Anyone know if you can get aftermarket binding inserts? I wanna move my rear foot back an inch.


Action sports technologies has nice inserts for 50 cents each. You can get inserts at most hardware stores but not the same as the real ones. A 121cm board? that's insane! Gotta be at least 133cm :rock:

^^^ That board looks sweet Huck, A short fatty aka chode :lol: That drop is attained from hiking out on the North Side of Kit Carson Pass thats all the info though :D
And Hans, Its super easy to install extra inserts, the inserts are like 10 cents each and the epoxy is cheap, but the bit will cost the most. And yea that Edison from sparks look rad, epecially for the DIY splitter

I call it a chub cuz fish was taken. The hard part about tiny boards is getting all the deck gear to fit without one thing interfering with another. You're locked into where the climbing bracket ends up and have to compromise around that.
This 155 cm has the toe of your boot touch the puck. Lucky it hasn't bothered me.

Nels in south lake, The local hardware store they have a huge selection. But now come to think about it maybe the inserts were 30 cents and the screws were 10 cents :scratch: Damn wake and :doobie:

Post some pics of your mini split when it's done. I'm mostly riding a 156 cm in soft stuff and wish it turned like a mini.

That Atomic is very inspiring. I'll look at that more before the summer board building spree. I just measured the effective edge on my 156 cm and it's 110 cm. The board is rockered tip to tail and just can't do what the 133 cm can. https://vimeo.com/39108231 That's how it rides in firm corn with an inch of pow on top. Extreme music warning. :rock: :rock: Ps That board has no p-tex or edges.

Playin with epoxy is fun!

Tip.... Get the g-flex epoxy and work with it warm, its easier to apply.... pop the bigger bubbles with a toothpick
