With about a foot of fresh snowfall, yesterday was my first powder. Everyone always talk about being stoked on pow but i don't really get it because i was an awkward mess. Sadly, the good thing about it was the falling down on painless snow.
The board was twitchy laterally like there was a bowling ball under it and i am not getting enough speed no matter how i point the nose down and once i fall it was hard to gain that momentum and composure to control the board.
My setup is 15/-15', 23" stance, medium flex flat camber twin board 54". I am 5'7" at 165lbs.
