I'm not actually sure how I feel about the footbed canting. I have Rome Targas with the canting on my Nitro Gullwing. I tried them on my Capita Ultrafear (flatbase from binding to binding) and they were terrible. Do they have to be on a reverse camber board or something?

Anyone check out the Live2Ride boards? another local snowboard company just starting out. They're in their 2nd year of production and this year's boards look pretty good. the 157 caught my eye. Its a lot like my 154 Ultrafear, but bigger. Flat in the middle, rocker outside of the bindings. Part of me wants to consolidate my gullwing and ultrafear into one board. I'm just not sure how a twin board would handle the 4-7" days where my gullwing earns its keep. Anything more than that and I reach for the pow board. One interesting piece of tech on the board is the topsheet. apparently the way its designed prevents snow from sticking to it. Nothing to really add to the performance IMO, but interesting nonetheless.
