Ref stance was trash on the Deep Thinker.  Bumped back off it and it's a dream now.  Stellar stellar board

Unions are shitty for viewing stance on the channel, literally can't see anything.  I'll try to take a pic tmrw at the hill though.  I used to set up all my directional B boards about 0.5" ahead of reference, sometimes a little more and found they ride better.  I eyeballed (without being able to exactly see) this setup as about 1" behind ref on the front and 0.5" behind ref on the rear giving me a stance width just shy of 22".  Everything clicked the way setting up a Fish ahead of ref does

pic of the dialed in setup--21 or 24 on the front, I can't remember, +3 on the rear and maybe a hair under 22" but I don't really know tbh.  It feels good and works gooder

So after being a Burton only rider for 3 seasons, I bought some unions. Interested to try a few other flavors to add to the quiver. My favorite Burton decks have been the con artist, deep thinker, flight attendant, and hometown hero. What’s comparable?

Anybody know if healthcare workers are going to be included in the performer program again next year?

Judging by how quickly and abruptly they lowered and then ended it...I highly doubt it.

I’m curious what the number of applicants were for them to shut it down. Must have been overwhelmed with them.

@firewalker people were bulk buying and selling. Yeah they're tightening it up for sure.

I got in when the discount was still 50% for healthcare workers and managed to make my purchases before it dropped to 25%. Not expecting any additional access once my current expires in August.

It's interesting to see some of the AK outwear were completely sold out before Black Friday last year. Never saw that before for sure.

All hardgoods still have plenty in stock right now, including family tree line boards (they are excluded from performer program so it makes sense).

^What he said

I have two 163 wide Deep thinkers now, just in case. Probably overall my favorite board. 90% of the time I run 1/4 inch forward of ref. I like having a tail. Great board for travelers, pretty close to a do it all type board. My only gripe is for the wides they need to be a bit wider. I have booted out on steep faces a couple times now. A size 13 boot on the 163w has quite a bit of over hang at the tail.
