Not sure if I'm allowed to link to another forum on here... I'll post this link as it's really not a competing forum to this one. heelside chatter
The board I'm riding is the Virus Avalanche FLP AFT 160
. The effective edge is over 140 cm on it, vs 123 cm or so for the T7 so it REALLY rails. Not as hard as a hardbooter but leaps and bounds over a traditional shaped freeride board.
Not touching the snow meant that I was loading the board enough to actually catch a bit of air when transitioning from edge to edge. I used to do it on the old board too, yesterday was the first time I've really got into it carving turn after turn on the new board.
