Lol. I actually went hiking with snowshoes last time. That didn't last long.

Family has timeshare there. I'll have to let them know.

Well hopefully they resolve it or reach compromise agreement for this season.

Superhero was my go-to board last season in the North East as an all-mountain board. For what you intend to use it for, in my opinion, you made a great choice...enjoy!

Don't do that.

Do your toeside carves, right after your heelside carves.

You're only gonna wipeout a couple times, but then you'll have it.

It'll just become riding.

Last year some dude brought his girlfriend, she NEVER toeside carved.
EVER.

It bugged me sooo much.:brick:
I was more unimpressed with buddy for not makin' her learn it.
At first I thought she wasn't too bad she could bomb certain parts.

But only certain spots.
She couldn't go to half the mtn, the toe side

Not suggesting that's what you do.

By the end of the day, my conclusion......
What she was doing, wasn't snowboarding.

I don't know what the fuck you'd call it?
It was like a pro level, falling leaf.


TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
