I know, I am a gear whore lol. I called it, so there I said it first. the only bad thing is when I wreck, which is infrequent, the gopro ends up pointing at my belly button, which oddly makes for an interesting video if I forget.

It literally scares me to death going slow. Brett Urbach my pro trainer finally got me to go 12mph using nice lasy S turn transitions by asking me to follow him. When I go slow I think about all the bad things that could happen, like loosing the board edge, which I did on second day on magic carpet (wasn't sure if I was dead so I just laid there on my back to make sure everything was still connected to me where it should be). When I carve at high speed I don't have time to worry and just focus on technique and riding correctly, which in essence is what Brett says to do, i.e. Don't think just do. The saw helps me do that since it is so fast and requires such edge control precision, no time to think, i.e. Just do. I'm not saying I just bomb straight down the mountain. I have nice tight transitions, i.e. carves.

I almost feel bad about it after learning this is a 60 year old dude and he's only been riding 3 months.

I figured it was just a dumbass kid.

My pleasure! I must say I enjoy the company of snowboarders and this forum. One last thing about the Ripsaw. It seems to turn better than the proto. These are both wides, so don't know if this is true for non wides. My basis for saying this is that just starting three months ago, I qualitatively find that transitions are easier on the saw compared to the proto. Although the saw is more sensitive to errors in technique, this does not seem to be true at normal riding speeds versus the proto. When you go slow you notice it but not at normal riding speeds. I don't know why this seems to be true. I have compared the saw and proto side by side. I observe a subtle difference in the nose and tail of the saw, which is a tad narrower in this area on the saw and also seems to have slightly more lift versus the proto. I would not be surprised to see these characteristics appear on all future Never Summer boards. Finally, my only question is what do we do on this forum in the summer months?

Loftness It's funny that the Ripsaw is appealing so much to us 'older' folks(clock turns to 40 on me next week) when it's the more aggressive of NS's boards right now. But I'm addicted to mine as well.
