No! We can discern everything there is to know about a board from the specs sheet, dammit! This is easy fucking loungin’

Gaaaah snow is super late and today it got warmer and started raining.

Makes me overthink my quiver.

I sort of want to get a Dump Truck.

=P

Same here on weather. We are bone dry below the very top of the ski area.

I would also ride a DT

The one thing to note about spring beds is that you don't feel as secure in the binding. My boots sort of slide on top of it since it's basically just slippery plastic. Only way to remedy this was to overly tighten straps. The malavita highback helps a bit with this, but in pow with snow piling and stuff I just weren't happy with them. A super fun groomer charging binding though where you don't have to deal with excess snow. Some of this might have also been a size 8 Ion in an M sized binding issue. S might've worked better. Try before buy kinda thing.

A first from a pro endorsing them though, which was nice to hear!

Prefer this shape over the classic rounded nose & tail, personally. And yes, you guys def need to get on a Dump if able to, soo good. Esp if into stiff-ish, tapered goodness 😅.

Ah 7.5m is pretty much the same as Landlord, but they both turn very differently.

 

I agree with you, 8m is mint. The perfect sidecut. But still, some boads can have a bit more or a bit less and they still feel great... so you never know until you try it hah

Ya def, in combination with the ww and flex helps determine how well I'll like the ride, personally. That 25.6cm ww on the 58 Dump (w/ size 8 boots) felt great. The 7.5m sidecut was surprisingly a ton of fun. I think if they made the sidecut similar to the Custom or Custom X's in the 7.9-8m range, would be perfect, imo. Would grab that in a heartbeat, and never let it go loll.

Same size 8 boots + M binding, it caused me same issue. I have to overtighten the straps mainly because there is room on lateral side of boots.

But I really don't like the fit of size S binding where you have to extend the whole toe ramp all the way out.

The springbeds on my Genesis X are a little softer than the ones in my Diodes. Not sure if it's a break-in kind of thing... no slippery issues at all.

Yes, this is it. Because of lateral extra space they don't feel completely snug and after a few turns you might notice your boot loose in the binding because the initial strapping in off the chair wasn't enough. And yeah the toe ramp is spot on without an extender on the M's, so haven't looked into the S size yet. Well for pow I have other great bindings on non Big B boards so not really an issue.

Yup, they extended his contract to include last season's Olympics, but now he's done. Let's be honest, it's not snowboarding he enjoys, it's winning contests.

regardless of anyone's opinion of him, it will be weird to see him ride on anything but Burton.  He came up in the Backhill program back when that existed and as a kid I remember seeing him and Mikey Rencz in those catalogs.  I also remember a TB8 (maybe 8?) segment where he had a solid mix of park, pipe and freeriding.  Those two guys being represented at such a young age on B definitely shaped my childhood

if he does snowboard again, there’s a 90% probability he’ll still get flowed Burton equipment. that or we’ll start seeing The White Collection snowboards at Target. 

actually, that’s probably most likely.
