    w00t

    Atomic Hatchet 159"
    K2 CLicker boots and bindings.

    I'm getting a new set of bindings soon. Looking at the HB clickers instead of the Plasma or Magma flats.

    I have a pair of clickers right now... I dont like them because they dnt offer enough controll... but its all preference... what kind of riding do you like?

    Mostly freeriding and a little rail now and then....mostly hitting jumps and the like. We dont ahve any natural mountains out here, but the Belgians built an indoor snowpark not far from my apartment. I'll try to upload a video so you can get the idea.

    O thats cool... im more of an allaround type of rider.. i like the jumps and am ok at rails, but my true passion is in powder and trail riding... its so much fun to ride through the trees and know that if you fall you are gona be hiking out for an hour or two...

    Free riding is fun, but in my opinion the park is where it's at. I can't wait for the season to start already. I'm getting impatient.

    In another two weeks I'm going to the ski and snowboard show in Toronto. Going to pick up some new bindings. My old ones are shit and my boots are a little too big for them. I want to get some FLOW bindings. Some of my buddies and I are also looking into a week long all incluse trip to Tremblant this winter....basically just riding and drinking...and riding...then drinking.

    Im out here in Utah and the boarding is bad ass. Best snow in the world, err atleast thats what our license plates say, but its pretty good snow. I bought a Lib Tech 161 W last year and only could go a few times so I'm stoked on going this season. I would never go with click ins/step ins, horrible design and they are a pain in the ass. Get some ratchets by Ride or Burton.

    yea season starts at the end of november here. i have 2 set ups. a never summer Evo 2 154 with ride spi's
    and a ride nation 155 with drake matrix bindings. then i have apx 5 boots.

    my neversummer setup is all park and my ride is park/freeride. since i have free baord check with my VP pass i always bring both up and just use whatever im feeling that day.

    i also have a vintage board that i have had ever since i was really little( i started snowboarding since 1990) my uncle who started snowboarding in the early 80's gave me a 1986 burton cruiser 165 back a few years ago. its freakin awesome, so oldschool it has one piece plastic bindings, has a swallow tail in the back and a huge wide upturned pointy nose

    Man, I can't wait for the season to start. Too bad I won't have very much free time this winter though. I'll be lucky if I manage 2-3 days.

    I have been boarding for about 11 years, my dad started and i enjoy it but i still enjoy skiing better. Its good to get out and ride a board everyonce and again though. The carving on a board is quite exhilarating. I need to work on my switch riding though. When i ride i usually ride my dads 02 Rossi something.

    I used to switch back and forth all the time. Then I fell...then I had a concussion and a bad back...then I didn't snowboard for about 3 years. I ride Goofy for the most part and I forgot how to carve back. Lets just say I didn't look to graceful going down the hill for the first couple of times last year. And, I can't ride switch anymore. Which sucks. Because last year I did a 540, landed it then couldn't do anything and bailed because I couldn't carve, or do anything.

    Dude, I've had a Lib Tech Pacifier 163 for four seasons - its the most awesome board on earth. Mine's looking a bit rough tho - epoxy & ptec everywhere; but its still holding together. I've also got a rossignol hunk-o-crap that I taped the edges on and use on the trampoline... and I picked-up a endeavour 158.5 a month ago; its got a full-layer carbon-fibre sheet and is fuckin' stiffer than a morning hard-on.

    k - about step-ins: the local runs around here have, like, 350 feet of vert (*barf*). When you ride the lift 40-50 times a day, step-ins are essential (and not just 'cause of my sopping wet ass). I've got Burton Mission step-ins - there's some movement side-to-side, but back-to-front's firm, and its gotta be -20 (celcius, eh?) before they freeze-up. That said, I've got my name on a pair of the new Fusion bindings (backordered... FUCK!) - $500; they're a hybrid rachet-stepin, you use a normal boot, and most of the binding (bottom, straps & back) comes away when you step out - they supposed to be awesome.

    Awww... I used to be a real strapped-in freak; I had a pair of Bent Metal bindings, really stiff 32's and prolly would have screwed my feet to the board if I could of. Now, unless I'm in the pipe, or its frozen crud, the step-ins don't bother me B)

    To tell the truth, I gained alot more control when I went 0-0 on the bindings (used to be 12-9), then any control that I lost when I went to step-ins.
