I did the phone thing for a couple years and it was reasonably accurate, but the watch is just so much easier to use! It does seem to capture better data too. If clouds rolled in I used to lose signal on the phone, the watch will even GPS track me indoors.

I got a Forerunner 410 for $165 with the heart rate monitor. Best way to push yourself in a sport is to know how much you're already doing!

Tuning equipment +1, it's worth it's weight in gold if you ask me.

Body armor? Although not NEEDED this is considered essential for some.

And yeah, everyone should try and get a weird board like the Nug sometime in their career...

Edit: oh you already have 2 NS boards... damn.
Haha, yeah I do like my NS boards. I've thought about buying some armor and may still do that. I would like to have a good pair of padded shorts. Any suggestions?

I believe that my next board will be a dedicated pow board. Though unless the weather is better next season for Colorado, not sure how much use I will get out of it. I was thinking of the hovercraft as my next board.

I was also considering BC gear and an Avy class but I don't really have anyone to do those types of things with so it would be hit or miss if I ever used it.

Haha, I've just been thinking this. While I like my Eg2, I was considering getting some I/OX goggles so that I can change lenses when the light is super flat. I was out last weekend with my Eg2 on with no sunlight. I couldn't see any detail in the snow.
