I've been blogging for 3-4 years now. I don't really care if no-one reads them but me, coz they're really for my own use. But it might actually help other noobs to see what someone else goes through.
not to take this off topic, but i never really knew that blog thing was there til you mentioned it. You guys should market that a little more. I may use that to keep track of my season next year, i wont even bother for this year im too far in to try.

wrathfuldeity Yes Mittens...but what kind...over the sleeve, under, with liners, gortex, expedition, with strings, black or orange, split finger, warmer pockets.

What BA recommends...but also the hill/snow/conditions/terrain will somewhat determine the type of board...but also your riding style...and you haven't developed a style yet...only noob style.

BurtonAvenger /thread soft twin board with mild sidecut that can handle all mountain.

Seriously 17 days and you're riding all those decks? You have no consistency in your riding you don't even know what you're looking for in a deck.

Maybe you can get some boots with shrinktech to help you out if you think the wide is absolutely way to wide. I would go with the Nitro, because that is what you absolutely liked the most, i wouldnt wanna risk not getting the right one if i were you.
Thanks.

First, about me:

Experience/Level: 17 days all in all,

I've been reading too much and needed to try a few boards out to clear up a few things. I can tell you this much: I'm pushing 40. There's no way in hell I'll become a dedicated park rider.

Similar angles on most boards, usually +15/-12. Almost all of the experimenting has been with the Blunt.

This wasn't meant as a review - I'm fully aware I'm not experienced enough for that, and even if I did, I would have put it in the Reviews section - but more as a way of clearing my thoughts and trying to describe what I felt with the different boards.

I totally agree. But I don't have an all mtn board, hence this thread. I have a board, the Blunt. But one thing that's become clear to me after trying the Team GW is that my own board isn't optimal. I could get the Team but I'm unsure about the width. I could get the One but I'm afraid it'll feel to similar to the Taipan, or too damp(?) like the big Angus. Or, I could stick with the Blunt and try to evolve on that one, and get the lim. CS, which at this point is just plain stupid, but I'd see it as a future investment before it disappears. That's what this thread is about.


One specific question: The "thickness" that I felt with the big Angus, is this what's generally referred to as "dampness"? Just trying to learn and understand...
