8/18/2014 9:11:33 PM 153 Capita Totally FK'N Awesome with a pair of Union Forces.
8/16/2014 1:32:11 PM No need to spend the extra money, doubt that you'll ever notice the difference between the two.
8/16/2014 1:29:15 PM ^+1I also had experience with bindings that supposed to be in my boot size range but felt way too big with lots of room. Felt sluggish. So if you're in between binding size, go for the smaller one. 
8/16/2014 1:23:56 PM K2 www and Rome Artifact Rocker are both very fun buttery boards.
8/4/2014 12:31:14 AM It all comes down to preference (sorry for beating a dead horse).Yu rike it soft or hard?Union contact pro have a flexier baseplate and the highback is also softer than the geneius as I recall (please correct me if I'm wrong).I have a pair of 2010 Salomon relays and my buddy had a pair of the 2011 chiefs. Salomon is below par compare to Burton and union. Doesn't fit boots as good, ratchets and buckles are not as solid nor as smooth. They might have improved now.

3/4/2014 4:52:14 PM So are your boots centered in relation to the board when is strapped in? The bindings maybe centered but your boots might not be. Double checked that if you haven't done so. You don't need to put the boots on, just strap in the boots into your bindings screwed in the board and see if the toe and heel overhangs are equal. Once the boots seem centered, strap yourself in. Now bend your knees a little like you're riding, and see if it takes the same effort to lift toe and heel edge to about the same height. If you feel lifting either edge to about the same height feels about the same and you're not losing your balance, is centered. 25/-9 is really bias. I will suggest 18/-12 for now or 15/-9. When you ride, do you put more pressure on your back leg? If so, you need to apply even pressure to both legs. Don't seat on the back leg. Your shoulders should be parallel to the slope. You should be able to apply a little more pressure to the front leg with no problem. Forward lean should help you bend your knees just enough automatically. I use about 2-3 clicks from 0 lean depending on condition. Stance width...my buddy is 6ft 200lbs at about 23.5-24.5 inches. All of the adjustments above are all preference orientated, just work on the fundamentals of riding and have fun. You'll get comfy soon enough. Hope I can help. Good luck
3/4/2014 4:33:03 PM ^+1 I checked noaa for the forecast at Twin Bridges at 8000 elevation, is raining, 60% chance... Might snow after the rain but with less than an inch.
2/22/2014 12:39:28 PM I didn't want to start a new post. Is almost that time again guys...
2/22/2014 12:34:12 PM ^wat??? No Harbaugh, don't go. C'mon, niners need him, hack Kaep needs him. Kaep is only taking 1 million in pay for the season, and niners still don't have enough money to keep Harbaugh.
2/22/2014 12:29:23 PM Was talking to my buddy last night. He has size 13 boots in Union Contact Pro in L/XL. He rides with the toe strap on top just like AJD13 instead of at the end. He could get the toe strap to the end but is not as comfy and it slips off after laying down some aggressive toe edges.
2/22/2014 12:23:00 PM Bazemore makes a good team mate but he was wild when he played for the Warriors. I like him, hope he does good.
2/21/2014 9:49:29 PM I likie Gatorade sticker. Here's Rides instruction to get their stickers... If you are in the United States, please send a separate (S)elf-(A)ddressed, (S)tamped (postage paid) (E)nvelope inside the envelope you're mailing us. To receive 3 or so RIDE stickers. Mail your S.A.S.E. to: Ride Snowboards Sticker Request 4201 6th Ave S Seattle, WA 98108 Please note - Requests can take a few months to process. Please limit yourself to one request per six month period. I'm going to send my envelop out tomorrow. Lets see if I'll get it before next season starts.
2/21/2014 9:23:30 PM Went to Sierra@Tahoe yesterday Spring condition, icy to start but soften up as the day went on. Backside is open along with most of the parks. Awesome day. ^Ajd13 The heelcup loop can be adjusted as well in case you didn't know. I haven't done it since I last adjusted it but I think all you have to do is unscrew the ankle strap and ankle ladder strap (or there might be another set of screws that hold the highback). You'll figure it out, or go back to the factory instruction. From there, the heelcup loop should be free to slide in and out. 3 positions, 0,1, and 2.
2/21/2014 9:12:33 PM ^ Different brands have different fit. Different models of the same brand all have different fit. Different model years of the same model also fits differently. So go out and have fun shopping. Extra time spent on trying boots will save you from a lot of foot ache. Go to your local shops and try on as many boots as you can. Be nice to the staff.
