  1. To anyone who posts a query about this board. I do not regularly visit the site due to still being in the process of recovering from an accident that has left me unable to snowboard for the past 15 months and counting. It's rather depressing. Once I see a request I send a DM as well as post in the sale thread. I may not see it for a while. I will check in once a day for a bit after initially responding. It's not an overly expensive board. I just don't know offhand what the cost of shipping will be hence I haven't said anything concrete about the price as of yet. It will take ti
  2. Colton, check your messages and shoot me an e-mail.
  3. Hi David. Sorry for the slow response. The board is still available. I am sending a PM.
  4. Hey Mike, Yes, it is still hanging out in my shed. I have to do some hunting to see if i have extra wheels. DM me an address and what it's worth to you when you have a chance. Super fun deck. Chris
  5. Big congratulations go out to Canada's very own Kaylie Buck for her recent performance at the junior worlds. PSL - 3rd PGS - 8th Great job!
  6. What happens if we return to the original questions and discuss those. Speed relative to scr. The contribution of variable radii along a single edge to the performance of that edge throughout a turn. Performance pertaining to how well it bites into the snow, how much energy is lost by that edge by bending the board and moving snow and what is regained upon unweighting the edge and hopefully releasing it leading into setting the next edge. Great visual graph showing the relationship of 2 variables. Please discuss beyond that. It isn't a question of racers vs. Freecarvers. It is a
  7. What's wrong with adults having fun too? Hold on, wait, i think i know what sentence comes next.... Dude, shut up and ride Depends on how you are using the term scoot.
  8. Star Wars riglet park. Yeah, kids are having fun playing in snow. How horrible. Why would we ever consider allowing kids to have fun playing on a toy?
  9. Amy Purdy in the face of adversary. Tremendous. Short and honest.
  10. 3/1 or 2/1 on alpine decks (though on my SG's I don't actually know) and whatever the heck on other decks. Priority is keeping them clean. I love my ceramic and diamond stones. Ice coaster here. Ride all conditions. Round edges suck.
  11. Any interest in a t-board? They are fun to ride. Great for "carving" down hills. The more adventurous you are the more versatile it becomes. It is mature. I may be able to find extra wheels. I have children and have found myself primarily chasing them on a long board in a relatively flat area. So it's time it found a new home. Make an offer.
  12. It's a blog. English is not the primary language. Seeing as how she earned her level 1 CASI in Japan in 2018 I suspect that she demoed readily available boards. I agree with the statement that the title was an overreach. Frankly, the purpose is to make snowboarding more accessible to more people. Let her share the stoke. That's the intention of the author. Think of how cool it is that she is actively searching for more knowledge. Every day that we get to ride is a gift. Some years we are blessed beyond our wildest imaginations and others our wants are far from met. Enjoy wh
  13. There is something to be said about using a binding that works well with a specific board. Companies invest a lot of time into creating their gear pairings and often it has a very positive outcome. Not an answer for everyone. No single thing will meet everyone's needs. I enjoy flexy soft boots with malavita's (burton boots fit my feet well and hands down fit very well in burton bindings) on many decks. I thought that I might miss some response due to the slightly softer baseplate coming from a cartel. I don't. Works beautifully on a endeavor korean hammerhead. I tried the cartel and
  14. Don't make light of mouth guards. Concussions can and do happen through the jaw. Even if a concussion does not occur, broken molars are painful. Nothing beats getting a concussion because you landed hard on your rear end.
