    Any more thoughts on gen 3 or the Pow?
    Thunking of upgrading my gen 1 and would like to feel more secure on hard stuff. Live in Norway, so have too many days on iced over uneven terrain at the bottom of the descent.

  • Thanks!
    Not looking for a new split, as I am very pleased with the one I got. But from what you guys are saying I am gonna get myself a more playful solid and see if I can’t improve my technique on that one. Got it confirmed yesterday when I switched board with a friend. He had a much shorter park board. I could easily whip it around and play more…[Read more]

  • I do agree. Both on the specific backcountry skill set and the experience of it. Backcountry is the reasons I haven’t given up on snowboarding. And I agree that the Furberg is very good in all conditions. I love how stable and smooth it feels.

    But I guess I don’t agree on the intermediate-expert fairly quickly part. At least that is where I…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the reply Hans!

    Hmm, then I guess I should look for another board to get help with learning new stuff.

    I spend too much time in the resort and have a couple of weeks to do my backcountry trips. But they are the main focus. All my riding in the resort is just to be able to be a better backcountry rider. And my reasoning is that the…[Read more]

  • Hi!
    I have been stalking these forums for a while and have a ” beginner-ish” question for you all. I ask it here as I have gotten good responses earlier and this is one of the few places where people seems to know the Furberg line of snowboards.

    I have been snowboarding on and off for a long time, but never really gotten good. Always stayed…[Read more]

  • In other words from screw to screw? I have a 4 screw plate. From the back most pair of screws on the front foot to the back most pair of screws on the back foot is my stance width.

    This is an excellent point! As the board I ride have a rocker profile, railing won’t be my focus. Rather “slarves” as I learnt from my last question here. I also…[Read more]

  • Thanks guys! I think I’m starting to see how this works cause of your detailed answers. Much appreciated.

    I’m 92kg so the Twin should be okay. Went for the longest option on both boards.

    When measuring shoulder width, are we talking from the outside of the arm? And when you transfer it to the board, is it the center of the binding that is the…[Read more]

  • Hi.
    I would like to get a better understanding of how to set up my boards and therfor I ask here. By set-up I mean where to place my bindings, e.g. stance width and and distance to nose/tail.but more importantly, how will this effect my riding.

    The boards I’m setting up are Furberg split and Furberg Twin. I’m 1,96 cm

    Condtions for the Split is…[Read more]

    Thanks everybody.
    Just realized that the bindings where not mounted centered on the board. That might explain some of my difficulties.

    Update: adjusted the bindings correctly and went to try it out in some pow. Most fun I have had in years. Did not matter if it was pow or grooms. I think I’ll start taking my split with me instead of my regular…[Read more]

    So a more centered turn where I don’t digg the rail in. Rotate from the middle of the board and let it slide?

    What does the markings a and b mean on the pucks?

  • runard replied to the topic Furberg Snowboards in the forum Splitboards 6 years, 2 months ago

    I have centered the bindings relative to the holes on the board. Think I put it at +18/+3. But am unsure if I did it correctly. I’m 1,96 so the 73 should be the right size.

    Hi.
    I’m having a hard time getting comfortable on the split 73. On prepped snow it feels unstable and soft. When I lay it flat it sort of starts drifting. And with lots of pow between tight trees the turning is really hard. Especially the toe turn is a struggle. I’m a beginner/intermediat who have just learnt carving.
