broke 2 snowboards in 1 season...

Last weekend was a bummer, I destroyed another board in a year =(

I got the Capita Defenders of Awesome earlier in the season, broke it within 3 months for falling too nose heavy jumping off a 3 meter rock.

Then the GNU Park Pickle got owned last weekend when I tried a tamedog and didn't rotate enough, tail dug into the snow while I kept rolling forward.

... Last season I broke a Ride Machete from bonking against metal too hard... The year before I broke a K2 WWW from simply doing a tail press...

FML I don't deserve nice things and I am gonna stick to used boards forever now.

Shit happens when you get too gnarly for your own good.

you need to learn to stomp shit better. BOLTS HOMIE!

tamedogs are pretty lame and a board breaking trick.

how much do you weigh? just offhand i'd say try a NS... they are objectively more durable than Libs and alot of others... that said if you keep landing on your nose and tail you should expect to keep breaking shit.

I consider it a good season if I only break 2 boards hah. Although I also haven't actually payed for a board in about 4-5 years and even then I was able to get pro-form.

i don't have the right to consider tamedogs lame or cool until I master them =( It's just frustrating since I've been trying it for a long time and still can't get it down. Since spring slush is the best time to practice it I think I'm still gonna keep trying... hopefully my last board will not see anything horrible in the last 3 weeks.

I weigh 165 lbs, usually ride 154-156cm but the pick was 150cm, that could be reason why it broke. I heard NS boards are more durable but like you said, it's because I'm trying stupid shit and also not stomping them that's breaking my boards... If I keep doing them then I'll probably keep breaking stuff =/

Well,.. You could always save a "Good Board" to ride for when you're not doing anything too reckless!



...or is that your every day style?!
