6/16/2014 3:54:07 AM Hey guys, I saw this a couple of months ago and thought it was a hoax at first. Turns out it is legit and it has just gone onto kickstarter for its funding, called HEXO+ 37 minutes in and it reached its goal of $50,000. Last time i checked it was past $100,000...  Its pretty much a quad/multicopter that you can attach a gimbal and Gopro and it'll follow you around filming you. Pretty sweet idea for videos and mash ups (hint, hint Spencer ).  From what i've read it connects with your phone via app and will track your phone location, following it the way you want. So not only does it follow but can pace ahead of you filming backwards or pan across. Pretty sweet gadget if you ask me.  Now draw back is that its battery lasts 15 minutes tops (similar to the DJL phantom) and that it doesn't have obstacle detection/avoidance, so it'll probably have to follow you closely where there's heaps of obstacles (no tree run aerial shots ) Their videos don't seem to show too much footage of it flying or footage from the copter it self but it does look promising. John Jackson and Xavier De Le Rue are ambassadors for it!!! Now best part is the price compared to what other multicopters in the market. I think the cheap one (think theres only 1 model atm) is going for $600 but doesn't come with the gopro.  https://www.facebook.com/hexoplus/timeline
4/25/2014 4:26:29 AM Hey guys,So i wanted to ask a few questions with how to improve on riding and a board choice to suit me! :D Just a heads up that i'm not the best at explaining thing. So sorry and thank you in advance.  I've been boarding for a few years on and off now (taking time off work is hard) and probably have only 20 days of riding under my belt in 4 years. I'm 188cm and around 68kg, size 11.5 boots riding 15/12 for stance on my Flow Verve 154cm W (Rome 390 Boss bindings). I can hit up Green and Blue runs over in South New Zealand comfortably, no carving but i believe its solid riding with some good turns and control. I've been picking up my speed in the last trip but no where as quick as regular riders and getting solid control over switch riding. I found myself loving to ride natural terrain tracks especially with loads of bumps. I've started to hit up rails and jibs and also a few smaller kickers. Now, with my riding i've found that higher speeds, my board seems to rattle a noticeable amount and I have to put a bit more effort into holding lines and initiating turns, flailing my back arm at times (i know, super uncool...). any tips on how to keep better control at higher speeds and flailing my back hand a little less? or is it just a practice and confidence thing?  When starting off on kickers, should I pop off it with an ollie or simply pushing my weight up off the lip? Also with my landings, i seem to only stick half of them. Not sure what I am doing wrong (and i know its a bit hard to advise without seeing footage) but should i be landing flat to the landing or with slightly more weight to the back foot? Lastly, is the board suited for what I am doing/enjoying? I really like the Flow verve but i wouldn't mind buying another board. Any recommendations?  Thanks guys. 
3/13/2012 4:25:59 AM Hey guys.  Planning to taking a holiday to Queenstown New Zealand around late August, early September for 2 weeks to board.  I've been to Nz once, Methven, Mt Hutt on my first snowboarding experience but was very short and sweet. All of it was organised through a travel center and I'd like to orgnaise my own trip this time. (Planned my trip to Japan, Hakuba in 2011 but ihad a lot of help from Ippy). So anyway. I just wanted to get as much info on Queenstown as i could. As i said before, 2 weeks there Late Aug/Early sept with a friend. This wouldn't be too late would it? Should be around peak season right? Which are the best mountains to go to? Beginner/intermediate level, wanting to try out a bit more park. Is the mountain subject to close at often as Mt Hutt does with wild weather and all?  Wanted to stay in a decent/cheap backpackers hotel. Any recommendations?  Also Planning on car rental, Australia licence Green P plater, but 21 years of age. Should be good with a international licence right?  Wanted to rent the car for the whole 14 days and was wondering if i should just rent a basic car or a AWD/4x4 to go up mountains. Or if there is any better alternatives. Cheaper would be better obviously. haha.  I'll do more research as the time get closer but just wanted a head start on the research.  Thanks in advance to all. 
3/6/2011 7:52:38 AM Hey guys.Around late June, early July, I was thinking of heading to Patong Beach in Thailand for around 2 weeks with my Girlfriend. I haven't started my research on what to do yet, although i plan too but I was wondering if anyone else had been there and could recommend things/activities for a young couple to do. Also if anyone has any warnings about Thailand, scams and rumors etc, It would be greatly appreciated if you could post some information.  Thanks in advance.
11/30/2010 2:47:13 AM Hey guys If you want a chance to win a Gopro with all their accessories head to their website. You don't have to buy anything just fill in a few lines of info. And its worldwide!!! http://www.goprocamera.com/contest/?utm_source=gopro&utm_medium=tab&utm_campaign=dailywinall  While your at it, check out the video on their home page :D
10/19/2010 4:05:10 AM Hey guys. Once again, Im bugging you guys with help for advice. :DSo for the next season I am planning to hit up Japan, Hakuba in early-mid February. Currently i have - Sierra Crew 157w with Burton custom bindings, Flow rift Coiler 2 zone boots- Flow Verve, Currently not in use till i begin park. - 686 Plexus Zenith softshell and Burton Cargo Pants I wanted to grab a second set of Outerwear so i could lend my current set to my friend, plus it'll help if i have spare in the future, plus new binders. I was planning to grab and wanted to know if they would be suitable.  - Rome 390's to go with my Sierra CrewWill this be suitable bindings for a beginner (Boarded once for 3days, Progressing on S-turns) and for the board. Or I could use these with the Verve.  - Rome cardova 3L pantsHas anyone owned or tried these?  - Sessions Atlas, OrangeI love the colour scheme, Has anyone tried these? If so how were they? Also if there are any other High Waterproofed jacket out there that you could recommend that would be awesome. (love the Bright colour schemes, Eg. Sessions Ignitions Orange.  -Dakine Split roller smallWill this be suitable for any kind of travel? Ive seen one in person and think its great but will it fit enough clothing for 7days snowboarding/casual wear? Or should i just find a normal suit case? Thanks heaps in advance for advice. Its just that many of the products don't have detailed reviews on them.
7/28/2010 7:51:34 AM Hey guys Ive been browsing through ebay a lot and i notice heaps of gear on there that are probably from Sierra. Which is not really surprising... I don't mind the whole bulk buy from here and then try making a few dollars later down the track from silly Ebay buyers who don't do their research. BUT i believe that this is wrong --> People who use images and information from the Sierra Website and post it up as their own. As an example - http://stores.ebay.com.au/WakeB-BB-X-Sport-Store Is this allowed?
7/24/2010 1:34:08 AM Hey guys. Im looking at getting a point and shoot camera, since no-one in the household does... Ive been checking a few cameras and the ones that have come across my attention with price and stats etc are 1. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1, $205 2. Canon PowerShot A3100 IS, $205 3. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310 $160 Im not very knowledgeable when it comes to Cameras, so i was hoping some people in the community with some camera knowledge could help me. I will be using this camera i buy for the slopes, camping trips and general use. Id like the camera with a better battery life and quality photos thou the stats and features are the pretty much same. Im not too fussed with the Video feature as i have a Contour HD. Thanks
7/2/2010 3:58:38 AM Hey guys. Early 2011, around Jan - Feb im planning to go for a snow trip. I wanted to try out Japan or Canada but dont know which one i should head over to. Ive been searching up prices and it seems like Japan and Canada both have similar prices. So that doesnt really matter. I was thinking Japan - Niseko or Canada - Whistler only because ive heard good things about them. So i just wanted to know. Which would you guys prefer / recommend? It doesnt have to be just out of the 2 resorts but mainly out of the 2 countrys. I dont plan to site see or anything, just board. Im yet to start snowboarding with my first season coming up in late July for 6days at Mt Hutt. So my experience level will be pretty low. I dont plan to do any park anytime soon. Just a few things id like to know with your recommendations  - Which resort  - Why  - When i should head over Thanks
6/26/2010 7:12:37 AM Hey guys, Ive been searching for a good backpack to use on the slopes and i have found out that "Everyone" recommends a Dakine heli pro. i was gonna buy one but sierra is currently out of stock of both 16L and 20L models. Plus the fact that on other place has prices like here, im not prepared to spend much. (got to save more for my trip) So, i was wondering if i could buy a Womens Dakine heli pro and still not have any troubles. i have read that its been made to fit a womens figure.. soo i didnt know if it would suit me. I dont mind the design / colours so im not fussed about that and it seems to have pretty much the same features as the heli pro DLX. im 188cm and a very slim built male btw. thanks
6/10/2010 6:12:19 AM Hey guys, i just bought my first snowboarding Dvd, "That's it, That's all" by quicksilver and redbull, staring Travis rice and an appearance from Jeremy Jones. (Since i only just got into snowboarding, there the only ones i recognised) Anyway, it was soooo dam good i watched it 3x in a row. As much as i enjoy Youtube vids, this was spectacular. Recommend it to anyone who hasnt seen it. Just would like to know if theres any sweet Dvd titles out there that yo guys have seen and would recommend. Thanks
6/8/2010 3:55:03 PM Hey guys, I just received my Sierra Crew in the mail. Yay!! anyway, i just wanted to know if i had to do anything in particular. Like, a tuning or de-tuning or something?? I am going to take my board into the local shop for a waxing anyway, but if theres anything else i should do, id like to know thanks :D This will be my first time snowboarding, heading to Mt Hutt NZ. I want to do Freeride. Not sure if this info might help :S Thanks in advance.

5/29/2010 12:23:32 AM hey guys, I know that theres been heaps of thread about board size questions and ive posted up my question in the past but its never been answered. So i made my own thread. Now that ive got enough money and the crew is back on the staff picks. Im gonna pull the trigger on it but im not sure what size to buy. Me - 188cm, 6'2"         63kg, 138.6lbs         US 12 boots with large bindings         Set up on the bindings, i have found that 21, -12 is the most comfortable for me.         edit** Total beginner, wanting to do basic maneuvers and do free ride later on. I was thinking of buying the 156 crew but im not sure if i should get the 157w because of my feet, in saying that my binding set up is pretty angled. I also hear that wide boards arnt the best for the beginners because the response is less then normal boards. Any input would be great, and Thanks in advance
5/28/2010 1:20:08 AM Just a few Questions for you guys. Ive never been to the snow so im not sure what to wear. Snowboarding gear wise i have everything BUT im not sure what your ment to wear in town. just a few items that i need help with. What kind of shoes do you wear? obviously you cant just wear normal sneakers right? Can you wear jeans without getting uncomfortable? sorry for these silly questions but im really stumped XD Thanks in advance
