Yeah I think a couple people misinterpreted in my EVO-R thread. In chop, on a snowboard, sometimes it's useful to use a technique similar to how you would kind of bomb powder- dynamic board turns that are more angled toward the fall line. But my problem was in trying to bomb the choppy steeps, not really taking highly rotated turns that were angled more toward the fall line, which requires you to dig in really hard.

Anyhow, the EVO-R is a very impressive snowboard. Given it's designation as more of a park board, it really performs well everywhere. For me even more so because I chose a length that's a couple of cm longer than I normally would for a "park" board.
