Well the part I am most impressed with is at minute 1:09. You cruised through that nasty flat stretch with no issues. If I had a nickle for everytime my wife or 7 year old had to stop in that area I would be rich

Well id rank them like this :
-Burton custom
-Bataleon riot
-Burton TWC
TBT wont hold an edge good anywhere and since you dont ride pow id check that one off. Custom with camber could be an option and so could TWC or maybe NS SL? Magne-traction from Mervin is huge when carving on icy groomers.

I don't ever claim to be any good, at all, but that run seemed like a normal run to me. The only thing I can't do that he can, is ride switch.

All he did was ride a groomer down the mountain, did a few ollies, and rode switch. His switch riding seemed natural, but other than that, you could do what he did with a soft board.

And who ever said that wasn't a green run I'm scared to ask what a green run is in your area. Maybe a few borderline low low low blue areas, but that shit was pretty flat all the way through.

he rides switch well, and does 180's well too, that's not shabby

I'd say burton custom, cambered version would go very well with the Ions and Cartels, and be great for carving around on groomers and doing a few ollies etc.

will be much more precise than the rockered twc board

I thought he was a solid rider. I enjoyed the video. I have taken that run so many times. I love the run from the very top of the mountain to the very bottom. What a leg burner.

Right now its between the Never Summer Heritage and the Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro. I'm strongly leaning towards the Travis Rice but after reading SnowWolf's review I'm not going to count out the Heritage just yet. Do you think the Cartels and Ion boots are a good match for these boards? Would you recommend something different?

Certainly that run is short and relatively flat (no steeps), any board that is not a total noodle could do that fine. Might want to go mid flex or above if your aim is to ride fast and aggressive.

The guy in the vid clearly has some decent riding skills, nice upright posture with flexed lower body and he is carrying a camera the whole while. My guess is he could do more tricks than that without the camera.

He isn't showing us anything special, but if you are going to comment negatively on anyones riding lets see you post up a vid of your own.

The difference between a rider who can ride switch comfortably and one that can't is pretty significant IMO.

How about a new forum rule?
Any critical post of someones riding requires that you post up a vid of your own.
