Purchasing Boards and Bindings / Re: Snowboard on the wall?
« on: January 30, 2012, 05:51:52 AM »
Attached are 2 pictures showing the board hanging vertically (ignore the paintwork on the wall - it's a WIP ;-) ) and one showing a close up view of the mountings.  Essentially the one on the right is slightly loose to allow it to twist at a 90 degree angle to allow the board to be mounted/dis-mounted with ease.

The board could easily have been mounted diagonally as per the instructions given but due to lack of space and slight concern about solidness of mount it was put vertically and out the way of the bed.  After positioning this way I'd say I'd be happy to mount horizontally, diagonally or vertically as the board fixings and the weight of the board holds it solid

HTH.

Bought a set of these over Christmas.  You don't get much in the packaging i.e. 2 x plastic L-Shape holders, a couple of screws and links to instructions so on the face of it it doesn't look much for the money, however, they hold the board very well.  I had to switch the screws for different ones due to the stud walls in our house but all-in-all very pleased.

LOL.  Guess I'll take my chances.  The jacket and pants are only 2 years old so fairly up-to-date and give a fair range of movement  :D  If I get ridiculed I'll just have to face plant and dig in ostrich style  :P

Thanks.

Advice Q&A / Poma Button/T-Bar
« on: January 10, 2008, 04:48:05 PM »
This is something that worries me a little.  It seems over the last few years of skiing, I have lots of memories of queues at Poma lift being held up by snowboarders falling off.  That's not to say they're any worse but it seems to me to be a little more difficult as when skiing you are being pulled up the slope equally with a ski either side balancing whereas with a Board it looks like you'd be pulled sideways/diagonally.  Any tips on how best to handle T-Bars and Button lifts would be appreciated.

TIA.

Thanks Frosty.

After several slides across the kitchen floor it's clear that I push off with my left and slide forward with my right in front.

Clothing, Soft Goods, and Accessories / Snowboard vs Ski Gear

I've been skiing for a few years now and class myself as an intermediate, however, decided to try snowboarding this year.  I'm reluctant to buy new jacket/pants for snowboarding in case I don't get on and return to the dark-side, however, would appreciate thoughts on whether wearing ski jacket and salopettes will be too restrictive for snowboarding.

TIA.

Advice Q&A / Goofy vs Regular
« on: January 10, 2008, 10:01:57 AM »
Hi, I'm new to the site and new to snowboarding.  Have been reading the other posts avidly in the hope that I'll pick up some gems before I go for my first lesson/attempt in February.

My initial question is 'how do you know what setting is right for you on a board in terms of goofy vs regular'?  Is it easier with one particular foot in front? 

TIA.

Tango
