    Ride plate mods: massive change

    So if you look at the front edge of the ride plate you will see a lip.

    This I grinded with a flappy disc until flush.


    Now the major change:

    I removed the plate and removed 2mm from the raised tabs.
    Refitted and noticed about 1-2 degree of change in angle of plate.


    What I noticed: the ski now tries to avoid "digging in the nose" after certain wave jumps.

    The attitude is more nose up and seems better suited to jumping overall in "feel"

    Can't notice any neg affects.
