Thanks for the review

A couple of questions/comments reagrding the review

How was the board different in regards the way you had to ride it?
What adjustements did you have to make you your riding style?
How was the control of the board different?

Quote:
I had a lot of trouble controlling the board just because it was so different
Why? Couldnt get an edge? Not having your body weight in the right position?

Quote:
I notice things are feeling a lot smoother that that first run. I'm able to control the board a lot better
How did you adjust your riding to gain more control?


Looking forward to trying my SL-R out when I hit the mountains

Thanks for the plug! To all of you considering a Never Summer this season, please do not delay. The factory is sold out and sizes, especially in the SL-R, are running low. Happy riding everyone and hope for more snow. We have 14 degrees in Portland with straight ice so we need some moisture. Thanks, Sarah at Daddies Board Shop

Thanks for the review, I would like to try out some kind of Reverse Camber board sometime this season to compare to TBT.

I've noticed how fast my SL-R is too. Is it due to the wax or to the design?

Hmm, the best way I can describe it is what BA said, you have to steer under your feet and not the tail. The way I was riding before I was using the tail of the board as a rudder almost (which is bad form I'm guessing). On my better runs I was steering under my feet and it carved great.

not sure about 'proper' form but as far as steering i know sometimes on groomers I use my front foot to press the board edge towards my turn, in other words twist the front of the board towards the side i am turing towards, then the boards feels like it's twisting between my feet and then the back of the board follows. is that what you mean by steer between your feet? I'll find out soon enough, but just curious.

Thanks for that, sounds like it's the board for me, ie it responds more to carving rather than sliding around yet still being playful.
Cant wait to try mine out

I agree with the other posters. Last year I was using my tail as a rudder for sure.
Unless I am speed checking, I dont use my back tail. I feel way more confident just charging on this board.
I completely agree with BA. . . Basically I feel that I can just jam my toes down into the snow (this doesn't actually happen, but that's the feeling) and the board holds right under there. Same feeling with the heels. From there the transition between the two is seemless, and that's why I feel so much more comfortable going SOOOOOO much faster than I did last year on my old board.

Following the above idea, as I push my toe edge into the ground, and the board digs in the board flexs really easily to match my crave line, and then when I come out of the carve transitioning into the next one, the board seems to slingshot out of the first turn into the second. I am sure all boards do this to a degree, but, damn I just feel it happens so easily on this board.

Do all the SL-R's for 09/10 have the neon green base?
