Okay. Looks like I found our next home now, too. For the record: I never felt like the gear whoring had much to do with "fashion" shit - and there was tons of info over the years (EL 1.0 hosted by...

I also ride in the WA Cascades. I've been on a BSOD for the last two seasons. It's a great board for the conditions out here. I don't find the grip twitchy, nor do I find the board unstable. It's...

The length issue is more prevalent for me than it might be for others. I'm pretty tall.

I've got a buddy who swears by his Hestra trigger finger mitts. He absolutely loves them. I don't care for gauntlet mitts, so I'm using Celtek Radar mitts. Good luck so far, although I know that some...

My issue with the Arcteryx fit is more about length than volume. I'm pretty tough on gear, but I've had pretty good performance from the Airblaster, Burton, and Volcom pieces that I've tried.

I like my airblaster stuff. It's fun and playful - just like snowboarding.

When I ride in the side/back country, I don't sleep in snow caves or live in my gear. That's not my scene at this point....

Is any of this aimed at me?

I'm not the one who started riding two years ago. I started riding almost 27 years ago. There were some breaks in there, and I may not have a lifestyle that allows me...

I used to use a goodwill-found iron, but switched to a purpose-specific iron a couple of years ago. For me, it was worth it. I feel like I can get a cleaner, smoother finish on the wax, which lets me...

I am not a fanboy. In the interest of full disclosure, this is what I posted on EL in regards to why I decided to be more active on SBF:

Because of your affection for speed and carving, I'd stay away from pure rocker boards. A straight camber board is better for that (tracks more easily at speed, edge locks into a carve more firmly,...

Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be a snowboarder. Too much fanboy bullshit in this thread, and not enough actual info for the OP. Sad.

"Sucks" isn't very informative, and it's also very subjective. If you don't like the toestraps, or feel that Unions have too little baseplate padding, why not just say that?

I have ridden the Odin. It is no joke!

Did anybody recommend the Unity Whale or Bataleon Camel Toe yet? Both look super intriguing!

It IS simple. All of the diarrhea of hate and brand loyalty is bunch of bullshit. I didn't buy into the Sims vs Burton crap 20 years ago, and I don't buy into whatever the new-school equivalent is.
