Grip tape sounds like a terrible idea to me unless you carry around a bottle of de-icer with you. There is a very good reason why they don't use it on snow skates. Snow gets packed in those small...

Oops I posted on the wrong user name. Solace11 is my fiancee's user name.

I'm not sure why you think Burton's bindings are inferior. Around here it seems like Burton bindings are some of the top...

I've been riding cambered boards for 9 years up until this season. I've only tried the v-rocker as far as the new profiles go which is on my Burton Hero. At this point I don't think I can do without...

EST bindings are for their EST boards. The bindings mount in a channel instead of the more traditional threaded holes in the board. If you see two long channels down the middle of the board than you...

I like mine and its my first true park board (so I don't have much to compare it to). My only other park board is the original Burton Se7en when it first came out which is a really stiff flex board...

I've been snowboarding for a while but I got my first real soft park board this season. I've been having fun with the v-rocker shape and soft flex until I hit the diamond slopes. This Burton Hero's...

I went Sunday and today (Monday) and they didn't slip at all. That extra one turn is all it took to my bindings firmly in place. I didn't touch them at all so no re-tightening on the hill. So it was...

Going snowboarding tonight, it will be nice and cold (for this area anyway). I bought a new screwdriver that may help. The dakine torque wrench with the sort of t-shaped handle. I got an extra 1 full...

13% body fat :D. Motocross and mountain biking keeps me in pretty good shape.

I actually bought this board at a swamp meet sort of thing at a local shop in September. The board was brand new but...

First of all, this is under my fiance's user name so I don't want to make it seem like he's the noob having all of these problems. But on to the trouble I've been having:

Well I did some research and it doesn't seem to be that common of an issue so I guess I'm just doing something wrong. My binding only slipped a little at a time, by the time I got down the slope it...

No kidding. I like the adjustability but I'll probably stick with the more traditional mounting system next time. I have the 155; I only weigh 147lbs and I'm 5'9" so I'd hope it can handle that. I...

I use blue thread lock on my hardware so it doesn't come loose. When I re-tighted them after I got down the slope they just did the same thing two runs later. I'm starting to worry its going to be a...

Burton EST problem
