12/8/2012 9:28:02 AM I am interested... what price does he want for BOTH and what price does he want for each separate?
5/10/2012 10:40:25 AM DUDE! Good Luck! My wife is from Alaska... I got to go there for my first time in 2010, it is AMAZING! That place ispires ANYONE who steps foot there. HAVE FUN... be careful and smart! Go catch some Salmon, Silvers and Kings... and some Halibut! YUM! Try shooting some bracketed shots, 3 or 5 exposures then take from them the best lighting and pump out some sick landscape photography! GOOD LUCK!
4/27/2012 2:28:25 PM Huh... This doesn't really look like fun at all to me. But then again I like Punk music (I know... go figure) and this many people in one place and all arround me is too much for me. Smallish Punk shows are perfect for me... even sometimes the Warped Tour seems a bit big. But hey, it's all good... to each his own, right? HAVE FUN OUT THERE RAVERS! ...and be safe, so you can keep riding your snowboards!
4/27/2012 2:18:31 PM I broke my tib and fib in my right leg... but that was while skim boarding... then I tore my manuscus in my right knee in a mosh pit. Both injuries did NOT take place on a mountain, but I can usually feel the repercussions or lasting effects of those injuries. However, the worst injury I sustained while snowboarding was a wicked whiplash from a crazy wreck where i fliped head-over-board a lot, I need to slow down a little more often. As for the park, yeah it can be fun sometimes, but honestly, THE PARK is where most injuries on the hill occur... so for the most part, I leave it alone and head for the deeper snow. I actually saw a kid hitting the park on a DEEP powder day and I thought to myself... WTF is he doing? Then I thought... NO WORRIES... he can have it more pow pow for me and my pals!
4/12/2012 1:15:56 PM I have seen those... they are WAY helpful! I thought about getting one... but the WHOLE set up is way expensive... I'll just keep renting for my lil girl... she is doing well on just a standard setup... but I started her just before her 5th B-day... but when starting them as young as your son... at 3, that would be VERY helpful. RIGHT ON... that little stud is hitting boxes at the age of three! HE DA MAN! :)
4/2/2012 7:49:39 AM WOW guys, those are some expensive lessons! And yeah, at my local hill here in Northern Utah, you get one free season pass for any one of YOUR kids that are 5 or under... cuz I am teaching my daughter and next season she will be 5, I'll be getting another season pass for next season again... cuz damn, here at my mountain (Beaver Mtn.) an adult season pass is only $300... so yeah, NO BRAINER! I only got to use mine 18 times this season... gotta make that money too you know! But it's all good, I had a great time, I hope next season has better snow fall! as for actual lessons, I'll stick to teaching her, she did great her last time out and I'd rather spend my money on gear for here AND me...
3/30/2012 3:37:42 PM Lightning80... Those are RAD pics and a great story... thanks for sharing your experience. I actually have not been able to take my daughter again this season... but she keeps telling me that she wants to go. Since the season is all but over... lookslike she will have to wait for next winter. No worries, and by then she will be a bit older and more balenced (fingers crossed). But I am still stoked she had a good experience with her first time on the hill. I look forward to teaching my girl how to turn and carve... like your son was, she currently just knows how to point it down hill and GO GO GO... not so good at stopping or turning, but I did train here to just sit down, which is one way to stop... but when she gets some speed going... stoping on her butt doesn't feel all that pleasent... so yeah, turning and stopping is next! Cheers, bro!
3/23/2012 2:12:30 PM Canyons Resort - Park City, Utah 3-19-2012 22 inches of FRESH! We hiked out of bounds to find some truly DEEP pow. The powder was flying over our heads and we were hooting the whole way down... OVER AND OVER... from the top of the Ninety-Nine 90! This shot was from one of the regular runs... the steep and deep runs were WAY TOO FUN to stop and shoot a photo!
3/23/2012 1:12:22 PM Thanks everyone... IT WAS SUPER RAD... I think I might try it again tomorrow! Maybe!
3/15/2012 8:11:45 AM MOST people TRY to match... try to look like all their clothes cost a lot and match perfectly... I say screw that... DON'T match... it is a fact that you WILL BE easier to find on the hill by your friends or ANYONE for that matter... as I said, most people don't do this.
3/14/2012 3:11:34 PM FORGET MATCHING colors! I agree with scuddera... STAND OUT... don't match... It makes you WAY more easy to spot on the hill... that way, when you do something cool, your girlfriend (or Mom) will see it and be so proud! Difference is... girlfriend will make out with you and pinch your butt... Mom will buy you ice cream on the way home... Hmm, I do like ice cream. Yeah, it's a hard choice on who to bring. I rock some red pants... currently looking for an orange jacket... I haven't seen anyone rock that combo and I JUST GOTTA BE ME!
3/14/2012 8:00:03 AM My point was that... yes, a 160+ board (probably wide) 162-165 would be great for what he is asking about... however, often, while a rider is progressing, they find themselves wanting to do different things, and the more you ride the more you REALLY find what your TRUE style is... it is basically evolving all the time... I used to hate park stuff... now I hit the jumps and try out the rails... not that those things are my fav... trees and pow will ALWAYS be my fav... but I like to try out the WHOLE mtn (as there is not pow on the hill everyday)... thats all I'm saying... nebbernoo will do whatever he wants, of course... I was just trying to help out a fellow rider in ANY way possible. GOOD LUCK nebbernoo... no matter what, HAVE FUN out there!
3/13/2012 3:21:52 PM THAT IS BRILIANT! Let me know when they come out of the oven... I'll be right over!
3/13/2012 11:35:49 AM I agree with Julius77… Demo-ing boards is your absolute best bet to getting what you want/need. That is what I did… and along the way I found that I am actually a different type of snowboarder than I thought I was… AND as I have been progressing and hitting steeper terrain, bigger jumps (park & backcountry) I have found that my style and skills have changed. This transformation has caused me to enjoy different types of boards and appreciate old boards that I had and never really had the skill to appreciate. I recently even WON a Sierra Reverse Crew snowboard here on TruSnow (ordered the 159) and I CANNOT WAIT to take that board out and see how she handles! I am 5’10” and 190lbs. I have been riding since I was a teenager in SoCal (I'm 33 now) but only seriously since I moved here to Utah. There are many different design features and styles that make a BIG difference! On a side note: I think that Stepchild, Capita and NOPE snowboards are doing some cool things right now. There is Rocker (also called “reverse Camber”) and Camber (traditional snowboard design). Don’t let people try to convince you that rocker boards are ONLY for park or that traditional camber boards are no good at park. You MUST ride these boards on your own and get a feel of what is out there. Perhaps the right board for you is a combination of rocker and camber… camber under foot and then a slight to medium rocker from foot to tips… and then there is the question of a directional board or a true twin tip… the variations are many, you just gotta get out there and taste test them all. A local shop in my (current) home town – Logan, UT has this deal where every time you rent/demo one of their boards… between 50% - 100% (I can’t remember the exact percentage) of the cost to demo the board goes towards a future purchase of whatever board you decide on. It all works kind of like a point system. See if you can find a shop with a similar program… it REALLY helps and the guys in these sorts of shops are usually VERY helpful. GOOD LUCK DUDE… Keep riding!
