||i bought a pair evol snowboarding boots, and everyone keeps telling me that i should return them, because they are not good boots, but i feel like they fit perfectly!! should i return them? or should i hold on to them because they have a good fit and feel comfortable.

||is Killington a good place to start learning how to do trick and jumps or is more of an advanced place for people? because i am new at all of that compared to my friends who are really good, so would you say that it would be good for both?

||i am planning a trip to go to Vermont to snowboard, but i was told there a couple of really good mountains to go to. one of which was Killington, and the other was MT. Snow. i cant decide which one is better, any reasons why one is better then the other would be really helpful, also if there is a mountain better then both of those.

||i am looking into buying everything for hot waxing my board this season, and i watched a lot of the how to hot wax videos, but i am not really sure what i still need to get? i understand i need an iron that does not have the holes in it? i also i need a nice scraper, and i need something that i can use to scrape the edge of my board! and of course the hot wax that i am going to pick! but what i don't understand is the stuff i need to clean the old wax off the bottom of my board?? some of the videos did not have people cleaning the bottom of the board first, and others used this type of acid that was not harmful to the skin? if i do need this base cleaning stuff and that is really important, can i please have the name of a good brand that i can use. thanks a lot!

||i watched your video on how to wax the board, do you know a place that i can get a complete waxing kit like everything in one place so i dont forget anything, based off watching i need a iron just for waxing my board and one that does not get to hot so i dont damage my board, and i need the scrapping tools, and the wax of course. I try to get get the best stuff i can for my board, so a full kit would be nice, any idea or suggestions would be extreamlly helpful :)

||normally i have just rented a board, and cruise down the mountains. last year i bought a sierra stunt, so i can start doing some freestyle boarding because it looks like fun, so that what i am planning on doing this year, i plan to go about every weekend, and i am planning to go away for a 6 day trip. i don't mind taking the extra time to do a full wax if that's the best thing to do, i just don't wanna mess up my board. i was thinking about an all temperature hot wax? you know of a good brand or something i dont really mind spending the money if it is going to help me

||sorry just another question? does it matter what type of wax i use?? i was looking them up and there are so many different name brands? will it make a big difference if i go for the one worth more money? compaired to the cheaper one? and what should i be looking for in the wax

||Thanks for the links :)

||I was told that i should hot wax my board, but should i do that more then once? Or is just doing it once before the season starts good, and just using the normal rub on wax the morning i am going on the mountain?? I really dont understand when to wax the board and what type of wax to do and when to do the wax?? Please leave me a comment and let me know what i have to do!?! Thanks for all of the help

||Okay i just got back into riding last year, because i have the time for it, and i was trying to working on going off small jumps, and i watched alot of videos about it! But i am still having trouble with the landing, i not really sure what i am doing wrong? I come off the jump with enough speed to make it to the other side, but when ever i land i fall, i was told i have to power my board into the ground when i land, but i was also told that i have to land softly, and with the whole board touching the snow at the same time?? What ever advise you can give me would be so helpful? I really want to be able to so small tricks but i need to get down the small jumps!

||Okay so i am getting back into snowboarding this year and i would like to keep up with the live chat on this website? But when ever i click on the link from my phone nothing loads, i dont know if it is something with my phone( i have the iPhone) or is it that the website does not allow the people on mobile phones to talk in the chat?? I would also like to know if i can still win a free give away, even though i am logged on from my phone and not a laptop?? Thanks for all the help

||I just went and bought a new snowboard, and I was trying to find some ways to break in the flex my board has, so it will be easier when I am on the hill
|10/17/2012 8:30:29 AM
||Should I break in the flex on my new board before the season starts

||They don't have my size in stock how often do they get new ones
|10/10/2012 9:10:14 PM
||If you dont have the time to wax your board and your on the go just use the rub on for the time being. Hot wax is the way to go
