Demo if you can, I know Burton does demo days at Blue, or if you timed your western Canada trip right they're out here a lot too. Try the diodes, I think you'll find they're plenty responsive, but MUCH more comfortable than the C60s.

I used to ride a Burton T6 and then a T7 at blue mountain all the time. It was heavily cambered and very stiff. Great for groomer bombing! Now out here, I prefer an RCR profile, or simply camber with a lifted nose (ala Burton Landlord) for all terrains. I still like a mainly cambered deck, with a little nose rocker to make it easier on the back leg.

As far as your boots go, how many days do you have on them? I'm riding on 2009 Driver Xs with about 100 days on them now. So far so good. They still are VERY stiff so I'll wear them until they get softer than the second stiffest Burton boots.

Hey all,
I'm 23 and been snowboarding for a few years. I ride in the Northwest anywhere I can but I'll mostly be at Snoqualmie this year. I love to freeride and I'm trying to get more into park. My setup right now:

K2 Darkstar
Ride EX
32 Lashed

Anybody looking for someone to ride with at Snoqualmie this year hit me up!

I thought the same, I wear a size 12US after a 13 US boot and a 12 US boot never fitting.

This year I followed SnowboardAddiction.com advice and got a boot as tight as possible without hurting. Now wearing a 11 1/2 US boot. Wow after 6 days of snowboarding boots fit like a glove no heel movement.

Now mind you tight means not hurting, and every boot is different so go and try on your boots for the proper fit. Movement of your foot in your boots is a big no no.

Yeah you heard wrong. It's best to get snowboard boots that fit like hockey skates. They should be very snug without hurting badly. Once they break in they'll fit like a glove and feel amazing. If you can stop shipment or send them back, I think you'll be happier.

Is there nowhere to try boots on in Kosovo? You're much better going to a shop and trying on as many boots as you can, don't buy a certain model because of features, buy because it fits.

I'm 28, live in Cleveland, OH, and this is my second season.

Haven't left the OH/NY area, but have a trip planned to Snowbird/Alta in February...can't wait.

I love the park, even though I'm not great at it. Working on grabs off of big jumps and trying to ride switch.

My current setup:
Rome 2013 Agent Rocker 155
Union Force Bindings
Thirty-Two STW Boa Size 10
