3/23/2013 5:45:56 PM Super fast shipping from these guys!! Just got them today and awesome quality.Time to order a few more for XMAS gifts :)
3/19/2013 3:21:53 PM The old code used for the sale expired like a week ago. My Z099PLAYT8X7Y  code still works, I just tried it. Figured I'd pass the sale along since it's such a great deal.  Any referral $$ can only be used at artscow... so I'm def. not in it for that.
3/16/2013 11:41:44 PM Looks like the code expires at the end of the month. Just made a 2nd Burton mousepad, and a set of playing cards with my face on them.  Will make a good X-Mas gift 
3/16/2013 9:52:22 PM Awesome dude! Where did you get those and how much do those run?  Anyways.... Bought myself a Fixie with a flip flop hub, so plan on using it in single speed until i want to mess around on it on fixed. Bought some bullhorn bars to throw on it. Can't wait till the weather gets nice now.   [/QUOTE] What other bikes do you have?!  Definitely curious since I'm looking at getting a single speed right now too... to join my other 3 :)
3/16/2013 9:50:15 PM Found this out on another forum and figured I'd pass it along too.Just made this mousepad and can't wait to see it in person. I've read very good things about the quality. I'm also designing a Burton one right now too.  Artscow is having a sale, $.99 Cents and Free Shipping! Also works on:Dog Tag Deck of Cards Ornament Cosmetic Bag Mousepad Keychain 3D Greeting CardUse code: Z099PLAYT8X7YExpires 3/31/13 Whoop!!
3/17/2011 4:24:22 PM It's science.... Listen to Doug, any ski and board tune shop will tell you this./End Thread
3/17/2011 4:19:36 PM thought the love was being discontinued...
3/17/2011 4:17:29 PM thanks for the heads up!definitely needed a new one after this season
3/17/2011 4:12:55 PM Snap, how did you get those union stickers? My bindings never came with them, so I emailed asking if they could send some to me, but it was only 1 orange one.
12/14/2010 12:56:43 PM one of  those half face masks works well.. especially since it covers your nose. anyone use those full head masks?  I have wondered about that to protect my neck and more of my ears.Any info would definitely be appreciated, looking to buy one soon to try it out
12/14/2010 12:54:59 PM If you have only have had extruded bases then I agree with you....... but a sintered base NEEDS to be waxed. [/QUOTE]my board that i never waxed for 10 years was extruded.  But, like I said.  Normally, once or twice a season is enough even for sintered base.  If you are doing 100 days a season, you may need to wax more than 1 or 2 times...  do it more if you are need the little extra performance.   my point is, most people don't need to wax as often as they do.  even in this thread people are saying they wax EVERY time they go out.  [/QUOTE] waxing isn't just about speed...it's about general maintenance and pride in your equipment.    Waxing is also when I check/repair gouges and edge anomalies.  It's about extending the life of your board (which few on this site seem to care about).  granted, the steeper your local mountain, the less you have to worry about extended glide (although, it's always good to have for the occasional slow spot).  My local spot, relatively to most resorts in the seirra nevada, is kinda flat and we get tons of natural snow on top of that.  Waxing on a regular basis reduces unstrapping/walking by about 90%, here.[/QUOTE] yup agreed.. and if it's extruded then yea, you don't have to wax.  I figured you were talking about a sintered base,... hope that clears up my previous post
12/14/2010 12:44:48 PM Nice double post. and these giveaways are by choice, they could have quit them all together.  This is awesome that they do this at all... be grateful
12/14/2010 12:41:39 PM yea I definitely recommend this , especially with your Burton boards!  They don't detune those at all I have noticed with mine. always better to be prepared than to try and fix what you could have prevented!good tip of the day!
12/14/2010 12:26:16 PM Never had a problem with Chrome or Firefox on here....just make sure to stay away from IE.... stone age right there
12/13/2010 10:19:17 AM I would really hate to be your car then.  I am a huge stickler on maintenance in my car, I probably over do it.  Usually flush the exhaust system once a year... on that note I will have to disagree with you.   Conflict of interest or not, you should still definitely wax your board, you really don't notice any difference in performance or anything unwaxed/!?!
