"Arbor Draft 153" 4/5/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Arbor Draft Snowboard Black Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Park,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Lots of fun, Surprisingly good in powder, Super soft
  • Cons:  No dampening,

Experience:   I bought this in spring and I've had three days on it in varied conditions. I already had a 158 cambered board (Del Rey) and wanted something softer and more playful. The Draft also allows you to size down, so I got a 153. First impression was that it's a totally different feel from riding a cambered board. Nowhere near as smooth to ride - it's like driving a car with wooden tires and no suspension. You feel every little bump, especially at speed. Turn initiation was also different. But after a day getting used to the feel I started to really like the way the board rides. You can get away with a lot more without catching an edge landing, and the reverse camber and soft flex makes butters and presses much easier. Doesn't pop quite as well as the Del Rey. Might not be everyone's favorite look, but I love the graphics on the board. Another surprise was how well it handled powder. Although it's much shorter, this board in a 153 floats a lot better than the 158 and it's a lot less work to keep the nose up and surf. Bottom line - it doesn't have the edge hold and control of the Del Rey, but it's better in powder and better for just goofing around doing ground tricks and small park features.
"STW FTW!" 2/23/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 32 Thirty Two STW BOA Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  Comfy, Snug fit,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  10

Experience:   I got these to replace my old boots which were packed out and I couldn't get them tight. I've got two days on the mountain in them so far. The boa system is awesome. So much easier to make adjustments - I can tighten the boots on the lift. I wear a 10 and these are snug, but soft enough to still be comfortable. They're definitely soft, which I prefer, but if you're looking for a solid, stiff boot these definitely aren't for you. I love that I can tighten them up and they still feel good. Fit fine with my large Flow bindings.
"Dragon " 11/29/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dragon D1XT Goggles
  • Pros:  Very comfortable, Don't fog, Spare lens

Experience:   I have the Simon Chamberlain model. Although the lenses in the photo look silver/gray they are actually a blue mirror finish. I love these goggles. They don't fog, even on warm days. They fit great with my helmet. And best of all they don't pinch my nose. They're nice and wide at the nose (wider than my Oakley Crowbars), so I can breathe easily through my nose. The extra lens is also awesome, although it would have been good to have a night lens. As it is, they came with the blue(for bright light) and rose (for low light).
"Worth every penny" 6/8/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Oakley Gascan Sunglasses
  • Pros:  Lens clarity, Light, Durable

Experience:   I've owned several pairs of Oakley Fives and decided to get these last time I needed new sunglasses. I buy sunglasses based mostly on fit, but I always get Oakleys becasue I believe their lens quality is better than any others. In CA, we have bright sunshine 250 - 300 days a year, so I want somethign that will protect my eyes and that I can wear all day. These are comfortable, durable, and the lens clarity is amazing. I'd recommend getting a hardcase to protect them, since they don't come with one.
"Neff Daily Glove" 3/6/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Neff Daily Pipe Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Light, Sweet color,

Experience:   I wanted some gloves for warmer spring days. My hands get so hot and sweaty in regular gloves. These are lightweight and comfortable. I've worn them three times on warmer days (around 40f) and they work great. They're super grippy, quick to pull on and off, and don't make my hands too hot. I wouldn't recommend them on cold or wet/snowy days, but that's not really what they're for. They're not waterproof and not insulated. Probably not great for beginners or anyone who spends a lot of time on the ground either. But for riding on bluebird days they're perfect, and, although I think they come in several colors, I love the bright blue.
"Oakley Crowbars" 2/7/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Oakley Crowbar Goggles
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Don't fog, Excellent clarity

Experience:   I bought these in fall and have used them for four days on the snow. Mine have the persimmon lens, which was excellent on an overcast day and fine on a sunny bluebird day - definitely not too bright. My old goggles were cheap Smiths, but I've had Oakley sunglasses before, and like those the major difference with these goggles is the clarity. Really clear lenses and they haven't fogged at all, even on a sunny day when I was sweating. The fleece lining makes them comfortable on my face. I wear them under my helmet and they fit great, but I think the strap would be tight if it was fitted outside the helmet. Overall though, I'm really happy with them.
"Dakine Pyramid" 9/14/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dakine Pyramid Stud
  • Pros:  Functional, Durable, Looks cool
  • Cons:  Takes a while to put on board,

Experience:   I've had these on my board for a year. None of the studs have fallen off, but I did take time to follow the directions and heat up the sticky pad and the board with a hair dryer before sticking them on. I love the graphic on my board and didn't want to cover it with a stomp pad. One thing I like about these studs is you can arrange them however you want on your board - I actually only used five of the nine studs in a pattern that doesn't obscure the graphic. They're a little less grippy than the rubber stomp pad I had on my old board, but they have worked fine in all conditions. Really the only negative is that they take a while to put on your board in comparison to just sticking on a pad.
"Love my Flows" 8/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow Flite 2 Snowboard Bindings - Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Responsive,
  • Cons:  Take a while to set up right, Heavy,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I rode regular strap bindings for two seasons and then switched to Flows last year. I love them, I definitely won't go back. Biggest advantage is the comfort - I used to get numb toes from over-tightening bindings, especially on my left foot. I tried setting these up at home, but you really can't know how they feel until you ride in them so it took a day on the snow to get them set up right. But once they're set you don't need to adjust them at all. They are much quicker for strapping in, but since the people I ride with still strap in it doesn't really make a difference to me. They seem well made.
