    when is the last time TWS had plate binders or carving boards, I gave up on that waste of ink 10 yrs ago when the add to article ratio topped 60-40

    Boardski, AGREE totaly man!

    I look through it and I say to myself " a bunch of jaggofds snowboarding (more like jibbing) in places they should not be, and usualy doing stuff that is "NOT RECCOMENDED" for anyone, and it tends to be "pass pulling" sort of antics on any mountain by ski-patrol.

    Not to mention they must have a colorblind ghey ape working for the clothing design department for most of these companies..... SERIOUSLY . WHO WEARS THIS S H I T ! >?


    gappers?

    must be, because atleast in this thread here on BOL, we all look like we know W.T.F. we are doing, and have some corridnated fashion sense!

    I only got the subscription (by default) with my USASA membership.

    the Mag also "pisses me off" too. I think I'll cancel, and ask for my "refund". Just not sure of the "three dollar value" connotation that they card says........ if all I get is a crappy magazine for 12 months, or 3.00, I think I'll take the 12 months of fire starting material to burn at the lodge fireplace
    If there isn't snow, It is still Ski season... JETSKI SEASON ! Carving on the unfrozen :)

    It's a great idea, until the thread ages and picture links start breaking like they are destined to on ze internets. Not that I would complain if it did end up stickied.

    There are always other options, but just about any solution that's actually good will probably end up being a big time sink. I can only imagine what will be done about the gear reviews section.

    try this

    two people do euro carves one circle inside the other at the same time. The outside guy holds onto the snowboard of inside guy's, off snow edge.....
    be careful when the outside guy holding the edge pushes off the inside guys board to get back up, he will most definitely screw the inside guy real quick, but what a photo it would be. Bill Enos was the inside guy he almost hit a lift tower (very close)... I could never get him to do again for that photo......
    I never understood why

    Here's a couple more. Time frame: 1996, Mammoth, CA. Chair 4. Equipment: 171 Burton Asym Alp, Burton Race plates, Burton Reactors. Thoughts running through my mind: Damn, I am looking good carving. Little did I know I was doing it allllllll so wrong.

    I think I will spend more time on the carving stick, not sticks, this year.

    Tim, it was either 95 or 96. That was the first year of the Blue wood grained Alp. Not only the equipment changed, I did too. Just checked Derf's catalogs, it was 95

    Steve, I was carrying "a fair whack of speed". You can tell, I was going so fast the air friction burned the hair right off the top of my head!!!

    . Let me know what polish you use. As my hairline recedes, I'm thinking a good base prep wax, then (depending on outside temp, of course.) a good hot wax should do it..

    I did ride out of it, I think there was a little chatter though.

    Chatter turns a 167cm board into a 180cm board.
