Default board chatter

I ride a carbon credit.
When I go at high speeds my board chatters a lot and it makes me scared I'm going to catch an edge and wipe out.
Do you think the problem is the board? or just my fear of going fast?

It's a symptom of rocker boards. Without increased dampening tech typically found in higher end boards the tips will chatter like crazy. The carbon credit is your run of the mill basic rocker.

The good news is that the chattering wont make you catch an edge per say (thats down to you ).

Focusing on where you have the pressure on the board can make a difference - if your weight is back it will help he nose chatter. So focus on seeing if you can quiet the board while you ride - it will make you a better rider.

But ultimately some boards are just going to do this. You'll get used to it probably.

I had one when I bought into the rocker craze, and noticed the same thing. Those boards love to carve so just carve the shit out of it and that will eliminate a lot of the chatter.

Or, buy a used C2 board.

Put a set of Now IPO bindings on it, makes a huge difference in reducing the chatter feeling. I can't and won't go back to regular bindings now for that very reason.

So today at stevens, there was some pretty nice pow.

My board kept getting stuck in the snow and chatter was still a huge problem

So is it my riding that is sucking or the board?
