Tail was alright today- too damn bumpy to enjoy that fresh, sticky snow. Else 16:-14 worked quite well for me and I dialed in my flow bindings to hold solid and be actually easy on/off.

Blue Knob on sunday with hopefully a nice flock of friends.

First time at WTail today.

Thought it was odd how the double blacks were groomed, but the single blacks were left in that bumpy powder ride. I got there at 8:30 a.m. to be one of the first people up and it was still a bumpy mess, but it was fun.

You were right. Tail kills Liberty.

Had a blast messing around in the smaller park. I'm new to park riding and I'm fine on kickers and have started to try indy grabs and 180s off them, but having a park with smaller rails to learn jibbing was really nice.

Headed to NY in a week for more boarding. Can't wait.

Nice man! Personally can't wait to check Blue Knob. Seemed quite dope, but no idea if its actually worth the extra hour hike.

Also, would everyone mind tossing a few pix in here to help (me) get better acquainted?

I have my red Nomis getup,


And 09 Splatter w/ gray Ride cargos


And always that blue DC sack.

It's pretty easy to find me on a hill. Head to the harder slopes and look for the guy carving and hopping around on the bumps/mogul jumps in this jacket.



100 percent guarantee I'm the only one wearing it.

Wonder if I've seen you there today... or vice versa. I stuck to the main intermediates for the most part since snow was kinda shitty, didn't feel like doing diamonds too much.

I hung out on the blues alot and a few of the diamonds. Near the end of the day I spent most of my time chilling in the mini park hitting the kickers hard and then working on 50-50s and boardslides.

A few of the trails were just junk because the powder got so ripped up it got sloppy and just wasn't fun. It was like get some speed, start to carve, then hit some huge powder bumps and slow down. Repeat all the way down. Wasn't fluid at all -- but still better than ice pack.

Lol amen. On a side note, waxing- is dry rubbing some skate wax ok or do I HAVE to go the extra miles of buying board wax or doing the whole heated application jazz?

Rub on wax goes off as easily as it rubs on. Just do a heated wax every three to four rides -- two if you're doing a ton of jibbing. That's my rule I follow. I'm sure there's more knowledgeable tuning ppl here that can better answer it.

Only reason I asked was because I don't YET feel like getting some crappy iron and doing that whole jazz. Knowing me, I will sooner than later, but yea. My old board, was NEVER ever waxed since I got it and it lived through 2 of my seasons + god knows how many before me just fine.

So what's this about a trip to Blue Knob? Went back a few pages, but couldn't find any real info. Maybe I didn't look far enough.

Also, hello neighbors!
