  1. ^ And he had cheek to say that after straight lining and almost taking out Patrick, who BTW, was on a small board and barely needing 1/3 of the run to carve the turn... On brighter side, same day, from a liftie: "Whaaat, a 192?!?"
  2. Side cut is about 10m.
  3. Good learning board, especially for not too heavy of a rider. Take note it's foam core.
  4. After the last yahoo, with only the most hardcore core members present, what's better then to finish the season with a sip of the Gentleman Jack? Cheers, see you again in the autumn!
  5. 3-5 members of Cypress crew are heading to Whistler tomorrow. It might be the last one for few of us...
  6. Yeah, stance back is OK, just try riding on both feet. Of course we don't know what kind of board is in question...
  7. Ride more balanced over both feet. If you can't, get real pow board.
  8. Pm sent.
  9. Hey, what are exact waist widths on BX and MFR?
  10. Cypress crew: Roy, Patrick, B, Gary on skis and Perry on softies, are just back from a great Sunday at Blackcomb! There are tons of snow still for this time of the year and all sorts of conditions, depending on the part of the mountain and time. We has everything from packed pov to icy crunch, and from cloud to Sun to snowing.... Runs of the day: Cruiser, Ridgerunner. Meal of the day: lamb stew! ;) Most improved rider of the day: Perry To be repeated next Sunday, weather permitting.
  11. Damn, got to make it to Valle Nevado, sooner or later! It's a sister resort of our mountain, I think I'd have 10 days free pass :)
  12. Oh, we though in Dubai... ;)
  13. Better fixes: Whistler open until the end of April, then Blackcomb to the end of May. Glacier until August! Mt Hood glacier, I believe, right through the summer...
  14. I had the Tank 192 in the slush and spring moguls, all day long yesterday. It performed great!
