  1. Given two boards with the same side cut depth, the longer one will make a bigger turn as this board will have a larger radius.
  2. I pushed off my and my family's Ikon passes for this year. Turns out I got in eight days before getting injured (you just paid as we went). My season ended early but I got in more days than I thought I would. The wife and kids got in 13-14 days. I'm ok with that, especially know that next years Ikon is paid for.
  3. P90X3 Trimetrics workout, yoga, biking.
  4. I get that you want to tap the community experience to build a better tool to suit your needs, but I feel all of that extra input is going to cloud the waters. You're going to end up blurring your own vision of what YOU want out of the build. The best result will come from an exhaustive and complete conversation between you and the builder. You two are the only ones that matter in all this. If you take a whole bunch of advice from others and it doesn't come out right it hard to pin point where the build went wrong. What do you change on the next one in an effort to fix the issue? Tel
  5. When Bruce built my 2 Contras last spring he said that most Contras were built with T3 unless they were over 180 in length.
  6. This is Raff's email address. vaz_art@yahoo.com Raff is a fantastic artist. She has several graphic choices within the list of stock Donek graphics. With this board, I sent her pictures of an old Rossi Throttle and had her change the relevant Rossi info to Coiler info. The general graphic design is exactly like the Throttle. Ask Bruce, Sean, Mark, etc what they want to receive as far as the image format is concerned and then relay that information to the artist.
  7. Depends on the rider and the mountain. I am 210lbs and 6ft. I really enjoyed having the MK which is 162 long, 18 wide and 9ish SCR. Before I rode the MK for the first time I was always a 175 and up kind of guy. I bought a 180 Proteus and loved it. It was my favorite board for a long time. The MK changed my mind. I now like a short board with a small turning radius, but only on the right mountain. My home mountains are Pats Peak and Crotched. They are small and usually have a lot of people on the trails. Having a small board in these conditions is far more effective and fun.
  8. Either the nose dove into a soft area, which I doubt, or it hit something raised. The light was flat so I don't know. I didn't go over the handlebars. That would have been better as it would have released some of the direct pressure on my ankle.
  9. This past Sunday was supposed to be day one of a full week of riding at Sunday River. The conditions were fantastic. Firm packed powder and excellent grooming all over. I had spent the day following my wife and kids all over the mountain on my new BXFR. Around 3:00 I was on one of my favorite pitches, Sunday Punch. It's a steep blue that was, at that moment, perfect for carving. Hard chalk all the way with no ice. 80% of the way down, near the end of a toe side, the nose caught something and the board came to an abrupt stop. All of my momentum was forced upon my front foot. I felt a po
  10. I've mixed on a Neve console before. It made everything else I'd used before seem like a toy.
  11. I have been to Steamboat for 1-2 weeks per season for 16 of the last 20 years. If you can swing it bring both soft and hardboot setups. There are so many great trails for craving, but, if it snows while you are there stick to the chutes and Christmas tree bowl. These bring you to the big meadow where you'll find freshies and way less people.
  12. It's written on the board under SCR or side cut radius.
  13. That Throttle is my favorite snowboard graphic ever. I had it tuned. Didn't like the flat bottom at all. Now it's 1* base and 2* sides. @barryjMy opinion of the Contra 162 is simple. Best hardboot board I've ridden to date. I've never had more fun and laughed harder while riding than I did today. It's turny and sticks like my MK did, but it doesn't require anywhere near as much effort. My 162 is 19.5 at the waist and has a SCR of 9. I was on my new Mountain Slope boots and it was my first day on the Contra so I went for the shallow green first. Not enough speed, was m
  14. @dhamanngood meeting you today. We should plan to meet up and ride some weekday soon.
