2-3-2011- Need a Waxing

Posted 02-03-2011 at 09:48 AM by Tachypsychia (The Snow Ninja)

So I'm taking a day off from the slopes to let my legs recover a bit. Doing all the presses and ollies last night took a good toll on my legs. In the mean time, I need to put a coat of wax on the board. It looks pretty bad. After classes tomorrow I'll spend some time putting a good coat on it and then hit the slopes when they open for night session.

So I've been boarding for about three weeks now total, not counting the one outing I had when I was a wee lad of about seven. The first few days were a complete disaster, and I went home feeling like an inmate at county. I decided just going out on the slopes and hoping for the best wouldn't cut it, and spent my days outside of class researching into riding and the physics of it in general. Being a physics major, I like to know the specifics of things in an out. I also signed up for the snowboarding...

2011-01-30 Sunny days

Posted 01-31-2011 at 10:40 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 06:15 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

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.
