3/31/2011 3:22:59 AM Anyone ever just up and loosen the sh!t out their straps and ride?  This an exercise we used in my Advanced Riding clinic, taught by a Level 3 cert. who is running for AASI-Western Division Tech Team (really it covered everything from intro to park to AASI level 3 riding requirements... cause we were all at different levels).  We were practicing an exercise where we loosen our bindings so we had possibly over an inch of lift on our heels and maybe half an inch. We didnt do any runs that went beyond a low blue.  The point of this exercise was to help teach and promote the proper athletic stance and force us to use our legs, ankles and feet to control our board and not depend so much on our bindings.  This an extremely useful thing to practice when you are out riding. It is incredibly useful in helping you learn to use safe body positions to prevent damaging ankle and knee tendons, proper carving technique, increase your board control over all, and is invaluably effective in assisting in learning to ride switch. I kid you not, this a very, very good thing to practice.  However, I do not recommend doing this if you are not an experienced and fairly advanced rider. I also do not recommend using this in the park for it makes landing and balancing very difficult or using it on steeps (upper blue and beyond).  Once you are comfortable in your board control with you bindings super loose, try tightening them up as tight as you normally have them then loosen the a few notches and see how it feels. You might be surprised at the results.
3/27/2011 11:47:06 PM Ok, so many of us have either built our own jumps when a resort is not available or we want some nice freshies to land on. Now if you have photos we want to see them! If you have questions, ask. Now I have a question, I often go out around the areas around my house for some sweet lines when we have the snow, i find a natural mogul or drop and build a nice jump. However, it is extremely labor intensive because I build it by piling and packing snow. It has to be packed enough so it doesnt collapse when i hit it (and powder is hard to pack that hard). I look at the backcountry jumps made by pros and they look very even and almost blocky. Does anyone here know how to create jumps backcountry in this fashion, or at least... more efficiently?
3/3/2011 8:29:22 PM I have seen a few boards around, along with a coworker of mine. From what i can tell they are a very new company. Does anybody know anything about these boards, how they ride, how they hold up, etc?
6/7/2010 2:13:34 AM I had a friend tell me that when the season is over in the northern hemisphere and Snowboard/Ski instructors are out of work, that you can do some kind of "thing" where you go to Chile during the summer and teach private lessons to english-speaking guests at one of the resorts. I was told that you need to save up some cash. Has anyone heard about or done this? How much does it cost, what is the process? Those are the types of questions i would like to have answered if anyone can.
5/25/2010 1:56:59 PM Anyone do it regularly? What did you have? What are your experiences? I did it with shots of vodka... its kinda fun and the feeling of doing turns is really weird because of the dizziness. Doing jumps is the scariest crap, you can get in the air, but once you are up, you loose all balance. 3s worked out, until i got about 30 yards away from the landing and just fell over. Carving doesnt work out too well either. Disclaimer(cause i want one):i do not endorse or encourage drinking and snowboarding, Side effects may include, nausea, dizziness, serious injury or death. Please Drink Responsibly.
5/19/2010 4:43:32 PM What injury do you cause yourself most often when you snowboard? not necessarily the worst, but they could be the same thing. Myself, I most commonly injure bruise my tail bone and my knees, followed up by shoulder damage/injuries.
5/5/2010 12:17:21 PM So i was randomly thinking, what if Sierra had a birthday special for whoever, giving you something cool for your birthday... Say, you send them an email with your name and real birth date, sure you could lie about your birth date to them, but they attach that info to your account so you get that same thing every year. The requirements to receive this could be any number of things to create a precaution, such as you have to be a Ski Bum and up, or whatever. Any idea of what kind of small gifts they could give us? Such as an extra 3 or 5 percent of an order, or just something little like that?
5/2/2010 10:55:54 PM I found this website called http://www.snowboardaddiction.com/ These are in more depth than the vids provided by Sierra Snowboard in the ways of freestyle, covering amost every single base on the map. Not to mention they are headed and created by a sponsored Level 3 Head Snowboard Instructor/Trainer at Whistler with an Aussie accent. Of course, i would recommend beginners to buy a freestyle lesson at their nearest resort, but the high-level information only available super expensive 1 on 1 training is available, though not as thorough, at a much cheaper price. They have a full 5 DVD box set, and free advanced spinning lessons online. Now i figured that though it is expensive, both my whole family and my friends could really use this information, not to mention it would make my winter job easier, it was worth the price.
5/2/2010 4:37:14 PM I have had my Sierra Stunt for about a month now, and it has acquired air bubbles underneath the base (i can press them and the air moves around) The bubbles are a factory/cheap design error since they are wide spread around the edges. Will Sierra be able to replace my board, or am I stuck with this board?
4/23/2010 8:08:48 PM I just got my free Sierra t-shirt coupon, but the only size available is the Small, and i wear a large. Will there be any new ones in 30 days? Or is there away i can get a new coupon if a new shipment arrives after my 30 days? Or am i screwed out of a (proper) t shirt?
4/21/2010 3:42:43 PM I want to know about your laptop standards. What is your favorite brand? What do you own? What do you use your laptop for? Any cool specs on your system? Are you a Mac fan? PC? Why? etc. I just pre-ordered an Asus G73JH-A2 gaming laptop... Xoticpc has great customer service: Check them and the system out if you want http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g73jha2-order-p-2761.html
4/10/2010 6:51:01 PM In the last 2 days iv seen 5 or 6 Sierra boards. Sierra has really been getting around lately, how often do you see them?
4/7/2010 11:47:18 AM I found them for 200$ but i dont know if i should put the money into them... anyone ridden these skis before? (these are the non-rc libtechs) I can also get a pair of Marker 12s and a pair of Nordics for a grand total of 460$ Some help and information about these skis would be appreciated.
4/1/2010 5:08:27 PM The title speaks it all... Personally, Im looking forward to the next Lib Tech Skate Banana Rome Artifact Battalion Evil Twin Academy Rhythm Never Summer Evo-R
