Hey everyone,
Some of you might remember about a month ago I mentioned I'd be starting a new snowboarding blog dedicated to trick guides, tech guides, and DIY help with some of my friends. And we've finally got it up and running! Just thought I'd share it with you guys, since some of you expressed interest in it last time. We are pretty sparse on content right now, but we have a few guides on ollies, waxing, and rocker/camber tech.

Anyways. This isn't meant to be an ad or anything - we're not making any money off this site, but just wanted to share it with the snowboarding community. But yeah - check it out if you have time, and we'd really appreciate any feedback you can give us.

I think it's a really good start.  To the nay-sayers who were expecting more content the OP states "We are pretty sparse on content right now...".  If these guys were doing this full time and charging $ to access the web site then I would expect a lot more content.  Take it for what it is, some snowboarders who are sharing their learning experiences with other snowboarders.  

I applaud your effort.  Clap

Good start! I'll keep an eye on it closer to snowboarding season and hopefully it will have more content on it.

Thanks guys for the encouraging comments!
We'll keep that in mind - we probably should've released the site when there was more content, but we were just too excited to wait.

Yeah we'll try to keep up the pace with the videos, but they also take a ton of time relatively. But they're more fun to watch, right?

We did have another website as well, but decided we really liked making guides, and it wasn't the right venue for what we really wanted to do. We ended up getting a ton of supporters, but they were mostly there for the guides. So we expanded. :)

I looked at your site... read the waxing page until I got to the part where it said that applying a hot wax will give you damage resistance... then I wanted to facepalm myself, and then I left.
 
good for you for doing something constructive with your time though, the site layout is nice.
