2011-01-30 Sunny days

Posted 01-31-2011 at 11:40 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went snowboarding on Sunday. Decided to take it easy because of the recent stomach flu, so I had no intention of trying anything new or particularly challenging.

The first surprise I got was when i arrived, at 8:20. The parking lot was packed! Turns out the Nancy Greene ski competition was on that day, as well as "Family Day" on Seymour. Oy! The only upside is that most of the occupants of those cars were not skiers or boarders, and most of the rest were competing on the...

Snowboard boots and bindings

Posted 01-28-2011 at 07:15 PM by Jakevendetta

I broke my ankle boarding the other day because my boots were a little bit too big. Now for next season i am looking for new boots and bindings, I am considering Flow because of the ease of use. But I want to keep it under 200$ and get decent boots and bindings. Do you think Flow would be good for me? or is there something else you would suggest?

2011-01-27 Ups and Downs

Posted 01-28-2011 at 03:01 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

What a weird day.

First, I decided to try getting to Seymour using Skytrain and the 028 bus. Of couse, skytrain died as soon as I got on board. The downage lasted just long enough to guarantee that I would miss my connections. So, I went the seabus route and took the Seymour shuttle from Lonsdale. Got there about 10:30, which wasn't too bad. It was pretty empty all day. I think I might have waited 2 minutes on the Lodge chair at one point, but that was the worst.

I did manage to get to Seymour last night. It was a cruddy night, with a constant light rain. I did one run down Mystery and that was enough of that. Went to the bunny slope to do techniques.

Frontside tailpress butter spins are coming along, although as Nev says in the vid, don't expect to be the king at it overnight. I tried a backside spin once, but it didn't go well. No biggie, just need to spend time at it.

Also continued to work on ollies while moving. It's interesting...

Forum Young Blood DoubleDog

Posted 01-25-2011 at 07:11 PM by park_rider

Anyone got any experience on the YoungBlood DoubleDog? Looks like a sick board with some camber tech similar to Never Summer and LibTech. Graphics are dope too.

I really love Forum boards.
