99% of snowboarders have no fucking clue what they are doing.
Change my mind.
Where you at?I just sold mine.
Another activity I will never do again.
snowboardersall my fellow idiots at ski hills have no fucking clue what they are doing.
Why would anyone ski or snowboard not on powder?I think since then I am n-5. Haven’t really ridden much in a few years. Hopefully the new knee will alleviate some pain. Skiing absolutely destroys my knees, snowboard in powder, not so much.
because east coast? same as rox.Why would anyone ski or snowboard not on powder?
sooooo...my takeaway from all this is that we should be on the lookout for a fiberglas ransom in 2021, no?YEAH! Snowboarding is the worst!
Nice quiver @rideit ! I’ve never taken a pic of all my boards together... I don’t really even know how many there are upstairs... So I thought I would take up board building.
It’s funny how many photos there are of me in the Scott catalogs in full ski gear when I’ve only skied once and I’ve been a snowboard bum every winter with a seasons pass since 1996.

I learned how to make all the tooling, molds, etc and made 3 powder boards from scratch last winter. It was a glorious experience.

I vacuum bagged over a heated camber mold made of strips of mdf wood, a heating blanket at skinned in a 3mm sheet of aluminum.

The first one on the left rode surprisingly well so I thought I would add a bunch of carbon and totally ruin it, haha. The second one on the right was way too stiff and chattery with all that carbon. I learned that fiberglass is an incredible material and needs more respect.

This is one of our favorite lift accessed couloirs. Switzerland has incredible lift access.

Anyways, Snowboarding is the worst!
Haha... I did try and get them to think about it. I didn’t gain much traction. It could dampen the ride....maybe... Talking about damp rides... I just asked a friend to make me a (@toodles Enduro Seat Toob Angled) steel front end to bolt a carbon Gambler rear end. It might be fun due to unsprung weight theories and chassis flex ideas.sooooo...my takeaway from all this is that we should be on the lookout for a fiberglas ransom in 2021, no?
You ride chairlifts?
well, that’s your problem there, sonny
So how do you ride downhill on a proper DH bike then?Few things embody why I despise "mountain culture" more than this statement. I can't think of any other situation where I could find myself in close quarters with people who I would like to stab in neck more than a gondola. And why I will never spend a cent to ride one until I get to the point where I need a bunch of cunts in close quarters who need stabbing in the neck.
I don't. As much as folks like to think DH is the rugged blue collar corner of mountain biking it is pretty much the same crowd. Not a lot of rags to World Cup DH riches stories out there.So how do you ride downhill on a proper DH bike then?
I'm in Minnesota.Where you at?
Was just looking at a job in bozo town.
Was actually thinking I'd buy passes again at bridger, which I got excited about.
Then I looked at housing prices in bozo town.
Montana, Minnesota, Madagascar whatever.
The truth is his avatar looks roughly like montana rider's at a quick peripheral shitty glance on a phone. I do that shit all the time....associate people with a general impression of their avatar and then don't actually look at the name.Jesus, you really have taken some headshots eh?
For me it is dates, at least in the past. I can figure out my future appointments but I can't tell you the difference between 2016 and 2006.
