If you're one of the people who uses a GoPro on the end of a pole to shoot yourself snowboarding, cropping is what happens when you chop your head off, or cut the board off the bottom of the shot.
Maybe that doesn't matter to you, but as a snowboarding photographer I'm always left wondering if the riding's really as bad as the upper body suggests, or if the rider really does look better without a head.

Burton changed their channel design again this year. Well everyone said it was broken when it was launched, and as they've changed it every year since perhaps they realize we were right. Here's how you make the 2011-2012 channel system work with 4x4 bindings, thanks to Dustin @Wiegele's who worked this out.

Snowboard reviews are mostly useless
Here's an example... I just rode two boards on two consecutive days. One was excellent, the other was almost useless. They're both perfectly good boards, but one happens to have the characteristics I need, the other doesn't. So if you don't weigh precisely 62kgs and ride powder fast, then your experience may differ from mine, hence the value you can get from this is limited.

I found myself in the middle of one of the larger storm systems, peaking at 100cms in one 24 hour period. That's a lot of snow, most of it 3%. You could walk to breakfast, and by the time you walked back your tracks would be gone. Luckily this was the time when someone offered me the loan of a Burton Stella, a board I'd never heard of before. The Stellar immediately looked like the business - a little like a Dupraz and those other big powder boards.
