I suggest just slowing it down and learning to ride. Learn to initiate turns with your front foot and edge catches all but disappear..
It sounds like exactly what I'm looking for, so I'm interested to hear from those who have ridden this board.
I don't know, does 200-250 days from new to destroyed qualify me? My chairlift is called "Magic Carpet"
Catching an edge is not the board, it is the rider. Lots of people ride less forgiving boards without problems when they know how to ride. A more forgiving board may make it less likely you'll catch an edge but if you're still riding with poor technique it will still happen.
Fix your riding problem and it won't matter what board you have.
I'm sensing a theme *chuckle.
If your set on getting a new board, try something with magne traction. It will be a bit more forgiving when riding. Gnu, lib tech and rossignol all make boards with magne traction. Do yourself a favor though and pay for a lesson.
Errr...WHAAA? U don't need magnetraction in CO, you barely need metal edges, also the hooky feel of mag on turn exit is the last thing someone who is being held back by bad basics needs (in this case board torsion and proper edge engagement) - so you get 1/2 credit for suggesting a lesson :P
Sounds like u want this board, lots of people love it for a reason, mine tossed me on my face on hardpack a few times too and I knew how to ride, but thats no reason to blame the board, I just learned not to do that retarded shit, theres no call for riding that way (on your face and ass lol).
