    So I just switched from skiing to snowboarding. I have about 5-6 full days under my belt. Toe side fine can ride switch back and forth down but I CANNOT turn. More importantly I can’t even practice heel slide down the hill because I fall every time. Have all the protective gear but my head still...

    Trying to find the specs/reviews of this board. Though it looks twin / all mountain to me (would you agree?) It's a Santa Cruz 138 and looks like it says kg138 on the board. However, I could not find this board's specs anywhere online. Looking to buy a used twin / all mountain board as my first...

    So I have never snowboarded before. I used to ski quite a lot but this winter I've decided to give snowboarding a try. I discovered that it's basically cheaper to buy used equipment online than to rent a couple times. I found boots that fit great but I'm struggling with a board. Obviously I've...

    So I went snowboarding for the first time and was hooked. I knew I was going to be taking this up as a hobby so I decided to buy a board. I told the girl at the snowboard shop that I was in fact a total newbie (I had only taken a lesson & rode for maybe 2 hours after) I was doing a fair amount...

    Hey Everyone, I just got back from Canada and after shredding the powder over there it feels like I've been born again! So I thought I'd join all of you other snowboarding fans out there and contribute where/when I can! Sidenote: The snow is Australia is so bad it's not even worth mentioning...

    So I've snowboarded three times last season and fell in love though I'm not that great at it. My legs always felt awkward and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't seem to maneuver quite right. After learning about bindings, boards, and equipment on the forums. I realized something about the...

  11. Bindings
    Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a while and it's been great hearing everyone's opinions. I was hoping if I could get some advice on my bindings set up. I'm 5' 11", 170lbs, size 10 shoe... riding a K2 Raygun with Burton Cartel 2013 bindings. Before I go injuring myself, I was wondering if...
  12. Bindings
    This may seem like a very basic question but i've heard that you need to make your highbacks parallel to the heel edge of your board? There are no real board shops near me and some people tell me i should and some people tell me i shouldn't, i'm a newb and i dont really know anyone who boards so...
