Custom made board, can't remember who made it, it's 5 or so years old (picked it up second hand). The original owner had tiny feet so it was built to suit. I haven't been on it in two years, I rarely go out with carvers anymore, it's a dying breed, so I just stick to my FR board and still have lots of fun.

a dying breed indeed. I got one of the last boards burton ever made and that was a few years ago, same with teh boots and bindings. Nothing beats the feel of speed and carving low to the ground

Yeah, every time I try to assemble a carving group, everyone bails and ends up riding their soft board. I haven't been motivated enough to go out on my own either.

Nothing? Watch from 5:15-the end. ahhhhhhh.. I think that would feel pretty awesome! --->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KK5k1wM_XE

Just playin around man, I've never tried an alpine board before. Looks pretty awesome I have to say and thats cool that you're stickin' to it. Keep it alive.

btw anyone into snowboarding, watch the full "forum or against em" video. I loved it. Jakes part at the end is just awesome. (youtube vid)

If you pick up enough speed and turn hard enough that your boots go into the snow you will wipeout.

I went with the K2 Zeppelin .. love my board.
Listen to this man......and me.

Do the 30 day thing and get a wider board......

I had the same problem, it wasn't worth trying to ride it. Even carving normally was a pain in the ass.

I certainly did not get lessons. What should I have done, or what did I do wrong?

Not get lessons. Trust me, it's money well spent. CASI trained snowboard instructors know all the tricks/hints/tips to get anyone started properly. Sounds like you did the classic "forcing" turn (ie counter-rotation) that 99.99% of self-taught riders do. Very easy to catch an edge and hurt yourself, it sucks that you had to find out first hand though.

well there were two things wrong, the boots didnt fit the bindings and weren't really comfortable as they were heavy and bulky. secondly the bindings itself werent of good choice since they had no adjustable heel cup.

so i got ride s bindings
http://www.sportmart.ca/store/images...05800_53lg.jpg

and sims sage boots
http://www.sportmart.ca/store/images...33484_83lg.jpg

feels a lot better. as for the board, its a lil less over hand with this setup and they dont have any wider board. the widest board is the morrow source and its only 5mm wider than this one :S but $100 more and thats over my budget

definitely, he needs a wider board

yeah, whereas I went last time with a bunch of people and didn't have the time to seek lessons out individually, I will next time. So the board catching when I was trying to stop frontside and whipping my knee around can be prevented? Good to know, all that happened when I tried was I kept going sideways and I kinda forced it to turn. I need to get a cool knee brace, I have afeeling it could buckle randomly next time I try snowboarding even if I don't wipe out
