    fun place.... arrive early the lots can fill up,,they charge for parking so have some small bills ready,, 5 bucks I think..
  6. ocasional heelside issue

    really....6 degree toe lift? thats to many degrees to roll over imo ... I'd ditch that go to 0/3 degree heel lift & keep leading with your head you will resolve that h.s. b.s.
  7. Carving progression

    toes down "rips it" for me!! you can take advantage of the whole range of motion in your calf muscle...A couple clicks of outward cant on both feet created a time warp on hs edge for me... I found that Inward cant & toe lift kinks me up,, over pressuring the boards edge ,, usually well be 4 my weight can properly balance out the desired angulation...
  8. Carving progression

    crazy indeed!!! when I see that many peeps on slope, I go home... looks like some gates were set up on another run, maybe try to get some of that action....
  9. The Heelside wiggle

    Be careful flexion & extension of the foot is complicated... I used to think toe lift was a good thing to flatten out your foot or parallel it to the board... I found that I was wrong! It causes more calf/foot muscle fatigue & foot compression in the boot... neutrality for me is next to zero forward lean a little outward cant with added heel lift... As for my heel wobble on a vsr ; a little outward cant taught me to move my body forward into the correct position and apply pressure vs. remaining centered relying on inward cant to apply the pressure for me... just my opinion
  10. -Nevermind...this can be deleted

    Hi bigwavedave, I can relate to the set up ... I think bomber has them back in stock, so I'm just going to order them... Thanks for your reply & good luck... a 4mm t -wrench really speeds things up..
  11. The Heelside wiggle

    I found that I was using way to much forward lean with the upz boot,, it put to much pressure on the ball of my foot resulting in clinched toes & a mild case of "Morton's neuroma"...this problem was compounded with 3 degree toe lift at the binding.. I cut waaay back on the forward lean with the boot & switched my binders far away from "toe lift " Look at the tension on your boot springs they might be to soft or uneven... To much bias may be screwing with your weight distribution on the HS edge... everybody has different anatomy & styles...good luck
  12. I need two 3degree cant discs for bomber td3 bindings ,, I have paypal
  13. -Nevermind...this can be deleted

  14. Wheel Bite

    Sounds like you want a closed hill to practice hard turns on.. If so you dont need a ldp set up.. The kind of a dh gs set up like Mig mentioned is ideal... To clarify my set up let me put it this way instead,,, My ldp set up is as close as I could get to simulating a hard dh gs turn on safer terrain during a long distance pump...safer being flat to a mild hill with a wide road... Id croak if I tried to pump a short stiff gs board for 10- 20 miles. My workout starts out miles from home pretty flat pump to warm up ,then its a mild dh grade I bomb into a huge neighbor hood filled with small to large hills& urban pathways , this is where I practice harder turns.. If I survive all that then its a flat grade pump home...If I want to go farther I start from home & go out then back.
