Fair enough...I'll take the non-fishing reply, well done now let's go drink some whiskey!

Smooth Johnson? Something like that, any help?

It was a K2 ad. I got my first board after seeing their first snowboard ads in fall issues Ski and Skiing. My boss was a K2 rep, so I asked her to order me one.

Yep, but they are more likely using AT boots and wide boards rather than race/carve gear. Plate bindings seem like a good fit with splitboards.

I have a teleboard, 180cm with 114mm waist, it's not your dad's monoski. Never rode it in powder. I rarely get a chance to ski powder. When I can, I will ski it, snowboarding powder is too easy, like fat skis, bah humbug, boring. Ski it freeheel on skinny skis. Yes.

O.t.

Telerod was on the second teleboard that I have seen. I saw my third teleboard tonight at Bear Creek. Now I know that there are three freaks out there.
