alot easier to balance, and because your upper body is slightly facing forward its easier on your ankles if your front foot is turned forward a bit.
lol this is how they were setup when i got them. im definitely gonna angle them outward. i got this whole setup and boots for 170 from a friend. pretty good deal, seeing the board is now only 2 years old . and i didnt even use it at all last year.

That is a good deal... And like 325max said, bring a multi-tool.. I think Burton even has one, sometimes Burton uses there own hardware and you need special tools to adjust.

another big thing for me is ankle support, if you ankles move in your boots at all it will kill you by the end of the day. My boots have a separate inner boot that keeps my ankles tight, I went thru 3 pairs before I found the right one.

Can't wait for winter to come back again. Even though I'm in Ohio, I always try to get out to NY to get some decent snow...I gotta get to West sometime.

It's all about Never Summer. The combo Rocker and camber makes it a no compromise all win board.

The SL is a good all mountain and park board, and the evo is the same board but completely bi directional.

the boots i got are a size small so they fit extra snug and dont move around...i still gear though (pants, jacket, gloves, goggles)

rocker camber.. I can't even begin to imagine what that might feel like. Finally get to ride a non-cambered board this season. Hopefully it'll help w/the presses a lil more! (Nitro T1)

Awesome thread with some great pics. My brother used to live in Mammoth, taken a road trip there 25+ times over the years, never had a bad experience. Nice to see so many boarders on here. Check the 3 vids I posted in this thread, get you pumped for riding... almost here.
