I can hear Angry Snowboarder telling me "Learn to ride, dumbass" and he's right and I'm working on it. My NS Legacy with RC design is helping to keep me stable and progressing.

Side note; I'd love a Proto, I'd like to expand my free style and take advantage of that true twin.
Hey Sabatoa,

Thanks so much for your support and getting involved with my contest.

The RC gives me the same confidence, especially when riding at high speeds in those variable conditions. I love riding this big, open cruiser at Copper Mountain later in the afternoon. When you get that low light, ice and choppy patches. I can ride these conditions so fast it's almost scary, much faster than I could on a traditional cambered board. Because if it gets scetchy, I can get on the rocker and recover. Making it less likely to catch that edge, then re-engage the camber and get back on edge.

Keep progressing and having fun.
