"Freerider's Paradise" 3/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Arbor Element Cx Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Powder
  • Pros:  Asthetics (wood finish),
  • Cons:  Semi-limited performance,

Experience:   I did buy this board and have owned a few Arbor Snowboards in my day. I trust Arbor whole heartedly to create well designed, asthetically pleasing, all mountain boards year in and year out. I always like to own a board for freeriding the steeps of Mammoth Mountain as well as for my beloved annual Utah trips alongside a board for freestyle, park and ground tricks. This board is simply a solid answer for freeriding. It carves effortlessly and I think it responds well to shin deep powder. However, if you live in Southern California and you frequent the local mountains like Mt. High, Snow Summit, Bear, and Snow Valley where the snow is frequently icey or slushy, my recommendation would be to get a freestyle board with tons of flex and just mess around in the parks. This board is made for big mountain resorts and quality snow.
"Perfect Gloves For Bluebird, Warm Days" 4/24/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton Pipe Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Light weight, Breathable, Good Grip
  • Cons:  Too Thin For Cold Weather, Retain Moisture Stains,

Experience:   If you are like me and you spend alot of time riding in temperatures between 40-50 degrees (for me I ride the local Southern California Mtns alot and if it's not snowing its usually always warm to almost hot) then these gloves are absolutely perfect. They provide the proper insulation from the snow but also allow for better breathability and subsequently coolness than if you're wearing heavy duty gloves in warm temperatures. Furthermore, the gripability, if you will, is really solid for those who ride park and can and will throw a grab or two in there or for if you want to film a friend. I spent alot of time filming friends because they were almost as good as etip gloves in that you can accurately use smart phones with them on because you can actually feel your fingers. All in all, I would recommend to anyone who rides alot in warmer than usual weather and for those who are gonna ride in spring conditions.
"Satisfied And Would Recommend The Missions" 3/14/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Mission Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  Flexible Enough For Presses and Butters, Really Comfortable, Highly padded straps,
  • Cons:  Loosen Up on Runs, Buckles feel a bit Fragile,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I bought the missions before this season and rode them on my stunt. I was initially attracted to the missions because of their mid flexibility and because of the really padded straps. I wanted an affordable, good looking binding that would allow me to both freeride and to do some jibbing and ground tricks. The mid flex is perfect for allowing me to do both kinds of riding. The padded straps were extremely comfortable. I did find, however, that on a good amount of runs they tended to loosen up and allowed my heel to come up particularly on toe turns. Based on my experience with the missions I would recommend them to high level intermediate freeriders who also like to throw in some jibbing and small jumps-they're not ideal for riders who spend most of their time in the park-they're not flexibile enough for that.
"Great Backpack" 5/12/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Team Mission Backpack
  • Pros:  Asthetics, Strong and durable, Can carry board vertically
  • Cons:  Lots of straps that can potentially get caught , Could use a little more storage space ,

Experience:   I got this backpack at the beginning of the 2010-2011 season and I am so glad that I did. This was the first season out of my 13 years of riding that I did alot of riding with a pack. I needed a good looking, well made pack from a reputable company for my days at big resorts on my week-long trips. On those days I always get either really hungry or thirsty or desperately need to re-apply sunblock throughout the day and thus, I needed something to carry those essentials. Obviously, as most of us who push our riding to the limit do, I took a few heavy spills this season-some of which were on icey terrain. The backpack handled those falls better than my body and showed no signs of damage let alone wear. One of the really cool aspects of this pack is that it allows for you to vertically carry your snowboard either at the beginning or end of the day or if you need to do a hiking section in the backcountry. I used that function multiple times and it worked perfectly. The one concern that I had was with the multiple straps (belly and chest) that it might make for more chance of getting caught in a lift or something. Luckily that never happened but I have seen it happen to others. All in all, this backpack looks awesome, it performs it's function perfectly, and it's really durable. I recommend this backpack and Dakine in general.
"Polarizing" 3/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Flow The Five Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Easy to buckle and unbuckle,
  • Cons:  Not snug enough,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I have an interesting take on flow bindings since I have the initial models of Flow bindings that were put out in the early 2000's. I use them on my all mountain, free ride board and have had a love/hate relationship with them for a long, long time. Sometimes I find them to be so convenient that I cannot believe more riders don't use them while other times I wonder why I simply cannot achieve the proper grip of boot that I long for. It's either it is too tight over the top of your foot and too loose in the back or it is vice versa. It's interesting that the company has clearly shifted it's focus from freeriding to trying to accomodate to park riders (which is evident in their sponsorship of such riders as Scotty Lago).
