But Jim, lets think it all the way through. He can have it custom painted after you repair it.

That's a good all purpose board. remember there not like bikes. You won't be wishing you had more power in a year or the board is to small. Simply tuning or detuning the edge will make a difference in how the board feels. Go with it.

Is that measured parallel to the deck or offset like most people ride? your right at the edge of the sizing chart for that.

P.S. no curb jokes from me.

He can max out the stance to 24"+ and then ride +27 and -27 if he really wants. I say it won't work.

Flows are worse than baseless bindings or carving bindings.

Flows suck :P

Are you planning on buying now? If you can wait, check out the end of the year sales/buying this years model at the beginning of next season. You can get really nice gear for a good price. especially if you don't have a specific board in mind. Viking Ski Shop is usually pretty reasonable with the last year model prices.

Yep T bolts and baseless lowbacks, didn't even have a normal insert on the board. What he paid for the tune was probably more than the whole board was worth.

holy fucking shit, he was tuning that thing? Damn dude. I didn't think those things were legal anymore.

I dumped my Santa Cruz XXX H-Type 151 with my baseless low-back on my ex-roommate a few years ago. I got sick of lugging it around only to show it off. I had 3 core hits from rocks, and one of them snapped the edge. The nose and tail were delamming also. Thing was done. Gonzo.

flows also suck because they have poor quality. they have a lot of plastic and they break. i'm sure there are people who swear by them and never had any issues, but I have seen a lot of them break. they don't take abuse well.

Either the boot or binding doesn't fit.

Get some better bindings, like we've been saying, Flows suck.

It could be your boot, tighten those fuggers down, but I'd bet dollars to donuts its those damn bindings.

in the boot or binding? if it's lifting out of the bindings, they aren't tight enough. if it's lifting inside the boot, get new boots :P
