Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Sidecut radius question

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just got myself a new board.
Went from very very cheap and cheerful beginner board to something more mid-range (price wise). It is still only an intermediate board, I didn't want something too stiff just yet.
Liking the plain black look:




To my question: the sidecut radius on the previous board was 8m, this one is 8.6m. Am I going to feel a huge difference?

That said I did check reviews and talked to the manufacturer before buying.. I'm trying to pretend I ain't that vain...Toofy Grin

Kruisler, I want a black board too Very Happy

the side cut is the radius of the curve that it forms if you could draw a big circle based on the curve of the side of the board, your last board had an 8 meter radius and would therefore carve an 8 meter radius turn, your new one will carve an 8.6 meter curve, i.e. a wider curve, in comparison my board has a 10 sidecut which means it will carve quite a wide arc but it is difficult to do nippy turns but great to set on an edge and runs straight. You might find your turns will beome less and more direct.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

rayscoops,

Thanks. I know the effects of the sidecut radius, I was just wondering how much of an impact a 0.6m difference would have....
