    Did another hour or so Sherpa-ing at Whitetail, PA today. Good firm manmade conditions, which are normally conductive to good skiing. I got there early, pretty much first chair ( a few minutes before...

    Jeff,

    Does the Crossbow rocker and sidecut work similarly to the Osprey, in that pretty much the entire length of the edge engages with just a slight angulation, but the ends do not pressure as...

    Macro or Wookie,

    Can you compare to the 120?

    Also, is the additional length felt vs. the SIIs? More or similar float in soft snow?

    It is normal to get chips like the ones in your first photo. Once you chamfer the edges, it will minimize, so do it sooner. The big delamination of the top sheet does not seem right, but who knows...

    Thanks W. Any comparison with how they ski vs. 120, one of your favorites?

    I can't help but wonder why the shape of the tail is not tucked-in like the nose is (powder ski style). I feel the slight...

    Well, when I asked my original question 3 years ago, I had no idea how different the boards I mentioned were ... The XLs are wide and short-ish , the Raptors narrow and long. I hated the XLs on East...

    One more video (last from this trip), going down the Western Territory black diamond run. Fun conditions as I mentioned above, but somewhat challenging. Filming one-handed with my phone so the...

    Yes, in the rear set of inserts. I have not tried the front mounted position. Rear-mounted seems to be working just fine in all conditions that I tried so far.

    Here is a raw video of my first couple of days on the Sherpas. I am still just getting to know them, so I am a bit stiff and don't do anything too exciting. But you can at least see they can carve...

    Sherpa - best board for tough conditions

    Thought I'd share some impressions of the 2013 Sherpa (mountain graphic).

    I have had a pair at hand for only three days, so this first post here is more of an initial impressions review. As I add...

    For ice, it is important to have good tuning. The pair I have is great on the hard ice that glares up on cold days in the mid-Atlantic man made snow. As much hold (or as little) as needed. Better...

    I thought it would be interesting to revisit this post three years later ...

    Having sold the Raptors (a bit too soft for my liking, and a somewhat harsh ride on hard man-made snow) and having...

    Tom91, thanks for the video. Looks like pretty hard conditions.
  15. The way the Spruce riser is shaped in the section...

    The way the Spruce riser is shaped in the section away from the plastic base is a bit flat. It creates a situation where the ends of it might make somewhat hard contact with the boards. I've seen...
  16. Nice! Glad you had a good time on the Crossbows!...

    Nice! Glad you had a good time on the Crossbows! Hopefully you or Wookie will soon share comparisons with the SIIs.

    How do you find the more "relaxed" turn radius?

    Release Bindings Adjustments

    Folks, the other day I skied with a friend and his family. He is an engineer and smart handy guy, and after watching some YouTube videos he thought he had setup his kids' bindings well. Not quite ......

    Thanks! Wow, a lot of tip and tail in the air ... They must ski short ;) And a lot of camber too. Keep us posted on how you find them on the slopes later this week.

    Can you guys snap a photo from the side with the skis on a level surface, like a table, to see the side profile?

    I think soft tips are generally good for versatility in softer conditions. The...

    Very true! I must have made 5x more turns on the SIIs than the next skier on the same slope :) And the finer balance needed has been really helpful for me to improve my skills (regardless of device,...

    I too spent half the day yesterday on my SIIs. After my latest edge detuning (following flattening the bases last year, which made the boards loose their sliding ability but gain...

    You mention coming from skis and that you are hard charging. If you have decent ski technique, I think you may want to stick with skis or long skiboards for "hard charging" groomers (if that means...

    As for length, it is an interesting problem. I have 156 and 176cm skis (and now the 190cm). And of course a bunch of skiboards. Generalizing, the longer the ski, the more planted and stable at speed....
