Wangta have you looked the the new lib c1 profile with rocker in the nose and camber throughth e tail? It looks like a really promising profile for a do everything pow board for those that don't have a dedicated pow board.

Timmy is that the one you just picked up in like new condition? How are you liki??ng the hefes?

Trueish. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't c1 only on the MC last year? This year they're using it on a few more boards with a broader appeal. The MC fits a pretty specific rider. The new Emma and JL Classic look good and the Hot Knife fits well for those looking for a softer deck.

Ya, that's the one. It was in better than like new condition. I'm completely heartbroken. I rode it for(no joke) 30 seconds. About 50 feet & snapped it.


I honestly have no idea how it even rides. I might have done 1 carve on it, but I can't recall it. So I might not have even got a single carve on it.

As far fetched & bull shit as that sounds. (I would probably call bull shit if I heard this story) it's what happened. I ran into a member on this forum @ the bottom of the lift. We rode up 2 separate lifts all the way to the top.
He can confirm it. He's not a life long buddy either, I don't even know his real name. I'm sure we did a proper introduction, but I can't remember?

I couldn't stop talkin' about how I had been itchin' to take this thing out, then 30 seconds after my bindings were done up , I snapped it.

I then had a 2010 ft vertical drop to get down, in 2 ft of fresh.
I will say that if it wasn't for the slimewalls, I would have been riding those stupid fuckin' Dual snowboard coke trays down. That's the only thing holding this thing from becoming 2 pieces.

I'm in deadly shape right now, down to about 165lbs. With possibly the most defined 6 pack I've ever had in my life. ( & I'm pushin' 40)
I don't think I'm even in the weight category for a 164?
Someone of that weight shouldn't snap a deck that easy.

Had to sell the Hefe's, so I didn't even get to try those either

Bull shit, I tells ya.

TT

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

Then I am so close to immortality

You are confusing C1 and C3. C1 was introduced last year for the La Niņa MC - and that is still the only Lib-Tech board with that camber profile. C3 is new this year on the Hot Knife, Jamie Lynn Classic, and the Emma Peel.

Research is key here. For powder boards, the main objective is to keep the board afloat--keeping tip up. First thing I would look at is make sure the tail is skinnier than the tip. if the tail and tip are same width--its not a powder board. Most powder boards are about 2 centimeters more narrow. The idea is to make the back end sink a bit. Plus camber boards don't do quite as well as hybrids. Hybrids do better in powder.

As long as the board has these 2 features, it will make a good powder board. You can find boards that do powder and all mountain very well.

So when doing your research look for those 2 key things.
