12/21/2012 10:42:48 PM Wow Eaglecrest looks beautiful. My friends just left for Heavenly this weekend to ride through the storm - so jealous!
11/28/2011 12:43:08 PM What the heck. Everyone uses such big bags. I have a 155 board, and a 155 bag, and the bindings and boots fit in there just fine...
11/28/2011 12:38:26 PM Keep in mind it's also really freaking messy. I used to wax in my old apartment and realized it was a huge hassle. Unless you have a garage or are willing to do it outdoors somehow, you have to lay down newspaper all over. You also have to have good ventilation, otherwise you get pretty light headed from the fumes. Brushing also makes stupid tiny wax dust particles fly all over the place. It's a pain to clean, especially if your house is carpeted.
11/26/2011 7:58:06 AM True, kikko, but you're comparing price to preferences. Sure I would take a crappy soft binding over a nice stiff binding any day, but I would probably take the Contact SL's over the Contacts... Spending more money obviously won't guarantee you better stuff, but you can usually get better stuff with more money.
11/25/2011 8:26:44 AM Yeah but I feel like it was always like that. I just picked up some Ride Belltown pants for 89$... sweeeeet.
11/25/2011 8:19:25 AM You should probably take the bindings off... If you don't, you'll eventually get dimples in your base from the screws expanding. Or at least loosen them.
11/11/2011 6:48:53 AM "step-in (shit) bindings" lol. Mmm. I feel like the reason he clipped his highbacks was because the space left by the highback would make the fit of his boot in the binding different. I can't imagine riding with your boot right up against the heel cup without getting... heel drag? Or was it really just to force him to commit?
11/11/2011 6:31:03 AM +1 for the Bern Watts. It's a pretty sweet helmet. I never had the problem with foam flattening out, but it might be something to think about?
11/10/2011 8:51:57 AM The standards for roominess and comfort in a car are going up. They used to just be straight-up methods of transporting you from one place to the next. Now you have to be comfortable sleeping in them. ... Well... at least that's what I looked for in a car. Lol.
11/9/2011 1:48:55 PM Whoa there, chill. That was pretty rude. The radiation problem in Japan is a complex non-linear diffusion-advection-population network problem. There are essentially three factors that need to go into your model - wind, water, and food. The media focus has been on the first method exclusively, and it is undoubtedly not a problem - the radiation you receive is on the scale of ~50 nGy/h in Japan, which means that if I spent about 3-4 months in Hokkaido, I'd receive as much radiation as I would if I took one round trip plane flight to Japan. It's of the same order of magnitude, so I'd say this is basically negligible. However, the radiation spread was obviously not due exclusively to gas pressure release, but also propagated by dumping radioactive coolant into the ocean. While, advection and diffusion of the radioactive particles has probably diluted the concentration of radioactive material in the surrounding area, this model doesn't include assimilation of these particles into the biomass of surrounding aquatic wildlife, which will last for a very long time, considering the half-life of Cesium is about 30 years (?). This means contaminated food, water, etc, and in much higher concentrations than you'd get from an airplane flight. And, if you don't believe me, look it up - the mass media has some slight coverage of this. It's just not as well publicized, probably to preserve tourist activity to Japan or something. So yes, I'm not going to Japan because of the radiation. And my friends are not fools.
11/8/2011 12:37:40 PM Haha thanks guys. That helps a lot. I'm planning on trying on some Vans Aura's or some of the DC boots, because they tend to have the least forward lean. I'll def check out the Nike ZF1's too. They look like they'd work.
11/8/2011 8:58:32 AM I know this is counterintuitive, but has anyone done this before? I injured both my tendons 6 months ago, and I think I have to get stiff boots to be able to snowboard again, but all I do is park and butters all day. Any workarounds/suggestions for boots or bindings that might help? Thanks!
11/8/2011 8:37:19 AM Holy crap Piranha. If I were you I would've gone ape shit. Or at least passive aggressively gotten them kicked out of the resort.
11/8/2011 8:35:10 AM Man, I was planning on going, but my friends convinced me not to because of the radiation. If you go, you gotta get one of those 011 Artistic boards. They are soooo flexy. And pick up one for me. Lol.
11/8/2011 8:33:58 AM Pool flips all day. Or pick up skateboarding to work on skate-style tricks. Personally, I've been stuck in a cast though, so... I've been mostly practicing via Shaun White Snowboarding for PS3.
