2/7/2011 3:44:24 PM My sister (age 31) lives in Florida and naturally, has had to go to the doctor. Check out the first two questions on one of the health forms (picture 1). And an odd question to ask for an appointment regarding allergies (picture 2).
2/7/2011 10:21:11 AM This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long, long time. And BTW, I would have picked #3 as well.
11/15/2010 5:48:01 PM The whole process seems pretty time consuming, which is why I was ok paying $10 for a hot wax at my local shop. But everyone keeps saying how easy it is. It sounds pretty labor intensive and messy! The only reason I decided to start trying it myself is because the last time we took our boards in to get waxed (a few weeks ago) they both came back with gouges on the topsheet. I don't know if it has to do with how they clamped the board down, but we were not too happy about it.
11/15/2010 5:14:13 PM I've decided to start waxing my board myself. I Googled "how to wax a snowboard" and read about 10 sets of directions, and watched a few videos and they're all slightly different. Can someone confirm the following? Items needed:- Iron (I have an old one that I don't care about ruining)- Scraper (is metal or plastic better?)- Wax (I'll buy an all temp wax)- Cleaning brush - I've seen nylon, metal, and some people say to use wire pads from Home Depot. Is one type of brush better than another? Nylon vs wire? Also, one site said just to use a cloth. (I know there are other items like drop cloths, table setup, etc....I'm excluding those items for now and just focusing on the "tools" needed.) My last question is about cleaning/prepping the board. I've read to use anything from base cleaner to alcohol to kerosine for this step. What is the correct cleaner and procedure for this? Do you have to do it every time you wax your board? I'm thinking about buying this - it looks like it has everything. Maybe I could save some money buying just the few items I need, but I like that this comes in one convenient kit. I'm not sure though because it looks like it's more for tuning than waxing.http://www.trusnow.com/Dakine-Deluxe-Snowboard-Tune-Kit.asp Lastly, it would be great to see this video working!!http://www.trusnow.com/snowboard-videosub.asp?vid=314&cat=gear
10/29/2010 12:14:24 PM Today is 15 degrees warmer than it was last week in SoCal. Last week was cold and rainy, this week is highs in the 80s.
10/29/2010 9:24:58 AM I try not to save favorites like snowboard retail sites on my work computer. 
10/29/2010 9:17:55 AM Today was my first day that I broke the habit of typing www.sierrasnowboard.com. Though I like the Sierra name, Trusnow is definitely quicker to type. =)
10/27/2010 3:59:01 PM I'll still buy from Sierra, but I just put in an order with 2 other online retailers, both included Burton gear, one at 40% off and the other at 62% off. I can find 20+ online retailers selling Burton below "allowed" prices. The only reason I can think that Sierra got stopped is because their volume was higher, more advertising/visibility of the Sierra brand, and they discounted earlier in the season than most other retailers. Sucks for the consumer, but what can you do? 
10/27/2010 9:12:21 AM Not on most brands. Read Doug's posts in this thread. They answer these types of questions.

10/25/2010 5:32:27 PM Oh...sorry for the confusion. If the men's stuff tends to run long I would assume the women's does too. I'm on the site now checking it out. I like the women's "snuggler" pant. It looks like there are a few shops near me that carry Airblaster, too!
10/25/2010 5:13:50 PM Ditto...I'm almost 5'9", 26" waist, and a 32" inseam...I have yet to find a pair of pants that are long enough without looking like MC Hammer pants from the waist to the knees. [/QUOTE]   Two words: Air, blaster.   I wear 32/36 in jeans, and that's cuz I can get them in stores.  Should probably wear something like a 30 for a waist or something, but then I'd have to special order them.  Anywho, I get the 32 waist and they hang just slightly lower than where they "should" be, I guess.  Not saggin' like a homosexual g either.  The 'Blaster pants seem to fit me perfect in a size large.  Waist is actually a little bigger than I'd like, but I can adjust them with the velcro/elastic waistband and wearing padded shorts underneath helps fill them out quite nicely as well.  With a 32" inseam you should definitely try on a medium and see what you think.[/QUOTE] It's worth mentioning that I'm female.  A 30" waist would fall down to my ankles.
10/25/2010 3:33:04 PM Ditto...I'm almost 5'9", 26" waist, and a 32" inseam...I have yet to find a pair of pants that are long enough without looking like MC Hammer pants from the waist to the knees.
10/25/2010 3:21:31 PM So I know it's a little early in the season (i.e. the season hasn't really started yet), but I'm wondering if anyone knows of shops in the Los Angeles area that wax snowboards. I know of... 9star - does a great job, but often a long turn around time Sports Chalet- quick-ish turnaround, but only an OK job Sports Authority - $20, which seems really expensive ValSurf - in the valley -> too far Excluding the big "chain" stores (e.g. Sports Chalet, Sports Authority, etc.) I find it hard to believe there are only one or two shops in all of LA that wax boards! Suggestions please (other than doing it myself).
