  1. Been using the Thirst 8RW this season for GS racing and carving this season. This season is my first racing Slalom and Giant Slalom, I have been riding soft boot racing boards for the last decade. I have ridden all the super expensive boards out there, I even regretfully own a couple of them. The first day I rode the Thirst 8RW it held a better edge than any of my other boards. Every time I go out on the 8RW I find a new gear and I go faster than the time before. I raced the 8RW on Presidents day at White Pass in a GS race. I won two gold medals and the Thirst board was amazing! I would race this board at any level of competition. I qualified for Nationals at Copper Mtn. I hope to go but I'm still trying to figure out if I can. The Thirst board that I'm borrowing has more power than my Donek and holds a better edge than my Kessler. If your wanting a high end board with a ton of power the 8RW is the one.
  2. hi guys, recently I have decided to learn how to snowboard and I have a old snowboard like 10 years old but it's a racing snowboard. It's Fanatic brand, 180cm (5.9). I'm 186cm. I am using the ski boots from my ski but they are not very good fitting my legs. If you can see it in the picture, it looks like they are loose at the top. (they are fitted on maximum but there is a lot of space for my hand to freely enter the space) I was reading this forum for a while and I understand that I shouldn't be using the ski boots for snowboard. My question is: is there any good boot what I can use on the snowboard and also for skiing? Or, because I am just a beginner, should I buy some board with the soft bindings? Also, I tried a freestyle snowboard with a soft binding, but the shoe (it was from a rental) was a loose at the top. Shouldn't be the shoe firm on the top? thanx for your advices .)
  3. Hey, I'm new here. I'm an adaptive snowboarder who finally started racing again. I qualified for nationals but I've never been. There are a few questions I have. I'm kinda confused on the lodging situation tbh. I got out to Breck often and I usually just stay at Beaver Run Resort, so right at the base of Peak 9. How does it work at Copper? From what I've been looking at they all seem like condo rentals and I'm really just looking for a hotel room. I plan on racing GS and Banked Slalom (if they have it). Is it going to be the same as home series races? Pay to race?
  4. Who's in? GS and SL dates are January 6 at Sunday River and February 24 at Sugarloaf. Ironically I won't be able to make the Sugarloaf event. Register here: https://www.usasa.org/index.php/events/regional-events/regional-series-schedule
  5. Hey Everyone, I am proud to announce the creation of an adult snowboard team for the 2016-2017 Season at Crotched Mountain New Hampshire. I have worked with the mountain to secure lane space every Saturday evening from 6pm – 9pm, but starting as early as Crotched will allow us to set course; we have our own stubbies, and will be setting both GS and SL courses. Coaching is graciously being provided by Eric Brammer (“Eric Brammer Aka PSR” here on Bomber), a man with a long history of providing solid training to aspiring racers. The goal is to provide an avenue for adult riders to be coached and improve, as well as foster a stronger community among East Coast hard boot riders. Although the program is aimed at improving times in course, you of course do not have to be an aspiring World Cup racer to benefit from the program—the goal is to simply help all who participate become stronger riders. We aim to provide coaching to anyone who wishes to participate. We are going for a laid back, all riders are welcome kind of vibe. We are currently seeking to build the team out to eight “Core Members” for this first year. A Core Team Member is required to pay for the program in full up front; the benefit is a less expensive per-session cost. Drop In’s are also welcome; however the per session cost will be more expensive. See details on cost below. At this point there is no formal deadline for paying, but space will fill up. If you are interested, please PM me and we can move the conversation to the phone. Program details: · Program is hosted by Crotched Mountain in New Hampshire (non-mountain affiliated, we are a private team) · Program length is 12 weeks (12 Saturday evenings), with the possibility of more pending snow conditions · Program will start in December · Coach is Eric Brammer · Cost is $300 / person for the 12 week program for Core Members. This does not include lift ticket ($30/night) or season pass. This price includes all course access and coaching for the 12 weeks · Refunds will be given on a pro-rated bases for any cancelled sessions · Non-Core team member drop in’s welcome: cost per session is $40, not including lift ticket ($30/night). Please contact me by Thursday the week of so I can reserve your spot. · Must be 18+ to participate This program is meant to resolve the current issue with adult riders on the East Coast not being able to find coaching, and not having the opportunity to train in a proper race course for snowboarders. It’s going to be grass roots the first year, but with enough interest and participation we could see this program grow and grow. To my knowledge, this will be the only adult program on the East Coast! Please contact me directly with any questions, happy to talk snowboarding any time of year. Mitch

  7. I do this just for my own curiosity. Everyone (male and 1 female*) with an under 37 handicap that has raced enough to have a national ranking this season. Yes this would be easy for NASTAR to do but they don't. (Yes, this a x/post from the NASTAR forums) [TABLE=class: cms_table] <tbody>[TR] [TD][TABLE=class: cms_table] <tbody>[TR] [TD]Competitor[/TD] [TD]Hometown[/TD] [TD]Average Handicap[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Mark Temple[/TD] [TD]Bolton, MA[/TD] [TD]20.46[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Heather Herde*[/TD] [TD]Salt Lake City, UT[/TD] [TD]20.53[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Todd Brown[/TD] [TD]Boxborough, MA[/TD] [TD]25.75[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Richard Ramminger[/TD] [TD]Kiel, WI[/TD] [TD]26.15[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Brett Nemke[/TD] [TD]Madison, WI[/TD] [TD]26.99[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Joe Lojko[/TD] [TD]Duxbury, MA[/TD] [TD]27.55[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]David Magno[/TD] [TD]Marquette, MI[/TD] [TD]27.84[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Jacek Sawicki[/TD] [TD]Tannersville, NY[/TD] [TD]28.76[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Brian Spink[/TD] [TD]Mystic, CT[/TD] [TD]28.92[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Dave Paulger[/TD] [TD]Cranmore, NH[/TD] [TD]30.32[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Robert Lu[/TD] [TD]Noank, CT[/TD] [TD]30.70[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Dan Meder[/TD] [TD]Tully, NY[/TD] [TD]30.92[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Chris May[/TD] [TD]Burnsville, MN[/TD] [TD]31.83[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]David Wilcox[/TD] [TD]Bloomington, IN[/TD] [TD]32.91[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Dennis Duvall[/TD] [TD]Apulia Station, NY[/TD] [TD]33.78[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Denis Colle[/TD] [TD]Park City, UT[/TD] [TD]33.97[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Lars Jensen[/TD] [TD]Falls Church, VA[/TD] [TD]34.94[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]John Reents[/TD] [TD]Hastings, MN[/TD] [TD]35.11[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Kevin Arruda[/TD] [TD]Worcester, MA[/TD] [TD]35.25[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Matty Burkett[/TD] [TD]Cranmore, NH[/TD] [TD]35.39[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Patrick Moore[/TD] [TD]Newington, CT[/TD] [TD]36.02[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Erich Shrack[/TD] [TD]Sandpoint, ID[/TD] [TD]36.42[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Joe McGurn[/TD] [TD]Plaistow, NH[/TD] [TD]36.93[/TD] [/TR] </tbody>[/TABLE] [/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] </tbody>[/TABLE] *FIS competitor in the midst! http://heatherherde.com/
  8. Hey Just a question on tuning edges for SBX. What is a common base and side edge angle for racing. I've heard 0-1 on base and 1-2 on side.
  9. I have two videos of me at today's NASTAR races. Your constructive criticism is welcome. Some important notes: -I don't take a tighter line over the gates as this is a VERY busy NASTAR day here at Paoli and the snow was softening in the sun. I cut over the gates and they'll come out... no one is happy. I'm the only knuckle-dragger and I like to build our images with the skiers. -I saw the first video and realized I was laying back. I tried staying forward the second run with a .62 reduction in time. -The videos were shot by my 13 yr old. What a great kid. :) 26.12 time-https://plus.google.com/u/0/104197080966614807007/posts/ALTjPTsARhK 25.50 time-https://plus.google.com/u/0/104197080966614807007/posts/WKiQqK3ppwm BTW- The temps came up to slightly above freezing with much sunshine but the course held together quite well today.
  10. Has anyone tried riding with the new Krypton Pro ID's. I have been contemplating getting these. I know that some of the pros ride them. I was just looking for a little more information. I weigh probably about 160lbs without gear on. I ride pretty agressively and am looking to race frequently this coming winter. Any advise would be amazing, thank you. :D
