12/14/2010 1:08:52 PM Hey folks, I have two questions.  I am a beginning boarder. I don't go too fast and I don't ride park.  I am still learning and progressing (slowly, since I can only go once or twice year).  I am interested in an alternative camber board that is fun to ride all mountain, but can be taken to the park.  One that can butter, etc., but can carve like a cambered board.  I am thinking a Mervin board, i.e. Gnu or Lib Tech, but will consider others like the Reverse Crew or a Battaleon, whatever.  I need a wide board, since I wear a size 12 boot (260 mm waist width and my toes still peek out over the edge).  Any suggestions?  Also, if I did decide on the Reverse Crew...what size?  The twins come no wider than 257 mm (the 162 cm), unless I go with the 160 cm wide, but it is a directional board.  What do you think...go twin and give up a few mm of width, or go with the directional board?
12/14/2010 12:54:50 PM Dear Sierra Staff,     I have a brand new Sierra Crew 160 wide that I am taking with me to Tahoe in late December.  I am gonna break that bad boy in.  Question:  do I need to "detune" the board?  I am a total noob, so I am not certain what that means exactly.  It sounds like it means to unsharpen the edges from what I have seen in the forums.  I am not a park rider/jibber, so is detuning necessary?     Tony   P.S.  It has factory wax...should it be waxed prior to trying out for the first time, or will the factory wax be good enough?
5/21/2010 2:13:24 PM Is the waist width of the 159 Reverse Crew adequate for someone with size 12 boots?  I would prefer a wide board, but it seems the 159's waist width is only a few milimeters from being wide (usually 260 mm for most wide boards).  Do those few milimeters make a difference?  Will I get mean toe drag?  Opinions, experiences, whatever you want to share about this topic please.  Thank you.
5/14/2010 4:32:03 PM Hey everyone,  I am planning a boarding trip for December 2010.  I know you can't always predict the weather, but in your opinion, what resort has guaranteed, or almost guaranteed snow in late December?  Preferably West Coast or Rockies.  Any input you can give is appreciated.  I don't get to board often and I don't want to waste a trip.  Thanks.
5/12/2010 5:06:49 PM What is a good all-mountain board for beginners looking to advance and comes in wide 156-160.  I am an old-timer who just likes to cruise down the mountain.  I don't require speed, but I do like something that turns/carves easily.  I have a Sierra Crew 160 W, but haven't had a chance to ride it...waiting for winter .  I am looking to acquire one or two more boards if the price is right. Also, is there a boot and binding combination that works really well for someone who just cruises, or it doesn't matter?  I have Burton Freestyle bindings on the Crew and Burton Poacher boots (both of those are lower cost freestyle/park items).  I like Burton boots because my wide feet can fit into a size 12, but am open to suggestions.   My apologies if I put this in the wrong forum.
4/2/2010 2:12:15 PM I have been riding a few times, at three different resorts, and at each place, there is basically an "honor system," where no one steals your board if its in a rack.  Have any of you ever had a board stolen, or know someone who has?  What kind of security measures can one take?  Does the serial number on the board provide any measure of security?  Thoughts, comments.  Thank you.
