This is an excellent two-part video about the physics of snowboard sidecut and turns - by Sean Martin at Donek Snowboards. If you're at all interested the relationship between snowboard design and turn characteristics, you'll enjoy geeking out with this.

Part 1: http://youtu.be/uE1YdDj_L0o

I ditto that comment, LOL!! :bananas: A decided slant to groomed alpine race course conditions, which is what I would expect from Donek - but still a good view. :thumpsup:

Equally funny and endearing. Sean definitely has his head around this stuff. I think it's really cool that he takes the time to make videos explaining these concepts. The guy is astute.
