I am just having trouble deciding which board to get! I'm a total SB n00b - only went out a few times last winter and i want to condition and strengthen for the upcoming season - I think it would help to do some balance work for sure...but also, I need to get better at switching edges, and especially carving - right now i have low confidence due to a nasty spill the last time I went out! I'd also like to be able to do some skate trix like ollies and kickflips on it more for fun and to revisit my skateboarding days.
I posted in another forum also looking for feedback on the vew-do, as I have not been able to find too many reviews or comments about them, and I am having trouble deciding which one will be the best for me...so if anyone in here can offer some advice, or visit my other thread, I would so appreciate it!
I checked it out, thanks for the input, I'm looking further into it. The balance is where I lose myself over the summer, this would definately help, I think the idea od a PVC pipe for balance is great too. Just also wanted to tell everyone, I've ordered my new snowmaker! I can't wait now till the temps drop, the guys at the company wer also talking about coming out with a box that can be used for 4 season boarding. I saw a little of it on a video on U-Tube, I'll have to find it again to pass it along, I asked them to update their u-tube so I can check it out, keep up to date with me, SNOWatHOME Ľ Home - Make real snow at home with a snowmaking machine. Wow, great information, I'm stoked!!!
You have got to check this out. I said a few times in the past how I found a company online to make snow before it falls from the sky to help me practice in the yard. Well I contacted them a few times over the summer and was able to come up with the perfect set up for my house. Iím stoked! Iím already on my board and jibbing in my backyard! I made snow 2xís this week already, the temperatures are already cold enough to make snow, can you believe it! The ski resorts are not all up and running in our area, and they normally arenít ready until December. (Although one or 2 have taken advantage of the temperaturesÖ) But with this snowmaker, I have my own ski resort, and backyard terrain park. By the time the ball really gets rolling, (and before everyone else!!!) Iíll be ready for the slopes. Iím coming out full force this year! Here are links to 2 of the U-Tube videos from the company Iím dealing with. I donít want to sound like an advertisement, but these people were great, and if I was offered the chance to perform in their new rail jamÖIíd jump at it! There are tons of videos from them, and they have their rail jam also on the site and on u-tube. YouTube - SNOWatHOME's ultimate winter lifestyle YouTube - DC Mtn Lab 1.5 rare behind the scenes footage . Iíll update more when I really get things on a roll. But again, no better way to practice, I donít know what I ever did without it!. Now my parents and neighbors want to borrow it for Holiday decorating and making snow in their yards. WOW the attention Iím attracting!! Iím stoked! My yard is fenced in, but everyone seems to see the snow flying around above the fence line! I canít say enough about it. I have my own winter wonderland!! Iíll update soon. I want to post on U-Tube myself, but I would rather be the boarder, not the one holding the camera!!
