A couple late season tours netted some nice soft snow with variable conditions. Spring is always a tough time of year as the snow transforms and there can be high moisture one day and frozen coral reef the next. Be sure to review our spring corn base prep tips. […]

Comment on Discuss by Tabasco http://www.slidewright.com/weblog/discuss/comment-page-1/#comment-80 Tue, 16 Feb 2010 22:40:11 +0000 http://www.slidewright.com/weblog/?page_id=208#comment-80 I bought a tools4boards Super Station from SlideWright and couldn’t be happier. The service and shipping were excellent as was the product.

At first a bit intimidated by the prospect of doing my own tuning, the resources and information on this blog walked me right through the process without a hitch. I’m definitely going to upgrade my tuning tools as I found the activity to be a bit addictive but the Super Station paid for itself two times over in the first week alone. If you are just starting to consider tuning your own gear and are as confused as I am over the dizzying array of pieces and parts, I recommend starting with this kit; you won’t regret it. My next must-have tool will be a vice as soon as I figure out which one is best for my needs.

After doing 6 pair of skis including two pair that required P-Tex repairs, I figure I saved at least double what it would have cost at a shop and was a lot more fun.

My little J5 racer also placed in the top 3 on one of my (our) tunes which was a bonus. The tuning activity also allows me to introduce my kids to the art of tuning and instill the sense of pride, responsibility and appreciation that comes from maintaining their own equipment.

Thanks for a great product.

With no effort at all, I was blowing past people on cat tracks and traverses. The guys I was skiing with kept commenting how much faster my skis were (and I was even on wider, and technically slower, skis). Starting behind them from the top, I’d catchup and then out pace the whole group like there were rockets on my skis. It confirms my earlier experience back home that the RBP is very, very fast compared to other waxes I have used in recent years.

After 4 long days at Alta, the bases still looked great, so durability is very good too. In fact, I left my skis out there for my next trip, partially due to the fact that I didn’t feel the need to bring them home for another wax.
