10/6/2011 12:15:56 PM Most riders are limited by experience rather than equipment, so I really wouldn't be to worried about what board to get or even getting a new one.  I would make a twin board "or set up" a requirement just because riding switch will make you a better rider. If you go to extreme with a park board you start loosing all mountain speed and stability. I bought a gnu pickle ( made by same company as lib tech : mervin) last season and loved it. I Liked the C2 cut out, magne traction. Did everything on it. Didn't get much high speed chatter in the 40-50mph range and was awesome in the powder. If your going to own only one board I would consider a half banana like the Lib tech TRS which might be a better all mountain board. Do your research, im sure you'll be happy with what ever you get. Just remember a $500 dollar board doesn't instantly make you a better rider. Nothing replaces experience
8/24/2010 3:45:47 PM I've played some of the new board games and they're fun at first, but i get bored with them quickly. I don't think I've really enjoyed a snowboard game since 1080 for the 64
8/24/2010 3:32:56 PM I liked my psp when i first got. Never used it a whole lot, but loved it when I was traveling or playing games while I was watching TV. Bought and downloaded a lot of movies for it. However the new smart phones are making it obsolete.  GTA, sport games & god of war justifies holding on to it.  
6/11/2010 3:00:02 PM I bought a cheap used board when I first started. I ended up buying something else the next year, but its to hard to know what kind of riding your going to do until you get experience. Plus my old board is nice to have around for a spare or for my friends.  I herd that the reverse camber is nice for not catching edges, but chatters at high speed. For a beginner I think that would probably be fine   Anything that makes it a little easier, little more fun and makes you want to board again
6/11/2010 1:03:13 AM The skirt on the bike is wrong
6/11/2010 12:54:38 AM World Cup would be fun, but I want to go to the carnival  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
6/2/2010 1:57:02 PM I like 808miles idea of hitting it with iron then  scraping it. Either way I wouldn't worry about it, Your doing more for your board than most people do.
6/2/2010 12:00:29 PM Even in my small group of friends, alot of us where helmets anyways.  It took me crashing going 50mph and then my friends getting concussions before we bought helmets. If we were half smart we would have bought helmets before we needed them.  Despite all the politics, making kids where helmets will eventually save someones life. However I think it should be 16 and under and no fines. Let the resorts police themselves. 
6/2/2010 11:29:59 AM Thats messed up. There was a reality show kind of like the bachelor, but all the guys were fighting over a girl, who used to be a guy.  The worst part she was a pretty hot dude. Damn surgeons. It reminds me of my favorite family guy quote,  the one where quagmire gets hit on by a tranny, " Pre opp. or post opp?"  lol
6/2/2010 11:09:50 AM I hate these little kids that are just ridiculously good and theyre better at age 10 than I'd ever be
6/1/2010 9:04:06 PM Lessons would probably be good to, but Im always to cheap to do them.  Made me think of the old joke, " whats the difference between a beginning snowboarder and a snowboard instructor ?  Two weeks"
6/1/2010 8:59:18 PM When I was trying to teach my gf  to snowboard, I took to skate a 4 story parking garage.  Practice carving on the skateboard by getting on her toes to turn right and on her heels to turn left.  ( oppisite if your goofy). I had her imagine her board was a boat in the water. ( I think it helps get the idea not to catch edges) and to lean her weight up hill. Then on the mountain, the first thing she learned was to stop heel side and toe side.  I cant guarantee anything I taught her worked, but we had a fun day and she did better than I did when I first started.  Now I am about to give you the best beginner advice you will ever going to get... 1.Your going to eat it, just accept it. 2. When you fall face forward do a superman /  or sliding face first when your stealing a base (baseball) 3. When you fall backwards, tuck your chin slap the ground while your falling) (arms strait) and roll back You will be surprised how much #2 & 3 will spread the impact over your whole body  and help prevent from getting injured. 
5/31/2010 11:40:56 AM I keep all my crap in a big bag, so I never have to pack. I'm afraid of it get stolen if I left it in the car, but by the door usually works.  I like packing caprisuns and protein bars while I'm riding, that way I wont have to stop for lunch or pay the crazy lodge prices.  Hit up taco bell after, go back to parking lot, sleep in the car and hit first chair in the morning. I dont like energy drinks usually, but I agree keeping some for the drive home.
5/30/2010 10:07:05 PM I liked the trailers for inception, but I hate Leonardo DiCaprio. Avatar 3D imax was cool with the 10' blue boobies and all but I plan to never watch it again. I seen alot of movies this year  and How to train your Dragon and Iron man 2 were probably the best.  Iron Man 2 wasn't the best story and wasn't quite as good as the first one, but it was probably the most fun to watch. I liked the fight scene to Robot Rock
5/30/2010 9:46:10 PM I've looked at the bern helmets and I like them.  I just bought a R.E.D. munity II (owned by burton) helmet and I'm really a happy with it. I've read reviews that it had bad sound quality, but I think its loud enough. Honestly I think its like buying boots. Find a helmet that fits your head and you like the looks of.  Anything is better than nothing and it only takes one fall to be glad you spent the money
