||if you had the nerve to learn/attempt a new snowboard maneuver which would it be: front flip, or a spin (no matter what the revolutions). I'm leaning towards a front flip off a small ramp of minimul proportions in POW (hopefully). Granted with the right amount of liquid courage, all things are possible. I believe strongly in the statement, "scared money don't make money" but I'd like to hear all opinions.

||I think the only thing missing from the advice is HYDRATION! You need to hydrate before, during, and after riding. I ride with a camel pack full of water.

||Inception was an awesome movie in 2010. I wish I watched it in 3D, that would've been even better!

||This is the best site/community. I joined this community at the end of the last season (my first season). Since then, I've purchased My Sierra Crew (amazing board by the way), flow bindings, spy goggles, a board tool, and recently a new set of ride bindings, and a board bag. I've even picked up items for friends and they've joined as members as well because of the great selection of goods and service. Glad you stuck around.

||If she's never ridden a board specific for males, you should probably let her rent one that's the size she wants to ride. It will allow her to experience, first hand, what everyone is saying (stiffer, more responsive, wider). If she still wants to go that route after riding one, you'll probably feel a little better laying down the cash for it.

||Giro makes helmets that allow you to use the skull candy 'tune-up' inserts. If they have the goggles at the store that you eventually want to scoop, talk the sales rep into letting you try them on while you're shopping for your helmet.

||So I didn't get the Freestyles. The input from this blog was extremely helpful in my decision. I opted to go with the 2010 Ride EX Bindings (purchased on this website). I had Ride LX bindings on my first board and they were awesome. These bindings will be for my 'rock board' (unless they're worth sitting down in the snow to strap up), so the cheap price for a convertible toe strap and the 1.5 wedgie footpads was a no-brainer. Thanks again for the input.

||I'll take the second option, best mountain, best conditions. I've ran through my fair share of women and I'm married now so the orgy would just make me homeless and poor. lol

||Its about time but I'm not switching. If I really want an iPhone, I'll get an unlocked one for T-Mobile. But even still, I have a MyTouch 4G and it does everything the iPhone can do + some. Video chat doesn't need to be connected to wifi and I can tether my phone to my laptop via the wifi hotspot app (and that is a built in feature of the phone). Also, T-Mobile doesn't charge you extra if you want to use your phone as a modem. Sorry Apple and Verizon, too little, too late.

||Dude, I work in Los Alamos (FD)! We'll definitely have to get together and ride. That's one mountain I haven't ridden yet, oddly enough. Shoot me an email next time you plan to ride and hopefully I can meet up with you. There's a few guys at my station that ride as well. email@example.com

||I learned my lesson this past Sunday @ Wolf Creek (85+ inches of snow). It took me a half-hour or so to hike out of some pow that was up to my mid thigh (I'm 6'2''). I'm staying out of powder with that's higher than 35 inches. Better safe than sorry. "Stay ready so you don't have to get ready" -Suga Free
