||I like the new system. Seems like Tru snow is thinking of us. Long may you grow and prosper!

||Make sure you have a newer keyboard (one that can tilt away from you. Wrist rest up numbers down). It,s way more comfortable for your wrists.

||Can't we all just get along?

||Great! Thanks for the selection. Now please bring your shipping costs into reality.

|| Great idea. Never thought of that! Nobody is going to break a lock just to take the lock and then you don't have to carry it around.

||Great idea. Never thought of that! That way you never have to carry it around and nobody is going to break a lock just to steal the lock.

||Cable locks are designed to be strong yet light weight and easy to carry. To heavy and you won't take it with you and use it. They are designed to stop the "walk buy and swipe" thief. Most thieves will take an unprotected board if they have a choice. Keep your board in a very visable area around many people and you have a better chance of safety. I know most people hate a thief and would jump the jerk trying to lift a board. I would.

||I agree. There is no difference in a men's/women's board. It's based on weight, height, flex, design, and riding stile. Choose a board that works for your needs. Even men have limited choices in board graffics and design depending on size. If I want a Reverse Crew in a 151 I have one graffic choice and that's it. You might be able to get a custom design but you'll have to pay much more.

||how tall are you and how much do you weigh? Those are your main concerns.

||I wear the Burton Arctic. It's well made, has the right amount of insulation and features, and fits well. Buy what works for you. Don't buy because of price. This is equipment that you will wear for awhile and is important for your function and comfort. Buying something that dosn't work for you is wasteing what you spent. Don't be foolish. Spending to much is almost as bad (but at least you usually get a product will do the job, you just waste money). I'm a firm believer in "Best Bang For The Buck". Wait for sales (black friday(day after Thanksgiving), end of the year clearence (March 1st). Good luck.

||I ride the DC Judges. I like them alot. They fit like a glove, easy to get on and off, great support, light weight, well made. The boa system is guarrenteed for life. Look good too. Bought mine at Amazon only because sierra didn't have them at the time. They don't cook breakfast though. What else can you want?

||I,m glad I haven't lost my go to place for snow stuff. This is a great place to learn about equipment and gear. Everyones opinion is helpful.

||Diy is best. It will be cheaper over time after you absorb the cost of the equipment. you will also wax more often(which you should do anyway). you go faster, have more control, and protect the base if you keep it well waxed. You also get to choose the wax you use. Fluoroinated waxes are generally better and last longer. 2 things, don't run your iron to hot or hold it in one place to long (keep it moving or you'll burn the base). Edge tuning and base repair take a little longer to learn and you may want to take it to a shop for that (you only do it when you damage your board). Just take good care of your equipment and it'll take care of you!

||Like they said. Try the GoPro. Check out "thefind.com" it will find you the best price. (It's a search engine)

||Burton Cartels go well with the Reverse Crew.
