2/14/2013 2:46:24 PM NIB danny Kass Oakley Crowbars. Want to trade for New/newish A-frames with cool lenses preferably for lower light conditions. Please let me know if you would like to trade or buy these. Thanks!
12/21/2012 9:19:06 AM What are you planning to do this weekend?   I'm planning on riding at Northstar, if I can get through the storm.
10/22/2012 11:02:11 AM Hey fellow bay area riders. I like to snowboard. I like to go up almost every weekend. I don't like paying for all that gas when friends flake/get called in to work, etc. I sometimes take day trips. Leave around 5:30-6am, return by 7-8. I have an Epic Local Pass so I'll most likely be at Northstar or Kirkwood. If you're interested, reply to this thread when winter starts or PM me. It'll be great if other people can drive too ( I have 215,000+ miles on my car and hope it lasts) I can comfortabley fit 3 people/gear in my car. I am located in south San Jose, travel up 880/680/80 and have no probs picking up people as long as they aren't too far off the trail.   General rules: No douchbaggery at any time No cigarettes smoked inside of car please (cigarette pit stops are fine) No underage drinking (No problem with leaving a drunk kid in Tahoe) If you make us wait more than 15 minutes, we may leave you Please no overt mental illness (stable on meds is fine) 420 friendly/accepting No hard/illegal drugs please   *Please just be cool if you're in my car and vice/versa. I will use some of my spam count posts to say bad things about you if you act like a douche.
10/4/2012 11:36:52 AM Back in the day, I got new cartels from Sierra for under $120.
9/13/2012 8:58:46 AM I have a K2 Eldorado 166 I keep around for pow days, but the stance width of the inserts only extends to 22 inches, and they're a bit too centered for the riding I do with the board. Is there any way to drill additional 4x4 inserts towards the tail of the board to increase my stance width and setback? Is this something I can do myself? Any feedback would be appreciated.
8/27/2012 12:11:56 PM Hey fellow snow junkies- unfortunately I'm going in to have surgery tomorrow at 6:30AM to fix my left shoulder. It got banged up pretty bad this past season (boarded in a sling for 2 weeks... so boring- no park, no tricks, no jumps), but it was already damaged a bit from years of competing in jiu-jitsu and submission wrestling tournaments. Anyways, the surgery will be done arthroscopicaly (sp?) and the surgeon will be fixing a torn rotator cuff, torn labrum (shoulder cartilidge), draining fliud build up from trauma to the site, and possibly snipping and reattatching my bicep tendon to a different part of my shoulder- as this is 'frayed' in a section and may tear in the future. Anyways, It would really mean a lot to me if you guys and gals could send some positive vibes my way. I wish I could say I'm not scared at all, but the truth is that I am a little spooked. Any thoughts or prayers would be greatly appreciated, and I'm hoping this surgery will stop my shoulder from hurting all the time. *Also, if my posts don't make a lot of sense for the next few days, it's because I'm most likely doped up on painkillers and feeling wonderful. I'll say hello to Major Tom for all of you if/when I see him. Thanks everyone!
7/17/2012 4:48:36 PM Hey TruSnow people, I would like to preface this post by stating that I am completely sober as I write this. I am grateful that I am alive in a time where snowboarding is both possible and accepted at most winter resorts. I am glad to have been born around the same time snowboards were first being conceptualized (late 70's) and live in a time where Tahoe resorts welcome snowboarders. As an early teen, there was a lot of static between skiiers and boarders as perceptions of the others were less than positive. Many resorts didn't allow snowboarders initially and I appreciate the people and groundwork that was laid out to decrease those negative perceptions, allowing boarders to gain acceptance on the hill with skiiers. I grew up skiing and never touched a snowboard until I was 30. I love skateboarding, and have since I was a pre-teen, so snowboarding felt really natural to me. After the first day I was hooked. I've never been on ski's since. Now, with the incorporation of different board profiles, better tech, better materials, and snowboards for specific riding conditions; I feel nothing but gratitude to be living in this era. Had I been born 20+ years earlier, I would have missed out on something that brings me one of the purest senses of joy I have experienced. As I sit in my office, Mid July, thinking of Northstar and Kirkwood for this coming winter; I can't help but smile. I'll probably never do a cork or a rodeo anything, but I love riding pow, groomers, trees, and can pop a 180 comfortably. I think I'm okay with that for now. It's easy to take what we have for granted, but it's also good to remember that we live in a special time where the option of snowboarding is available for us to enjoy. I just wanted to share my thoughts with the Sierra/Trusnow community. Ride on Gnar fiends- whether you're a park rat, half-pipe jock, beginner, or all mountain killer. It's all good, and I am grateful we get to snowboard.
7/11/2012 12:04:26 PM Hey TS community, There have been a few Mervin boards that I've tried and I have never had an issue while riding. They make friggin sweet boards. However, everytime I get close to buying a Lib or Gnu board, I get concerned about the metal edge not going all around the board. All my boards are fully wrapped in steel. Am I just tripping, or is it actually a concern- I'm thinking especially for park boards. I understand that not having the metal edge on the nose and tail reduced swing weight, but does this leave the board more vulnerable to impact damage to the nose/tail that can not be fixed easily? I worry that if I bang a box or rail on the wrong spot that the metal edge will pop out easier than a board that's fully wrapped. I am fully aware that this may not be a rational concern. Lib's Sk Banana is probably the most popular park board on the mountain. But when I look at boards where the metal trails off, I just feel unsure if it will hold up for a few seasons. That, paired with the cost of a Lib or Gnu board, makes me hesitant to buying one. Anyways, for all you lucky SOB's out there rocking Mervin boards. I'd really appreciate your feedback and any positive or negative experiences you've had with your gear. Gnar Gnar Gnar.
3/6/2012 1:25:55 PM Just wanted to give Forum a big "you guys kick ash!" for their customer service. I have a pair of Kicker SLR boots (I think '08) and the speed lacing (upper and lower zone) pull cords started shredding earlier on in the season. It finally got to the point where the black outer layer completely broke, and just the white nylon inner string remained- but the white inner string was too thin to catch on the teeth of the securing device, leaving me with boots that wouldn't tighten. I called Forum customer service, from the website, and the staff member sent me replacement laces with a tool and instructions to replace them. They even provided retailers in my town that would install these laces if I had a hard time. All of this was free of charge. They didn't even charge me for the postage. I thought I'd have to buy new boots and am really glad that I don't have to. Just wanted to say 'thank you' to Forum. It seems they really stand behind their products, and that's nice to see.
2/10/2012 12:58:07 PM I guess it really doesn't matter that much, but I prefer to know what I'm doing. I've looked it up on the internet, asked friends, and seen it in different threads in this forum; and a lot of the info is conflicting. I ride regular and like doing spins. I've always thought that when I spin clockwise, tail moves downhill towards skiiers left and nose moves uphill towards skiiers right; that it's called a backside 180. However, others have told me that I'm doing a frontside 180. It may be a silly noobish question, but I don't have TV so I don't watch a lot of snowboarding with commentary. If anyone can clear this up I'd appreciate it.
2/1/2012 10:06:47 PM It was at Boreal last Friday 1/27/12. I was adjusting my bindings at the outside tables by the lodge. I took off my mask and set it down on the table, adjusted my stance width; and while my back was turned, you stole my torn, sweaty, heavily breathed in Seirus neoprene face mask. I know it looks hella cool with the image of a half-scull on it, but I also put work in on that mask. You know I had to friggin sew on velcro straps to make it fit right? You must know that because you have it now. Isn't is nice how the extra velcro makes it that much more adjustable and securely fastened? Yeah, that was all me. You should also know that you stole my first facemask that wasn't a cotton bandanna. Neoprene works so much better and is way more comfortable than cotton, so enjoy it you prick. You must have wanted it pretty bad to steal it, even though I've dribbled snot in it, so enjoy it. I'll probably get another one soon. I kinda wanted the one with alligator teeth anyways. I'm at Boreal a lot, so It'd probably be best for you to not wear my mask there. and please stop stealing. It pisses people off and puts a blemish on an otherwise awesome day. You don't need that kind of Karma. Until then, enjoy the mask. I better never see you wearing it. 
11/2/2011 1:38:58 PM And I'm packing up and heading to Tahoe. Hoping some friends can make it, but it's hard for most of my friends to get weekdays off. Either way, I'll be there. I think they have one quad lift and some park features lined up. I can't wait. It's been so long since last winter. I'll probably bring my beater board so I'm not too worried about rocks, dirt, weeds, etc. Stokked!!!!
9/5/2011 10:36:49 PM Hey All- I have a never opened box of Oakely Crowbar Danny Kass goggles with Fire Iridium Lenses. I have a sweet pair of A-frames with fire iridium lenses and don't need both. I don't have any pics because I just got them in the mail and haven't opened the box yet. The goggles are from TruSnow The combo is fire lenses and grunge strap/frame, and it has a little pocket on the strap. I'd prefer to do this transaction locally if possible. I'm in San Jose, CA. I'm a bit of a luddite, I apologize. I was hoping to get $100 for them. If you're far, I can ship them, as they are still in the shipping box, but really would prefer to not deal with international shipping. Please PM me if interested.    
9/1/2011 3:17:53 PM Preface: this is a rant. Initially my boss told me and another coworker (same position) that we could flex our schedules to a 4 day work week. Basically four 10 hour days. I was thrilled, as I just got married this past July, recently bought a house, and would have really liked to have been able to spend more time at home with my wife and dogs. We had discussed this early last week, and had adjusted my schedule and all of my Friday clients to later appointments M-Th. Today, I get pulled into a meeting with said co-worker and two assistant managers and we were informed that our manager (who is conveniently absent today, before the long weekend) is now stating that she never had these conversations with me and my co-worker, and never approved the flex schedule. So, now I have to reschedule my later appointments back to friday, look like a douche who can't manage his own schedule in the process, and potentially lose some clients as they were very happy to have later appointment times (some of my clients are kids and school is starting). Basically, I was looking forward to having a weekday this Winter with the slopes to myself. Sigh...
1/22/2011 10:42:08 PM So... ergh. My fiancee saw a picture one member posted of the 2012 burton mr nice guy, which have alice in wonderland graphics. she has never come up with me to tahoe ONE TIME, and when she saw that board, she said, "I want that one. Then I'll try snowboarding." Ignoring the fact that I am opposed to buying a new Burton for someone who hasn't even tried snowboarding, would this board be the sort of board you would recommend someone learn to ride on? (Someone who is not very athletic or coordinated? And has bad depth perception to boot?)
