• @Jimy, you may have seen them, but a pair of Carve Company bindings are for sale on BOL.

    Carve Company bindings for sale

  • Yes, bigger guy.

    Let BOL know your size and what kind of riding you want to do on the bindings. It will make a difference on how much flex you can get out of a pair of bindings and how strong they need to be to hold up to your size. I know a 200 pound carver who broke both pairs of F2 Carve RXs at one time and I know another 200 pound carver who…[Read more]

  • Any of the Bomber bindings are going to be too heavy and too stiff for what you want to accomplish. The canting is dependent on the cant base plate that you have. They come in zero, three, and six degrees. It sounds like you have a 3 or a 6.

    Barrows, maybe you don’t need to get the Millisurf. ; )

    It is clearly designed to be a super light, fun, capable board that is particularly geared toward powder, even steeper powder and some mixed conditions. That does not mean it is designed to be ideal for you. I am excited they have produced it and only wish it had been out for this winter.

  • Equipment had improved a lot since the last post in this thread.

    Yes, you can jump turn a snowboard on steeper, firm snow. Just make sure you land as gently as possible, keep your body centered over the board and be prepared to slide downhill a bit as you bring your board back under control. What I call a ‘quick turn’ is another option. That is…[Read more]

    Edit: overlapping posts

    As I touched on above (while your were typing probably), I doubt Peter Bauer is stuck in the past along with other top designers. Scooby makes awesome boards, but in my discussions with him, they are much better for Utah than for the eastern Sierra where I ride. Otherwise, I might have tried one already. I like that…[Read more]

    I don’t know guys.

    Taylor, IIRC correctly, you are north of 6’ and 220ish pounds? Clearly, few boards are made for you and I completely understand why you want longer boards and bigger sidecuts.

    Board design is a complex interplay of a number of different design parameters all working together (ideally). It is pretty clear to me that you do not…[Read more]

    Barrows, I was thinking more about the Millisurf edge measurement.

    Running length to me has always meant the ends of the contact points when the board is laying flat on a hard surface. Effective edge has always been how much edge contact there is when the board is put slightly on edge. Before rocker and early rise noses, these were effectively…[Read more]

    Nice to hear from you Barrows.

    There is 18mm of taper. The running length seems a bit short for the overall length considering the tail is so short, but it is so hard to define in the era of early rise noses. That measurement might be with the board laying flat on a hard surface. When you put it on edge, even slightly, you get another 8 to 10 cm…[Read more]

    I just had my final test day of the Gignoux boots for the season. I will still be making tweaks to the boots, but they are riding really well right now. Next, I will be trying them on steeper lines during Oregon’s volcano corn season.

    Keffler has probably given more thought to retrofits than I have. It is great to see an adjustable forward flex design available to splitboarders. A lot of riders on real hardboots (for racing and carving groomers) use a spring system to control the forward (and heel side) flex of their boots.

    I think the ease of a retrofit will be boot…[Read more]
