No.. I was going to buy them through sbnet but when I went back to buy them, the mediums had sold out.

I went to Boyne Country Sports in Novi and they had a pair of red ones (don't want red) in size Small... so I tried them on to see how they fit.

I could have went with a small... but it was a little tight in the waist and I was only wearing a t-shirt. If I was layered up... it probably would have been even tighter so I figured I needed the mediums.

Thats when I went back to SBnet only to find they were sold out. But... found them for sale in eBay (new, with tags) for $56 + $13 shipping... so actually came out to under $70. Prob won't be here until next week.

Also another thing I noticed when trying them on at the store was that they do indeed have the snow-gaiters in the legs, which I was told that they didn't. So thats good.


Here is the jacket I want, but its waaaaay too expensive:

Ah, we have 3 of the mediums in stock. Free shipping today too haha. It's okay. So were they baggy around the legs? I tend not to like my pants to be very baggy and Bonfire stuff looks baggy to me.

It would be cool to have a video of our trip out west with me and my buddies.

I'm just not too sure on the editing part and how difficult that is.
That was a really well-put-together video he put quite a lot of time in to it. The more footage you have, the more difficult it will be no matter how "technical" you get with the editing aspect - there's just more stuff to wade through.

Fortunately the basics for you would be pretty easy. For a night like Saturday I had about 25-30 video clips ranging from 10-15 seconds to about 2 minutes. My process goes something like this:

1. Review all the clips individually, usually i do this in fast-forward.
2. Rename the clips so you can identify their content.
3. Keep a list of what timestamps have good footage (e.g., in this clip there is a sweet 360 at the 1:40 mark, etc.)
4. Delete any clips which are garbage.
5. Import the clips to your editing program.
6. Build up the timeline/project.
7. Add transitions, effects, titles, etc.
8. Add music/soundtrack
9. Publish.

For short videos I generally don't storyboard, but if I had multiple days worth of footage I would add that step after #5.

Start to finish it probably took me about 1-1.5 hours to make that 2-minute clip. Steps 6 and 7 take the longest as I normally do and redo these steps to get the right flow. The more footage you have, the longer it will take to sort through it all, and the longer it's gonna take to build up your timeline because you'll want to keep moving stuff around.

I didn't do any color correction, after effects, etc., but that will also increase the amount of time and complexity of editing your videos.

That's weird... not sure why it wouldn't let me select Mediums. Only gave me the choice of Small.

Regarding the baggy-ness: They were baggy but nothing really crazy. The length on the smalls would have been good for me (I usually wear jeans with a 30 inseam.. and that leaves me a little room so I'm not floodin') except for the waist. I probably could afford to lose a few pounds and the waist might have fit better... but I figured with layering and what not, plus the fact that I like to sag a little (not ridic like some of these kids, but not pulled up past my belly button either)... that the mediums would probably work better.

So what I'm getting at is... probably medium baggy-ness? I can take a photo once I get them in the mail if you want me to.

The build quality actually looked really good when I tried them on at the store. The fabric feels soft yet very sturdy. Plus its 10k waterproofing and 8k breathability... both of what I wanted as minimums. Add in the fact that they have the inner thigh vents in case you start getting hot, and the foot snow-gaiters... they basically had everything I want in a pant.

The only problem is now I want to buy more and more new gear... already bought the 2010 Banana Magic ($430) and now these pants ($70) and now I want a jacket... and bindings haha.

Welcome to the club, there are plenty of gear-whores around this forum!

I want the limited edition Union Forces that Porters has right now but I just got a pair of barely used Deltas... hard to justify owning three sets of bindings when you only really have two boards. Guess that means I need another snowboard?

5. Draging clip by clip, crop down the highlights of each clip
6. Drag the clips down to the end of the timeline, most likely where you think the vid will end.
7. Add music/soundtrack
8a. Arrange the clips to match the music.
8b. Add sick transitions as you go.
9. Render
10. Upload to YouTube!

*Save Often!
Reworked Daves list to show my order .

Here's how I would do it:

1) Copy all of the videos I made

2) Send copies to both SMD and David

3) Have them make an edit for me

4) Enjoy two versions of the same shred session video

Definitely save often or better yet set the Autosave to do it for you like every 10 minutes.

You really review your clips in reg speed? I fastforward through most of the shit, then regular speed & slo-mo of the stuff that looks promising. Your step 5 & 6 is the same as my step 6 i just didn't detail it that much

Yeah I like to enjoy everything . For my highlight tape, I just had to go through all my game films(9) and watch every defensive series at 1x.

The more I've been reading on this website... the more I think my board is a little too big for me.

I'm about 5'6" and weigh about 160, size 9.5 boot.

I just bought (a month or so ago) the 2010 version Banana Magic in 157.

My current board is a Ride all mountain 155 and it seemed to do fine.

The Banana Magic's are only offered in 152 or 157 (or 158 wide).


Reading through the 2011 Never Summer review thread, Vman was suggesting the 151 or 153 to people of similar size to me. I don't ride the park much at all, so I don't need a super short board, but I also don't want to have trouble steering this thing down the hill if its a beast.

What size are you guys and what size board do you ride?
