    I wish I could be there... but it is ~16hours (driving) away!

    I have Marc's The Fundamentals of Snowboard Carving and Racing - A Manual for Surfers, Coaches & Parents and it's fantastic.

    I think it can make a little difference, especially the faster you are going. I think that getting on a board that has a decent turn shape helps. I've experimented with a few different boards. The fastest times I've posted (handicaps in the low 40's) have been on a Slalom 162cm metal board, silver medal. I can get bronze on GS (185cm) hardboots, and powder boards with soft boots.

    Switching to a modern metal board made the most difference for me, in terms of different equipment. I tried out a GS suit, and it didn't seem to make much difference. I'm hoping that going to a slightly longer board might help also - experimenting with a 180cm board this weekend.

    So true!! Not only can you get a ton of information and opinions, but you can order first rate racing and carving gear online there.

    I agree with Darko, Bomber is an amazing resource and community for the hardbooter. If you are a hardbooter and are not a part of Bomber then you are missing out on something special. Though, in my experience, if you are a softbooter they are not the most welcoming to you.
