  1. Quiver Expansion Questions

    Hi all! Thinking about adding a new board to the quiver and not much opportunity to demo stuff so have to mostly rely on research and suggestions. I've been splitting time between a Hovercraft for powder and a Lib Tech TRS for everything else for some time now. Feeling like I've hit my limit...
  2. How much POW before you think about setting your stance back?

    Snowboarding General Chat
    I am in my second season of snowboarding and I am a little confused on when to set back my snowboard stance. Specifically how much powder would there need to be before you would consider this? I get the board and the type of snow would likely influence this decision. I would imagine 3 to 4...

    Snowboarding General Chat
    Hi guys in a couple weeks I'm off to Japan to spend a week on the slopes and i was wondering about the differences of riding deep snow compared to standard main run stuff. I am a beginner, I've only had a couple of days with a board, so any advice will be much appreciated.
  4. Burton Mystery Malolo vs Lib Tech Orca

    First of all this is a comparison based on opportunity. I am searching for a powder board for coming trip to Japan (January 2020). I have a Burton Deep thinker which is my fall back plan if I don't find a better board. I like the deep thinker in groomer but I havn't tried it in deep powder and...

  8. Help! Did I buy my first powder board too long?

    Aloha shredders! I bought my first-ever, exclusively pow board. Burton Day Trader with Lexa bindings. Long story short, I thought I was buying a 145 but it turned out to be a 150. There was a "spec sheet" covering the length, and the shop manager told me it was 145 and the PERFECT size for me...
  9. Directional Aggressive all-mt/Freeride boards

    Currently have a 163 custom flying v and a 162 rome blur. I absolutely love my blur for carving groomers and just charging the mountain in general, but doesn't seem to float as easily in good amounts of powder even though its a "fusion camber" (seems just about traditional camber too me). So I...

    Buy and Sell Snowboard Equipment
    Hi, I bought a Rossignol XV 159 in April 2017 to take with me on a trip to Whistler. I was looking for something a bit less stiff than my Flagship. The board absolutely crushed it and charges hard. Floated in powder and carved better than my Flagship. However, it was still a bit too stiff. I...
  14. Help in change of board for powder and more

    I've been riding for 8 years on a K2 Darkstar 157 (2008). I like fast carving and have experimented with powder. But I also like the flexibility in the K2, but wanted to step it up and also find a board that rides better in powder. I guess I'm in between freeride and all mountain, but doesn't...

  17. Park board in Pow

    So I'm from Michigan, going to college in Steamboat, CO. In Michigan, park is all there is to do, so I have a Ride Crook. Steamboat gets dumped on, so I'm looking forward to mad pow, brah. I know I should invest in a powder board, but I just can't spend that kind of money. I figure if I set my...
