ahahah speaking of helmets, get a good one!


I remember, I was in gr 6 or 7 or something and I was getting a new helmet for my bday. I wanted the plastic Carrera one, cuz I had just gotten my first alpine board, and my dad said "no way, you're getting this one" and it was the same carrera model, but in Carbon Fiber hahaha he siad if i hit a tree going as fast as i normally do CF would be better than plastic, obviously neither could do shit, but still hahah

Really? You think so? I've been skiing 7 years before i started to snowboard, and right now it's about my 12th year snowboarding(mind you, i dont do it nearly as much as i used to )...been part of a few freestyle events snowboarding in high school, but i would have to disagree with you there.

I think it's personal preference, and you'll naturally be better at "stopping faster, turning better, and having more control" at the sport you enjoy most. I think with practice, this doesnt apply. That's my 2 cents anyways..I beleive it's different for everyone.

Good luck with it Crusher, you'll love it!...next try wakeboarding, you'll love it even more.

I took a couple lessons after I came back at MSL and before I got the snowboard. What you read was my first time.

Hey guys.. got some cheap board from boardzone but my boots are size 11 so they stick out 2 inc infront. See pic. Will this be a problem for me? The guy I bought this from didn't say anything about the boot size since we mounted it on the board/binding.

Board: Solo Fortune 156cm
Bindings: LTD LT5
$230 bucks

like he said ^^ looks like your good to go. as long as your bindings/boots (toes and heel) are more or less centered to the board, i.e. your toes dont stick out more than your heels too much, if it's a little i wouldn't worrie about it...

Wow.

FYI you are not supposed to touch the ground with your body.

Jeff: Over hand like that is not good. Try to center the boots on the board a bit more. Generally, 1" is the "limit" that people like to run. Also, once you progress, you can get (or make) some riser plates to lift the bindings off the boards, so that in turn you wont' get as much boot drag.

Thanks... i will level the bindings later when I get home.. I can probably get away with 1" on both sides.
