KISS — learn’t it early and never forgot.

Besides, my BC buddies tell me it’s really sexy when i hold both ends over my knees and spread them apart… 😯 Shep March 26, 2008 at 3:32 pm #604773 mmcpheet 98 Posts You could also try the tri-fold technique for your skins. Fold the first 1/4 and the last 1/4 in to meet at the center of the skin, and then fold at the center back on itself. Ends up looking like a ‘W’. Makes it so you have less to pull.

Stemming can be really annoying sometimes, it found “skin” instead of “skins” when I explicitly asked for the latter.

After one season, I believe this is the main reason why the glue on my BD Glidelite skins is now practically shot. I like mmcpheet’s suggestion, gotta try that. March 27, 2008 at 6:01 am #604778 Otto 98 Posts Wow, Are you guys all weaklings? I just rip mine apart, and stick the to the planks… No knee shuffle, tip slingin’ or any of that jazz… Just grip and give a good old stretch… OK, so maybe the glue on my skins is getting a little old… Easy to rip apart, and sticks just fine one the board. Plus I ride an older Burton, so it’s stretched out by the tail clip anyhow. March 27, 2008 at 6:19 pm #604779 jimw 1420 Posts The glue on those Burton skins is not in the same league. You’re lucky yours still work. Probably only a matter of time before that glue dies, like it did on the 3 pairs of Burton skins I went through… 🙂 Viewing 10 posts - 1 through 10 (of 10 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
