMs There is the Race to the Cup There is FIS For many, like myself, it is a significant line item in our budgets to support these athletes who's only goal is to be the fastest in the world at their sport. Surly, this must have been hyperbole.....

  29. Why compete in anything? Why not just step outside your door and time yourself running 26 miles instead of paying to enter a marathon? I guess I don't understand why someone who doesn't care about racing would post in this thread or even read it. Some people just want to compete. If it moves, it will be raced.

  30. Sent money to purchase the kit but never received it. Change of plans. Purchased a "like new" foil from a surf shop in Fla. Going to mount it on and old windsurfer and practice behind the pontoon boat before committing to a shorter board and wing. If the foil doesn't hit me in the head as I ramp up the learning curve I'll be carving on a foil before summers end!

  33. I’ma have a talk with Mix Master Marky Thirsty. I told him I was to have exclusive rights to The Dirty Jerz. Maybe I’ll let this one slide so choose wisely. The XC may be the greatest board ever, but here in the NE the SF may wear the crown, definitely when pickings are slim. When Mark stops making bass guitars and you finally take delivery, we may have to ride The Fridge in East Rutherford for some pre-season to see if you’re worthy to carry this winter.

  35. This Mono freak will be there, for sure. Be sure to go see the Warren Miller film and see you fruitbooters in all your glory ! I'm hoping the editors are nice to my fellow Mono rider and me. I'm so fortunate to have hooked up with the Hardboot community and to be so welcomed. Maybe I'll break out the Skwal this time around...

  36. I have long maintained but usasa should restrict hard boots through some certain age groups. It would allow the kids with natural talent to shine through the kids with richer parents, and probably end up attracting a broader range of children interested in trying it (racing in gates). Parents with talented kids would get an early heads up, since all age groups are represented in one race they get a look at the hard boots gear, and so happy opportunity to attempt at least to plan ahead. I only shake my head when I see kids below the age of 16 on custom fully plated boards and $1,000 boots. These parents want the best for their children, but they perhaps are ignorant to what they're contributing to; more at fault are the governing bodies who keep such a loose rule set as to allow such a thing. Always will be a rich kid sport.... But good God.

  42. Having the board/foil skills mastered behind a boat will make wing foiling progression much faster.

  43. For me it would be the Sea/Tac area - great riding within an hour and great windsurfing pretty much year round, and the city is really cool culturally. Near Columbia River Gorge would be a second choice.

  44. I’ll be honest here. Montana kicked my butt. I showed up at about 65% after straining my back in January trying to shrink up a turn on a big radius Alloy that I had not yet figured out. That Mountain is no Joke. We had adverse conditions that did not affect some but I just could not hang on to a committed turn after day 1. I could make a million excuses… I spent most of my time doing cross unders on the long cat tracks after the first day. I don’t think we will make the trek for 2022. Aspen is way cheaper and the conditions are hard to pass up. I knew my wife and I should have gone in 2020… CMCurt and I go back and forth about east vs west all the time… a friendly rivalry for sure. We will be back to Montana/MCC for sure but probably not until 2023… Hope to see you all weekend n CO next season. We will ride mostly Winter park and Copper with some select days at Loveland with the best crew around, Sunday Funday’s with the LCI are always cherished

  46. I didn't think to take photos until after my alterations. In the picture below you see the lowest 2 lace eyelets--that was all they had, with very short laces. I sewed on the purple webbed lace loops and got longer paracord laces.

  47. I bought these from Le Feet Lab at the end of last season. They were supposed to be the GrandPrix/Free Ride model. They turned out to be LeFeetLab's own custom version without full lace up! I was unable to stuff them into my shells without being laced up. LeFeet Lab never returned my calls about exchanging them for the normal laceup version. So, this Fall I got out my sailor's palm and awl and some whipping thread, and sewed some webbed loops for laces and installed longer laces with slide stops. Only then was I able to ride them to find out they were stiffer than I liked. Since I'd already made them mine, I decided to go ahead with some surgery to try increasing the flex. I cut the stitching that anchors the stiff plastic cuff into the heel of the liner. I know, sacrilege. But desperate times call for desperate measures... And it worked! I did not cut stitching forward of where you see the knife. I used contact cement to glue the black textured rubber back to the green plastic cuff and then tucked the tabs back into the leather slits so everything would stay put going in & out of the shells. It increased the forward flex just enough. I'm an oddball here in that I like a softer and greater forward flex than most. For comparison, this boot/liner combo is a bit stiffer (especially laterally) than my UPZ10's with Alpine wraps and DGSS springs. The other reason I'm posting is to say that these are the most comfortable liners I've ever worn. No issues, no minor discomfort anywhere, great heel hold, roomy toes. I even had enough room in the floppy lamb's wool toes to put some hand warmers in there on a subzero day. I'm just not aware that they're there at all. And at the end of the day, there's no sigh of relief when I free my feet. I have been starting each day with the boots warmed so they mold to my feet. The fit seems to remain unchanged through the day. The moldable cork material doesn't seem to move around or pack out while riding.
