  1. I thought maybe this would go in "videos" but that's "videos of people carving" and there's not a lot of carving here, but it is "all mountain" hard booting. This is a Burton Skeleton Key 154, F2 Race Titanium bindings, Atomic Backlands with Phantom Levers.
  2. Almost new! $200CAD + shipping (was about $150USD when I posted this) Rossignol Sushi 145cm (one size fits all). Very wide (28cm) and short powder board with swallow tail. I have only used it once. I've already got a powder board that I like, so this one needs to go
  3. $450 Board is in excellent shape Base 9.5/10 and Topsheet a 9/10 Only Ridden a dozen times Binding highbacks Don’t match Cracked on on second day and Burton sent me what they had that would ‘match’ Both almost identical Purchaaing a long powder board Will trade and add $$ If someone would like to trade for a Weston Japow or Soul Pitch Wing
  4. First of all, this is a review thread. Use it for test ride comments and civilized discussion. If you want to flame, use "some prototypes" thread in the carving section... Intro: This was designed to be an ultimate freeride/carver for hardboots, or softies for those who like very forward angles. The inspiration for this board came from few excellent, yet not perfect, alpine free ride boards that me and few local riders have tried and frrm versatility of modern slalom boards (OES SL included). For few years I tried to convince Alexey that he needed this type of board in his lineup and that we possibly could redesign one of the existing boards to fit the bill. However, now he decided to develop it from scratch - new molds, new geometry. I've designed the geometry (so blame it on me if it didn't work), while the core thickness and construction I left to Alexey. Specs: Length: 167 Waist: 23 SCR: 8-10 Flex: M, S and XS, for now. Construction: Kevlar composite, wood core Weight: 3.9 kg, the heaviest M The sidecut goes high up into the decambered nose, creating heavy taper (less decamber at the tail). However, there's almost no taper at the contact points, flat running. I'm hoping to achieve the best of both worlds this way - carveability and float in pow. The prototypes are here!
  5. So yeah, you can't buy these cameras in the UK, but you can get them in the USA and as a citizen of nowhere I'm good with that. A couple of years ago GoPro produced the Fusion and I couldn't imaging what I'd want such a thing for - a camera for producing VR, or videos I have to click around in to see things. That did nothing for me and I passed it by, wondering what the fuss was about. Eventually GoPro and others worked out how to use and sell the 360 technology: it's not about "VR", it's about not having to point the camera at what you're shooting, about being able to re-frame the video in post production. It's 100% the future and it's going to kill more traditional approaches I'm sure. For now, the quality's limited, but this is from my second day with the camera and after a quick slightly drunken edit of a single take. The snow on this run wasn't great, and I almost lose it at one point, but it's a start... and this was pretty easy to produce. Snowboarding, oh yeah, that's a dump truck that the snow is about 10cm on windblown crust. We found better snow later, but the light was best when we were up there.

    Carving Powder

    27 seconds edited with Davinci Resolve 14 - I'm downloading the Beta for 15 at the moment (came out yesterday...). Limited to 1280p by the use of that free program, which is a shame. I will see if I can work around that later. This is Terrace BC, where Northern Escape have a rather nice helicopter (A119 Koala) and a couple of good cooks. Conditions were more mid-winter than spring, with no corn snow at all, everything rideable all day long, every day. A lot of vertical was consumed - rumoured to be the season maximum. Burton Dump Truck, F2 Intec, HSPs.
  7. Ridden with hard boots of course. As per the argument on the other forum, this is a Powder Board, so the sidecut is 7m, but if you're worried about that then you're probably not going to spend a lot of time in powder one way or another. The stance is set back by default and there's a 15mm taper. After originally disliking the shape, I've become used to it. It's not pretty, but I can see what it does and the graphics are prettier up close than they look on screen. I rode a few days in Cat-accessed coastal BC powder, and now I'm playing with it in heli interior powder, although the powder's not as magnificent as last season. I picked the 154 - worryingly short for people like me who don't like the Con Artist type short boards in deep powder. The good news is that this feels like a proper snowboard, not like those boys' toys. The weight recommendations are spot on, and this is definitely the right size for someone of my weight. The shape reminds of last season's Capita Spring Break , except that was a bit of a plank, where as this isn't. For what it's worth last year's Spring Breaks were often broken, too... maybe they had a batch problem, and I'm sure they replaced them, but watch out for that if buying 2nd hand (avoid last season's). Anyway, this board is a different kettle of fish. It's wide, with lots of running length, and upturned tip & tail. It's a traditional camber design: thankfully the snowboard rocker fashion is dead other than as a marketing concept. The tail works the way you'd expect, and the camber works well in powder. I've no intention of riding this anywhere near a piste, but if you did I'd guess that it'd be reasonably ok there if you really must. I've not (yet) tried to compare this with my last-year's favourite Landlord, but I think I like this better. The Panhandler looks like a Con Artist successor and is a bit less dedicated back country, so I think I'll pass on that. The Flight Attendant is a rockered narrow park board which I consequently hated from the start. It's a Terje/JG design so maybe you'd expect it to work. Not revolutionary, just a board you can get on which will do anything in a reliable way. It's the sort of board which makes you think that the limit is what you can think of doing with it, rather than what it can do. ----- Other people were on a range of powder designs. Japanese boards seem popular, and generally shapes and marketing (for powder boards at least) seem to have moved some distance in the right direction this season.
  8. Don't mean to brag (well, maybe I want to brag a little bit ) I just received shipment of this new Donek 164 Nomad from Bomberonline! I'm looking forward to winter and hoping for lots of pow! Thanks Jim and Angie! Bomberonline rocks!!!
  9. I may be getting repetitive with this, but watching is entirely optional. Lots of powder this year (so far) - it was the usual compromise between how steep it was safe to ride versus how much snow there was - mostly we got it right, but some days the snow was just so deep (80cms fresh on a 3m base) that it was pretty much ride "in the track" or nothing. I used the Spring Break for some of this as it was pretty much the biggest modern board I could find. The other stuff I videoed was mostly on the Branch Manager - details of those are here: http://forums.bomberonline.com/index.php?/forum/77-all-mountain-hardbooting/

    BC Powder 2015-2016

    Here's my 2016 "Wot I did on my holidays". So far. The start of the season in the interior BC saw more snow than the last two seasons, with a significant base and fresh snow falling. The snow had fallen and consolidated well, so conditions were at a 10-year best in terms of fresh snow combined with available steep terrain. Summary: there was a lot of snow, and it was safe to ride most of it. There was slide activity on some sun-affected slopes but not much. I rode 14 days straight in a mix of stormy and sunny days, both of which are represented here: I'd intended to shoot loose (carry a long pole..) and then crop into it for stabilization and other reasons. The source is 4k but this output is 720p. so there's plenty of space for that. I have not so far done much of that however. This is hard boot riding, albeit on a powder board. There were other boarders about, although almost all of them were soft booters who held up the groups of skiers they were with. My own policy is to start last and be first into the uplift at the bottom every time. The skiers, most of whom are North American, often comment on two things: they're not used to snowboarders who are competent in powder; they've never seen hard boots. I can't help thinking that those two things may be connected in some way. There are fewer snowboarders riding helicopters these days. Perhaps that's caused by a combination of better ski equipment and more park-oriented snowboard equipment.

    Blue River

    Well this is "Alpine snowboarding" in my book, riding the whole mountain, not just a prepared course. So I'll put it here. You need to watch it on Vimeo to get the "HD" (720p) version. The original is 4k and looks somewhat better. When I get a second I will do some After Effects processing on it to fix some stability issues and clone out my skier buddy better. Delkin Devices Kaboom pole GoPro 4k in Supeview Head Stratos pro Burton Landlord 159 (they're back with trad camber, rockered nose - just like my Kessler) F2 Intec bindings Burton AK jacket (thanks Jake) Hmm, actually that's not looking quite right - the frame seems to be a bit stuttery. I will look at how I transcoded it - a frame rate issue perhaps?

    GoPro 4k frame grab

    Here's a reduced-size (for Facebook) frame grab from some 4k GoPro 4 footage. I think this is alpine snowboarding. I'm posting it because I like it and because if you weren't sure what you can do with GoPro these days, this may help.
