Recommended Posts

Oct 19, 2021 Quick update, There's a major change on Rama's schedule, and he can't make it this December. With that sudden change, we have to delay the camp until further notice. 

 

Edited by Sunan
The event has to be cancelled.

More details will be provided as our team plans for Rama and Shimhoon's trip. To gain some traction of the camp (especially the reliability of this camp)  at this time, please refer to Shimhoon Film's latest two youtube posts, and Shimhoonfilm Instagram. Shimhoon shot the July 4th independence day firework from my home at Jersey City, and recently visited Bigsnow and taught three of us softboot carving enthusiasts at Bigsnow American Dream for two weeks. 

  I would like to thank Alpinesnowboarder and Jack M for supporting our idea to host a camp in Colorado this winter 😃

PS: Rama likes to put Shimhoon's sticker on top 😛

Sounds great, good luck!  Just so you know, the biggest hardboot freecarving event in the US is happening January 31 to February 3.  Details are here:

That's the prime event each season! 

Our plan is to make this happen either in December (early or mid) or in March, when none of Rama, Shimhoon or Ryan would have a scheduling conflict.

Sounds fun! I'd be interested. For me, the cheaper the resort the better 😉

 We'll try to make it happen with as little cost as possible. 🙂

sound fun, is there any planning coming out to west coast like Mt rose, kirkwood, heavenly, or northstar. I am in for this winter.if not then would be a road trip.

 

The primary destination will be in Colorado for this event, sort of a middle ground for everyone. I know a group of LAers coming to meet with RAMA this winter.

Because Giri Watts is an AASI examiner and an employee of Copper Mnt. We have talked with Giri himself. For people outside of AASI (SAJ demonstrator + examiner in this case), things are much more compliated, regrettably. 😂

      I am looking to sell my Salomon Malamute softboots, size 9 US mens. They are in excellent condition, almost no signs of wear. They are from the 2016/2017 season, purchased new at REI and used maybe 12 times or so since. They are just a bit too small for me, I typically wear size 10.

      These boots are perhaps the stiffest softboots on the market. They also use plastic inserts to increase stiffness, all of which are accounted for and included. The liners are advertised as heat moldable, I had REI mold them once when I purchased.
      Salomon's current model is almost the same as what I'm selling here, with liners being the biggest difference (no more synching cord on the newer liners) and a different tread pattern on the sole. Also, the orange plastic "powerframe" is light blue on the current model. The current model retails for 399.95 USD.
      I'm asking 200.00 USD for these, buyer pays shipping. Please reply if interested.

      Though my experiment with hardbooting is over (for now, who knows what tomorrow might bring) I still need a stiff setup. My Burtons are "OK" but not really up to the task. Every time I lean into the tongue they pretty much let me fall forward and don't support toe side turns.
      I managed to find some NOS Nidecker/Flow Talons and stuffed a pair of Intuition wrap liners in them. The result is really really stiff, like hardboot stiff but with a much shorter BSL. I hope this will allow me to ride at the angles I find comfortable while giving enough support.
       

       
      Just out of curiosity, for softbooters, what setup have you been using?

      SOLD.
      166cm, 27.5cm waist, 10.5m avg VSR. Excellent condition, built in fall of 2018.

      Saw this and thought it deserved to be here. These riders carve with impressive style.

      They really friggin’ hurt.
      really though other than that.
      i have a new set of drivers, I like them, sort of. They are better than the old malamutes.
      So, for a long time most high end boots came in one of two configurations either a hinge type that works better but they are much softer or like the driver where to flex forward it forces the boot to deform this crushes the foot, that shit hurts and it’s because the driver has no hinge. 
      It looks like it’s still this way with most brands.. 
      I’ve had a couple sets of 32s and Burtons that hinge, this is a better design, why the hell cant they just build one with a stiffer tongue? 
      Anyone have an answer to that? 
      Pictured is a hinged design.. I actually forgot I had these boots.

      I wrote reviews of this board in following thread.  It was interesting experience to test a board that is constructed with partial new technologies (carbon beams, titanal laminated, kevlar layers). The board is made for specifically Korean softboot carving market, which is getting popular recent years.  

      In my opinion, this construction and shape allow non-hardboot experience softbooters to really get into 'carving' without penalties from conventional mass-market all mountain/carving decks.  its similarity of flex, sidecut radius, and decambered nose with 'normal' softboot snowboards surely make them comfortable to learn and excel with this board. I know one colleague who started alpine snowboarding with a proper modern alpine deck few years ago but he has been in quiet struggle.  Now with this deck (shorter version), he rides quiet comfortable and progresses  his way toward alpine snowboarding. 
      Intrigued by its constructions, I got this last month from Korea and test rode 3 days (3-4 hours/day).  Its condition is like new.  (White smudges on the photo are from my hands). The base is covered with wax.  SOLD
      Here are my postings for spec. and its characteristics.
