Riley212 i've got a charlie slasher, it is great when in pow but turns into a lifeless plank on hard snow. this is why i bought my turbo dream. It has about the same pow performance but way more fun on piste and rides switch better.

Naturesabre Man that'd be awesome but this is my first year in CO(going to school, freshmen) so I bought a pass for Keystone +A-Basin as it was the cheapest and I was worried I'd be too busy with sports and school to make it out as often as I have been. I am so addicted to boarding, more than I ever have been. It's awesome

linvillegorge Where do you ride? If you ride Loveland, I'd be more than happy to let you take a couple of laps on mine if you'd like.

Naturesabre haha alright then, never woulda known. I just thought the further back stance would be better for it. I guess I didn't consider the much bigger taper on the slasher if that has much to do with it. My bad I'm new to the powder-riding realm of boarding and going based primarily on hear-say and what time I've spent on fresh snow and in trees.

linvillegorge Ummm... it's pretty much impossible to get surfier than the Charlie Slasher.

Naturesabre Yeah, that and the Beast have become what I'm primarily looking at. They're both sweet but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go with the GNU(thanks Riley212!!) because of the camber profile, magnetraction, and the setback on it should give it a surfier feel than the Capita. The Charlie seems cool because of the more freestyle inspired style of pow riding but I doubt I'll actually be riding in a freestyle-like manner in the deep.

^^^But I appreciate the input! the more ideas are making decisions difficult :P

haha have fun with that!

Tatanka Head I'm not a math geek/engineer, nor did I sleep in at a Holiday Inn last night, but I think the basic formula is BxW. So if you find an average width and length of contact and multiply the two together it should work.

I basically multiplied:
27x125.2=3380.4cm2 for the Charlie Slasher
26x114=2964cm2 for the Jones

Then I guess if you divide your weight in kg to the area of the board you would get kg/cm2.

Please note: I suck at math. And with board shape and nose/tail width variations there will be a major +/- in cm2. So if you plan on using this info for your doctorate in snowboarding then please remember it is not peer-reviewed and the author advises against using this as a "trust me, I know about board contact area" source.
