  1. Am I wrong or does the nose look different than the others?
  2. That looked fun... I like fun...
  3. I got to ride them on two short days at Vail. The conditions were bad both days. I used my UPZs the rest of the days. I was riding with my son (a very rapid skier) and I wanted to be less focused on my equipment and just focusing on making good turns and keeping up. Also I setup my Nirvana and F2s for the S5s and my Donek (TD3sws and Geckos setup for my UPZs) was the board for conditions (highly variable). What do I know? The toe buckle is not required for me, I removed it. They are more stiff than my UPZs. I kinda' wished I kept my BTS springs. So much easier to adjust than the stoc
  4. Ooo lawd... the FUD in this thread. Let's look at some reputable sources: https://www.racewax.com/base-structure-theory/ https://www.researchgate.net/publication/41719850_The_Ski_base_Structure_Analyser_SSA https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/52098978.pdf As a person who spends a large portion of my sliding time on wet snow, structure is very important to my enjoyment of sliding. A stone grind from a reputable shop can add performance to your board. It can also undo defects. Do I do it every season, no. Have I ever regretted it? No.
  5. Was at Keystone today... I've ridden Keystone ~10 days in my life. It's a fantastic carving hill. On this recent trip I've ridden Vail, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge. Keystone's grooming spanks them all and not by a little but by a lot. I'd still be out carving Prospector if the lifts were still running and I had the legs for it. Met some carving softbooters late in the day. Maybe a new forum member? Epic day.
  6. ~30 days at the local bump. Out here at Vail co. picking up some bonus days with my son. I'm immunized but he's not yet so the weird solitary masked season continues. I've never considered LASIK or the like as strongly as I have this season. I'm thankful for this forum. I've lost family due to the pandemic. It's been awful. I would've lost my mind this winter without boarding. Mahalo.
  7. I just looked around A Racer's Edge no tanks... I must be in the wrong kind of shop. The pictures on the walls are pure adrenaline though.
  8. A stop at the Racer's edge tomorrow then Breck. Might have snow, might. Where's my oxygen tanks...
  9. Hit Vail today. Oddly empty, then we made it over to Mountain Top express... Oh, this is where everyone is... Bikinis, speedos... It was HOT today. Whew the sun felt blazing. We bailed from the crowds... The elevation kicked out butts today. Some colder temps tomorrow, yay. I didn't pack my speedo.
  10. Arrived late, hit the BC Sunday. Carvable patches push piles everywhere else. Still fun.
  11. I've got a GONG HIPE 5'8" with foil and 6m Superpower wing. I've used the board behind a boat and with the wing. Haven't tried to pump it yet... Like this-
  12. If you're talking about @softbootsurfer. He lives nearby Buttermilk. He's there at open. He goes a lot (100+ days per season.) He knows the runs (and sidehits) like the back of his hand. I'm not cyberstalking SBS, I've just read his posts for a long time. Mahalo.
  13. I hope she exceeds expectations! If you want art from her, don't delay. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-raffaella-vaz-breath-easy-again DECEMBER 19, 2019by Crispin Lipscomb, Organizer A massive Thank You and Happy Holidays to you all! Sending gratitude for the much-needed support this year, the year of all battles. Raffaella is doing well, we seem to have reached a plateau on her healing. Raffi is still on full-time oxygen supply and must continue her 3-times daily heart meds and will be injecting daily blood thinners for the remainder of her life. We are extremely grateful f
  14. Yeah man... I just started winging last summer. Hoping to take it up a notch this summer.
