You definitely give up a lot of movement range - just try it at home without board.

IMO, most riders with a forward stance look very awkward during edge transitions, because they tend to bend at...

LTB PTeam

Yes, I'm in Europe (Alps). I blindly ordered online (very little info on the board). International shipping was actually free.

I'll compare the LTB PTeam to the Elan El Grande, the board I was...

LTB Big Twin 166XXW - 166cm with blunted nose/tail (the widest non-custom boards made).

After a couple of nasty boot outs with my previous setup, I stopped carving for a while...

Most people don't carve and use fairly low edge angles. Most people who do carve, only do shallow carves and don't use aggressive angles either (low g-force). In those conditions, a large amount of...

IMO, if you need more than 2 minutes with a plastic scraper, it's either dull (just sharpen with sandpaper or a file) or you are using too much wax (use a fiberlene cloth underneath the iron). I...

Armor up. You get insured more easily and heal slower than someone younger. IMO, crash pants, wrist / knee / elbow guards, helmet and back protector are really nice to have and will make falls on...

That definitely depends on the board. My LTB CRC board doesn't and is as stable as a camber board when flat based. The rocker section is pretty soft though; the camber sections are probably 3-4x...

I have a LTB board with a clear sintered base. The base is slightly milky, so the graphics is not as sharp as die cut lines would be, but still quite detailed.

Clear sintered ptex has been...

No, you don't. With clear ptex, a graphic can be printed underneath.

Anyway, I have an Elan board with die cut base and it's perfectly smooth with no detectable transition between base pieces. It...

Bumpy??? You are kidding, right?

Quite frankly, I would call that very well groomed and smooth.

Blue loctite makes at least some kinds of plastic brittle - so the disk may break.

That doesn't work. You can go quite fast in chop, if you don't turn the board sideways.

You want to make smooth turns, just slightly washing out the tail for speed control ('scarving'). Large...

You can't carve in powder, there is no edge to ride - you are riding the whole base.

Don't even try to carve, you will definitely slide out and crash. Deep powder requires much more deliberate...

It does with doppler-based speed measurements (0.5 mph accuracy is easily possible). E.g. for the tiny GT31 GPS logger with SIRF 3 chipset there is a test here:

How would you know?

Ski tracks is calculating speed based on position/distance measurements, which are way too inaccurate for skiing/snowboarding. For accurate speed data, a doppler effect based...

I wouldn't worry about it. Repairing it will be somewhat pointless. As soon as you hit some agressive/icy snow, the repair will soon be gone that close to the edge.

If you bother with a repair,...

If it's primarily when you are using the lift, you are probably rotating your body and putting pressure on the outside of your forefoot.

You definitely don't need any edge whatsoever. I don't have any problem doing a 180 with a completely flat board.

I usually sit down to strap in. If I'm facing the wrong way, I do a 180 to avoid...

I like a wide stance for powder. It's easier to shift the weight and throw the board around (e.g. when you have some windblown stuff or crust).

When there is good powder, I do use some setback (I...

Inspired by this thread, I've been doing some lift line slapping. It really works.

From time to time a little slap
will keep the snugglers off your back.

Great thread, Cass. :cheeky4:

Slush can be almost as nice as powder - if the snow is not too fresh. I hate fresh snow when it's warm - sticky mess until it had some time to transform.
