Those are the ones I have. Put each one where ever you want. I like them. Good grip! I paid around $8 for them at REI. They are Dakine Pyramid stomp spikes or something like that. Dakine also...

I finally had a chance to go out and ride my Arbor Roundhouse CX. This board is so damn beautiful, I was afraid to go ride it! It's like a work of art. Still, I went to ride and it's a very nice...

The lenses are definitely double paned. I paid $165 for these goggles. They're upper end on quality. I put some Cat Crap anti-fog on them. That definitely helped. The moisture still builds up...

Yeah, I doubt I'll give up a helmet. I am not that good! :D My goggles always tend to fog towards the top. That's what makes me think my current helmet is the problem. Also, I'm absolutely...

It is most definitely the inside of the goggles that is fogging. The I/O goggles vent through the top, behind the lens. There is no room between the goggles and the helmet. The helmet is all...

Thanks! I'll look more into the A-frame. It's a good looking board too! But according to the Arbor site, it's only for boots up to size 11. Looking at their board mapping, anyways. Their color...

Goggle fogging problem!

I ALWAYS have problems with my goggles fogging. I started out with some cheap, Scott goggles. I think they were about $25. I recently upgraded to some Smith I/O goggles. The visibility is...

Well, I was 30 years old when I moved up here in 2009. I had never snowboarded before. Honestly, I don't get to get out all that much. If you really want to ride some powder, you're gonna pay. ...

I rarely ride powder. 95% of the riding I do, is groomed runs. If we get a lot of snow, I might get into a bit of powder. But it's groomers most of the time for me. I was reading the guide on...

Thanks for the advice! I kind of figured I'd need the Roundhouse. I'm leaning towards the 162cm since I'm about 6'1" and 220 pounds. Other than my weight, I'm pretty easy on my board. I don't...

Arbor Element RX or Roundhouse RX?

I'm wanting to buy a new snowboard and have been doing my research. I am pretty set on getting an Arbor board based on the type of riding that I do. Problem is, I have size 12 boots. My boots are...

You can get the I/O on Amazon. I think I paid $124. Came with two lenses. The same thing was $165 at REI. They're pretty sweet goggles.

Well, I finally went snowboarding today and wore my Beardski. I'm definitely impressed with it. It's easy to breathe, doesn't fog my goggles, stays put and it's very warm. It's the best face mask...

I love to listen to good music when I ride. It motivates me to ride a little harder, I guess. Anyways, I always wear a helmet since I wipe out a lot. HA! I wear some regular old Sony in ear...

It hasn't been much better in Alaska this year, either. At least here in Anchorage, anyways. I didn't go snowboarding for the first time until last week! We've had snow, but it's been followed by...

Also, it looks like whoever you bought the board from, was regular as well. Look at where the stomp pad is. It's closer to the right foot. That stomp pad sucks too. I have this one and it's...

Help and old man find his 2nd board!
