Default Therapy for the Soul

Hey,
Name is Mike

Just getting back into boarding from 2 back surgeries and 2 legs surgeries, so I am a bit rusty (well more than a bit). Been about 4 years since I boarded last.

Been Boarding since '89. Still have my 1993 Burton Craig Kelly (CK93) and it still performs awesome on the slopes. Definitely an old school boarder. Still believe Craig Kelly is the greatest boarder ever! I remember seeing him when he was still competing. Totally amazed!

I live in Colorado Springs and have season pass for Keystone and A. Basin--So I guess I will mainly be at one of those, but want to visit others as well.

Have already been up to Keystone a few times and loved it. We just need MORE SNOW!

Not used to this whole rocker/camber hybrid thing. I mainly ride on camber boards. Trying to ease into it with my Lib Tech. The Hybrids just don't feel right to me.

Most of the time I just like to sit back and take it all in while I surf down the mountain. Definitely the best therapy you can get.

Boards I have:
Burton, Custom X 164
Lib Tech, Hot Knife 159
Burton, Craig Kelly 161
Ride, Havoc 159
Wild Duck 159

Looking forward to some good reads on here.

Welcome to the forum!

Gotta agree, taking a mellow run while looking at the scenery takes me to my happy place.

About riding a rocker/camber board, they like to be on edge in a carve. When going straight, stay forward slightly to engage the camber in the nose. Keeps the rocker from wanting to act pivoty.

The rocker between the feet shows it's advantage when doing short, quick turns and, of course, being in powder.
