  1. Nothing special on it, it is fun. It somehow personalized you board. On the other hand it can also make your board difficult to sell. No everybody has the same taste. Angry was only board I did not sell and I did not even bother with fully custom built Virus. Maybe I was hoping I will ride it again, but not sure. Too “big” board for my current condition.
  2. 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
  3. I have ridden various length boards during last 30+ years but my favorite always were boards under 165cm. Probably the best of all was old silver Virus Rocket. One board I should not sell. I replace it with Zylon Hurricane but that Rocket was something special. I bought on the trip to Germany at Chemnitz on sale. Sweet memories.
  4. Almost same question somebody ask last week. I was riding Dynafit and Scarpa AT boots for years. They were much better for me than any UPZ model. And I don’t even talk about weight. So light compare those UPZ leg stones. And of course much better and safer for climbing if you do it.
  5. I used them to years Dynafit ZZero and Scarpa Maestrale. You can ride them lock or unlock. Dynafit were one of the best boots I ever had. So light. They got destroyed and new I got a couple months before injury were pretty much the same shape but not light. It is much easy and safer to climb in these boots. Sad it is history for me. Scarpas were 10 mm longer for the same size than Dynafits. You cannot go wrong with them, of course no step in binding.
  6. I do if the boots have this option. It compensates for “X”or “O” legs. There was boot fitter at San Francisco about 25 years back and he actually measured you legs. Since those days I know, I have about 3 degree bow on my left leg. It helped in old style of liner to release pressure away from ankle. In new thermoliners it is different story. You can also compensate by footbed to certain degree. To set up my boots as comfortable as possible was probably my number one priority. Sometimes I even rode two different boots. It brought usually a lot of questions on the chairlifts. My answer was I am
  7. What size you are looking for?
  8. Just normal regular vision. How my priorities changed during one year.
  9. I wanted to try boarding, so I bought at Copeland sport on same ridiculous sale alpine Hooger Booger board with soft boot bindings. Of course I did not have an idea what is alpine board. It was just a cheap board. One afternoon I tried it with Nordica Grand Prix.Of course disaster and I broke that bindings. I got replacement and I needed boots so I went to rental shop. They did not have soft boots to rent but offered me brand new plastic purple lace Kastingers still in the box. So I took them and went for a lesson at Soda Springs resort.On the return they offer to sell boots for a good price
  10. 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. I just need neck brace. I
  11. I was riding at unlocked AT boots (Dynafit, Scarpa) for years. Sometimes only back foot sometimes both. It depended on condition. On 0 degree boots which are original Raichle with sole for ski binding I had Drupi spring system with soft springs. I just liked a some flex in boots. By the way I am Ladia but I am not able to lock to page as well as return any e mails. I still have Coiler for sale. So if you wrote me use my personal e mail Ladiat @gmail.com. Have a nice season everybody. I don’t expect be on slope this winter and who knows if ever.
  12. E or EE. This is first I learned something like that and I don’t know and I did not find any information about it. Maybe you can just try them I am in Hayward, maybe we can meet.
  13. Brand new never use, thermoliners never heated. All boots are 26.5. I bought them like my preparation for retirement. Last several years I rode in these 3 models. White are 0 degree boots, those are Deeluxe boots with ski sole. I do not expect too much interest but I put them here before I do e bay. Each pair $250 shipped. I still have Kessler 162 , Coiler Angry And probably Split Voile. Guys shipping for boards are between $50 -70. It was too expensive for some, I understand but it is what is it.
