Well maybe I'm crying over spilt milk, because the pics make it look really tame. But there's about a 10 cm x 2 cm section of board edge that has rotated upwards ever so slightly.
Lol, so I've decided I REALLY need to start building my own boards!!! I only really need one core shape, since I'll build all the boards around a 160 cm BX style core. RCR camber pattern. I'll build them for myself and if anybody wants to buy my crazy contraptions they can go for it! lol :yahoo:Hm, that is not how I normally adjust my side/base bevel...
Yeah as I look at the base, and the pics it doesn't look as bad as I originally though. I think I'm just bummed that after 20 days on it I've beat it hard enough to break SOMETHING.Bummer but not the end of the world.
It looks like a heel side skidded turn has hit something just behind the edge tines (obvious by the base damage) which has pushed the edge out and possibly up aswell, cant make it out in the pics.
I would straight edge it and mark it with a marker to see how much material will be lost if you file it back to straight, if its half or less file it back.
On another note is there a thread on these boards somewhere? I would like to hear your impressions.
Real logic and truth here. Don't feel bad I shark finned a brand new swallowtail yesterday 5 minutes after getting off the lift. Board now has a 2 inch section of sidewall and base mangled and I'm pretty sure I was the first person to ride it.It's not the cost of buying an expensive board, it's the fact that you need to be prepared to replace it because you busted it or got it stolen etc. unfortunately for aggressive riders snowboards are like gas, you buy em you use them up, you buy more.
It's either that or stay on the trails. Look at it this way, you've now got the hottest rock board around.
Fortunately for you, the bamfb2 household is currently accepting donations. Let me know when you get a new one, and I will PM you the address. Don't worry, will pay for shipping. It's for a good cause....and it should have a lot of life left in it.
Time to suck it up and order another! lol :eusa_clap:
Yeah, about $1250 actually... And it was one of the cheaper options I was looking at for the group buy. :blink:You paid $1200 for that board??? :icon_scratch:
You know the funny thing is I have never got rid of a board. I still have ALL of them! Should probably mount them on the wall one of these days. Bronzed or something!Fortunately for you, the bamfb2 household is currently accepting donations. Let me know when you get a new one, and I will PM you the address. Don't worry, will pay for shipping.

I only break things at Lake Louise. I've chewed through a couple boards there this year apparently! None of the other hills I go to seem to inflict even half as much damage. Well they don't call them the rocky mountains because they're all snow covered meadows... :dizzy:That sucks. I haven't damaged any of the rental demos yet, but as soon as I get my own I bet then I'll start breaking stuff!
The rocks I broke it on were Eagle ridge 7. Back side between paradise chair and top of the world... It's a fun run but there are better runs there!Where at lake louise are these cliffs? On the south mountain?
Yup yup thread from the dead! I'm still going to ride the shit out of this board this year. I'm willing to bet it will last a few years yet.I seem to trash my boards pretty quicky (Then again.. I don't pay 1200 bucks for them! )
My Evo is completely thrashed, but it'll work another year.
I broke my Supermodel last year too.. got a newer one cheap though!
Damnit, this thread is old dude!
