Aghhh!....

I am so mad at myself.....

I've not been boarding for a while as we had a baby and you know that changes a lot of stuff!...

Anyway, I went out with the club at work and we had a great time....


I had a go at tripods and some other ground tricks.... then....

Today, I had another session and it was not so good....

I fell a few times but the worst was hitting a kicker way too fast, crashed and broke my helmet!

Do you think I should open the side cut a little???

BTW, I'm a size 10....
Oh, okay. Keep the sidecut as is if the snowdome is where you plan on progressing your skills. Crawl, walk, then run right? Regardless of how the board pans out, you win. This is just the start.

Board width under the inserts should be good for your boot size.

KillerDave BTW, I should have changed the nose and tail to 190....
So it would be a twin....

If anyone wants to advise on the side cut... please do chip in....

It doesn't really serve any purpose as it is not enough to add any real float in pow, and the additional swing weight will not be felt while spinning tricks.
Thanks!

the profile is -13mm Rocker/camber with 0 offset.... and the nose and tail are both 365mm radius...

As I'm in the UK, I'm thinking of getting it all from Europe but I can't fine a tapered base... Not quite sure I want to do that part myself???

Coupla observations. The sidecut radius is pretty small compared to most boards. What are you planning to use the board for? Typical "do-it-all" radii are from the mid sevens to high eights. What boot size do you wear? The waist width is on the narrow side but with the aggressive sidecut, may be the board width at the inserts is wide enough for your boot?
