4/28/2009 1:32:22 PM This is sick for ridecam. http://www.snowboard-mag.com/?q=node/35188 VholdR Introduces ContourHD: The World's First HD Wearable Camcorder VholdR, the market leader for shoot and share wearable video cameras, is introducing ContourHD: The World's First (and lightest) HD Wearable Camcorder. The ideal video camera to shoot and share your active lifestyle, ContourHD combines amazing video quality (choose between crisp High Definition or smooth High Action SD), hands-free wearability (attach ContourHD to your goggles, helmet, equipment, or vehicle), and one button simplicity (single button to shoot and share online). Light enough (4 ounces) to fit on your goggles, this compact and rugged video camera makes HD quality video affordable ($299.99 MSRP) to capture and publish online for the estimated 75 million adventure sports enthusiasts around the world. "ContourHD is the perfect camcorder for the weekend warrior in your life who is skiing, boarding, mountain biking, or even riding a motorcycle," says Marc Barros, VholdR's CEO. "ContourHD and our Easy Edit software are making HD action video easy to shoot and share online in seconds." Perfected for outdoor use, ContourHD can switch between crisp HD quality video captured at 30 frames per second or butter smooth SD quality video captured at 60 frames per second. Its all-in-one design means ContourHD has no wires or a separate recorder, but instead captures up to 8 hours of HD video to its own internal microSD memory card (compatible with up to a 16GB card). Armored with an aluminum body and two lasers for quick alignment, ContourHD is ready for any weather or adventure sport. The launch of ContourHD also includes an HD upgrade to the company's Easy Edit software (VholdR Desktop) and online adventure sports community (VholdR.com). Plug ContourHD into the computer with the included USB cable and quickly import, clip, and share your videos to the growing international community on http://www.VholdR.com. Syndicate your adventures to Facebook, Twitter or MySpace and publish your trip to friends or total strangers. ContourHD Features • 2 Video Settings High Definition: Fill your screen with vivid, widescreen (16:9) action video. With a full 1280x720 (pixels) window and 30 frames per second, your videos will be just how you remember them, big and awesome! High Action: Ideal for making the fastest adventure sports appear as smooth as butter. Recording standard definition video at 60 frames per second (twice as many frames as TV quality video) you won't miss any of the action. • Record over 8 Hours of HD Video ContourHD can record up to 8 hours of HD quality video or 16 hours of SD quality video to an internal microSD memory card (compatible up to a 16GB memory card). Powered by a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, this robust camera recharges through a USB cable connected directly to your computer. • Wide Angle Lens: At 135 degrees, the new ContourHD lens strikes the perfect balance in capturing the entire scene without over-distorting the video. • Wearable Anywhere Patent-pending TRailTM Mounts "slide and lock" ContourHD onto a series of different mounts for your goggle, helmet, handlebar, vehicle, or anywhere else you want to mount it. Wear HD video on more than just your head. • One Button Simplicity ContourHD's operation couldn't be simpler with a single oversized record switch (to be operated even with a pair of gloves on) and click to share software. • Laser Alignment Two lasers and a 192o rotating lens ensure you line up the shot every time. Turn on the lasers and rotate the front lens until the two laser points are horizontally aligned. • Armored Body A water-resistant camera for all seasons its light (4 ounces/116 grams) anodized aluminum body withstands dust, dirt, mud, and snow. • Easy Edit Mac and PC Software Easy Edit software (Mac and PC compatible) makes it automatic to import your videos from the camera, clip out the best parts, and share them to VholdR.com. Availability and Price ContourHD will be available in May 2009 for $299.99 with Abt Electronics, Amazon.com, B&H Photo and HelmetCameraCentral.com.

4/24/2009 3:56:02 PM So, just got my cartel GMP's in, and I'm setting them up and i've noticed a couple weird things.  When I setup my triads a few months back they have a different bed (superbed? I think.  which have 3 bubbles, one used for angles)  those i had no issues with, pretty straightforward.  These don't, and they are kinda difficult to see.  What angle do these look like to you?  15?  These things are incredibly difficult to lineup properly, especially in an averagely lit room. This is the left binding, regular stance: Also.  When i rotated the highbacks, i've noticed a gab between the highback and the heelcup and i'm wondering if this will be problematic.  No matter how many time I unscrew/rescrew it in, there's always a small gap on one of the sides. Here are just two reference pictures as well. The right binding is (arguably) setup at -12 but its so really hard to line it up efficiently since you are eyeballing it more so then using 'grooves' to feel when its in properly.  (thats what she said) At any rate, I thoguht this might be informative if anyone else owns or will be owning these bindings, as they threw me for a couple loops when compared to my triad setup awhile back.

4/21/2009 11:24:43 AM I assume some of you play, so this thread wont be used entirely by me. $1/$2 Cash game last night. Me: QQ / About $240 in chips -- 2nd hand of the night - I raise under the gun to $17 - 2 callers Flop:  QH JC 4H - I lead out $25 - Guy to my left goes all in for $60 - Guy to my right calls $60 - I shove all-in on top for $240ish - Guy to my right thinks for a second, says he thinks I have a set, and promptly calls with K/10 off-suit Turn: No help River: 9 - Player to my right makes straight K-Q-J-10-9 This hand sucks for multiple reasons, and not just because I lost.  The player to my right who put me on a set and then promptly called with 30% to win is a really good player, and even though he totally donked me by calling $180 more with a draw like that, if we were playing that hand face up the whole time, i'd want him to call every single time.  After 2-pair, thats the hand i'd want him to have most when i'm shoving. On the river i was actually HEAVILY favored.  I had more cards to draw to a boat then he did his straight, but he lucked out. Sucks. I don't know what to expect this thread to become, but it could be fun.
4/20/2009 9:29:12 AM KMorrison, Myself, and a friend of his are headed out to snowbird in Utah for some spring riding. We will be there Thurdsay, April 30th Until Monday, May 4th The tentative plan is to ride from 12-3 on thursday after we arrive, and then all day fri/sat/sun and possibly half the day monday before leaving at 5PM If anyone wants to travel out and ride that would be awesome, and of course we hope some of the locals can make it out.
4/15/2009 11:57:06 AM Seriously? Who's going to go buy this, I know someone here will. *coughclosetheflatbedthoughcough* http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/spo/1121975214.html
4/15/2009 11:05:05 AM So......... I've been struggling to find  a pair of CO2's EST in medium/white, so i called a local shop in Utah since i'm headed out there in a couple weeks to see if maybe I could pick some up when I get there.  This was the phone conversation. Employee:  "Hello, snowboards" Me: "Hey, I'm headed out there in a couple weeks and was hoping you could check your stock for a binding?" Employee: "Sure, what are you looking for" Me: "Looking for CO2's EST in medium, preferably in white" Employee: " (pause) ... Oh, we don't back EST.. they hurt our feet" Me: ".......uhm...Ok" Employee: "Yeah, they hurt our feet. We have the regular CO2's though" Me: ".....cool, thanks" Employee: "No problem!" Who is "our"?  The store? Utah? Mormons? Some cult? What an odd reason to not stock something, just because the 4 kids who ride their didn't like them...
4/7/2009 3:51:10 PM Does anyone know when snowbird is slated to close? Or most of the other utah resorts? In essence, I suppose I'm asking if anything will be open the second/third week of may.  Thanks

4/7/2009 8:17:01 AM Just wondering what company/board everyone is most stoked on for 2010 If you have plans to buy multiples, just pick the one you are getting first or are more looking forward to. I personally can't decide between - Burton Custom V-Rocker - Lib Tech TRS - Capita Green Machine I voted for Burton since the v-rocker is probably what i'll end up getting.
4/7/2009 7:55:35 AM If you have a pair of White Medium EST triads for trade or sale let me know. That is all.
4/6/2009 12:30:07 PM What is the board that you use most (not including park).  Not a condition specific board, but the board you turn to when conditions are standard for your mountain, (blue-bird/packed powder/groomers) 08/09 was my burton hero 09/10 I'm trying to decide between my 09 hero, the '10 v-rocker, or an '09/'10 Lib Tech TRS
