2/14/2017 5:43:23 PM Whaaat! I earned a point today, finally. Sweeet. I'm that much closer to my free board. Edit: make that 2 points (includes this post). Mind blown. Back to back points for posts.
2/14/2017 5:39:55 PM You'll be glad you did.I'm in between sizes for bindings too. Is waaay better to have a tighter fit then boots that fits loose in your bindings. I feel like I have to work so much harder because the bindings that's on the bigger size doesn't transfer all the energy I put in them. Feels sloppy. 
2/14/2017 5:33:31 PM I've a 2011 Rome Artifact Rocker 147 for sale. Pm me if u r interested.
2/14/2017 5:29:36 PM Hwy 50 was closed over the pass weekend due to Mudslide. So glad I decided to do something else instead. 
2/14/2017 5:26:49 PM If you like to surf, Signal Park Rocker is going to offer very similar feel. My buddy skated n surfs too, according to him, Capita FK feels like skateboarding n Signal Park Rocker feels like surfing. I ride Signal Rocker, never surfed before but I can see and feel it. I had a pair of Unions Rosa (women Flite) on it, but got a pair of Burton Cartel Reflex...and haven't gone back to the Unions. My buddy have Burton Triad n Union Contact Pros, he likes them both, but he can feel the difference between them.
2/6/2017 7:14:29 PM Is gonna rain in da sierra of tahoe area. Whyyyyyyyyy! Is gonna snow again but why come back rain. Is Feb. Too early for this.
2/6/2017 7:02:18 PM Have you tried Asian fit goggs from oakley? Also if you go oakley, they offer prism lenses. It's depth and contrast is outta this world. Is like ultra 4k HD vision. I had oakley fire lense, dragon amber and ion amber lense, non can compare. My local store have a tablet that supposedly project pics with the same spectrum and brightness as the real world. So I looked at both bluebird powder day pic and cloudy snow day pic. The prism lense offer the most depth perception on both days. Amazing. I think they're the A-frame 2.0 with prism lense and Asian fit... $160 at my local shop. After I tried them, I purchase them immediately. Pricey...meh...yea...kinda...quality of vision, priceless. 
2/6/2017 6:44:26 PM Is mostly your binding setup.Start with 15 and -9.Are your boots centered in your bindings?After centering your boots in your Bindings, now is your boot centered on your board while the boots are strapped in to your Bindings and the bindings mounted on the board? My buddy only ride once or twice a year. And last time he rode, he had the same problem. Think he was mostly sliding straight diagonally biased towards his toe edge. So I helped him centered his boots to his bindings and centered the boot and binding to the board. After the adjustment, no complaints.  Spent some time with it. Carpet ride it. Is okay if the toe and heel sticks out of the edge a bit. Feel your edge on the carpet. Lean on the toe edge then the heel edge. If the force applied feels about the same to load each edge. Then you should be close. Now, take it to the slopes, and most likely, you'll need a little more fine tuning.  Depending on which bindings you have. The bindings might have adjustment on how far your boots sit in your bindings. That might help. And adjust you straps as needed.  Good luck and have fun. It's not your fault, is just the binding setup. 
2/6/2017 5:22:11 PM Gnu makes asymmetrical sidecut too. Think they have a park pickle which is a lib tech skate banana with asymmetrical sidecut and other models too. I dunno if you'll really need asymmetrical sidecut as most riders will get use to both edges and automatically adjust to the difference subconsciously. And realistically, I don't think anyone can tell if they're applying force evenly from toe to heel edge. Your mind makes that calcuation according to the slope, angle and traction and you're never gonna carve the exact same spot over and over. But if you do, I doubt you'll be...o last time I applied this much force on my toe edge. So this time, I'm gonna apply the same force to my heel edge. When you ride, I doubt you think like that. So...asymmetrical sidecut is more of a gimmick. Not trying to offend you. Just trying to throw out my 2 cents. Hope this helps and gives you more options to choose from. If you decided on not needing asymmetrical sidecut. Capita makes awesome flat camber boards. I've the space metal fantasy which is the girl version of their indoor survival?!?...Twin shape, mid flex, flat kick...zero camber pass the inserts then kicks up. I'm 125lbs 5'10 on a 147cm. Amazing all around board. From jibs to pow. From butters to deep carves. Simply amazing.
2/6/2017 4:59:49 PM I do agree with the board being on the short side, but the k2 www is meant to be downsized a couple cm. So is not too short, just on the short side of your range. Second, that's not the board to carve with. You can, but is not build to carve aggressively especially with how the sidecut is, and is soft longitudinally and laterally, which doesn't transition your input as well. From experience, I've a Rome artifact rocker which is similar to the k2 www. Is feels like surfing. Now to your current setup. Dial in more forward lean to your highbacks of your Bindings. This will preload more force to your board, and help your get on your edge faster and make transition from edge to edge more seamless. Too much lean...you'll know when there is. Play around with forward lean and try to go up to an inch narrower with your stance. Lean with your upper body to initiate the carve. Hope this helps. Lots more snow left for your new board if u do decide on a new one. Keep ur k2 www n get a traditional camber board that you'll enjoy carving on. 
11/26/2016 3:37:06 PM An adventure that lead to Ebron getting me zero points for fantasy on Thurs. Swoop him up cause he got 16pts the pass two games, but 0, ZERO. C'MON MAN. Lol
11/26/2016 3:31:48 PM Welcome to the forum.If you are only planning to do a trip or two a year. Than it doesn't really matter. But if you go more than 2, 3 times a season than its worth getting better gear cause you're gonna want something more out of your gear. Do you mind buying used. Used top brands are most likely still be better than M3 or 24/7.Try craigslist or eBay. But do buy new boots. Must try before you buy. You can still have fun if the board doesn't fit your size and/or riding style or level. But a boot that doesn't fit is gonna be a bad day.
10/31/2016 4:28:27 PM Tahoe looks like it's got a good base layer started but let's see how long it'll last... I'll say the snow will be gone by Thursday. 
10/31/2016 4:22:25 PM Please check in to Standing Rock Indian Reservation on Fb. The Morton County Sheriff's Department has been using Facebook check-ins to find out who is at Standing Rock in order to target them in attempts to disrupt the prayer camps. So Water Protecters are calling on EVERYONE to check-in at Standing Rock, ND to overwhelm and confuse them. This is concrete action that can protect people putting their bodies and well-beings on the line that we can do without leaving our homes. Will you join me in Standing Rock?"
10/17/2016 3:31:09 PM Fk'n fantasy football, and 49ers. Ugh, now that I'm outta class, I get to change the alternator in my car that's parked in a public parking lot.
