Poutanen. Please post me a link to one of those hardboot forums. I would like to read a little what they like to discuss about in my idle time haha.
Could you kindly remind the new board you are using now, if you have already mentioned it somewhere in the forum earlier.
I understand your frustration. When we heelside chatter people put so much conscious effort into assuming some new body movements upon some advice, just in the hope of getting rid of that chatter and regain some of that steep slope confidence ...... we are pretty miserable, and even more so if we do not get consistent improvements after each run. And at the same time, toeside edge-hold is a piece of cake no matter if you enter the turn hard or mellow.
You were not touching the snow? Care to elaborate?
