8/16/2012 8:44:54 PM While this is not a snowboarding mount,  I swear this is one of the coolest angles I've ever seen on a Gopro: [flash width=600 height=450]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=14638294&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=14638294&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash[/flash]
2/18/2012 11:46:46 AM Is it just me or is the advice about leaning forward really frightening to anyone else?  Like so many have stated, staying balanced is the key.  Landing too far forward OR too far backward can have really big consequences. Last year went off a bigger jump at beaver creek and was leaning way too far forward.  Right off the lip I started flailing, trying to lean back, because I felt like I was gonna face plant nose first.  This was much scarier to me then slipping out and landing on my back.  Here's the video. You can clearly see that I am too far forward and have to lean way back to land it...

1/22/2012 4:54:02 AM Good luck with purple.  That sounds just like my wife- except that I'm still trying to get her to learn to ski.  I think if I were responsible for her getting on a board that I'd end up sleeping on the couch for a month. hahah.  Its kinda a pain to paint, but honestly, its worth it to have a helmet just how you want it.  Plus its a fun project to do in August or September when you're waiting for the season to start
1/22/2012 4:47:00 AM My experience?  Ha! Sounds like you know more about the plastics than I do.  Plus your technique has got to better than mine.  Good luck.  It will turn out great I'm sure. 
1/22/2012 4:36:30 AM My buddy has had this exact problem the last two times we went out boarding.  I'm emailing him the link.  I hope it fixes issue.
1/20/2012 3:14:09 PM I don't have any pics, but here are two videos with me in the same helmet, painted two different colors.  I'm the guy with the VonZipper goggles, and the Mutiny helmet.  BTW, no laughing at my riding.  ;) [flash width=600 height=338]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=26796986&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=26796986&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash[/flash] [flash width=600 height=338]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10103476&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10103476&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash[/flash]
1/20/2012 3:00:01 PM I HAVE PAINTED MY HELMET THREE DIFFERENT TIMES AND IT WORKS FINE- as long as you are not in a hurry and take time to do it right.  I picked up a RED (brand, not color) mutiny that was an out-of-box special at SNIAGRAB for $20 bucks, but the gray paint was ugly and chipped from being dropped on the floor.  Worth the cheap price, but I wanted to upgrade the color and fix the chipped paint.  Here's how I did it. How to paint your snowboard helmet: FIRST: Take out any of the padding that can be removed, it makes it easier to work with, and then you don't have to worry as much about getting crap all over the inside padding.  You still have to cover the foam, but we'll get to that in a bit. SECOND: The trick is to sand sand sand. Get two different grades of sand paper, one medium-fine and one really fine (it doesn't have to be a "wet" sand paper, but if you do wet sanding, it will look even better, it just takes more time and work to get it right).  Use light strokes moving mostly in the same direction to evenly sand the helmet surface.  Don't push too hard because this will put big scratches that you'll have to even out later.  It's impossible to sand a shape like a helmet in all one direction, but try going front to back and back to front.  This will make spotting any blemishes and imperfections easier. Remember: Take your time.  The more time you spend in good prep work, the better the final outcome.  I can't guarantee it will look good if you skip on any of the steps. THIRD:  If there are some scratches or gauges from the medium grade sand paper, use the fine sand paper to smooth them out.  It doesn't have to be quite perfect at this point, but remember that the smoother the surface looks now, the better the final outcome later. FOURTH:  OK, this next step will vary depending on your helmet, but you want to mask off the helmet with tape so that you don't get paint on the edges of the foam or any of the straps and padding.  I've found that the easiest way to do that is to stuff it full of plastic shopping bags (to cover more area and use less tape, and to make sure that if any of the tape peels, the plastic shopping bags block most of the spray).  The other trick I've found that is really easy is to take the chin strap and buckle it together and wrap the whole thing in foil.  Its easier to use than tape and it comes off easier too.  Then I stick the strap (foil-wrapped and all) in the helmet, cover the whole inside with a couple of plastic shopping bags.  I don't spread them out flat much, I just use them to fill in the helmet, so its easier to tape.  Then I take painter's masking tape and cover everything in multiple layers to keep the excess paint off.  Pay attention to all the edges where you don't want to get paint.  This is actually one of the most annoying and time-consuming steps because you'll find it somewhat difficult to get the tape to stick perfectly.  Just take your time cause you don't want to have paint getting on the inside- it will look retarded. FIFTH: You want to prime the helmet with primer.  I've found that the best paint for helmets that are used outdoors in cold weather is (surprise surprise) PLASTIC PATIO FURNITURE PAINT.  Buy it at home depot, or Lowe's or something.  The primer is white, and it will make the final paint job look even and smooth.  When choosing paint, a word of advice:  READ THE FREAKIN' DIRECTIONS.  When it says to only paint an object above a certain temp, its true.  If its too cold outside, do it indoors in the garage, or wait for a warm day.  If it says let it dry for a certain amount of time in between coats, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS or your final result might suck.  If you're not sure how to apply an even coat of spray paint, do a youtube search and see how to do it.  The trick is to move back and forth, doing passing sprays.  Take your time.  And remember: LESS IS MORE.   You want the primer to be applied pretty evenly, but don't put so much on that it drips or sags.  In fact, if you're not sure if you put enough on, stop and let the first coat dry.  If you're not in a hurry, you can always go back and do a second LIGHT coat.  Read the back of the can, or practice on a piece of card board, wood, or the side of your neighbor's house (you don't want to screw up on your helmet, do you?).  Seriously, go SLOW and TAKE your time.  That doesn't mean go slow and spray a bunch of paint all in one spot, it means move slowly and evenly over the surface of the helmet, adding just a thin layer of paint in one pass.  If your finger starts to hurt, stop and take a break, don't go faster.  By the way, keep from making a mess by assuming you will.  I turn a bucket over and stuck the helmet on that, then put the whole thing on a some cardboard and a drop cloth to keep from getting paint everywhere.  Also, LET THE PRIMER DRY FOR AS LONG AS IT SAYS ON THE BACK OF THE CAN.  Don't put it in front of a heater, don't blow dry it to speed it up, just leave it alone in the garage for a day or two. SIXTH: Take your newly primed helmet and LIGHTLY sand the sucker until it is baby-butt smooth.  Use the super fine sand paper and take your time.  Look for scratches and imperfections and buff them out using the same front to back direction as before.  You don't want to take off all the primer, you just want to smooth out the imperfections.  If this means that you sand almost all the way through the primer coat, so be it- you can always prime that spot again if you need to, although I would try to avoid it unless you like taking extra steps.  When you're done there should be no imperfections in the surface of the paint.  Any imperfections here will probably show up on your final coat of paint.  When you're finally done sanding use an air compressor to blow all the fine dust off the helmet and/or wipe it off with a damp rag. SEVENTH:  Use the same brand/type of plastic patio furniture outdoor paint for your top coat (but not primer-duh!).  You also need to read the back of the can on this one too, because a lot of top-coat paints will have different drying times than primer.  You can use matte finish or semi-gloss.  Anything in high gloss will be too shiny and the shinier it is, the easier to see the spots where you screwed up.  Take your time with the final coat.  Go very slowly, and remember, you can always go back and add a second coat if you need, but once you put on too much and it sags, you'll have to wipe it off, let it dry, and sand it down again before you can add the final coat.  Let it dry, and you should be good. The paint job will also last more than one season as long as don't have a habit of dropping your helmet on the ground in the parking lot..  If you take a hard head shot in the park you can also easily chip the paint, but at that point you should probably be buying a new helmet anyway, if you're into following manufacturer's warnings and all that. Any other questions just let me know...
12/16/2011 6:30:29 PM Hanging out with my bro (Guth) in Tahoe for Thanksgiving.  He told me that I should try a flip.  I asked: "How do you do one?" He said: "I don't know, I've never landed one." With that we had to start trying them at the bottom of the run, right under the lift. Hilarious.

12/13/2011 5:03:14 PM freakin awesome! something like this makes you realize that all your personal problems fade away in comparison to his struggle.  KP for the win.
7/25/2011 9:35:55 AM This took a while to put together but worth the wait. [flash width=600 height=450]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=26796986&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=26796986&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash[/flash]
4/25/2011 3:36:17 PM So two weeks ago my son turned 3, and last week we took him skiing for the first time. This is a vid I put together of his progress in just one day.  He's a total natural.  If you want to see him ski, just skip ahead to about the 4 minute mark and he starts tearing it up.  [flash width=600 height=450]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=22465807&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=20278986&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=1&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;autoplay=0&amp;loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash[/flash]

3/21/2011 6:14:32 PM Day 26 today at Keystone was awesome.  The weather was beautiful and the snow was soft and fast.  Going to Echo Mountain this Friday for some night skiing.  For those of you in the area, they have a deal for the next couple of Friday nights where lift tickets are only $5 bucks.  I think they have the details listed on their website. Don't remember what my arm was doing in this pic. I think it was a grab that never happened...

2/23/2011 6:41:54 PM Levi, don't know if anyone mentioned this, but most plans have a stipulation that you have to be paying on the policy for at least 6 months before they will pay for cavities to be filled.  For major dental work like a crown or wisdom teeth you have to be on the plan for a year before its covered.  "I just so happened to go through UCLA dental school for a lot of work and have been very happy with the results.  The prices are typically better than what you can get with good insurance.  For example a root canal was 550 dollars.  A crown was 425 dollars.  Fillings from 65 to 125 dollars.  Deep cleaning only 65 bucks.  I am a grad student at CSUN who has a relationship with UCLA but nonetheless I have heard that you do not have to be a student to be a patient necessarily.  I would look into Davis and see what they offer if anything.  Definitely worth a phone call.  However, if it is an emergency than this is not the way to go because nothing will happen on the drop of a dime." ^^^ This idea seems freaking awesome, cause my crown and several fillings are gonna cost me $900 even after insurance. I'm waiting for my tax return to get them done. It might be worth a drive down to UCLA if Davis doesn't work for ya. Truly, the prices are better than with insurance
