I have a 195cm tall friend, 95kg, size 12 boot, rocks a 154 slash spectrum in every condition. Even pow with a narrow centered stance, haha.

I didn't even get to ride the Fish or Panhandler this season.

This is sad. Very sad.

Why didn't you? No pow days?? And I thought Fish is fairly flexible, OK for groomers too

Hahaa, bait for @spenser

hahaha

Yeah not that many pow days... There were days I could have taken it out; but those were so-so pow days by past seasons' standards, and kind of early on, so I sort of just brought ok pow sticks on those days (ie either Stun Gun, Archetype, Cheetah) thinking much better days were still to come...

Maybe I should be in Burton small bindings with my boot size on a fish??? I hope there are some guys in here that could help me sort this problem out.

It seems all you need is to shift the bindings towards the heelside. 

Since you have bigger feet for the size range you should have the bindings more biased to the heels. (Small boots in big bindings typically need biasing toeside).

That ^ should inset your toes like 2cm. Which, for bigger feet, every little bit helps.

38 years and you still don’t know how to mount bindings properly. 

Nice job!

He doensn't know how to ride either. Shows up here in Hokkaido every year side-slipping his way through 'japow' (make sure to pronounce in best bogan strine) oblivious to the people around him shaking their heads.

Oh and on SBF he claimed to be a street shoe size 13 but to be riding size 14 Burton boots...

Personally I just find reading long paragraphs with no information annoying.

It's like TGR review with irrelevant pics.  🙃

Just wait until you see his verbal diarrhoea on the Genesis X https://www.snowboardingforum.com/bindings/257873-18-burton-genesis-x-re-flex.html

Or his comparison of the different Genesis/X versions:

Replete with blue font and heavy 'copy & paste' from the website. The Good Ride clowns have nothing on this guy...

Let me try to get it back on the right track.

Does anyone know what kind of Fish will be the late release next year? Really hope B bring back the S rocker fish.

Going back to the previous shape would be rad. A directional camber would be great too, rather than actual s-rocker. 12 & 13 were pretty close. Still the gold standard fishes 🤗

you full camber guys who like fishes need to get an old one. A throwback with the channel would be epic.

Yes, hahaa, never going to argue with that. I have a shit ton of friends here who ski and board and most say that the feeling is different no doubt. Riding deep is never a problem though. You must be talking about beginners who see someone going off piste and decide to try for themselves on their skinny ass track skis and obviously that's going to suck.

Where I am a lot of world class freeriders live here and it's mainly those you see riding the big mountain stuff. If anything, 99% of the snowboarders struggle compared to those skiers.

So probably depends which resorts we're looking at.. I don't really pay attention to people who play in the pow (re: don't ride but experiment and frollick) but only those that actually ride. I dunno. I could never ski though. Fuck skis.

The pow scene in Courmayeur surprised me. Here in the PNW and when I've ridden in Japan, it seems like a lot of the more aggressive pow riders are snowboarders. There are still a lot of bro-dudes on fat skis who can actually ride the conditions, but snowboarders are definitely in the mix.

When I was in Courmayeur, we had one big pow day (2-4 feet depending on altitude and wind loading) and a couple of smaller ones (8-16 inches). The backcountry stuff wasn't being hit as the slide risks were huge (I think five people died in the Aosta valley in one weekend during that storm cycle, including four that were less than 400 yards outside the boundary at Courmayeur), so the powder hounds were almost exclusively hitting the resort. I saw almost no snowboarders who could ride pow. There was one dude on a Furberg (how I learned about the brand) and a couple of dudes on Dupraz who I saw riding the deeper stuff with me. Other than the four of us, the only decent pow riders I saw were a BUNCH of Euro freeride skiers on fat skis.

All of the other snowboarders I saw at Courmayeur on those days were the ones I could see from the lifts flailing in the slightly less-deep snow lower on the mountain. They all appeared to be on twin boards. On the one day, that was in FEET of powder. None of them appeared to be able to ride powder on those twin boards, despite the assertions I've heard that "nobody needs" super directional pow boards and the old "90% rider, 10% board" stuff. Maybe all of the good snowboarders were at La Thuile on those days or across the boarder in Chamonix?

Europe is much more ski oriented than board oriented (this also relflects on euroswallowtails design language - very long and narrow, full camber)...

Japan is much more surfboard oriented than ski oriented (same with board design - fat and short swallowtails allowing for surfy cutbacks, rockers starting from front foot)

USA is a bit of both but snowboarders are more freestyle oriented (saw lots of boarders hitting 50cm powder on 150ish freestyle decks, heck, anything past 165cm is considered a longboard 🙂

After having 186cm euroswallow for 10+ years i've discovered the japanese boards and never looked back since

Based on all the recent editions, I'm assuming it will be flat-rocker.

The previous S-rocker (~2014-ish) was essentially flat-rocker with a very minor/short camber section, I have that one and it's.... basically flat to rocker. Then for the blood, Phish and the green one they went ahead and just called it Flat-rocker.

Now the previous previous S-rocker (2012-ish) was more directional camber. But at that time camber was baaaaaaad and banana was cool so they called it S-rocker..... 

But they did release a retro Fish a couple yrs ago. The old school shape with modern construction.... that had directional camber. Quiver of one I'd say. So there's hope still, both have their + and -.

Dir camber Fish = true quiver of one.

Flat rocker Fish = quiver pow stick.
