BTW when you see a "noob" on the hill w/ that new expensive flashy jacket/pants/boot/board. remember that they might be working people and they deserve to buy what they please with their hard earned money. Maybe they like dressing up for snowboarding more than actually snowboarding
Haters hate usually cause they don't have what they want.
If you see them around just give them props on their gear or keep it to yourself...

Everyone was a "noob" at one point...
I'm not a great snowboarder or anything far from it sorry if my post sounded up my own arse wasn't intentional.

Yeah my friend wears a bright yellow jacket and green and yellow pants and I can always find him so it's useful whereas I just blend in.

I just think if you look the part you should be able to board the part. It's not like I take the piss or anything. Just what I think.

kayin i wear lots of color..but its not really unique to snowboarding..i wear lots of color in general. just my personality i guess, bright colors make me happy.

here's a pic from last weekend to give you an idea..the pants are borrowed from a buddy cause they matched my jacket perfectly haha. usually they are orange




and one from earlier this season

StarCommand Lately, this:



But I've got a pair of blue pants that I throw into the mix sometimes. The green is my steez, though. Either my black Arc'Teryx or Black "denim" AK depending on how effing cold it is. Matches the Infinity quite well. The Pandora, not so much. :P And the Tiffany's blue Nike Zoom Force 1s don't help the color coordination at all.
