I'm about to buy a new park board to fiddle around with this year, I am currently riding a skate naner. What are your previous experiences with boards & Brands. Bindings included. I've heard amazing things about Union. Especially the Union Contact.


Optional question to answer. What are the best resorts to ski bum / live near? I'm trying to get out of this east coast no snow zone. Need to see fresh pow every day. I am looking into vail.

Vail, Heavenly, Keystone, and Breckenridge are the most talked about resorts in the US and for good reason. There is also Whistler which is a bucket list item I have.

If you want to live for free in employee housing with 3-6 other room mates, listen to dub step and do molly all the time. Keystone is the place for you.

If you want to live a more modest lifestyle, find some decent roomies and live a little more laid back but gamble at some casinos Tahoe is the place for you.

If you want to live in a city and be less than an hour from a bunch of resorts but put up with a shit ton of meth heads and mormons, Salt Lake City is the place for you.

If you just want to say fuck the states... Girdwood, Alaska is the place for you.

If you want to ride one minute and surf the next, Portland, OR is the place for you.

If you... alright fuck it I'm done.

Karasene, thanks for the awesome reply. Portland Oregon has always been one of the places i wanted to live just for that reason. I also want to (go to) but not live in Utah. Scenery is beautiful but ive heard the community is not very accepting. Colorado is always an option.

He said fuck the states.

Alaska is just one state. By its lonesome.
:icon_scratch:

It's still a state isn't it?
If he said "fuck the states, except Alaska" that would make sense.

Not that it negates his recommendation for Girdwood, but the context is incorrect.

No, I get exactly what you were saying. But I also read into his post that meant something similar to the continental states, etc. But I get what you are saying

Your definition of Keystone can easily apply to Tahoe as well...

What do you mean!? That's exactly what I said.

Yeah you are totally right. I guess to further break it down you would have to analyze north shore/south shore.. Truckee and Kirkwood area are deff more low key than south shore. I couch surfed in all 3 spots while riding over there.


and just so everyone knows I am a big manly hairy dude. I do enjoy the ritual morning sack scratch as well. :eusa_clap:

GreyDragon. If you want to be a smart ass. Go do it somewhere else . So annoying. Yes Alaska is a state. You have to travel by air or sea. Unless you get a passport and drive up through british columbia. Their is a show called Alaska State Troopers. 60% of the time. It snows in Alaska every time. Would you like to know anymore facts about Alaska?

Oh, I'm so sorry Mr. Noob.
Is my correcting your smart ass commentary with facts "so annoying"?

Why don't you try getting your "fuck"ing statements accurate before you post them, new guy. Was trying to sound "so" cool getting in the way of your thinking?
I could also pick apart your comments above for spelling and punctuation, but I will hold back lest I hurt your feelings.

And for the record, you are the one who should go "elsewhere". If you can't take my factual criticism, wait until BA or Shredlife gets a hold of you. Do you know the meaning of the word "carnage"?

Go change your online name to "Mr. Sensitive".

Wait a minute. It wasn't even your post on which I was commenting!
What do you care??

Looks like you want to take The Deacon's place as the resident Internet Police Force.

Btw, your excessive use of quotation marks was fucking irritating.

My first park board was the burton dominant. Great board, it has a flat profile so its like riding a skate board. My new park board is the forum destroyer. It has the double dog profile so you get the rocker play with the camber pop. I highly recommend this board.

Since when does grammar have anything to do with Shredding? Your an embarrassment to the sport. Factual criticism? Like saying "Alaska isn't a state?" You sound like a douche bag, not cool, not anything. Of course we know Alaska is a state. But you know what...Alaska isn't attached to the U.S. So ....if you want to "Escape the states" which was previously quoted. Is what he meant by it. Say i wanted to go to Hawaii to escape the state, can i count on you to be on my forum, being a total annoyance. So once again, if you don't have anything productive to say. Just get out. Better yet. Strap on a pain of skis, and go pizza and french fry yourself down ALTA so that no snowboarder ever has to come face to face with someone as highly retarded as yourself.

Damn, I was all set to "shred" all over your sorry tirade, but it would take too long and would be waaaay too easy.

YOU sound like a moron.
My point about Alaska has already been made, and is accurate. Enough said.
How do you go to Hawaii and escape the state?
Your forum? YOUR forum? Nice, Mr. Owner.
And finally, how long have you been on this forum? Clearly not long, because you would know that not every post on this forum is "productive". Go jump all over Backstop or Chomps for posting yoga pants and underboob photos, since those aren't "productive" snowboard posts. Then wait for the abuse from the rest of the forum.

I still don't know why you care about defending someone else's post. That person hasn't come back on it.

I'll tell you what, while I go learn to pizza and French fry myself to death as you suggest, why don't you ask the forum a survey question, or try to market a new product? You"ll get a litany of positive and helpful responses. The forum members love to help noobs out with survey questions or marketing schemes.

Just trying to help.:thumbsup:
