remember, when you fall on a skateboard, you're not landing on snow....
That. Buy protections BEFORE you get hurt.

Waddaya think? I don't want to Hijack the OP's thread here!
Check if there's already one first in the Off Season Recreation section. If not, do it. Launch the thread.

I'll add to it this summer when/if I get my own super-awesome-mega Freeboard!

True, but WE don't all eat silverfish! We need one here on Snowboarding Forum, since snowboarding was where the Freeboard concept came from in the first place.

I'm still stuck between the "Freebord black bamboo pro series package" or the "2013 Landyatchz Rotor longboard". Still waying the pros and cons

Since Calgary is the land of neverending dry pavement....standby for results. Using one of my old longboards and a few castorwheels with inline skate wheels/berrings i will have one up and running after midterms...a crude demo to give it a whirl.

I don't think it's so much of a "does the design work" question, but more of a "terrain availability/convenience" question. I know I can find a hill, but how many runs am I willing do to on a descent hill when I have to walk back up. My main reason for grabbing either board is to get my switch riding locked in for next season. Freeboarding is very intriguing to me because the edge awareness mimics snowboarding, but...

So there is already a Freeboarding thread here? Sounds like you found one. (I was just saying to check just in case.)

No,.. or I don't know! Still haven't looked. Just saying I didn't even think of that! Not a very sharp tool sometimes! Generally just a "tool!"
