wtf?

No. Wrathfuldeity answered and I read it. I didn't ignore him, and acknowledged that he answered it in a recent comment. The thread took off with dumb comments about "flat basing isn't snowboarding" and I argued THOSE comments a little in the beginning, using boarder cross as one example.

I didn't ask it in another thread. You got confused and then gave me shit for ignoring an answer you never gave because you mixed up your threads. And your comment about using a box didn't come until AFTER all that. And I haven't even said anything since that part.

As instructors, I realize we need to dumb it down for the general public but we also use this subforum to discuss topics at an instructor level. But since I dont ever help anyone here, I can go now and stop wasting my time trying to help folks improve their riding ....
I don't think anyone is saying you never help anyone. You've been very helpful. In general though this thread was a shit show, and there was plenty of fighting. Not from you. Except this comment where you call me out, I don't know what that is for really.

I did briefly question one comment by you saying boarder cross has no flat basing and only carving, which I did in a respectful way, and acknowledged your expertise. Which was kinda besides the point anyway, I was just finding legitimate examples because some posters, and even you at one time, said it should never be done (but you since cleared that up).

And regarding dumbing things down...I don't know who you think is on the other end of these keyboards, but you might be surprised at our ability to digest 6th grade physics, among other things

Spring comes along and ruins our snow and makes everyone PMS I guess.

We have 3 of these flat basing threads going at the moment and I already stated how to maintain a flat base using jibbing a box as an example.

I'm not trying to bust your balls .. I said about 3 decent posts ... it was an exaggeration. Not saying there isn't good advice here. I was just jokin around

P.S. I agreed with your advice more or less

Why is this thread continuing? Has it not served it's purpose? Seems like a waste of argument between members and mod over something pretty stupid.

Technically, one cannot truly freebase, because complete combustion is impossible to achieve in all but perfect conditions. The result will be byproducts such as carbon and various oxides.

In hindsight, if we took these discussions to an actual hill ... we would probably be the biggest gapers in the world ..

"I'm flat basing"

"No your not, that was totally 174 yoctonewtons of force applied to your toe edge"

Not that I am against them or anything
