Re: 7" wheels

7" wheels

Hello, I would like to know if someone has ridden 7" wheels and how they differ from the regular 8"? I can imagine that pushing could be easier due to the closer distance to the ground and maybe more stability? Would love to hear your experiences with them. I am considering buying some slicks but no...

Re: Taking Trampa Dampas out for more turning

Yes, I just made myself some heelstraps out of my old snowboard bindings. They work great, but that doesn't increase much the turning radius. I've had skate trucks before but I prefer the channel trucks a hundred times over them. MBS eggs would also be a good idea, have to try that out! Thanks for t...

Re: Taking Trampa Dampas out for more turning

thanks for the ideas... maybe I will try to drill a whole through the green dampas I have left since i am not using them anyway. bringing the springs closer together sounds great too, but i dont wanna have so many wholes in my new deck right from the start...

Taking Trampa Dampas out for more turning

Hello, I am riding the Trampa vertigo axis with the yellow trampa dampas (the softest) but I still think that they are too stiff for my liking (before I was riding the greens). Today I took the ones on the front out and left the ones on the back. This provided a nice carving feel and much tighter tu...

Slicks on terrain

Hello, I was wondering how it feels riding slicks on terrain and if it's any good... Since I also ride on asphalt I would change for slicks if they are alright on offroad terrain. Also I've seen this video, there they seem to be riding slicks on smaller wheels. Do you know what wheel size they are r...

Straps-bindings for snowboard

Hello, I know this isn't directly about mountainboards, but the other day I was questioning myself while I was snowkiting if there are Strap-bindings, like the ones for the mountainboards, for snowboards. Ones that you can easily get in and out without being attached to the snowboard all the time. D...

Storing the Board at freezing temperatures

Hello, I usually keep my board in the trunk of my car. Now it is freezing outside and I would like to know if the cold weather could affect the mountainboard somehow and if it would be better to take it out and store it somewhere else or if I can leave it there without thought. Thanks for your answe...

You should probably get used to steering with a bar first. Once you are comfortable kiting with a bar jumping comes almost naturally. While riding left or right, steer the kite quickly to 12 o'clock or slightly in the opposite direction you are going and power the bar once it reaches that position. ...

I just discovered this video... this guy is soo good!
I never saw a noseroll 360 with a mountainboard. He almost landed it.

Do you guys have a video where someone lands a noseroll 360? Would like to see one being done...

I'm trying to learn it too, but I just don't get around.

Is a proper manual a requirement for this trick?

I'm trying to do it standing still. Is it necessary to do it with some speed?

How long did it take for you to learn this trick?
