Have no fear - magne-traction turns ice into powder.

I have heard lots of Good things about libtechch and gnu with magnatraction. I am curious what other boards people will throw out there. I live on the ice coast and am going to be looking for a new board next year.

Any board with a sharp edge will hold the same as magnetraction. What size boot do you have? so we can deterrmine waist width, and do you do any switch riding?

My All mtn board is a Nitro Misfit and the thing rips...but it is also a twin. I'd recommend the Nitro Pantera 157 or 160 as a directional board. You def won't be disappointed.
