1/25/2013 12:12:42 PM Could you be more specific about what you want to know? It's a derivative of the Burton Guru.  Mid-flex, , traditional camber, slightly tapered powder board.  If you're looking for a park board, this isn't it.  If you're looking for a high speed cruiser or just an all-purpose board then it might work, but you should probably look elsewhere.  If you're looking for a cheap powder board, I'm sure its a great option. And yes, read the reviews.  The ones on this board are quite good.
1/25/2013 11:58:06 AM Maybe mine's just defective?  Dunno, I always just chalked it up to being a cheap kit iron.  Could also be that I don't have the temp cranked up high enough, I tend to keep it closer to the melting point than the smoking point of the wax.
1/25/2013 9:50:28 AM I too have the Dakine one, which apparently everyone else has (appears identical to the cheaper on you posted).  Mine came in a tuning kit.  I've used it probably 50 times and its still going strong.  Heats up quickly and evenly.  My only gripe with it is that it looses heat too fast when in use.  I have to stop a few times while spreading wax to allow the iron to heat back up.  I wish the base were significantly heavier to hold heat longer.  Its not annoying enough for me to get a new iron though.
1/9/2013 10:28:59 AM I have a couple no name fleece neck gators that I'll wear if I really need to, but honestly my neck never seems to get all that cold.  20's or above and I barely even bother zipping my jacket all the way. I will however throw out another thumbs up for the Under Armor hood.  On a cold day it definitely keeps my face from freezing off, as well as providing some wind/snow protection for the skin.  Put that on under my helmet and tuck it into my jacket before zipping the collar and I'm good to go on even the coldest of days. (Edit:  Dammit, never looked at the OP post date.  Didn't meant to help bumping an old post)
2/8/2012 1:04:24 PM Sunny days -> Fire Cloudy/overcast/snowy -> Yellow Nights -> Clear Been meaning to pick up something between fire and yellow for those "mostly clear days".
2/2/2012 9:59:25 AM "Hytner, who was able to remain on her back with her feet pointed downhill, told BCA, 'I felt like I was riding a mattress down the stairs.' " Awesome, so wanna do this when I get home.  Reminds me of when I was a kid and used to ride the laundry basket down the stairs. The air bag is intended to work before you get buried.  If you're already buried, you better have some nearby friends with shovels and beacons.  And if you're smart, a breathing device like an avalung. From what I just read, the idea is you deploy the bag as soon as start a slide and it helps keep you afloat on top of the snow.  Think of it like a boat, where the avalanche slide is displaying fluid-like properties.  The air in the bag is less dense than the snow, so a bag of sufficient volume will provide the necessary buoyancy to keep the rider from getting submerged.  I'd imagine it'd be a lot like white water rafting with an inner-tube tied to you.
2/1/2012 8:27:59 AM One of my phone chargers makes an annoying high pitched whine too.  Really annoying.  I spent about 30 minutes running around my living room trying to figure out what was making that noise, it was driving me nuts.  They're pretty cheap to pick up micro-USB chargers on Amazon, I'd just get a new one.
12/23/2011 10:16:34 AM If you're going to carry it with you all day.  Something light/compact like this: If you can lock it to a rack at the base all day (assuming you'll only ever leave your board on the same rack all day), a more heavy duty bike lock like this: Personally I like combination locks so I don't have to worry about dropping a key on the mountain.  But some will argue that the combination space (especially the 1000 posibilities on the first lock above) isn't enough to stop a thief with enough time.  But really, the lock is just a deterrent to make a potential thief steal someone elses board instead. Also try to find something long enough to lock up a couple boards at once.  Your buddies' will appreciate it.
12/23/2011 9:48:16 AM I would definitely ride that thing.  I think its a pretty awesome graphic.  Definitely unique and creative.  For sure the kind of board that would find itself hanging on my rec room wall after its retired.

12/22/2011 2:10:26 PM I wouldn't say everyone is having a crappy winter, you're just looking in the "obvious" places   Things seem to be going pretty well in the Southwest.  SoCal is looking ok, Vegas has pretty good coverage, as does Northern Arizona, and SW Colorado. Like a moron I planned a New Years trip to Tahoe way too far in advance.  Now I'm headed out there to ride some ribbons of death, when I could just stay home and enjoy the 4ft base at my local mountain.  Sure the terrain isn't as good... but at least its covered and open.  Oh well, at least there's friends and booze.
12/21/2011 10:00:28 AM What?  You mean I'm not supposed to carve by kicking the rear of the board around I suspect most people don't stop to think that toeside is the more powerful edge.  That all your muscles and balance let you use that edge.  While for your heel edge you're mostly relying on the binding's highback for any power. I have no doubt this is a tricky move.  It's basically a 180, at speed, with no kicker, no ollie,  and landing on an edge.  I am curious to try this whenever I have a boring day ahead of me, I sense a day of many falls and great pain.
12/20/2011 3:27:09 PM Chalk up another for Skate Bananas and Park Pickles, they're everywhere.
12/19/2011 9:45:27 AM I've been pondering the same question.  Love my T6, but its taken a beating and will probably be up for replacement by the end of the season.  Sad to see Burton dropped the T7.  I'm looking to checkout the following sometime this year: Neversummer Titan Jones Flagship Lib Tech T-Rice Pro Lib Tech Dark Series
12/14/2011 8:10:39 PM Why do people always do this?  "I need a board/boots/bindings.  What should I get?"  If there were a universal answer to those questions, there wouldn't be such a large number of products on the market.  There's a lot of personal preference that goes into bindings, if you have some specifics that you're looking for (or even what you like in a binding) I'm sure people can provide some suggestions.  Otherwise you might as well just search the forum for any other time someone has asked this question. Lets start here: Do you like the s90s? Yes:  - Why don't you want another pair?  - What did you like about them that could lead to a similar pair? No:  - What about them did you dislike that you should avoid in your next pair?
