well the cart allows for international economy shipping worth $87 so it's allowed. i'll prolly get shafted with taxes and customs shit though... but $255 after everything is still pretty damn good.

ill check out local boardshops to see if they have this...

presses and butters are good learned on a stiffer board, not a super stiff board, but something stiffer than a jib board that's for sure.

take the beating, and learn when it's applicable to press.

reverse camber boards are cheater boards when it comes to presses and butters. Nothing wrong with that, but if you take a regular camber board, or a hybrid camber board and pressed that, it's a lot tougher.

it's really all about balance and where to apply it.

jib boards have no torsional stiffness, so they won't hold an edge worth sh!t. makes high speed edge holding crappy. You'll haul ass in a straight line, but when you want to tip the board on edge, you'll find that it won't even go in the direction you want.

Look at board construction, as there is a few different types of laminating to stiffen the core.

biaxial, triaxial, quadaxial, and a combination of each of those with carbon stringers or carbon sheets tossed into the mix. Carbon is used to increase snap/pop/kinetic springing action.

Another thing to consider is edge detuning. Bevel the base edge of the board to allow the board to be less prone to edge catching, this helps for rails and boxes as well, less susceptible to hang ups and catching.

and then it's all a matter of foot/leg/body pressure. once you know how a board flexes you can butter spin all the way down a hill if you wanna.

Then proper butters can lead to flat ground flips, and compression spins, and eventually you can butter revert spin off of a table. those are fun.

of course i will.

Just let me know ahead of time so i can call up to reserve a day ticket.

I'll probably roll out most monday evenings for the womens free day, and maybe some other weekday night just to mix things up.

Saturday or sundays i will be up at grouse, and every other time i'll probably be at cypress.

it will be the black mountain side with the focus on fork, and PGS, the run that mates to fork

they've done a LOT of off season ground grooming, so they have a small small base of about 20-30 cm's.

it's going to be fun, and will be good to snowboard the earliest in a bunch of years, but i want to wait till there's more snow. Wtih the forecast the way it is, I'd rather wait till friday.

Anyone going up tomorrow?? Only $24 and 20% off with the gold medal card. Everyone I know is going to be working tomorrow, so I might hit up Cypress myself for a few hours. Anyone else want to join me?

Anybody recommend a somewhat affordable set of goggles? Like $80 +/- $20?

I have a cheap pair but never ended up using it much coz I found it totally washed out the snow and I couldn't see the terrain/dips/contours where I was riding. Are more expensive ones better for this?

Is there anything I should look out for in particular?

you want dragons?

Maybe the rogues?

Contours of the snow is attributed to lens color, not so much the lens shape itself. you can get away with flat lens but for optical clarity you'd want convex for sure.

I've had convex goggs, but i've always resorted back to my flat lens goggs because, i really don't care. but I think this year i might go with the dragon APX's

^ For mostly daytime riding at Cypress/Whistler, what lens colour do you recommend?

What kind of benefits for optical clarity does convex have? Less glare?

follow this chart, I'm not the right person to ask....i'm usually more concerned about how things look than how things function. I'll wear black chromed goggles in the fog, because I don't want people seeing my eyes.

All the stores on 4th are having sales. You might want to go in person to make sure they fit properly

I was looking for night riding goggles so I went this past weekend and tried on a lot of different ones. I ended up buying an oakley crowbar for $83 after tax.

FYI

two of us are heading up tomorrow to ride for a few hours, and film and make an edit of our first day out.

Send me a message if you want to meet up.
