12/1/2012 5:43:09 PM Pain is usually located under the foot, specially in the arch area. But the whole thing hurts pretty much. I can also feel some discomfort on the sides of the foot and sometimes in the front of the toes (but not so much, so I'm scared to go to a higher size) the numbness/tingly sensation is usually on the toes sometimes going back all the way to the arch region. I'm scared of going to a higher size because I dont want too much heel lift, secially after the boot packs...   I've always had trouble with heel lift. Dont know if I'm doing something wrong...     But it just sucks cause I always have trouble with my feet, and cant even stand to complete a trail sometimes without having to stop because of the pain. Sometimes I can kind of ignore it enough to enjoy a whole ride down, but most of the time its a stong pain that can extend to my sheens on a bad day... Granted Ive had non-snowboarding issues with my legs and feet before, but the boots just kill me man...   I just man up as much as I can and try to fight it (mentally) because I love riding so much, but I am dedicated to find something that works for me... Out of so many different models and brands of boots, one has got to be comfortable right???     At least I hope so...
12/1/2012 6:16:11 AM ^ Was that random enough??
12/1/2012 6:14:13 AM If man evolved from the monkeys going through some evolutionary steps in between, and today there are both monkeys and men, where did all the monkey-men go to then???
11/30/2012 6:49:55 PM hey salad, why are you selling it?
11/30/2012 6:44:33 PM Sorry, not really a hypothetical question thing, but whatever...
11/30/2012 6:41:43 PM If you clean yourself whe you take a shower, why do we have to clean the towels?? Have you guys thought about that? haha
11/30/2012 5:13:20 PM I actually tried the K2 Myasis and they were more comfy than most other boots, but after maybe 5 minutes I started feeling my feet hurt and get numb...   I guess I have a VERY wide foot...
11/29/2012 10:55:38 PM Thanks! I found it...
11/29/2012 6:11:14 PM I dont really know this, although I should, but what is the proper way of selecting the pair of boots that are a perfect fit for you?? How should it be done?? What are the considerations that you would evaluate when doing the boot fitting??
11/29/2012 6:06:40 PM Hey guys! I have wide feet and have trouble finding a comfortable pair of boots. Can you guys suggest any brands or specific models out there that might be available in Wide versions??? I know of Thirty Twos... but for some reason I've had trouble finding those. Anyways, my old boots broke so I need to get some new ones and wanted to try several brands/models to find the right one for me... Anything out there I should be looking for specifically??

12/12/2010 6:53:11 PM Has anyone here been to the Yawgoo Valley Ski resort in Rhode Island? I know it is very (VERY) small but I also know it is pretty cheap! ($25 approx.) I hear they have a terrain park and since I am starting to get into doing tricks and learning new freestyle stuff (and this place is like 30 minutes away from home), I was thinking of going there whenever I can. That way I can practice and learn new stuff, so I can go at it with confidence when I go to bigger/better mountains. Does anyone know how is the terrain park there??
12/12/2010 6:11:43 PM Are you talking about deep powder riding here? I don't see why would you have to lean to your back foot... Maybe I'm not doing something I should... Explain please? I am 5'7", 235-240lbs. I started snowboarding last season and would say am at the beginner-intermediate level. I am an all mountain rider, leaning towards freestyle. I like speed and carving, but also doing jumps and going over features in the snow (moguls, snow mounds, etc). I am learning to do 180's and grabs from small snow mounds and jumps, and would like to get into bigger jumps, flat ground tricks, and jibs as soon as possible. I would consider my style kind of agressive (compared to other beginners), and like the challenging terrain better than the flat slopes... When you say "turn transitions", do you mean changing from heel to toe, and vice versa? Also, how would having a wider stance affect me when trying tricks (board presses, ollies, 180's, grabs) other than jibs?
12/12/2010 4:54:18 PM I dont know if its worth a 12 hour drive for you, but for me it was worth a 4 hour drive from Rhode Island. Best conditions I have been on... Then again I just started snowboarding last season...   But right now there's a lot of natural snow (specially towards the peak!!). At the peak they had to uncover the trail map that's located when you get out of the lift! And there were (closed) parts of the mountain that were ungroomed and had snow mounds that were high enough to get pretty close to the lift. That's how nice it was! I was surprised to see that much snow... It's mostly powder and packed powder. It was awesome and the trails are pretty cool and interesting. They have it all, flat slopes, bumps, moguls, jumps, etc... I didn't go through all the trails that were open because I liked the one I did so much! It's definitely a great mountain. I will probably go again once or twice this season... How long are you going to stay in the area though? It seems like a very hardcore drive for just a day...
12/12/2010 4:31:42 PM I have been wanting (and trying) to set up my bindings in a way that is the most comfortable but also provides the most efficient control. While thinking about this, I came up with these questions: 1) How much of binding setup should be influenced by rider style vs. rider comfort? 2) How does the high-back angle affect ones riding? 3) What is the difference between wider angles and narrower (smaller) angles in the bindings? What advantages do they have? 4) How far apart should my bindings be between each other?
