Which would you prefer on chop/ice conditions...grip or damping
I was in a discussion with a buddy in regards to hard charging a groomer when it's just chop,crud and ice. We both agreed the fear (at least in us) is the board jumping around which can cause the catching of an edge more easily. So the discussion moved to different decks and the topic of one deck having great grip with decent damping vs great damping with decent edge hold.
So which would be better in the chop,crud, ice in terms of the deck not getting thrown around and slipping right under you? Greater grip or greater damping?
