Thats a nice board Ieuan Jehu has. The first though was that if it was a black deck with yellow letters with the words from the start of Star Wars, then that'd be cool.
My second thought echos LB4UL - when will it get dirty?!

McCarver, my answer would be yes, I've not got a problem, whatsoever - Its great that people want to read my ramblings. Just covering all bases though, I submitted the article to Rem so I guess it now belongs to them, so it may be them that give the okay to this, not me. I may be very, very wrong th...

Cheers fellas, much appreciated. Just to explain how things work, I'm not a natural writer so sent a version to the Rem boys. They then offered suggestions, tidied things up, added photos and got it in to the state you see on the link above. I highly suggest that if you have ramblings that you want ...

Anyone have any knowledge on using a snowboard with soft bindings, in this case Rage bindings with walking boots? I'm trying to get hold of a second hand board at the mo and am hoping I can use my nosno bindings rather than have to get hold of full bindings and boots. Any advice appreciated - I have...

I'm confused Haha, its not the best bit of English, I'll reiterate and hope logic wins! I'll assume Primo Alphas (4ply) = Primo Alpha lite (2ply). Due to added ply, Primo Alpha weigh more than primo alpha lites. Do primo alpha lites + plastic weigh similar to primo alpha? If so, save £5 and buy pri...

Regarding tyres: Does anyone know the weight difference between the Primo alpha lites and he plain alphas and am I correct in saying that the only difference between the two is the 2 ply verses 4 ply respectfully? Following on from this, I wonder the weight difference (since Jasper is interested in ...

im upgrading my deck to an mbs comp 90 and changing the trucks to mbs matrix. so what else do i change? That doesn't leave much else to change: tyres, hubs and bindings. You're not going to save any weight changing bindings, so as LB4UL says, tyres and hubs. I've not done the maths, but a regular c...

Some good points well made here. Couple of extra bits i'd like to throw into the mix:

- even not-for-profit organisations have to generate profit to survive
- sounds like a great way to get fresh blood into the sport

First impressions, if this wasn't mountain board lessons but guitar lessons, then I'd say this was fantastic value for money. Yes, there are on-line guides, but having direct feedback is invaluable. Secondly if there was a competition at the end of it and you can either be part of the team, or enter...

Its great that this thread is going to become more and more awesome as everyone who hasn't yet ridden in 2010, gets to ride! I managed to get out for 40 minutes today at my very local spot which is normally a bit short to be of much use. With no cars using the road at the bottom due to excessive sno...

Have you been to either of these places, and if so, can you vouch for them? Unfortunately no One for the future I hope! Also i wanted to thank you for the help that your dirtbox site provided me when i was trying to get old and new MBS board length comparisons. Yet again, the info was just what i n...

Well, I rode a ton the first and second day of the new year but I think I may be taking a small break for the next few weeks. My fourth child was born yesterday evening! She was born on 1-3-10 at 10:31, kinda cool. Her name is Noelle Claire and I'll post some pics soon. I'm still in the hospital wi...

My board's picture is the same as my avatar pic. An MBS PRO 100 that i picked up for £200 from a guy who had only used it once! Its a brand new board that i got for an absolute steal from someone that just wanted a quick sale! Nice board - looks like F3 bindings, matrix lites and rockstar pros? You...

Personally, I've always thought that whilst on average very few people ride mountain boards on mountains, that the general population can understand the concept of mountain boarding in the same boundaries set by mountain biking. i.e. you could ride a mountain, but equally you could ride a road, trac...
