  1. I can't read mind so just my humble 2 cents. I interpreted @Jon Dahl's statement as "fear" have no place in the context of Jackson Hole. It's indeed a challenging mountain. When hanging with the JH local; be honest about your ability. Paint Brush/Toilet Bowl was fun. the older i get; the greater i was or maybe i was just much dumber back then...
  2. I agree. your mileage may vary. Snowboarding is very individual. If you are used to ride a certain way; Contra Side cut could work very well. on the few occasion i was able to get Contra in the Goldilocks zone it does make riding the steep ridicules drama free/easy. Tip the board over; stay center and it just cruise. However i am having a hard time stay in that zone consistently (just not how i ride). Once again my problem not the board. Just sharing my humble 2 cents. It's a process; we are getting better acquainted. This season my timing seems to be way off so it doe
  3. Cliff notes version for myself. The word smiths put it much better than I ever could. Jack M: However the overall feel of the sidecut was strange to me, something I'd never felt before. It kind of felt as if the board was riding on two skates, one in front of your front foot and one behind your back foot, and nothing in between. I didn't sense much feedback under or between my feet. I felt it was more reluctant to tip up on edge, and low angle cruise carving was kind of "sticky". It seemed to be happiest inside a certain range of edge angles, and sort of awkward outside of i
  4. very nice write up! KTV took a very methodical approach toward testing. Something required lots of discipline to do. You can take the result to the bank
  5. hide the purchase from SO would save LOTS of marriage/relationship
  6. my style is unmistakeable arms flailing about, falling left and falling right; then forward and backware. Crash, blame the equipment/setup/weather/condition/people, especially that acorn on the trail about 300 yard away... that damn acorn </shake fist> repeat and looking to buy new board to resolve the acorn crisis. Thank you Mr. E. I am a nose stomper(center-ish but forward a bit) and got toss by the Contra so will try center on the insert pack a bit back.
  7. lol; we will be board twin at MCC lol. What did you end up spec wise? skinny 174 AT Contra nice choice!
  8. Q on Coiler/Contra setup: I seems to recall for most coiler (maybe Nirvana era); mount the binding a bit forward. For contra do we do the same or mount it more center since seems the way to ride it is more neutral/center?
  9. so many awesome contents! I wish i was part robot lol... me as a mere mortal to sum it up: Can't go wrong with either one. John(Contra) - more free carve focus, better riding condition(West), maximize riding time (leg saver) Jack(K168) - since you are coaching CBA; perhaps the racing technique/style leak into the more daily riding? East Coast condition(where we are more used to sub optimal condition; less sensitive), quality(hard charging) over quantity(easy riding) see which spectrum you fall under and go from there. or get both and be merry
  10. seems like misunderstanding to me. I read it as: $550 shipped was for Friend Price to Big Wave Dave (with stump-pad). Getting it to MCC was probably as a favor so people can enjoy it. Road to hell is build on good intention and PM/email can sometime be difficult to covey intent. I am sure if you meet in real person; you guys would be laughing over this. Life is to0 short to hold grudges and in this small circle of ours i hate to see animosity among potential life time friend.
  11. Cry in North East, Sat President weekend That's not crowd lol. Good on you for sharing your journey. It show that you are pretty comfortable with speed. Seems to be in good shape. Look forward to see the progress.
  12. so hot right now: life is to short to be so serious. Thank you Pat for the chuckle
  13. i am heading to MCC Sat and will miss the return of Buggs Bobby: glad to hear you are feeling better getting back on the wagon. FWIW same here; wobbly leg and making NE rider look bad since 2008 lol
  14. lol; it's like blood in the water Glad to see you are thinning the herd to focus on 2. It did wonder for me. I can feel the dragon sickness/hoarding instinct kicking in lol.... LFF - regular foot. Is it built for your weight or stock? What year model was it?
  15. nice riding Brian! you have come a long way. Stoke to see you stick with it and making some awesome turn. Nicely done.
