Mid season review - can't complain about what I purchased. The quality gear has really impacted my riding. Everything I struggled with last year is a lot easier, I think a lot of it has to do with the responsive bindings. The long board is a little tricky in the tight areas, but has definately been a plus with all the snow we have had. I have 5 days in Whistler and 5+ days in around the Seattle area and just want more. The only struggle has been waiting for the roads to open because of the winter weather.
