This is what I've been able to do with a Never Summer SL 155.

Your vid is exactly what i would like to do. What degree are your edges? Awesome riding man.
1 degree base, 1 degree side (sometimes they refer to it as 89 degrees out of 90). I'm tried 0/0, 2/2 and some combinations... and I've found 1/1 to be the best all-around for me.

Then grow a bigger belly.

jamesdthomas2 I am not having trouble on ice. I can go through just about any slope. But my goal is to get my belly as close to the snow a possible while carving the mountain. I figured sharper edges would fix this problem. I only detuned the tip and tail (not the entire effective edge). As far as magne-traction, I have not tried it. But my other two snowboard buddies have lib techs and they blaze down the mountain. Not sure that shape exits a carve the way the custom x (cambered) does though.

I always tune my boards myself but I think its worth taking to a professional to see what they can do. I live in the cheyenne, wy area. Anyone know of a good shop to take my board. Only place I have ever seen is a sports authority in our mall. Anyone know of a good place in Denver? I could always drop off and pick up later.

snowklinger did you detune the rails or just the tips thru the contact points?

You use the rails to ride, not the contact points - I wouldn't even trip.

Lamps Take it to a good shop, tell them you want it super sharp, it will be sharper than it was from the factory. No need to get new board.
