Be honest. It’s the smirk in my avatar that has you so hellbent on disagreeing with my every post, isn’t it? You should know that the image isn’t really me. It’s just a silly picture from an old SNL skit that I fully admit wasn’t that funny back in the 80s. In real life I’m an open minded bro who pursues a handful of hobbies with a lot of zeal. I do a lot of trial and error stuff. I like to build things and modify things. I’ll gladly give up pretty much any conclusion I’ve come to about boards, prep, or riding if persuaded with some evidence or even the right kind of passion. I’ve personally followed a bunch of dead ends. I’ve regrouped my thoughts many times. I’m never done considering things. But at this point I feel pretty strongly that i know the diff between a carve board and a pow board and the virtues of a well prepped base. But I’m still open. Tell me what you’ve got. I really will listen. Right now it seems like you’re being contrarian. Got race experience. Drop some knowledge. I’m listening. Tell me how I should do prep if I wanted to win a gold medal in wet snow. I’m not interested in what’s “good enough.” No shade-throw intended. I’m looking for some next level shit, whether it’s snowboards, beer,, ski wax, cars, bikes, surfboards, cheese, beekeeping, kitchen knives, smokers and grills, dirt bikes, men’s dress shoes, etc. Thats what I’m interested in lately, roughly in order of most interested to least interested.Misquoting me is the only way that you can carry on your losing argument? I very clearly stated that I was talking about most/the vast majority of riders.
I was equally clear that you're welcome to do something different if you want to. But that does not invalidate the point.
