Good to board with you ETM and thanks for lending out your powder boards.
I have not gone through the full 9 pages of this interesting thread. But this last post might tell me something I never knew before. I have never experienced deep powder in my short snowboarding pursuit.

Does a swallow tail effectively eliminate the need to exert rear foot pressure in order to maintain good float in deep powder?
