"First BlueBird Review!" 3/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (16) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Bluebird Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Carving,Chop,Crud,High Speeds,Off Trail,Powder
  • Pros:  Float in Powder, Multiple Sizes, Carving
  • Cons:  No Wide Sizes Yet,

Experience:   So much pressure being the first person to review the Sierra BlueBird. As it happens, I rode this board for its intended purpose, a 1.5 foot BlueBird powder day at squaw. Run 1: Broken Arrow or Tower 16 which is ultra steep and completely untouched. The BlueBird is fast, floaty and lays out an AMAZING slash! A little softer flex than a Malolo allowed me to really tweak slashes. Run 2: Granite Chief which is steep up top yielding to trees and then a normal resort run. The snow here was chopped powder. I was very impressed with how well the BlueBird plowed through choppy snow. I could keep all my weigh forward and man handle chop, where some reverse camber boards get knocked around. Run 3:Solitude, which is an intermediate run. Did the top of the run switch, and half cabed of a small cliff. The board excels at switch riding and can handle good drops. Rest of the day: Mix between groomers and hidden powder. The most impressive part of the BlueBird is its groomed run performance. It initiates a turn better than any board i have ridden this season! I recommend this to guys who like experiencing great carves whether in Pow or just on a groomed run!

"Is this Really a reverse camber board?" 1/26/2010
Helpful Review?   (11) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Great Turn Inititiation, Great Pop, Great Speed
  • Cons:  Stiff at Slow Speeds, Not a 57,

Experience:   Like my title says, I question if the sierra reverse crew is a rockered board. It has all the attributes of a cambered board, such as great turn capacity (cough cough burton hero), ability to go faster than i want to go at times, and ollie power galore. I literally ollied a slow sign flat ground even though my legs were exhausted. I found buttering and riding this board at middle to high speed was where the sierra reverse crew found its stride. If you are a slow techy type rider, I would recommend a softer reverse cambered board. If bigger jumps, long fast runs and bigger jibs are your fancy, than you will appreciate the performance in the sierra reverse crew. Can I add that the graphic is SICKKKKK and classy all at the same time?!

"FunFunFun" 2/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Palmer Flash Twin
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Great for butters, Great for presses, Great for New Tricks
  • Cons:  Chattery when chasing skiers,

Experience:   I own this snowboard and have ridden it on ice, slush, powder and variable conditions. The Flash excels at slow speed snowboarding, such as technical tricks such as nollie backside 180 to switch nose press to revert. Say that 10 times fast and learn this fun trick on the Palmer Flash. Palmer is known for making fast race boards. That being said, the flash does have turn capabilities, but not at the same level as the palmer burn or burton custom x. This is a fun board to compliment a quiver of big mountain boards.

"I Needed These!" 7/16/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Retro Disc
  • Pros:  Cheap, Allows me to Ride my Favorite Bindings, Ready to Go

Experience:   Burton really made a mess with this ICS/EST Junk. I could not find any Burton EST Bindings and I had no way to ride my new custom v rocker. Luckily, I found the Retro Disk, which allows me use any Burton Binding from 2010 or older. I am using 2008 cartels on my custom v rocker with the channel system and love it!
"Comfy and Responsive" 2/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow NXT FRX
  • Pros:  Easy adjustment and Fine Tuning, Steady Pressure All Over Foot, No Broken Straps
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I rode the Flow NXT binding at Alpine Meadows. Alpine Meadows is a great place to test product because in one run, you experience steep open bowls that are both groomed and ungroomed, traditional groomed trails and a terrain park. The NXT Bindings come with aluminum baseplates (more response). I put the bindings thru the ringer, I rode a very aggressive board that requires a responsive binding, I rode choppy show and I raced people. All in All, the Flows passed the test: amazing response, amazing comfort and solid forward lean. After 15 years of stepping forward out of a binding, the rear entry took getting used to, however after a few runs, I trained myself.

  • Name: 2009 Palmer AF Twin
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Great value, Stiff

Experience:   The Palmer Andy Finch is slightly softer than the Palmer Burn making it funner! Still very versaltile for aggressively working the entire mountain. Andy Finch is a great snowboarder and even a better guy and YOU deserve to ride his board.

"More of an All Mountain Freestyle" 4/25/2009
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Palmer Burn
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Great value, Stiff

Experience:   The Palmer Burn is a very advanced freestyle board that holds such a good edge that it can be called an all mountain board. Twin shape, great edge hold and TONS of pop are the traits of the Burn. Don't dog this board until you try it.

  • Name: 2009 Special Blend Mason
  • Pros:  Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   The special blend slim fit pants, like these ones are great for people who want a slim fit pant but don't want to look like they are wearing girls pants. I bought a large which is a little bigger than i normaly wear. I like them for park and spring riding.

  • Name: 2009 Salomon F22
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Warm, Breathable, Waterproofing, Easy in & out, Well known brand
  • Fit:  narrow

Experience:   The F22 is definatley a performance fit and performace flex. By performance I mean that the f22 boot is stiff and holds your foot in tight. Great for agressive fast riders who like to beat skiers.
"Burton Guardian Down Womens Review" 4/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Guardian Down Womens
  • Description:  CHEST: Feels too small, BODY: Feels too short,

Experience:   My GF owns this jacket and loves it! We reccomend that you buy it one size bigger if you plan on snowboarding it. She bought a small and her butt crack hangs out when she straps in and i throw snowballs at it. The style is amazing and it is suprisingly water proof for being a puffy jacket. Tons of girls at Northstar already own this jacket so rock it at Squaw.
"Spread the Margerine" 2/22/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Stunt Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Fexible, Forgiving, Buttery

Experience:   I rode the Sierra Stunt last weekend and it was fun. I generally like riding a very stiff snowboard but the Stunt changed my opinion. The Stunt is soft, flexy and buttery on the mountain. This is definitely a great board for guys who think their current board is not flexible. I learned a new butter combination on the stunt. On boxes and rails, the stunt was stable but flexible enough to learn tricks like backside tail slides. The one downside to the stunt is super high speeds on choppy snow.
"Favorite 686" 2/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 686 KR3W Lumber Jack Softshell
  • Pros:  Baggy Fit, Long, Nice Style
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  686 runs slighlty larger than other brands

Experience:   This is my favorite 686 Jacket for 2010 and you can see me wearing it around the store on cold days (don't worry we will not sell you the one I wear). I am not a fan of layering, so I like that this is a simple shell jacket that give me the freedom to wiggle twist and turn. At first the blue and black color was my favorite, but the black and gunmetal combination really grea on me!

  • Name: 2009 Rome Artifact
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great value, Popular on mountain, Soft

Experience:   Be Careful. Much like the Burton Love, many ski resorts prevent their employees from riding this board based on the graphic. Apparently these resorts do NOT like live nude girls.

  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Popular on mountain, Stiff

Experience:   Sierra Snowboards very own Donald rides the Juicy snowboard. He rides it in the 54 and is a freestyle master on it. I must say that this is not for the faint of heart. I recomend this board for guys who know how to manipulate a board (butters, jibs and jumps). My other hommie rides the 59 as an all mountain board and uses all terrain as his personal terrain park.

Experience:   The Burton Ronin 2L is good but i would spend the extra money on 3L if you are looking for a storm day jacket. A 2L jacket is great for everyday except storm days. I upgraded from Ronin 2L to 3L and it changed my life.

Experience:   I have 3 puffies and you should too. The Burton puffy is my favorite because they have the cool ipod holder/adapter. A puffy is mandatory for night riding and when it is sunny and FREEZING/Windy Days in December and January. Get your puffy big so that your butt is covered

  • Name: 2009 Burton Poacher
  • Description:  WEATHER: Cloudy and Cold, Cold and Blustery Day, CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels true to length, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   I have to question the poacher jacket. Why would a jacket called the poacher have such vibrant and obnoxious colors and patterns? I would think a poacher would be more effective if it was camoflauged and subtle. How cool would it be if the poacher jacket was similar to a ski patrol jacket...then we could go poach everything.

"Ride Alpha Movement Review" 4/21/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Ride Alpha Movement

Experience:   I like being able to review prduct because this is my opinion, not objective facts. I do not like a all aluminum binding. The word is hard to spell, and more importantly metal is a great conductor of energy. What does it all mean basile? It means that ride bindings conduct a great deal of vibration into your foot, up your leg and all over your body. On the upside, they are very light but not worth the vibration in my opinion.

  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Waterproof
  • Description:  CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels true to length, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Burton Ronin 3L technology is comparable to "GoreTex AK" Stuff. Even though it is not gore tex it is just as waterproff. My 3L ronin is going strong for 4 seasons.

  • Name: 2009 Flux Super Titan
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Comfortable
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Burton makes the best bindings in the WORLD. They are the best because they combine plastic for comfort, fiberglass for response and make them easy to afjust. I rode flux bindings for 2 years and i have to say..FLUX makes great burton style bindings. They use the same formula and materials, but add their own bells and whistles. Flux bindings are evern cooler than burton ones.

  • Name: 2009 Burton Malolo

  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Great value, Popular on mountain

Experience:   The Burton Malolo is a mush have if you plan on riding deep powder...especially during a storm. The malolo floats for you, turns for you and charges through crud for you. Therefore, when it is stormy and nasty outside, all you need to worry about is seeing in front of you and the malolo will ride for you.

Experience:   I bought the 154 pulse as a stiffer short freestyle board for me. I did not like it. It was too stiff and heavy to be an effective short freestyle board. I swithched to the palmer flash and was much happier. I think riding the pulse as a big all mountain board is a better bet.

Experience:   Here is the weird thing about the Nitro T1...It is labeled a soft park board, but my buddy Anothony rides the 156 every day at squaw doing crazy big mountain stuff. The point of my story is that the t1 rips the whole mountain, even though is has a freestlye shape. Nitro boards are made in the Volkl ski factory and this is why they are soo good.

Buy this board if you are agressive everywhere on the hill but do not want to be the guy with a vapor or custom x.

  • Name: 2009 Burton Jeremy Jones
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Stiff, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Sluggish

Experience:   I enjoyed riding the Jeremy Jones 156. I was very suprised how stiff this board was considering that JJ is a jib master. I bet the 151 is much softer. One thing really impressed me about this board: It was very flat and stable on a box or rail. I could approach a jib out of control and sketchy, but once i was on it, i was safe and secure. I would recommend the 156 for an agressive freestyle rider.
"Good But not Great" 4/13/2009

  • Name: 2009 Burton Hero
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Popular on mountain, Soft, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Doesn't perform, Sluggish

Experience:   When i first got the Hero i was infactuated with it. But as the season moved on i became increasingly disappointed. Why you ask.... Reverse camber is not made for high level perfomance. When i go full spead at a big jump, i want performance. When i am racing skiers i want performance. The Hero is fun for casual snowboarding: butters at slow speeds, cruising and riding powder on flatter runs. I rode some "man" lines at squaw with the hero and wished i was on a malolo. I rode 2 feet at northstar and had a blast on the hero. If you are a casual rider, you may love this board.
"Love is.....the burton liner glove" 4/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Powerstretch Liner
  • Pros:  Everything: You retain control of your dexterity (fingers), you can flip people off, send text messages, light a lighter, shred, stay warm, miss match, etc.
  • Cons:  Wear out quickly.

Experience:   I go through about 5 pairs of these gloves per season and would not want it any other way. The glover liners are so warm that i wear them all winter (sometimes on powder days) and of course in the spring too. I do not recomend beginers to use them because they do get wet easily. I always put holes in my back hand from dragging it on the snow. if you ride regular, i am willing to swap pairs for you. A little secret: bring two pairs on the mountain and put a fresh pair on after lunch!

  • Name: 2009 Burton AK 3L Hover
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Cold and Blustery Day, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   This is my first time using AK outerwear in 15 years snowboarding and all i have to say is WoW! My AK 3L stuff is better than any other piece of equipment i own. Burton imroved the zippers on the AK giving it better style an function. 3L AK is equivilent to wearing a light weight bullet proof vest. I recommend buying parnts and jacket one size bigger than normal if you like a baggy fit!

  • Name: 2009 Burton Buffer
  • Pros:  Shaped to support foward lean, warm, breathable, stay up on your calf and Tall.
  • Cons:  Expensive

Experience:   Buy these when they are on sale and they are worth the etra dollars! My new style is wearing burton boxers and buffer socks. The socks go all the way to your knee, the boxers half way down your tigh and you do not need to wear thermal pants.

  • Name: 2009 K2 Darkstar
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Great value

Experience:   I have owned 4 darkstars in my life and would ride another one in a heartbeat. The more snowboards i ride, the more i appreciate a traditional twin shaped, medium/stiff board. I like this board so much becuase it has biax fiberglass. this makes the board playfull. Further, the tip and tail have torsion forks which stiffen the darkstar up on the tip and tail. You will suprise how much the darkstar can do on the mountain.

  • Name: 2009 Burton Wheelie Board Case Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Wheels, compartments, quaility
  • Cons:  Storing it when not using it

Experience:   If you ever plan on traveling with your skis or snowboards on a plane...GET a roller bag! 1 bag will work for 2 people. Take the bindings off the boards so you can stack several decks, bindings, boots and outerware in the bag. It really nive having all your gear in one place.
"Burton Ion Review" 4/10/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Ion
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Waterproofing, Easy in & out, Well known brand
  • Fit:  heel is snug

Experience:   OK here is the deal. The Burton Ion boot is a good boot but not great. It would be GREAT if it has traditional laces. This is my first time using the speed zone lacing and i do not think that the added convenience and comfort are worth the lack of customization, peace of mind and comfort a traditional lace boot. I intend to get back on a high end, stiff lace boot for next year. I still recomend these boot to most people, but if you are anal like i am, you might want to stay with a traditional lace

  • Name: 2009 Rome Agent
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great value, Popular on mountain, Soft, Well known brand

Experience:   One of my best snowboard friends AA turned me on to this snowboard. The Rome Agent is one of my favorite types of boards because it is soft enough to do butters, jibs and fun little tricks. Unlike supper Jib Boards, the Agent has some snap and sturdiness for sizable jumps, going mach speeds at squaw and for me as i get fatter!
"Burton Cartel Review" 4/10/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel 2009
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation

Experience:   CARTELS! I only ride Burton Bindings for 1 reason: A 100% platic/fiberglass binding is more durable, reduces more vibration, is lighter and constistant than bindings with alluminum in them. The Burton Cartel is the best binding for the money. In my opinion the Cartel offers the same level of performance as the co2, triad and c60 minus a few bells and whistles. The Cartel comes with significant forward lean built into the design. Forward lean is good because it forces you to bend your knees. When your knees are bent, you will see faster toe and heelside turns, greater ability to absorb choppy show and vairations in terrain and a more aggressive approach on the mountain. Imagine a ninja prepared to attack...that is the stance the Burton Cartel puts you in while you are riding.

  • Name: 2009 Burton Vapor
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold

Experience:   There is always a debate surrounding the vapor...How can a $1000 board be good for intermediate riders? I suggest the vapor for an athletic rider who is intermediate (blue runs) and above. The vapor has amazing edge hold, but is still easy to initiate turns on. The best feature on the vapor is its pop and snap. This board will give you extra air time due to the light weight and fairly stiff flex. I am able to do 540s off small moduls on the vapor whereas other boards will only do 180s and 360s off small stuff. Be ready to catch some air!
