    The Stickies and Crossbows should feel a lot more stable and wobble less at high speed especially on flats. If you're doing super short, fast, linked, true carve turns then the Heads might feel more...

    Sorry, but I don't see any suggestions, direct or implied, by anyone that RVL8, Spruce etc are on the "same level" as Head, K2, etc.

    "Make rental skiboard bindings" and "make them available in ski...

    Well, it's not all catch-22. In order to rent skiboards out, you first need adjustable release bindings. There are actually quite a lot of ski shops that rent out blades like those Head 94's...

    I think one key reason for the decline of skiboarding is zero accessibility for the masses. Every sport has attrition from the aging out of its participants, so growth has to focus on attracting and...

    Do your feet a favor and consider getting custom molded boots. The old school way was to create a real cast of your feet and make the boots from the cast, but these days they use electronic mapping...

    I agree with Bad Wolf - release bindings are a must for kids. You might want to look at the 131cm Head Jr Caddy from Jeff @ Spruce. They are junior skis with custom reinforcement plates and...

    Thanks, Bill, I will probably have to order online from there.

    I don't think any kind of barrier will really work. The problem is that the inside board gets wedged into the outside board while...

    I keep snagging my Crossbows where one board slides into the rear gap between the other board and its riser and gets stuck. It is extremely annoying and actually got dangerous a few times this...

    Any good service shop should actually torque test the bindings while adjusting your DIN. If your DIN settings are off, that could be due to adjustments to pass the torque test or adjustments for...

    You are right, those Salamanders are a bit heavy at 4.7kg (2.2kg for the skis, 2.5kg for the SP10 bindings). The RVL8 and Spruce boards 98-118cm weigh roughly between 1.8 and 2.5kg, and the Spruce...

    You don't need a Porsche or Ferrari to learn to drive - an Opel will be just fine. While RVL8 and Spruce skiboards are certainly far superior to the Head Salamanders, I don't think there is any rush...

    Are you leaving the boards wet after each day of riding? The rust is kind of shaped like water beads that dripped down and sat for a while with the board on its side. The boards should be wiped...

    The nicks along the edges of the topsheets are normal. Most of my skiboards look far worse on the inside edges because I ride a very narrow stance and keep slapping my boards together. Some riders...

    The feeling of your weight shifting towards your heels might be normal. Maybe you have gotten used to leaning too forward and are now in a more balanced stance. Maybe you're standing more upright. ...

    You should read up on the main Crossbow thread as well as some of the newbie recommendation threads that mention Crossbows. If they weren't sold out for the season, I'd bet that more posters would...

    Your legs may be tired from working harder to stay balanced. And perhaps you are trying to carve with them on groomers like on traditional boards. Try slarving instead. I had to really change my...

    TIP: After you lock your boot into the binding, pull back on the shin part of the boot so that the toe of the boot lifts up vertically to rest against the upper part of the toe piece of the binding...

    If your Salomon bindings have brakes, they probably aren't wide enough to fit the XLs. You might be able to bend them but could be forced to remove the arms.

    Curses to you, Bill. :p Now you've got me even more curious. I'm happy with my quiver and really don't want yet another pair of boards, but I might have to find a way to try the RCs at some point....

    Are you saying that RCs demand better fore/aft balance from the rider compared to XLs? If so, that would be a surprise to me. I would have expected the opposite given the RCs longer length and...

    In my opinion, yes. And I am about your height but heavier than you. I take my XLs out west every time I go and never ran into a situation where it wasn't sufficient - usually great. There are...

    Some years ago I was on non-release in the park and broke one board in half. If it had twisted around a quarter rotation more than it did when I fell, I could have had serious, permanent damage to...

    While I haven't ridden the RCs, I did ride the Blunts and have the XLs and Raptors. Given your size, history with rollerblading and experience on Summit 99s, I don't think you need to go larger than...

    Revolts are great boards, but I doubt you will get consensus from most members here that they are the "best all around boards out there." There is no objective way to compare, and it all boils down...
