  1. Well that was interesting. Full story and explanation to come soon. But I have spent a huge portion of time to get this forum back up and running and damage to our community to a minimum. Hold tight, I'll be back.....

  2. My passion for the edge has followed me almost my whole life and it took me to a lot of places and helped me meet a lot of good people (in real life and online). I am grateful for the journey so far and I hope it will continue in the same fashion for years to come. Here is my latest clip. I hope you enjoy it! I always appreciate a good feedback. I haven‘t been very active here lately, but I am always ready to exchange some ideas or give some advice. Just contact me via Facebook or Instagram. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WevV_8EvYso&t=14s

  3. Probably for me to be accurate. 14 months after my injury and a half year after cancer surgery I hit slopes at Soda Spring resort where I took my first snowboard lesson decades ago. I started on the absolutely easiest beginners slope and slowly worked up to the “steepest” slope on the picture. Of course my legs were like noodles and people around scared me. It will not be like before I will just carefully slide the hills but just to be outside on the snow was like small miracle. Ladia my old log in just dos not work

  4. We had some early season snow that got us off to a fairly early start to the season around here. This was the first day back on the hill for Bruce since his knee replacement. Seemed like a success.... Except for hikes back to the car to switch up boards, he rode for over 5 straight hours without a break! : )

  5. All, Please welcome David Redman, @dredman, who has joined our Moderator staff! David is a 12 year veteran of the forum and as you may know recently organized the very successful Montucky Clear Cut carve session at Turner Mtn, Montana. This event brought carvers from all over to enjoy a private carvers-only mountain, and raised over $21,000 for the Kootenai Wintersports Ski Education Foundation. Here he is inspecting the groom. Thank you David!! David is replacing @Mellow Yellow, who graciously stepped up and volunteered to help during the transition from BomberOnline last y

  6. This is pretty much my only trick. The crowds love it and not many people can do it, but it's not that hard to learn and it's not dangerous. These are my best tips, give it a try. As long as you end up on your feet it looks cool. What the heck else are you gonna do with all that kinetic energy at the end of your run? Don't waste it on a skid stop, you came out to make turns right? There are at least a few variations to the carved 360, I classify them according the shape of the track they make (the perfect circle, the spiral, the teardrop...). More on those below, what's described he

  7. Today we confirmed that a Warren Miller film crew will be at this years Montucky Clear CUT. They will be filming Tuesday - Thursday. I was concerned about how they have portrayed some of the fringe segments of winter sports in the 80’s and early 90’s. I was assured that they were on board with promoting our support work for Turner Mountain, the community of Libby and our sport of carving. We are really excited for this opportunity to showcase alpine carving on national media.

  8. Hi guys! I haven´t been here for some time, but I always enjoyed the great bomber community! Here is my latest video. I hope you like it! In almost the whole video I am on an Oxess Sl 162 Custom with an Allflex H plate hexagonal cut flex M. Only one scene is on an Oxess GS 185 with an Allflex plate normal longitudinal cut flex M. https://vimeo.com/260086557

  10. For only the second time this season I managed to spend the first 2 hours this morning in almost perfect conditions. This was the best carving experience that I can remember and I can say with conviction that I am now a better carver than I ever was in the past. My evolution from 90s Swiss based carving techniques to the current angulation approach has been enabled in part by the interest @Eric Brammer aka PSR has taken in me and the rest to the people and content on BOL. Which brings me to the appreciation part. I was more than surprised at the warm and informed response that I receiv

  13. Jumped a chair this morning with a very chatty skiier who seemed intent on learning my whole life history in one lift run - toward the end I finally managed to return fire and discovered he was a physician - a psychiatrist to be precise. "Why do you think I ask so many questions? Don't worry, you passed the exam!" I swung the NFC out from under the chair in prep for unload and he looks at board, then the boots, and then back at me, shakes his head and says "Maybe I spoke too soon - you better take my card...

  14. Hello Folks, Directly to the point I have purchased the Bomber inventory other than the Deeluxe boots Sean has. This has been in the works for a little while and today it finalized. I'll be starting a thread tomorrow with information on status, plans, etc. I will attempt to keep current and respond to these threads but there is a mountain of inventory to sort through and lots of wheels to set in motion so I may be slow to respond for the near term. The important take away is the inventory has been acquired and I will be making Trench Diggers, Fintec, BTS, etc going forward.

  19. Friends, With the 2019 winter season winding down or over in the northern hemisphere, I'd like to share this update with you. Since we rolled out subscriptions about a year ago, so far we have donated $950 EACH to USASA and USSRT. Please give yourselves a pat on the back for helping support our fringe sport, at least here in the USA. Every little bit helps! If you are not yet a subscriber and would like to join the cause, please click the Subscriptions tab at the top of the forum. I would also like to thank everyone for making the transition from the old forums at BOL. This

  21. Well, today it is exactly one year since my accident and 4 months since cancer surgery. Knock on the wood. My eye situation is still the same. 3&4 cranium nerves are permanently damaged. So only hope for some kind of improvement is eye surgery. Appointment with surgeon next week. Upper right side of the body is still very painful I am not even sure if it is still from that shoulder. But I still not give up. I bought new body armor, new FIS approved helmet it is heavy and no any vents and also orange Visually Impaired bib. Yes like this stop some 70 years idiot.

  23. We had agreed no filming today because we were there for one reason: to F S#!T UP. However Mario was waiting on some meat gates to disperse so I whipped out the camera at the end of the run hoping to catch a solid toeside. Mario was on his super stiff JJA 175 Cyrpress and feeling pretty froggy. For those that don’t know Mario, when he sees a camera you are going to get a show one way or another. He goes into full windup going for a homerun. At the exact apex of the turn, Big Mario’s big force blasted right through his rear boot cuff pivot rivet causing his back leg to collapse unloading

  24. Found this guy sitting on a park bench who said he Golf's, rides motorcycles and dabbles in building snowboards Something named Kohlerer. He's from Canadia and was lost. I said he was in Cleveland along way from home.. His name was Bruce but he said he did not want to go back because he did not want to have to make boards since the weather was so nice.. So we just rode!!

  27. CURRENT UPDATE Hello Everyone, I had not intended to delay posting the store opening here, however, once I turned the store on and had a few sales from those on the notification list I had to fix some issues on the backend of the store. Most are fixed, there is still a problem with a few customers not having a shipping option show up, you can always choose pickup and the order will proceed. Its that time of year, time to get ready for the coming season!! The Bomber Store is open! First the caveat, I have stock of Td3's however I am waiting for the binding stickers to a

  28. My teenage son was in an hour-long ski lesson this weekend. Turns out I'd passed he and his small group on one of the trails. (it was my one hour to sort of cut loose, so I was solely focused on open trail... :-) I was standing in line when he breezed through to the front w/ his instructor. He says, "Hi Dad!" to rub in that he's skipping the line. The instructor says, "That was your Dad on the snowboard??". Son says, "Yeah". Instructor says, "Too funny - we were on the hill talking about getting the ski up on edge to carve turns, and you flew past, and I literally said to them, "Do it like tha

  29. Props to Ryan Knapton & to Russ Britt for this video out of ATC 2017. Russ was the guy with the soda-pop Donek and the crazy, narrow stance. Russ tells why it's that way, and shows what he can do. (Subsequent post in this thread from Russ explains what the top sheet really is! Russ is full of surprises!) When I found this, having heard from Russ that Ryan had shot it, it already had nearly 6,000 views on YouTube. (1st March 2017 - 11,000+ views)

I have had a few messenger chats with a few riders that are currently using zipfit liners in their hard shell boots with great success but knowing that this community is a demanding underserved market we have thought of opening up a feedback line with users like you to develop something specific for your sport. Please share your ideas. We are listening, and motivated to launch something reflecting your input for next season. Check out zipfit.eu if you have not done so yet to see that zipfits are all about. Looking forward to hearing your comments and becoming the reference suppl

  34. Just some easy turns on some greens at Vail. The two softbooters are young bucks from Miami up for their first season on the hill. I saw their shiny new Doneks and we took some turns. They are pretty solid for just starting out! Ryan Knapton has quite the pull on the younger crowd for sure.

  37. Hi All, I’m going to turn the checkout off in the Bomber webstore for a few weeks starting April 15 going through the beginning of June. I will be off to Austria for a few weeks coaching skis camps and then visiting family in Maine before I make my way back to Colorado. I should have pretty solid email access for that time so I will be able to answer emails and questions. I will however be completely unable to ship anything until I’m back in Colorado. I’m hoping this won’t be an inconvenience for anyone at this time of year. If it is I will be shipping orders until I leave on April 15th

  38. compilation of clips from 1st tracks with the 185 8rw at Spirit in 2019...before the lift starts running, holding a 5' pole with a gopro stuck on the end...not the best way to do a warm-up run, but it captures the mood of having acres of fresh corduroy to yourself.

  40. Let's hear your story. Short answer: because I can't fly an F-16. Long answer: I've always loved the sensation of carving. I started snowboarding when I was 13, but before that my ski buddies and I would drag race each other down narrow, winding green trails in a then-unpopular area of Sugarloaf only serviced by a T-bar at the time. We would tuck and only turn where the trail turned and go as fast as possible. Back then this was the best way to ride what little sidecut we had and purely carve. Those are some of my best memories of skiing. My first in-person glimpse of people

  41. Every story makes me more sad. The Callens were friends to me, as with so many others in the tight alpine community. They even put me up for a couple of nights in Colorado when I was stuck after ATC, and we had a fantastic powder day filled with laughs and firsts for me. They brought a new level of energy and excitement that was healthy for the sport. I knew they had their business struggles, but I had no idea of the depth of what was going on in the background. The spending did seem extravagant, but I just assumed that Bomber was being bankrolled by Angie's day job in the early pha

  42. I saw a friend and fellow USASA racer today and we were chatting about snowboarding as usual. He mentioned he heard that Kessler had gone out of business. I couldn't believe this, but thinking back to the thread discussing difficulty getting in touch with them, I wanted to find out first hand. I emailed Hansjuerg and got this response right back. Sharing with his permission: --- Hi Jack Thanks for your lines below and your work you are doing for alpine snowboarding. First of all i can assure you that there is no need to worry about the future of Kessler. As you maybe know

  45. We have had enough unpleasant ice carving days this year at Spirit Mt, that I decided to ask Bruce if he would make me an ice specific board to see if I can find some carving joy on all ice. Something super damp with extra rubber, a softer flex and, of course, metal. A small-ish scr to keep my speed down, because I don't like going fast on ice, but enough length to smooth out some of the roughness. The ice board cometh yesterday. A super damp, mellow yellow 166 Contra, 20w, 10.5scr. Thanks to @RCrobar and @Technick for letting me use the logo. Rode it today in 2-4" of groo
