  1. Interesting plan! You (population level of 'you') want this to end faster? Get vaccinated and ask your friends to.
  2. Well, our infected numbers are spiking again. We went full Code Red Critical: stores limited to 10% capacity, or 100, whichever is less. City schools switched back to remote learning. Etc. I hope more people get vaccinated and we can slow the spread.
  3. The recipient pays taxes and import duty on the declared value no matter what. Make sure they know that. I always ask for and gladly pay for insurance. UPS and FedEx are the worst, with surprisingly large brokerage fees payable upon receipt. Seems random and non-negotiable. They know you want your stuff and abuse that. USPS (converts to Canada Post on our side) has low brokerage fees. Was $5 a couple years ago but i don't know if that changed.
  4. LOL! I should have figured that out from the thread.
  5. You're never going to win with that attitude, Mister! Can't wait to see my carving friends in 2022!
  6. You need on on-board view to appreciate that form of racing: Don't blink!
  7. It works well. Clean, apply, trim any corners with a radius so it doesn't start peeling as easy. If any spots start peeling, use clear nail polish to seal that edge down before it gets worse. It will deform under the bindings. Mines been fine for probably over 100 days of use. @BlueB - I'm going to try an X in aluminum duct tape to add torsional rigidity! Lessons learned from the sidecut thread!
  8. Maybe a silly question, but in your 'bombing' runs, are you making S-shaped turns that leave 1-2 cm wide tracks? i.e. what we define as carving. Not skidding. Not meant as an insult in any way. The average snowboarder and skier that talks about bombing down runs makes fast skidded turns, so sidecut radius matters less than you'd think for them. Toe & heel overhang don't matter as much either. This was 100% me a while ago. Fast skidded turns; thought I was awesome because I went faster than most.
  9. I got my first AZ shot yesterday too. Feeling a little tired today, but not bad. No schedule for the 2nd shot yet. Just "later".
  10. If the same materials are used tip to tail, then board thickness is a very good proxy for relative stiffness. Look up "bending moment of inertia" if you want to get all mathy. The fun starts with varying materials, and of course the carbon & fiberglass laid on top/bottom of the outer titanal layers don't have to be uniform. Plus board width changes as you go along the length. Shifting the thicker part of the core fore-aft changes our perception of the board being stiffer in the nose vs. the tail. Pull out some calipers and plot your board thicknesses along their length for some end o
  11. A friend had an MR2 with a big Camry swap - it was flipping awesome! Still kept the fun-to-drive nature of the MR2 but added tire shredding fun. That's awesome!
  12. I still have this! But wait, I'm recalling that someone contacted me about it and I didn't get back to them. Sorry to whoever that was! I'll see if I can figure it out, as they have first dibs if they haven't lost interest. Board in in central Canada. Snappy little thing, was fun on good snow.
  13. Base structure and smoothness gives you more speed. And grinding reduces board life. Which is more important to you? Everyone sets their own point on that sliding scale. I think I'm out of the norm here, but I just turn less if I want to go faster. My board speed doesn't determine my enjoyment, unless it starts getting pretty bad.
  14. Two days on the snow for me. Regulations kept the ski areas running at partial capacity, so tickets were sold out weeks in advance. I took vacation to be able to ride the days I did. They were fun days with decent snow on the three runs that were open, and traffic was light. Looking forward to the 2022 season!
