Funny you mention that. I'm taking my GPS watch that I use for running to track my last outing on Sunday, and I'm uploading to Strava anyway lol. I guess I'll put it down as a "bike ride."

My best run of the season was when I linked turns for the first time! :D

Might be worth mentioning it took me longer than most, and it was a short season for me lol.

Re: How to prevent rusting in the binding screw inserts and on the screws?

I wouldn't say it's a major problem, then again I'm not sure what to expect. I just bought my first board and realized that it would rust eventually since it will get wet each time out.

I'm surprised no one has replied yet. Hello!

How long did you snowboard before your break?

And I'm really curious... is it like "riding a bike?" in the sense that you don't really forget?

Definitely thumbs up for these videos. They helped me learn the concepts after my first clueless day on the hill with no instruction.

Thanks for the input. I'll move each binding one insert closer to center to keep it even/centered relative to the sidecut.
