11/5/2013 12:29:43 PM Ditto, I would say around $100 for the set.  Or if split them up you might be able to get $80 for the board and $50 for the bindings. 
11/5/2013 12:24:41 PM Anything along the powder hwy in BC..... Specifically the southern stuff (Fernie, Kimberly, Whitewater, Baldface etc...)  If you get too far North or west (Banff, Revy) it can get a bit more expensive.  Unless you like to drink a lot, then stay out of Canada (booze is not cheap). Disclaimer:  I live in one of the most expensive cities in North America, so I see almost anywhere as cheap.
9/16/2013 2:12:45 PM Try doing a tail block on a Virus alpine board. Not happening. Maybe we all feel like the Burton Fish is a great jib board... common sense would strongly differ. There needs to be some isolation of products sold by a company, and marketing towards a specific terrain is the most sensible approach. Otherwise, you'll have people picking up $700 powder boards to learn snowboarding on an east coast groomer. You need to understand that the companies are not the ones who establish categories; it's the riders who select boards suitable for their specific riding. The companies observe the trend and respond accordingly. And, oh by the way, it would appear that twin-tip mid-stiff camber boards are most popular on the jump line rather than a more relaxed/comfortable feeling S-rockered full-setback powder board. Is that a coincidence, or do you still feel like "what you prefer" comfort would supercede sense and functionality? Be mindful of where you throw around that "what you prefer" logic, because it's meaningless when people simply don't know what they want. [/QUOTE] Spenser is talking about boots and bindings...... boards are by definition more terrain specific (but they never fit in the tight little boxes people want to put them in).  But I know tons of people who like all sorts of binding boot combos that some might consider weird.  Stiff boots with soft binders, or vise versa.  Or stiff boots/binding combo for park riding, or soft/soft for backcountry (both of these would be 'against' convention or marketing).  It is truly what ever you prefer when it comes to boots/bindings.  I for one don't really think most recreational riders can tell the difference between binding flex unless you go from contacts to targas or something like that. Especially when you start thinking about lateral flex vs highback stiffness. 
4/4/2013 12:33:51 PM Best thing about this thread is the 5 and out kings never see it....... well that's the second best thing next to the shlting dinos.  
3/27/2013 9:47:58 PM ^^ Yep..... I was also trying to look up stuff from when that kid Dylan (Dylanlikestodance) told a bunch of lies before a meet up and decided to get out of it he would fake a motorcycle crash.......That was pretty weird stuff.   I tried to find the thread but I was unable.... It was definitely in the ss.com hall of fame might be the best thread ever.  Had some lies, some interweb detective work, a confession everything really.   VR I am thinking you might have had better luck with this thead in the Boardroom (seems that's where everything ends up these days).

3/27/2013 1:11:26 PM Sorry wait....
3/27/2013 1:06:17 PM How do we know that is a real Romex...............
3/22/2013 12:20:46 PM Rocker will feel loser than camber.  So you might just like camber better (remember the right snowboard for you is whichever board YOU like).  Often when people move from camber to rocker it will take a few runs or a few day to get used to the difference.  If you are a good rider you will be able to get used to it, but having said that you might just like camber better.   The good news is that Skate Bananas have a high resale values so you can easily flip it for a new camber board if you wanted to.  There is also hybrid rocker/camber (in many different shapes to try) and or flat camber too.  
1/27/2013 10:18:45 PM Could be Burton/Mt Dew board but it is hard to say.  What I can tell you is that it looks like it is sandwich consturction (which is good) and that usually mean wood core not foam (also good).  Other than that I can't tell you much else.  
1/14/2013 4:24:34 PM I am guessing that is the wrong pic...... Because that is a Gyrator.  
1/14/2013 4:22:15 PM The only 2 cents I can give you is: 1) You don't have to match binding 'stiffness' with board 'stiffness'. It is all personal preference.   2) Don't ever buy a board based on looks.
