And no, I'm not sponsored by them, not nearly good enough for that. I just love the feel of their boards and want others to experience it too. TBT is not for everyone, but if you havn't tried it,...

Why no love for Bataleon?

I'm not nearly the most experienced, or have ridden the most boards. But between demo days and swapping boards with friends on the hill I think I have a decent view on how the different board...

I don't even bother with the brush, the texture it leaves will be gone after a run or two down the mountain. I just wax, scrape, then buff a bit with a scotchbrite pad. I wax about every 3 times I...

I have. It was one of the cheap plastic ones like the Demon lock someone posted. Dunno if they just yanked it or hit it with a hammer, their board, a ski boot, whatever. I came back to get my...

Moist is panties getting wet, damp is when they've been wet for too long without you taking them off. I think what you're talking about is after they've been damp, then pissed themselves in...

I always recommend Bataleon, but living in Ohio I know it's usually ice with a dusting of fake snow on top at Mad River and Snowtrails. Unless you ride mostly park I'd say get something with...

Bataleon Global Warmer or Whatever if you want something more playful for rails and jibs. Goliath or Evil Twin if you're mainly doing jumps. The raised edges will save your ass at least a few times...

It handles speed no problem, and is great on jumps, but the Goliath will be too. Mine is a 2011 so it has the extruded base and is a bit stiffer than the new ET, but it has held up great. I can...

I think the 154 Goliath will suit your wants perfect. I'd recommend the Riot if they still made it...But with the ET now having a sintered base I can see why they dropped that board. If you want...

To me it looks like the boarder was just trying to spray him for stopping mid run, then go around, but lost his edge and plowed into him instead. Total fail for both of them, but 100% the boarders...

Check out Bataleon boards, full camber with lifted edes at the tips. All the benefits of camber, plus harder to catch edges and faster turning edge to edge.

If you don't like them then you'll...

Bataleon Global Warmer. Although I do love Signal from their ETT videos and their general attitude and quality, but I've never actually ridden one of their boards.

That's the truth for sure. My only experience with real powder was a week at Jay Peak. It dumped the whole week before and the first few days we were there. I got stuck in the trees on one run,...

I have a Swix iron and use WAY higher temp than recommended. With the Swix wax, CH8 and CH6 I set it to about 120deg C, any higher and it starts to smoke a bit. But with the Hertel Super Hot Sauce,...

Not nearly as nice of a selection as most of you, but I don't need much variety for my local 300' vertical hill... I ride mostly park with some speed runs, trees, and carving thrown in.

Doesn't matter, you want the epoxy soaked INTO the crack, not on top of it. Wiping it off the top while it's still wet will actually help push it into the crack also. All you can do now is slice...
