the wood is already saturated in epoxy, so unless you get a deep gouge in which you see dry/splinted fibers, don't waste your time filling

he does come off as an asshole, but, when you get past the insults, he usually has a decent argument...he's just pretty low-class and has no tact. Fact is, though, in the 10 years I've been reading...

good for you. I've found the muscle atrophy from immobilization is just as hard to deal with as the original injury...those muscles just don't want to come back.

Speaking of which, the atrophy in...

Not usually a big fan of Burton, but a few of their products are damn good...including the current cartels. When I picked them up, I was surprised how much lighter they are than other brands (my...

like you said, it's a compromise...just like every board tech. Not every base contour is going to be perfect for all conditions.

More often than not, the raised edges will probably save you on...

I didn't like BOA either...no digging on mine, but having two giant protrusions sticking out on each boot was annoying (I'm satisfied with Salomon's lacing system anyway).

I tried OTG (over the glasses) goggles and hated them because they were so ridiculously huge. Contact lenses let me wear a normal size goggle.

I agree - you don't need a tiny board to be able to spin 1s and 3s or butters...what matters more is the size of bump/jump you're going off and your speed. I'm exactly the same height/weight as you...

of those two, I'd definitely go with the GNU...and, at $200, that's a good bargain.

Not enough info on the Fat Bastard board, so I'd stay away.
