Lamps, last year they had a directional version of the nug with iirc s-rocker and a little taper. Just awesome for allmountain. This year it has become the Root, with flat camber
Yah, the root comes in those sizes, methinks I'll look for a demo

so many boards to try, so little time...

You guys are definitely convincing me to swap them. I would definitely want more float and stability. Since its directional though, cant I just move the bindings back a little to provide a similar effect? Or is it all about surface area and rider weight?

not sure how many times I have to say this: if you can swap it easily, swap it!
forget about your weight etc. just go by the 8-10 cm rule. you normally ride a 156, right? what's 156 minus 8?

Is it 144?

I was told there would be no math.

hey

ya that sounds pretty small for you dude. Even though it's a great pow board, it won't even seem like it with that size...

Check out the Burton Whammy Bar...

Noz should be off the scale. We smashed Happo today. It was bottomless!

Sadly not, one of my riding buddies did though apparently he was just cruising and busting some tweaked out methods and indies in the powder around the yamabiko area.
