2/27/2009 1:36:11 PM I'll be at bear creek tomorrow with a buddy and my girlfriend. If you want to meet up, send me a PM here and i'll give you my cell # to text.
2/22/2009 3:19:31 AM So, I'm going to be customizing some new crowbars and I can't decide if I want to polarize the lenses or not. Basically, polarizing adds $50-$75 to the goggles depending on the lens. For east coast riding, mostly afternoon, is it worth it to spend extra on the polarization?

2/11/2009 9:55:04 AM I'm wearing it right now as I type this post.  Just saying.
2/10/2009 10:09:15 AM Sadly, i need to part with my 32 Lashed boots.  My feet are just too narrow for them, and I get too much heel lift. Ashame, these boots are sooooo comfortable and light.   These boots have been used 1 day only, they are in perfect condition (other then some dirt) Send any offers to me via PM  I will also trade these for red union forces L/XL
2/10/2009 6:24:23 AM Maybe the hottest SI Cover Model ever?
2/8/2009 11:09:32 AM Let me preface this post by saying I'm still playing with stances/angles and i'm still a beginner, and I have union forces on the way because i'm not entirely digging flow's So, I took my dark series out yesterday for the first time and after my first couple runs which were fine, i started to notice that I wasn't getting any response out of my back foot.  (I ride regular) when I would lean back on my back leg  to bring my back foot in front I would just feel the board sort of dragging behind me, and i'd have to YANK my back foot forward forcefully to get the board at a perpendicular angle to slow down.  This obviously caused me to catch more edges and fall a lot more. I thought this might be my boots or bindings being too loose on the back foot, so i tightened everything up but to no avail.  I'm just thinking perhaps duck isn't for me? This is my current setup: I'm 5'9 Regular +15/-15 Standard width i think (picture below) Lib Dark Series 158 Flow NXT-AT Can anyone suggest better angles maybe that would allow me to get more response out of my back foot?  Setup picture below:
2/5/2009 7:42:05 PM So i've got a mazda 6 sedan, relatively standard size im wondering what the best way to transport two 158 boards, as I dont have a rack yet. They are like 3cm too long to lay across my back seat, i was thinking of moving my passenger seat all the way back and leaning them against it from the floor. What do you guys do assuming you dont have a rack?
2/4/2009 7:26:26 PM I recently picked these up from a staff member here at sierra, and i like them a lot but I have another pair in white and I'd really like to get a pair of red forces to play with. They've been ridden approx 5 times total.  Almost perfect condition, just a few scratches that are to be expected with some trips down the mountain. Just seeing if there's any interest in these binders. Send me a PM with any offers.
2/4/2009 7:07:01 PM Just noticed you can customize your own goggle on oakley's site. It's actually pretty reasonable priced, as you can customize an A-Frame or Crowbar for around $110 shipped, give or take what accessories/lens you choose. Has anyone done this?
2/3/2009 10:14:48 AM So, need some recommendations on gloves, since im on the beast coast there will never really be spring snowboarding so they will need to keep me toasty :) I'm not a fan of mittens, so i do require fingers for texting on the mountain (yay iPhone) Other than that, i dont really have any pre-requisites, although if they are sexy looking that is a bonus.  I've found a bunch of gloves on this site that I like but in the reviews they practically all say no good for really cold temperatures. Thanks in advance!
2/2/2009 7:52:35 PM So, i picked up a pair of extremely lightly used flow nxt-at's and it seems like one of the holes on one of the plates must be stripped, because the screw will not catch no matter what I try I dont want to ride with only 3 screws on my back foot, is it possible to buy replacement plates?  Anyone know where?  I don't see much info on Flow's site and my local shop doesn't sell flow, nor do they carry extra plates.  (So the sales rep said) Any thoughts?
2/1/2009 2:37:30 PM Purchased this here from another forum member -  new with tags for $150 shipped, however it doesn't fit me the way I'd like it to .  Looking to deal it for $150 shipped as well, not trying to make a profit. It's been tried on once, still has tags and all the burton stickers that came with it. Will possibly consider trades for other gear too.  PM me with what you have, I'd be interested in goggles (oakley) bindings (union) but i'll take a look at anything Thanks!
1/31/2009 12:07:18 PM Someone is selling a pair of slightly used 07 Hails on craigslist for $40 - are they worth it? Im a relatively beginner rider, so I'm really just looking for comfort/all mountain at this point.
1/29/2009 2:35:43 PM Purchased a Burton 3L Sqwawk on here, XL and it turned out to be too big. Looking for any recommendations on a good shell or does anyone have one for sale?  Preferably burton but i'm open to whatever.  Will need a Large or X-Large depending on the jacket. Lemme know!
