3/23/2011 9:09:06 AM Haha...*ouch*...hope it was a good one for you anyway.
3/23/2011 9:02:27 AM I've always worn a leash, and now it's really just a habit - I really don't see it as a problem even though it's been many years since anyone's checked.
3/22/2011 11:31:41 AM It's definitely been a kind of weird season so far weather-wise, but you really never know.  The temps could still drop and we could get more snow....
3/22/2011 11:28:03 AM Or maybe you can try looking for the pants on eBay or something like that - lots of late-season deals to be found all over the place now.
3/22/2011 11:23:45 AM Make sure your board is placed properly on the snow and pointing toward the direction you want to go.  Place your back/free foot on the board so that it is kind of pressing against the back binding for some extra support.  Then just stand up - just standing up is probably the best advice I ever got on this topic.
3/7/2011 4:42:56 PM Ugh...I got one too.  I can't believe scammers are here too....  Can someone remove his/her account?
3/7/2011 4:39:03 PM You should probably try them both on to see which one fits your head better.  All things being equal otherwise, I also prefer the soft ear flap/liner type.
3/7/2011 4:30:47 PM It is really no fun boarding in the rain - you get pretty wet and miserable pretty quickly (I love it when it is snowing though :)).  Some resorts will even shut down when it is raining hard enough.
3/7/2011 4:25:33 PM Dogfunk is a good company; I've ordered a lot of stuff from them.  I'd say just go with wherever is cheaper - that's just kind of how things go these days.
3/7/2011 4:21:00 PM I tried one of the new Burton "Flying-V" rocker boards this year and really liked it.  Edges still felt pretty "catch free" like you'd expect on a rockered board, but the board gripped ice/hardpack much better and was more responsive.
3/6/2011 7:21:38 PM Think I did okay with my season pass this year - not great, but okay so far, and it also will depend on how the weather goes the rest of the season.
3/6/2011 7:14:09 PM Rain...blah....
3/6/2011 6:52:37 PM You *definitely* need to buff the wax with either a brush or scotchbrite pad after you scrape it to break up the surface tension that would cause you to be stuck to the snow and go really slow.  Depending on the snow conditions, you may just want to buff in a linear fashion from tip to tail or perhaps create a "cross-hatch" pattern going diagonally both ways on the base. As for whether or not it is necessary to wax a brand new board, it is really up to you.  New boards usually come with a factory wax that isn't necessarily the greatest, but should be fine for a day or two on the slopes.  I personally always wax a new board before taking it out for the first time, but that's just me, and I enjoy doing it.
3/6/2011 6:38:58 PM If all the stickers are still on the board and there are no signs that bindings have been mounted on the board, then it should be brand new.  It's pretty late in the season now, so 30%-off Burton boards is pretty normal and a decent deal.  Even though the edges are stainless steel, they can and do rust a bit sometimes - that's why I always wipe down my board at the end of the day.  All that said, a little bit of surface rust is really no big deal - you can either polish it off with a gummy stone if you are worried or just ride it and it will probably just come off.
3/6/2011 6:25:45 PM No - please don't.  IMHO that is a *horrible* fashion trend for men....
