||So... does any one know where/how you can get your boot inner lace lock replaced?I've got a good pair of boots, but the plastic lock on the inner laces seem to always loosen, no matter which way I tighten and tuck it. I keep feeling my heel lift alot more after a bit. I'd appreciate any tips that can help to keep that lock tightened..... anyone?

||..... I mean, there's so many different types..... Horse hair? What? Do? You ? Use? That? For? I mean.. isn't waxing as easy as base clean, wax, wait, scrape, use scotchbrite? (Hell most times I just skip the scotchbrite part! Is that bad?) Why all these different type of brushes? Talk to me ppls!

|| I've got a pair of DC Serum that I'd like to sell off It's my first pair of boots and has only seen less than 20 odd days in the snow. It's in excellent condition, especially on the inside. However, the outside, especially the right boot has seen some scraping on the top, since I had the n00b habit of resting my snowboard on top of it when I started, which I've since stopped. I've shoe goo'ed those area to prevent it wearing more. Pics to come, and I'm happy to throw in a spare pare of laces in the mix.I'm thinking about $150? And I'm located in Victoria. Lemme know if interested.

||Hey guys, Just looking for a bit of help here... I've got a Sierra Stunt 158 that's delamed under warranty, and I've contacted TruSnow who referred me to the House, for warranty and they want me to ship the board back. Now.. I got the board for $175US, and shipping it back would cost me $210 via pack and send, $300ish via Fed Ex.Obviously AustPost won't send it as it's over the length it requires to get it send. Does anyone know how I can get this send over on a budget to the US? I mean.. I don't mind paying for it, but having it cost more than the board is just silly. And before anyone asks, yes I have sent pics and even a video of the delam (air bubbles moving at the bottom of the board.) and they still want it sent for warranty, which is fsking ridiculous, as I've now had 2 number of items shtook up on me under warranty which won't get replaced. (Had a dakine lock that broke under warranty, but they can't send a replacement due to shipping rules at dakine. Nice. ) Anyways, any help anyone?

|| Posted this on EL but also figgered I might try to get some opinions here: Just wanted to get some ideas of celsius boots, esp of people who has worn them. How are they? Good? Bad? How's their arch support? (I have flat feet so I might need to get a footbed for them...) What does the feel compare to? Burton? DC's? I don't see much of them in Australia and I do want a pair of boots for my Japan trip, options aren't too big here...

||Hey Guys, Just wanted to check what people's opinions are on the below iron if I wanted to use it to wax snowboards. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220613615324&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT The reason I ask it 'coz I'll be travelling o/s so having a multi-volt iron would be great.Just wanted to see if it'd run hot enough as it only goes to 150 deg.....

||Hi, I got these from my first time snowboarding that I won't use anymore... and they're okay to start with. Gloves have an inner lining, and has thinsulate. Used only for 1 weekend about 7 years ago. black in color. Same with the pants... M in size when I was a 32, now I'm a 34 which is an L, this one is beige, and has cargo pockets. Brand is rainbird, bought it from the disposal store a while back. Served me quite well actually. I'm located in Vic around the SE 'burbs. Tend to go to the city on the weekend so I'm happy to drop it off to someone.

||Leave it? Send it down a little?Get repaired @ a shop? It's on the stunt, and after the first day of riding it too! =( It's not too big, it just seems deep..... Thanks for your advice guys and gals...

||Hi guys, Just a quick Q: On snowboard pants gaiters or cuffs, you have a little velcro with metal clip/hook on the side of them. I'm not actually too sure what they are for, so can anyone enlighten me? I've been trying to figger out what they can hook on to..... Thanks in advance.

||So....... insurance. I've been lookin' around at it for my trip to QT in Aug. Just wondering what people reccomend in that department, specifically for 'boarding and 'boarding related accidents.... good? Bad? cheap? nasty? Any reccomendations or avoidance of certain companies? AFAIK I should be looking for a ski/snow specific insurer for this kind of stuff..... Had a look at Medibank insurance and they seem okay, as long as I'm not doing any kind of extreme sports.. (perhaps then heliboarding is out.) So yeah... any tips on this fellow Aussies?

||Hey guys, Just wanted some reccomendations on a camera that's good for snow. And by camera I mean just your pocket point and shoot. I've got a Canon Ixus, but after being freshly charged, it only goes for about 3 shots or so in the snow before it dies. The girlfriend's newer fuji had only 1 shot in before it dies. Any recomendation on good cameras to take? Preferably one with a video function (most of them have this anyways) so I can film how I stack noobishly on the board.. :P
