'Just a little'. I don't know the angle but it's 1 or 2 'notches' forward (Contact Pros). It doesn't make much difference to carving for me but makes edge transition much more snappy and makes the...

Those edges! It won't be the root of your problem but I'd definitely file that rust off :grin:

Are you sure you're not too heavy for your board? It's a tell tale sign for me that I'm too heavy for...

A. Don't buy used boots (you might as well hire if you're going to do that).

B. Always do your best to try boots in a shop, unless you've had boots from the same company before and are confident...

Does it start chattering a lot at high speed and do you find you skid too easily when you turn? If so, you might be a bit heavy for the board.

Length and recommended weight increase together but...

Stepchild Stereotype? I have the 13/14 version and it's a complete bend-fest and catch free, to the point where I can more or less spin on the spot. Reverse camber.

The 15/16 version is...

I used to have exactly the same, in my right quad (rear leg). It's because I wasn't relaxed at speed and sort of trying to lean back to protect myself. After a few runs leaning on my back leg it...

The huge one in Edinburgh is Hillend. It looks like some giant uravelled a huge roll of carpet down the hill :grin:

Decent board but as above, I'd consider going smaller due to your weight.

140lbs is the bottom end for 159 on the size chart so it might be a better choice to go with 156 if you want something a...

3/4 inch is fine. As long as your boots are centred (equal overhang on toes and heels) you shouldn't have issues. You can tell straight away if things aren't right because you'll get excess overhang...

Can't comment on the forces but I've been riding Contact Pros on a noodle this year.

They have a smaller mounting disk so less contact with the board, which seems to allow the foot beds to flex...

I've been riding Ride Beta Movement bindings for years now.

They are just comfortable and tight. Never had any binding issues. Padded footbed and rubber base so they are easy on the board if you...

Just for some more statistics: I'm 5'8 with size 10 boots and I ride a 154 regular park board.

Strange to see a 152 is way too big for you. I'm 5'8 and ride a 154 board. That feels pretty spot on. It might be because the Custom is an all mountain board. Park boards tend to be a bit lighter and...

Jurassic 5, Outkast, The Pharcyde etc. etc.

One of the stand outs is the Brixton Flavour remix of 'Passin' me By' by The Pharcyde. It's usually my first run...

I got sick of my moustache bandana slipping off my mouth so I went to an army surplus store and bought a balaclava with just eye holes. I look a bit like a rogue sniper who's lost his rifle when I...
