12/13/2010 2:37:32 AM Falls is pretty tame and quite small too. I'd be going to Thredbo if it were me
12/13/2010 2:36:03 AM I visited for one day only, so can't really give you an in-depth review, but the village is freaking tiny and I think there is only one pub. Catch a taxi down the road to Vernon if you wanna get wild. If I were you I would have done three weeks at Big White instead
12/7/2010 6:18:49 PM I wear one but had a huge amount of trouble finding one that fits my gargantuan head. I managed to find XXL in a shop discount bin that actually fitted comfortably, so I snapped it up. But on days here in Aus when the sun is out and the temps regularly get into the + degrees Celsius (sometimes even double figures) it is just way too hot to handle

11/17/2010 7:34:41 PM I think if you read the "Alpine Responsibility Code" which are the ten commandments of ski resorts, all of them will have a clause in them which says something like you must have "proper device to restrain runaway equipment" such as a ski brake or, in our case, a leash. That seems standard worldwide. I got picked off by ski patrol one day, he was sitting at the top of the main t-bar telling every snowboarder to go down to the shop and buy one, which was bullshit, but considering the resort only had 2 lifts he would have got us again and booted us from the mountain if we didn't, so we paid the 10 bucks and kept on riding. It now lives in my pants pocket just in case. But I personally believe they are freaking useless too. They should be enforced for learners, and learners only.
11/17/2010 7:20:48 PM I took my Sierra RC to NZ this year and had it all different kinds of conditions. Ice and hard pack were pretty sketchy for how I like to ride (bomb hills and carve) and I felt like my riding was going backwards sometimes, which is frustrating as all hell. Slush was pretty nice, felt more playful and there was no worry about catching edges or whatever, but it still felt a pretty negligible difference between my old cambered GNU Pow was wicked though, the RC really did make life easier having the extra float. Personally, considering I ride mainly hard pack and ice here in Aus, i'll stick with my cambered board.
11/17/2010 7:10:07 PM I never really got the whole skimboarding (like shorebreak/wave riding) thing. To me its like surfing but with way more chance of hurting yourself cos you do it in fecking shallow water
11/17/2010 7:04:43 PM Arts degree (which is NOT Art) with a major in History and maybe looking at doubling in Geography as well :) i'm currently in my 5th year of a 3 year degree. Word
11/17/2010 1:14:31 AM Hot waxing with an iron is the only way to penetrate the base and have any lasting effect. Rub on wax will seriously ask one or two runs at the most, as it simply strips off the base. That being said, you should be waxing at least every 3 days you ride to really maximise your boards performance.
11/17/2010 1:10:04 AM Quoted straight fro Ippy's snowboard guide: Directional Twin "The central aim of the directional twin is to allow the versatility of the twin shape, with the power of the edge transfer from the directional board. They are usually twin shape and more than likely will have a soft variation (symmetrical) of a progressive sidecut, but for more freestyle focus, they will have a deep radial cut. Also likely the tail will be a little stiffer than the tip. Naturally they'll ride a little more effectively one way, but for the most part won't feel too different. If you want a deck then that handles speed, carves, take offs and landings on either foot, then likely this is what you want. These decks are for bigger feature freestyle action and for the most part sit in category 4 (though you can also find them in 2 and 3). They are aggressive rides for people who want to get a bit more performance and speed in their run ups, or want a bit more power coming into a spin leaving the vert of a pipe. Twin Imagine if you will, there is a line going north to south through the centre of the deck. If you measured from the far left tip to the centre it would be the same distance as the far right tip to the centre. It would also have the same flexibility in the tail as the nose, and the inserts would be equidistant from the middle. Basically each side is the mirror of the other. And that's pretty much the sum of it :) The big advantage of these decks is you can ride them in switch just as you would in regular. Obviously then these are the best boards for anything involving spins in the slower/smaller features in park - such as rails/boxes, and small jumps (category 1 and 2). It's also a really nice shape for cruising the resort and just mucking about on natural features. Thus, a great many of the decks in the ALL resort section (3) are also true twin. If you need anymore advice on boards just look here http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=40125&PID=864416 It will answer all
11/17/2010 12:54:30 AM Throw as much spray as possible. Double overhead rooster tails are what I live for
11/14/2010 8:27:30 PM I would love to be riding a NS Heritage or SL, but I don't see myself making it to the Nerthern Hemi for snow this season, so it'll have to wait for our winter next year :(
11/14/2010 8:19:19 PM EG2 for the simple reason that they are the only goggle i've ever owned that hasn't cut out my peripheral vision. I have a big shtooking head
11/6/2010 3:25:28 AM The GoPro has been around for a while. Any news on and upgraded model or anything? I'm close to buying one, but willing to wait if there are gonna be any improvements
