It was my first time using my GoPro (Christmas gift) and editing. I have grown a lot and excited to really experiment this year.

I've got some bindings and boots for sale..and a free helmet.

I need/want some new Dakine mitts for this year, don't get me wrong, I love my ghetto beige leather mitts w/ the reflective stripe and hand knitted liners, but they're not long enough Dx

I'm pumped to ride soon!  I ride at Holiday Mtn and Asessippi.  Alpine snowboarding is very small compared to the corporate-driven freestyle stuff.  I think I'm the only one in Manitoba doing this style of riding, so if you see someone turning like crazy it's likely me.  Come say hi!  I don't jump much now, and stopped doing rails 20-ish years ago.  LOL!

I bought a new board after the end of last season - 180cm Donek Proteus.  I rode a test model in Colorado last year and fell in love.  It's really turny for a 180, and tends to toss you in the air between turns if you're not mindful of your edge pressure.  It's about 1/2-way between the 167 slalom board and the 182 GS board I regularly ride.  I'm eager to make some turns on any/all of them!

(http://i47.tinypic.com/1zbtoo8.jpg)

I've got trips to Alberta (Nakiska) and Colorado (Aspen) planned for Alpine meets in 2013.  AB will have 40 or so participants, CO gets 150-ish.  What a blast to ride with and learn from the pros!

Post by: Corey on October 18, 2012, 02:43 PM
Haha, a lot of the alpine guys ride 170-200 boards.  It can be a macho thing, 'mine's bigger than yours'.  180-185 is about the sweet spot for my style of riding, you can still reasonably do jump turns on steep stuff when you get in over your head.  Anything made in the last 5 years has rockered tips and tails though, so for basic skidding stuff you're riding on a board that's a good 40-50cm shorter as the ends aren't even on the snow.  It's only once you tip it up high on edge that the whole edge engages.  Plus I'm 210 lbs.  ;)

Alpine is different...
Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: jordisonjr on October 18, 2012, 03:26 PM
haha yea i understand how you need a longer board for that kind of stuff.
Have they brought over the reverse camber/zero camber/ camber and reverse combo, technology to the apline boards as well?
In majority of the twin boards its all reverse, zero, or some sort of hybrid cambered boards now.

I was a traditional camber kind of guy, untill I realized that no one is really making them this year any more.
Got hooked up by endeavor snowbaords, so I'm trying out a zero camber board this year to see how I like it.

Yep, traditional camber for most of the board and reverse camber on the tip and tail.  They've been doing that for about 5 years now in alpine.

That actually looks really fun. I like trying to go low like that on my carves sometimes but it's not easy for me lol. I probably don't have the right board/setup for it anyway.

Fixed that for you.  I'm wearing out that red jacket around my left hip.  The right knee and elbow are wearing out from the toeside turns.  Mitts wear out quick too.  ;)

Sorry guys, I don't mean to highjack this thread with Alpine weirdness.  I have mucho respect for freestyle riding.  I got bored with it after many years and switched over to Alpine to refresh my love of snowboarding.

This is a must.
Nothing campares to it.

Only reason I ride park is cause really, thats all there is in Manitoba.
All the larger "hills" that have lifts and such, are still nothing compared to the mountains.

Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: Corey on October 19, 2012, 02:33 PM
Asessippi has some decent steep pitches.  The run under the Porcupine triple-chair is as steep for the first third as a black diamond run in the mountains.  I can ride that run for hours trying to do stuff like the above pictures.  However it gets buffed to ice pretty quick by the people side-slipping down the center.  It's not as stressful as in the mountains though because you only slide 200' if you fall.  But it's narrower which really messes with your head.

I still recall the first time I cockily dropped into a huge superpipe at Whistler in 2000 - I quickly realized I was a dumb prairie boy in way over his head.  I survived one wall (maybe 1' above the deck), chickened out for the 2nd, and side-slipped down the middle the rest of the way.  It was the best spot to be though; the guy ahead of me was doing McTwists and similar a solid 10' above the deck.  No video can convey the epicness of seeing that right in front of you! 

Jeez, I'm pumped to get out on the snow!  Time to do more squats...

Where does everyone take their boards for service? I've always went to Kenaston Gords, but now that it's closed I have to call and find out if their awesome edgeing (sp?) machine is at their only location now.

I ride a 5150 shifter 160 with Technine baller pro bindings, have a few jacket setups as well. For sure down to do a TTI sesh, however you guys all look 50x better than I am haha.

Post by: jordisonjr on October 21, 2012, 02:54 PM
I use a file followed by a diamond stone to take the sharpness off the edges of my board. Sharp edges are your worst nightmare if you ride rails. Don't usually wax my board either haha, usually end up breaking them before they are terribly slow.

They're on Donald now, and yes, their edging machine should be at their new location.

I'm a big fan of Boarders Anonymous, the owner is an awesome dude (as well as the rest of their staff), but I don't think they do any service there, but they'll point you in the right direction
Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: firelizard on October 21, 2012, 11:47 PM
I was under the impression they did do service. The owner was telling me I would get  free service for the first year after I bought my board.

Oh yeah, forgot about that.. My buddy got his DC board from them..

I was just thinking about edge sharpening and such, wasn't sure if they did that.. They probably just do it by hand.. My bad

I want to finally learn how to hit a jump, and how to land.. Wouldn't mind hitting a simple rail/box either.. Last year I had some stupid trouble on standing up for some reason (sitting on ass, feet strapped in...the pop up), maybe i was just tired..I don't want that to happen again, it was embarrassing.

I want to improve my skill at riding/carving while going fast because it give that really awesome feeling.....

Wouldn't mind learning to ride fakie either.

Switch Front and Switch back 5's at the minimum.
Continue filming as always, hopefully more street riding than last season. had all the gear to do it last year, generator, lights banshee bungee, just no snow :unamused:

Forst thing you can do.
Casing a jump is the worst feelig in the world.
Everyone thinks its less scary to go slower over a jump, but in reality, once you case a jump good one time, you'll realize how much more scary it is to go too slow, then to send it properly.

Really dangerous and can do some serious damage to your knees. Its all about commitment.

Doesn't need to be a weekend trip or anything. Even just meeting up and going somewhere for the day as mentioned before would be awesome. If we could get a decent group going I would be down for a trip as well, wouldn't be hard to organize.

JordansJR: I've seen your video's before, you are seriously talented dude. I love watching street boarding videos where guys use the bungee, would love to watch/film or shoot you street riding one day! I'd be down to try it as well but I would probably sketch out and get hurt ha.

Thanks dude. if you're seriously interested in shooting (photos mostly) get at me during the winter and we could probably set something up. I've been wanting to get more photos this year, but when you're riding street spots its hard enough as it is to get enough guys to come out. You need minimum 2 to pull the bungee, 1 to ride and 1 to film.

I have a generator and lights this year (had it last year, but there was no snow) so hopefully we'll get out a lot more in the evenings to some street spots now that I don't have school or a part time job.

When i graduated high school,, I was planning to move to the mountains if I didn't get into the course I was on the waiting list for. Red River called me a friday said I had a spot and that classes started monday, so that kinda killed those plans, but it was probably the right choice. Hoping to get out for a week this year, maybe move out there some day.

Currently riding for Westbeach Apparel, Smith Optics, and Endeavor snowboards, and of course the crew me and my friends have started filming together, Nexgen.

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu268/jordisonjr1/9D66F95A-533F-4601-92A6-A860F4D48783-127-0000000194EE8579.jpg)
That's the board Ill be riding this year.
The "New Standard" 149 from Endeavor. Zero camber, and has the Dow tech2 technology which has the contact points lifted up about 3mm on the nose and tail, so its less catchy like a reverse camber but had more pop than a reverse.

It was a tough decision between reverse camber, and the flat with D2 tech. but I'm pretty excited to give it a shot.
I've always ridden Traditional camber, and was sort of "against" reverse and veiwed it as a "cheater" board, but it seems that lots of companies are leanin towards fazing out the traditional camber, so may as well get used to something like it now.

Super excited for the season, can't wait for the snow to fly, Not that no snows been stopping us from riding though.. :lol:

Far from professional is better than no photos at all hah, so I'm not too concerned.
As you requested, here's an edit I did of last season:
I'm Colin Jakilazek, the one with green union bindings. I did majority of the filming( with a go pro) and all the editing for this video:

I'd like to get 360's and rails, and ski elsewhere than just Springhill all year. Also would like new gear, some new Dalbello boots would be great, and maybe some Klint skis....Oh yeah, I'm a freeskier. Same thing, I just like 2 planks instead of one.

My brother's a really good freeskier, I think he tried a Hippy Killer last year.....It's a unique skier rail move.

Awesome track for that video, Colin. I'm not hardcore enough to start snowboarding before we actually have snow, but I'm sure I'll see you guys at Springhill this winter. Look for the bright yellow board attached to the dude faceplanting at the bottom of the hill.

Does anyone have experience with D3O padding? It's the kind that's soft and flexible but hardens upon impact. Demon makes some shorts with D3O in the tailbone area, and after hitting my tailbone on rails last year, I'm considering getting some. Does it really work? Or am I better off just getting thicker foam padding?

That is basicly my biggest fear of snowboarding haha. Falling on your tailbone hurts on just ice or hard patches if you catch edge, I can't imagine how much it would suck on a rail!

If anybody wants a cheap board to start on, or just to thrash, I've put my Sims/Morrow setup up for sale in the Classifieds section. Firelizard needs some Union goodies.

I'm pumped.  20cm will be a great start to the season.  Pack it down, blow some more on top, and we should have a good local year.  Of course, that's assuming it doesn't all melt.

I'll need to bust out my new snowblower too!

Like remove the old wax from my board and start fresh? It's this **** you spray on and it makes the wax come off easier..Instead of just putting new wax on top of last years wax

My board is like 5-6 years old

I thought you were referring to removing some of the factory wax on a new board.
Hate that sh*t, too slippery haha

I've never waxed any board I own, and they usually see more concrete than a car. :lol:

Not so much.
Always just been affraid of burning through my base, and I guess I just get used to riding boards with no wax.
Usually don't have much issues with it being slow, either than in spring time, but who doesn't have issues then.

Can I get it? Yes. Do I have way of getting it and transporting it that won't end up in me losing my job? No.
Your best bet is to drive by a jobsite after hours and look around. Most jobsites will have ribbed pipe like that, or smooth stuff, hell, even culvert sometimes.

Yea that's how we aqquired this one.
Just thought maybe they sometimes have too much, or scrap pieces laying around or whatever.
Not really an issue now though, as most of the preseason shredding is pretty much done. We've started hitting street spots already, so we prob won't need another PVC until next year :lol:

yea thats true. But i dont have the money to drive from stonewall to spring hill every night. So Stony is my only option. A couple of us are going to try and build/buy a down rail. The season pass just went up this year too. Stony could be a good hill if it was run properly like spring is. I just wish they would sell that place.

Yea Definately understand the whole cost/benefit thing. Wouldn't be feasible to drive all that way especially if you're riding everyday.

I don't even think ill make it out there for opening weekend this year. Usually I do go
Because the itch is unbearable to ride and it's always open before spring. But since there's already snow on the ground, it's probably not even worth it. I've noticed it's gotten worse and worse every year.

Although their kink rail does have potential, if only it would be set up properly

How would you set the kink rail up? seeing as im part of their ""park staff"""  hahaha. We also want to set that flat bar up on a roller so its steeper or something. The way everything is setup is basically up to us so we can do anything we want with the rails this year! yaay aha maybe we can make something thats actually decent

What length of pipe do you need?? Also, get SCH80, it will last longer.

I have a punch of pipe sitting in a POD at my work too, Probably won't have 6" though, but I could get it and give you a solid deal on it.

I'm pretty sure I might have some 3" or 4" though.

I'm pretty sure I have a 5-6' length of 12".. It isn't SCH80 pvc, it's the **** they use as a watermain though...

If you want me to take a look, PM me.




Also, the reason why I actually opened this thread...Frostfire was supposed to be open next week (24th) but due to the BS warm weather, it won't be.. My guess is a couple more weeks. :(

Don't worry, theres no top tier stickers on my board, and we weren't doing anything illegal either. Unless you call snowboarding illegal.

We had a hacksaw to cut down some branches and other various things that were in the way, and a lady called the cops saying we were cutting a fence using a chain saw. Im assuming she called 911, because three cop cars showed up shortly after we started.

Cops came over, asked what were doing and we told them we were about to snowboard down the stairset/hnadrail. They said its probably not a good idea, but what we did after they left was really out of control. They took down mine and a buddys information, and pretty much told us to have a good day.

They were surprisingly pretty chill about it, and were even joking around with us. Usually when cops/security are called on you while snowboarding, it doesn't go as smoothly.

Stiff boards are good for hitting big jumps, an groomers/hardpack at high speeds (mountain speeds)
The flex in a board is more so for rails so you can press out tricks much easier, although a board thats too soft will wash out on jumps/harsh landings, so you need to find an inbetween for what you like.

Softer boards also make it easier to float through powder, although where your stance is positioned on the board also helps with that.

A Park board with a mid range flex (4 to 7, 0 being a wet noodle, and 10 being a piece of concrete) should be able to handle anything you through at it in terms of "high speed" runs in MB. I've rode my park boards in the mountains, with a centered stance, and relatively soft flex in powder and on groomers, and yea it was difficult in powder with a centered stance, but had no issues with washing out on the groomers.

Makes sense.. I think I'm going to stick to my current board for another season.. can't justify the expense atm.. Especially since I've only hit a jump like <5 times, at when I did, I would be EXTREMELY surprised if I got a foot of air (was trying to get comfortable with it...)

Yea for what you're doing, there's really no sense in changing.
Even the boards I ride are pretty soft and handle the jumps around here (20-40 footers)  pretty good.
This would come into play with larger stuff like 60, 80 ft + sized jumps.
Nothing you'd ever hit in MB.

Keep your board waxed, land on your ass, not your wrists.

Falling on your wrists 2-3 times and you're done for the day... Everyone puts their hands out when they fall, don't do that....Or get the Dakine wrist guards.

First time I ever went snowboarding I fell backwards like 3 times and I was done for the day, my parents got me a days worth of lessons and I sat inside for like 3 hours because my wrists were too sore to even take my boots off.

Realize that you're going to fall and crumple as early as you can rather than doing a stiff ladder-falling-over slow fall. 

Make a fist as you fall, and try to land on the bottom of your hands.  i.e. the part you'd hit on a desk when you're mad.  Supposedly that's the strongest orientation to hit the snow.  I always remember that tip just after I come to a stop.  ;) 

Take a lesson.  That will give you the least pain.  The Asessippi school coaches look pretty awesome.  The folks at Holiday seem to be decent.  I'd pass if it's the same lady with the long grey hair teaching at Frostfire.  She can't actually snowboard, so she just walks with the group.  Nice lady with very good intentions, but you can't teach something you can't do.

I'll be lucky if I get out 5 or 6 times a winter lol. Board/Bindings have a full warranty for two years, but I don't know how well they stand behind their warranty.

Thanks dude, riding a 2012/2013 Endeaver new standard, with last years union DLX.
Was on an 07/08 Dc PBJ since DC started making boards, rode one for a year, broke it and got a new one on warranty, broke my arm 2nd time riding it, so it was good for the next season, then i broke that one and ended up getting a good deal on the same deck for the next season.

A new deck was well overdue, and endeavor was willing to help me out this season so I picked up a new standard from them. Rode it twice and love it so far.

I don't know what you look like xD hahaha

I wasn't hitting any jumps or anything, I was just there to do a tiny bit of riding and to try out my new bindings (K2 hurrithane)

I had some embarrassing and stupid falls.. both at the tow rope haha, went to go stop and put my toe edge down too soon and face forward, then I leaned back to much and smoked by back/neck/head down.

Also, forgot how hard the tow rope is on your wrists after awhile.

I wear a blue 686 smartie jacket, grey ripzone pants and I ride a Lamar board that has a big ass sword on it, and my bindings have smiley faces on them :)

It actually is a requirement for anyone riding contests that are held throughout Manitoba.

I've never worn a helmet up until this past weekend. And I've hit some gnarly stuff before haha.
I got hooked up by smith optics this year, and they happened to include a helmet so I figured why not, if I have it, I may as well put it to use.
It definately takes some getting used to, but so far its not too bad.

I always wear a helmet. I started off not wanting to, being a kid way too cool for it and all. Then I hit my head a couple of times, which is way more embarrassing than wearing a helmet, when you know you could have worn one but didn't, and people are like "why aren't you wearing a helmet?".  So that put an end to that. And now I seriously don't understand why someone would choose not to wear one, some insight into that would be appreciated.

Yea I've been riding for, i dunno, say 5 or 6 years?, and I've never worn one.
Even riding park, or street, never wore one.
Got wrecked two years ago down a stair set, and needed emergency surgery on my wrist, 6 pins and a screw put in it, and then I started wearing wrist gaurds after that just cause I fell on it a few times after it was all healed last year and it was still super sore so I put those on, and It kind of got me thinking about a helmet this summer, and I was till kind of on the fence about it untill this opportunity came along.

I've been pretty lucky, the worst time I hit my "head" was just a massive faceplant.. My braces cut up the inside of my lips pretty good. Mostly when I bail, I land on my wrists,ass and knees, or if I know it's coming, I'll just kinda "lay down", that's the best way I can describe it haha

Which wrist guards do you use? I've been thinking I would like some but I find them incredibly uncomfortable. I found Flexmeter guards online, they're interesting. Rather than putting a stiff plate under the wrist, it braces it from the top, keeping it from bending too much. They look like they might be more comfortable to wear, but they are a little expensive. So I'm open to recommendations!

Edit: link to those Flexmeter guards:

As much as I hate Burton, these are what I wear http://www.burton.com/red-protection-mens-wrist-guards/229712,default,pd.html.

There's still a ton of movement so you can move your wrist however, but it braces from the back of the hand as well. Also has padding on the inside, but its pretty soft.
I find these ones super comfortable and you only really notice tehy are on when you actually put them to use (falling)

I got a pair for 40 bucks from (as much as I hate referring people to this "shop") NBS.
Which is about what they go for online after shipping too.

Not sure how well these would stop beginners from breaking, as they usually just put their hands flat out and thats how they commonly break.
But with my surgery, i'm unable to bend my wrist back as far as a normal person can (i will never be able to do flat pushups again, just for an idea of the range I have) and these braces holy my wrist to a point just before it causes pain to bend back any farther. Hopefully that makes sense.

We live in winnipeg, 90% who snowboard (the other 10% being on top tier) snowboard to ride park.
You actually get better at riding park lapping a 3 feature line than hitting 30 different features in a row that a big mountain may have, becuase they have different rails set up.

When you try and learn a  trick in a small park, you try it once and 30 seconds later you are trying it again, not 30 minutes later, like in the mounatins when, by the time you get back to trying it again, you've forgotten what you were even trying to learn. IMO, if you're into riding rails, and you want to get good quick, its a slight advantage riding a small park like what we have here.

This is why you see so many pros coming out of smaller "resorts" in minnisota and the midwest, because they just lap parks all day, and thats why most of them are rail kids, cause that's what we grow up on.

My question is, why do people pay to ride stony when the park is garbage.

Stonewall to spring everyday would burn a huge hole in my pocket for gas. Stony might not be the greatest and yea we all know it sucks, but its our hill and were going to try and make it better this year, some of us are trying to save some money and make a down bar so we have one good rail.

I dont like riding a huge stance, I dont see the advantage of it. Mines actually centered in the middle of the board kinda hard to tell since its a park board though.

Yea, that drive being a reason I can udnerstand. I know a coupe kids in EK who drive all the way to stony to ride daily. That's pretty poor on the owners part that you guys have to save up to buy your own rail to rip. That yellow "down" rail has been there since before I started snowboarding.

I don't think you were one of the guys (could be wrong) but just about everyone in that video had the above described appearance, aside from a couple shots.

Thats true though alot of guys are switching up their stance really close. I just hate people who ride boards that are half their size

I'm about 5'5", maybe, and I'm on a 48 or 49, although Endeavor has the longer effective edge is it actually rides a couple mm longer than the physical length of the board is.

I had a friend give me his starter board maybe 6-7 years ago when he moved. Its all firefly stuff (board,boots,bindings). The board was pretty thrashed and was beyond repair so i purchased this one to replace it. Im still going to be using the firefly bindings and boots as i am on a severe budget and will most likely pick up some new bindings and boots next winter.

Ive only been out snowboarding maybe 5-6 times in my life. i always used to work weeknights and weekends while going to school full time so i never really had time to go out consistently. Now that i have more time i really want to take up snowboarding as a hobby and keep at it so rather then renting boards all the time i thought id buy one and save some money.

went to assessippi yesterday and it was pretty good... not that busy either! but the snow is pretty hard and they dont have the good terrain park up yet. Robbin run one or whatever was pretty decent either way.

hoping to head west this season :(

Went to Asessippi yesterday, had an AMAZING time. lol'd at the "Slow" signs, only followed the recommendation a couple of times.

Some stupid ****ing older (40s) man on skis decided to be a complete dumbass and stop and stand right where people get off the lift, so I had to try and avoid him, ended up falling sideways so my right hip was laying on the tail of my board with my front foot still strapped in. Torque'd my ankle a bit so we called it a night.. This was 30-45m before close though...

10/10 would go again

This. The best way to start is to rent equipment, make sure it's something you'll actually want to sink money into. Because it can get pricey if you buy everything you'll need.

I agree..

Another avenue is to talk to knowledgeable people... I'm a big fan of the guys at Boarders Anonymous, my buddy walked in there and they talked him through it and asked all the right questions (what kind of riding are you going to do, etc) and they put together a set up for him...also gave him a great discount because he bought ALL his stuff from them. Don't go to Sport Chek/etc...

I want to go snowboarding, but my buddy who I usually go with has gone to Sask. for a month to finish his pilots license..Someone adopt me as a snowboarding buddy...please?

Gonna add on :D

*Wool Ski/Snowboarding Socks - Screw cotton/polyester.
*Toque
*Face Mask/neck tube thingy that covers your face too (I CANNOT stand the cold air hitting my face when I go down)
*Good gloves..I use mitts because gloves kinda blow.
*Belt for your snow pants (trust me)
*Wrist Guards if you're new
*If you wear glasses..Look at Gordini goggles, they're the only brand that I've found that fit over my glasses, and are a decent price (Mine are around 50-60)
*I always bring a tshirt,long sleeve and my under armor "cold gear" long sleeve, and a warmer hat... Being too cold/hot sucks.
*Make sure your jeans can fit over snowboarding boots Skinny/Slim fitting jeans will not go over...Pretty much need a min 17" leg opening to go over boots..

I may be at Holiday on the 19th.  Red jacket, white helmet, looking like some kind of idiot skier/snowboarder love-child.  :banana:

The most important part of getting started is warm, but layered, clothes!  It sucks to be cold, and sucks almost as bad to be sweating because you can't remove a layer or two.  Pay for the lessons, your butt and wrists will thank you later!  You think it may not look cool to wear a face mask, but it looks way cooler than having huge blisters on your nose and cheeks for the next couple of weeks from frostbite.  If you have insulated overalls from a European wind turbine company, you'll fit right in at Holiday!  :D

Flying.  Flights were $350-ish round trip.  I can't drive there and back for that cost!  It's always the 2nd week in February, right after X-games.  Riding from Saturday through Friday with Tuesday as a rest day. (legs =  :'()  Honestly, it's a bunch of guys on hardboots carving everywhere.  Not much fun to tag along unless you like steep groomed runs.

What murderjetz said, that 10 lift deal is too good to pass up if you go enough.  Holiday is bloody expensive for food, that's why I always have a good breakfast and stop at BP in Morden on the way back.  I didn't care for Frosty's food at all either though.

Old man trivia: Holiday Mtn didn't allow snowboarding until the early or mid-90s.  The owner (I think he was the owner) was quite upset about being asked about it at a ski trade show, saying how he'll never allow such a 'terrible' activity on his hill.  He went on a mini rant to me about it.  My, how the mighty dollar changes people's opinions... 
Every hill in the province would be out of business if snowboarders were not allowed :lol:

Interesting article:  Snowboarding's declining popularity - http://travel.nytimes.com/2013/01/20/travel/has-snowboarding-lost-its-edge.html?pagewanted=all

I definitely noticed this in Alberta last weekend.  There were WAY more skiers than snowboarders there.  It's the other way here in MB, but the # of skiers is increasing. 

An interesting post from Sean of Donek Snowboards on the topic:
Quote (selected)
This topic is beyond a simple explanation. There are so many things wrong with the way the majority of the industry has done things.

The industry has put all it's focus on new snowboards with reverse camber technology making instant experts (or at least intermediate) riders. They have abandoned almost all the aging snowboarders. If you look at the numbers, older snowboarders are leaving the sport. One explanation is that they are having kids and don't have the budget or time. I think the explanation being ignored is that the upper level riders have been abandoned by almost every brand. Reverse camber is widely considered useless by most advanced riders. Focus by the big manufacturers and media on freestyle and park riding turns off people who just want to go out and ride for fun. It's amazing to attend industry events and find that almost everyone has blinders on. They really believe that 95% of the riders on the hill spend the majority of their time in the park. If they would simply open their eyes, they would see how far from reality this is.

The simple truth is that the industry does not have a clue what the average rider wants to do with a snowboard because they don't listen to anyone except the small core group of people they employ. The people running these brands must mature as well and I think there is resistance among upper management to let this happen for fear that they will loose their core image. The simple fact is that the core image is no longer working. Aging snowboarders will continue to leave in droves if their needs are not met. This issue can not be met head on by one company. It must be an industry decision, or at least one that is supported by a few companies.

The industry focus is solely on generating new snowboarders with total disregard for for retention of existing snowboarders.

BTW: Donek's business is growing very rapidly, he just added a 2nd CNC machine to shape cores last year.  He gets it.  Plus he's a cool guy to boot!

He goes around asking a BUNCH of people at an event if they know who White is, and they're all fanboys, and they ask about Torstein (himself), and no one knows ****..even though the dude's amazing

Thats mostly likely because he probably asked the people who stictly came to see sean white.
If you were to ask any real snowboarder if they knew who torstien was, they would know.

Definately not denying that Shaun White is a good rider, however, he is a sell out in my opinion.
He started making bikes, scooters, and gum. I kinda think hes a goof and really only rides contests for the money, beacuse he knows hes going to win (in half pipe at least)

However, thats just my opinion.

That's true, and I agree with your point about a lot of the people in the crown just being fanboys going to see him.

Shaun White isn't a very good rail rider either. He's insane in the halfpipe though, skate or snow. But what kind of snowboarder needs a gum sponsor or their own video game? He's kinda like the tony hawk of snowboarding, the general public think hes amazing but the majority of people who actually skate/shred think there too mainstream and sellouts.

I agree with this 100%. There are many others that are better but just dont have the spotlight on them yet.
Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: jordisonjr on January 17, 2013, 12:34 PM
I'd have to disagree with not being a good rail rider.
He used to ride rails, when he was younger (few years ago) but not so much anymore.
He's also one of the few that can triple cork now. (Just saw this today, recently landed it)

But yea, not really a fan, nor will I ever be a fan. There's multiple riders who are far better, and deserve far more credit than White, and Igor pretty much nailed it with that statement.

If any of you had the chance to make millions at a job that most consider a hobby, are you gonna say "nah, I don't want people to call me a sellout."? It has nothing to do with being the best, it's all about who you know and how you present yourself.

Good point.
You're right about the mllions of dollars thing.
But the thing is, before that, he was alrady backed by Burton, and Redbull ( not sure who else, but those were two huge sponsors he had) who were already throwing millions of dollars at him to ride. SO to go and start making scooters, and bikes, and other crap that really has nothing to do with snowboarding whatesover, kind of makes him a sell out in my opinion.

I really would have a hard time myself endorsing my own line of bikes and scooters and gum, after being rich as sht already by two of the biggest brnads in snowboarding/action sports.

No..The best one was when I hit the button.

Have my board/leg slide out from under me and landing on my back hurt like hell, but doesn't hurt today, which is weird.



OH. Let's not forget the high (low?) point of the day... Shaun and I trying to find our server on Facebook... and contemplating showing her a picture of 2 girls in bikinis (that SHAUN found) on a beach and saying "Is this you??" :lol:


Edit..again... Let's not forget Shaun and I (well mostly Shaun) beat boxing dubstep on the chairlift.

How is FrostFire's grooming now?  I used to love FF, but the old man started leaving huge steps between groomer passes.  It was like riding a street bike off road for me!  I haven't been back for 2 years now.  Last time I went I did one run, got my money back on the lift ticket, then drove to Holiday. 

The snow was good at Holiday today too, it groomed out nice.  No waiting in lift lines when it's -23C!  The darn mountains have spoiled me; I got bored and started trying to carve switch on the alpine setup.  Switch skidded turns  - no problem. (aside from the enormous heelside blindspot!)  Carving switch - not so good... 

3 weeks until I'm in Colorado!  :D

I just got back from Frost Fire today and it was great. Definitely not Revelstoke or anything but the groomer did a great job and he left almost 15 to 20 feet in most of the runs ungroomed for some additional fun.  It was all blowed in and made for a great day minus the ridiculous wind. For living in Manitoba and having a decent little hill 2 hours away it was pretty great. Better day there than I have ever had at Holiday or Assessippi.

I fell at least 6 times. Plus I bailed getting off the chair lift at least twice. I wasn't playing it safe at all. The reason I needed to nap is because I DID fall like three times in a row and I was getting real grumpy.

Ohh okay.. I didn't see :P I was going too fast :D

Good thing you had a pliance bucket!

Those stupid chair lifts there are stupid.. I fell numerous times coming off them as well... My shoulder is still sore from landing really stupidly, and I'm lucky I didn't destroy my lower back...

All 100% blue bee's wax. In the video I was wearing yellow pants and my friend who is also featured is wearing blue pants. I would say I get over $1000.00 worth of lift tickets per year, mix of mountians and local riding, but I get some for free ;) Thanks for asking Wade.

Where is Grouse?

You will love Frost Fire. I would describe it at half the runs as Holiday but the runs are twice as long. My tradition is to stop off at the Winkler McDonald's before driving back into the city. It is my absolute favorite McDonald's! If you are going on a Sunday watch out for all the traffic in Winkler. People are cut throat when it comes to getting a parking spot for church.

I believe they are fast. Compared to some McDonald's that I have been to in the city, I wouldn't even call McDonald's "fast food" anymore. The prices are always going up as well.

It is a busy place and therefore I always get very fresh food. Hot out of the deep frier and into my mouth.

I guess I have good luck since they have always been good to me and never once have messed up my order.

Funny now that I think about it everyone stares at me when I go there. I guess there isn't that many asian people that live in that part of town or I have **** on my leg, meh.

It is my absolute favorite McDonald's! If you are going on a Sunday watch out for all the traffic in Winkler. People are cut throat when it comes to getting a parking spot for church.

Grouse is in BC. Its one of the 3 mountains side by side.

It was really good. I went at the end of february and it was fairly warm up oh the mountain. This caused some sections to melt and freeze in the shade but the runs were really fun. I couldnt even get to ride most of them due to time constraints.

Correct GoPro HD 1. I have played around with the different setting but love R4. If you look at my video description it says that I use Windows Movie Maker to edit my videos. I don't make enough money to be able to afford a Subaru, which means I can't afford nice editing programs :(

I am getting quicker with editing and story boarding so I would say an hour to edit 3 hours worth of footage. That is after I took some time to skim through the footage.

If anyone is looking to get a new board, a buddy of mine has a brand new DC Tone that hes looking to sell.

If you remember a few months ago, i posted a stolen board, well, he ended up buying a new board (DC tone) and rode it for about a week. Whoever stole his old board must have relized theyd have no hope of riding it or selling it locally, so they brought it back to his house one night, so hes currently riding the stolen board, and looking to get rid of the new one he bought.

So if anyone wants a good deal on a basically brand new board, let me know and I can get more info.

Post by: Corey on February 01, 2013, 10:36 PM
Yup.   The camera distorts things a bit, but it's that general shape.   Take the big nose and tail off a freestyle board, make it longer, narrower, directional, and about 50% stiffer.

I'd say that's a reasonable price for board and bindings.
Resale isn't that great on used gear but if you can get that much for it, Definately do it!

I luhv my K2 Hurrithane bindings... I think I paid like $200 for them? Idk if you want to spend that much though.

http://www.sportchek.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=11611748&cp=3733354.10968095.3767838.3767855.3758839 I have these boots, but last years model..I love them..Just get any boot that feels good around 100-150.. I've never had a solid one piece boot..meaning that it doesnt have a removable liner-thingy... I'm not sure which is best, but I've never had any problems with my boots...buut jsyk.. When I first got my Burton Invader's..they hurt the sides of my ankles just from rubbing up against, they break in, most liners do that so they form fit your ankle for awesome support and such..You can break them in faster by taking a hair dryer to it and getting it nice and warm and then putting them on and tightening them up...They were only uncomfortable for a couple of hours anyways.

Stay with the same pricepoint for bindings..I wouldn't trust a $70 pair...Ride,Forum,Burton,Flow,K2,etc..

As for pants, I've always just had a pair of $90 Ripzone Trilogy/Core pants... Just find a pair that's insulated (there's a lot of pants that are just "shell" pants) that have some good pockets with good zippers (I keep my wallet and keys in my snowpants...) and vents are needed...Grab some DC/Ripzone/Columbia.

I've always found North Face **** to just be ridiculously expensive and not worth it.

Depending how cold it will be, or if you're going to be boarding in colder weather...Look at Under Armor Base Layers...I have a long sleeve top and it kicks so much ass....  http://www.sportchek.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=13028870&cp=3733354.3767836.10853461.10853463.10853465.3744801

Also, you need snowboarding socks..Regular long cotton socks will not do the trick and you will hate yourself for wearing them. Get a pair of HIGH (up to your damn knee) wool snowboarding/skiing socks. Wool breathes and wicks moisture/sweat away from your feet...Cotton lets it pool, and when that happens you get cold...I just picked up a pair of DeFeet socks from MEC for like $20ish, and they're pretty good...just a little tight to put on.. Pretty much just grab any wool sock.

I think I said more stuff then what you wanted to know but w.e

Also, even though I listed Sport Chek's website, don't get your **** from them.. They're ****ing retards.. I wanted some boots from them, told them a pair I had on wasn't fitting good and they were uncomfortable, so they tried to sell me $50 insoles...I let them grab a pair off the shelf and cut them to fit my feet/boot and then left without getting them :>

For bindings, i'd suggest Union. If you're just looking for something cheap thats gunna get you out there, go with Union DLX. I bought mine of dog funk last season (and they were the current season model) for 150 bucks I believe, shipped, with Capita's movie (worth about 50 bucks) so it was a pretty good deal.

There might be some cheaper options out there for bindings, but probably not as good of a bang for the buck. I'd try and avoid shopping at places like sport check, and avoid the brands they carry such as lamar, 5150 etc. (K2 and Burton being the exception, but they'll be pricey)

If you're looking for a cheaper board, but good shape, an buddy of mine is selling his DC Tone (or ply, cant remember which model) 154.5 and he's likterally rode it for a week. His board got stolen, so he bought this one, then he got it back. I think he only wants 250 for it, and its basically brand new.

Thats probably the best deal you're going to find rght now, last time I checked on kijiji, everything was extremely over priced, and for a new board you'll probably be looking at minimum 300 plus tax, if you're lucky.

If you're going to go for a new board, stay away from Technine. They'll break, plain and simple. Top sheets delaminating is pretty common with their boards, and it just looks bad. They'll break in all sorts of ways if you ride your board like I do.

Not sure if this was the advice you're looking for, but if you got anymore questions let me know!

How about boots?
Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: themikewoo on February 13, 2013, 09:21 AM
Like someone stated above. Spend at least $150 on boots. Why? The more you spend the better they are made.

Example my Ride boots I spent $240. They have no laces. Two simple pull systems that lock and I am done. I can get my boots on in one minute. Boyfriend has cheap $100 boots with laces. Takes his sexy ass five minutes to put on his boots and he has to re-tighten them multiple times a day.

I'd have to disagree.
The type of lacing system is all personal preference. I use a traditional lacing system, and proobably always will unless it gets phased out by manufacturers.
Doesn't really take any longer than a BOA or any other fast track lacing system.

And saying that you must spend over a $150 dollars on boots is a pretty poor way of determining a good boot or not.
Many good deals can be had for 150 or less.
I bought my 32 lashed for under 150, and in my opinion are better than any $300 burton boot.

I just got back from a week in Colorado.  Great fun!  Caught a toe-edge on ice when moving fast - was certain I broke a rib but was totally fine an hour later.  LOL! 

Tip: Put the MF-ing bar down if your chair has it.  We watched a 12-ish year old kid fall 25' to hardpack at Snowmass because him and his buddies/parents/whatever were too cool to put the bar down.  He dangled for 5 minutes or more with the guy beside him holding his jacket, and the 2nd guy over holding the guy doing the holding.  He finally slipped right through.  He did catch the edge of the air bag that patrol had down below him while they were rigging up ropes, but it still didn't end well.  Yikes.  Patrol was working on him for 20+ minutes, I left before they moved him.  Stuff happens; put the bar down and save your day/year/life.

The sun was out on Saturday some friends and I got some filming done. I haven't done an edit for quite a while and I had the itch to get another one done so I threw together this quick edit.

I didn't want to use all the footage from the season so it's short  but to the point. Check it out:

It sounds like (http://asessippi.com/calendar.php) the parks are going to be busy with a slopestyle contest, but I'll be camping under the Porcupine chair for most of Saturday and Sunday.  That's the steepest run I've seen outside the mountains.  If you can own that run, you're good on 95% of groomed terrain in the mountains.  My 182 board loves that pitch!

If you have the Netflix you can watch the art of flight on there but also there is a couple hour making of documentary thing as well. Definitely worth checking out.

Also anyone who is into that type of film should also check out That's It That's All it is the movie that came just before art of flight. Same concept and also looks great in Bluray as well.

I don't remember them having a HUGE selection on boots when I went there tbh..

I got my boots from Gords.. Check them out.. They're on Donald.

Sportchek has a decent selection, just don't let them try to sell you those stupid insoles instead of boots that fit comfortably.

Kings on Portage has a garbage selection, never looked at Kings/Royal Sports on Pembina..I'm not sure what they have.

Check out NBS on Taylor too.

Insoles provide added cushion when landing big tricks off rail/jumps. It reduces the stress of the impact on the bottoms of your feet, creating a more comfortable ride.

Most higher priced bindings have extra padding on the soles as well to help take the impact of the landing.

I've got a couple new edits up that I don't think I've posted yet.
First one, a park edit that I filmed with some buddies at spring hill, mostly filmed in one day:
http://vimeo.com/61434258

And then one from my trip to Big White. We got quite a bit of snow and were more concerned with riding then filming. I've always wanted to have a powder edit though of tree runs and site hits, so we filmed like two runs each, and this was the result, essentially cut up into one run.

Just took an old ski pole, cut it down to size, used a vice/hammer to flatten the end out, drilled a hole and put a tripod mount on it. Threw some hockey tape around it before the tripod mount just to absorb a bit of vibration.

In total it cost me 7 dollars.

Hey guys currently in Giant's Ridge sitting the last day of riding out. Apparently yesterday my buddies and I were going off this berm, landed it once so next time I wanted to hit it bigger. Have two angles of me just bailing, cracked my helmet, concussion, things are starting to come back into the proper order. Sucks big time lol. Going to be off work for a little while to I'm going to try and get the video on YouTube in the mean time.

That sucks Mike, rest up well!  Read up on second concussions, it'll make you stay off the hills for the rest of this season.  One concussion is bad; any head impacts in the weeks (maybe months) after that are hyper-serious. 

I'll be at Asessippi the next two weekends.  Woohoo!  Even better - my wife suggested it.  :)

Hotdoggin' 2013 contest today at spring hill.
Ended up taking 3rd in rail Jam, and was the 4th last eliminated from snow dice.
It was an awesome time, and I usualy hate contests.

The rail jam was basically me and 10 of my friends riding together, and it really didn't feel like a contest, so thats probably why it was so good.

Assessippi was awesome! My board is completely destroyed though, partly due to some dick who didn't want to wait in line at the terrain park riding over the nose of my board and ripping part of the top layer off. Oh well, gives me an excuse to grab a new park board.

Also, grabbed a season pass to Assessippi for next year. I have a 40$ gift certificate for assessippi that expires next weekend (31st) that I cannot use, if anyone wants it for dirrty cheap or possibly free shoot me a message. Help me find someone to use it so this doesn't go to waste

I slammed super hard Saturday at Asessippi, right under the Porcupine lift around 2:30.  Thought it might have been broken ribs, but it's 'heavy soft-tissue damage', basically cartilage/tendon damage where the ribs meet the breastbone.  Ouchie.  My season is done.  It only hurts if I move or take a deep breath.  :(

I was having a great day up to that point.  Some random camo-wearing slightly-drunk guy in the lift line just after lunch: "Are you a pro snowboarder?"  Haha!

Cant believe what a blast this winter was. From going snowboarding once ever 4-5 years to once every couple of weeks was great!

It's fun working with a great photographer.  He's shooting with a 10mm lens, my left hand actually passed right below his lens at about 30 kph (a few frames later).  Freaky but the shot turned out! 

Cool video Shaun!  Mike, your video is listed as private.  I'm very interested in private videos. :hurr:  Please PM me an alternate link.

Which mount do you use. I find the helmet mount is garbage because you can`t see any of the rider, just the scenery. Thinking of trying to mount it on a ski pole for next season.

Awesome!
Up top was a little chilly, still above zero though. Kinda slushy for the most part, from what i understood it was above average temperatures though. ON the mountainwas around 10 - 15 for the whole week, and in the village was mid to high 20's. It was unreal.

Although the walk through the village back to the condo in gear was pretty brutal just cause it was so hot.
The first chair ride up there was no snow, and thne you could take a second up and thats where you could start riding. Coming down to the village there was a small path of snow that you could ride all the way down but it got pretty sketchy and rock filled closer to the end of the week. So we just downloaded on the chairs for most of the days.

Even though I am here mostly for car stuff this is actually the thread that made me sign up.  So I want to ask if anyone wants to go snowboarding this winter.  I actually made a Kijiji ad for it and have had some interest but no one stepping up and committing. Here is the link but I will copy and past the ad here.

HI!

I am making this ad to ask if anyone is looking forward to snowboarding this winter in Banff, Fernie or Revelstoke.

I've worked out some packages and for about 600-700 we would get 4 or 5 lift tickets and 5 or 6 nights stay.

Only things not included are, the drive (gas) and food.

That is the pricing for splitting a room 2 ways.  If we split it 4 ways it gets even cheaper...

I am 29yrs old and I'm looking for some serious people to make this a real snowboard trip.  What I mean by serious is ready to spend the money and do this very very soon.  Lots of these deals are early booking deals.  For example, 60 days in advance gets us 20% off packages.  Banff wants us to book before nov.15 to get better deals.

I am looking at making 3-4 trips this winter but I am putting time aside for the first week of January.

If anyone is seriously interested in going to Banff/BC please let me know so we can have a plan before snow comes.

My name is Johan and I want pow!!!

http://manitoba.kijiji.ca/c-community-activities-groups-SNOWBOARD-TRIP-W0QQAdIdZ525705968

ps. I also have a technine 151 with bindings for sale.

I have been to Banff and Silverstar. Both were crowded and over prices. That " mountain tax" really hits yeah at those places. Now comparing those two places to Whitefish, Big Sky, and Bridger Bowl; no lines, fair prices especially for lodging, and I would say all mountains were very similar.

Except Big Sky was BIG. My run being the double black diamonds, you need to take four lifts and a tram up to it. But man is it ever steep and winding lol.


Have you ever been to Asessippi? It's my favorite place in Manitoba to ride.

Yeah that was the plan but I have to save money for a Germany trip. However I might try sneaking my snowboard on the plane ;)

Anyone interested in keeping it smaller group PM me.  I did this last year and it was fun but it could be less money without another dude in my bed if we drive it.  That trip does include a bus ride... which cracked my galaxy note 2 screen in my pocket while I was trying to sleep in a bus seat... my fault...  One thing you get is the fun.  It was fun to meet all sorts of new people on that trip... some of those kids can't handle their booze though.  That poor Revelstoke Denny's.... lol

If anyone needs a board waxed before the season starts, or edges detuned (for rails/boxes, unfortunately I can't sharpen), I can assit with that, for cheaper than local shops too.

If you go to NBS apparel, they have these RED (brand, not color) wrist guards that work really well.
They don't restrict your movement and have some flex to them, but still protect you.
Thats what I use.
$40 IIRC

Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: Igor on November 27, 2013, 01:25 PM
you would have to plant your heel edge down to catch the heel edge...at which point you are no longer on your toe edge.
Title: ** Official Snowboarding Thread **
Post by: fruitloops on November 27, 2013, 01:32 PM
Yeah, my first year I pretty much just plowed the hill. So I was sick of that the second year and really worked toward carving. Once I somewhat had it I started doing it faster, and always forgot to think about carving when I was. My board went flat, and heel edge caught, thus overturning me, and smashing the back of my head against the hill. This is just when I was doing super wide carving. I.e. back almost facing bottom of the hill.

You're better off to just fix that yourself, as its just cosmetic, and 9 times out of 10, its going to peel back up after fixing it anyways.

Yea, fix it yourself. Thats pretty much just cosmetic.
Chances are its going to come back up after fixing it anyways.
I usually use marine Epoxy, or some sort of water proof epoxy.

Fill it in, and then clamp it down with pieces of wood on either side to even out the pressure. Wipe away any of the excess that oozes out.
Out of curiousity, is that a Technine?

Step ins are a thing of the past anyways. Traditional bindings perform much better.
Im pretty sure that shop alrady had their sale, but boarders has one I believe.
Also, look online, dogfunk and the house usually have good deals, black friday or not.

Yeah I know. That's why I need to upgrade. Used them for a couple years and it was fine. I don't do too much freestyle. I mostly just like to ride. Used them in Banff and they were fine. I'll definitely have to check out BA tomorrow.

You'll find you have a lot more control with a regular binding.
The fact that step ins have no high back, with a softer boot, gives you a lot less support than a regular binding

Yeh it is a Tech Nine Split T 151 Wide.

Bought it off Kijjij. I personally really enjoy snowboadring but I could justify the cost of a brand new setup due to the amount I actually go out. And when I do go its usually to spring hill as its close to transcona and there s#it gets stolen and just wrecked anyway.

Frostfire is open

Post by: jordisonjr on December 08, 2013, 11:13 AM
It's just a steel rail. It has legs but they're pretty short so we built it up with snow and iced it in place. Rail isn't iced or waxed on top.
Stony and frostfire are open. Spring opens next weekend, but I'm not sure about anywhere else

Ahh you have a Burton board?
Only way to make that work is use a Burton baseplate, unless you havea board with the EST channels.
If you have old bruton bindings, you could essentially buy any set of bindigns, and just swap out the baseplate from the old bindings to the new bindings, and it should work just as well.

It would probably save you a bunch of cash if you did want to buy new.

Just got back from a 5 day trip at Assessippi. First of all, not many runs are open (to anyone interested in going pre-Christmas) and only the one park is open. The park is all rails with one jump (nothing fantastic), just a heads up.

Also, first time out riding with my new GoPro Hero3 black, I was averaging about 15 mins of battery life before the thing died. Anybody have tips for recording while snowboarding, what do you guys do to get good shots/get a whole day of filming?

Hit up Asessippi Sunday.. Didn't get to go Saturday because we could barely see 50' in front of us on the highway.. By the time it cleared up it was around 2pm, so we would have gotten there at 4pm so not really worth it..Stayed at my buddies place and watched netflix all day then drank a ton of beer so we could test out the breathalyzer his mom got him for Christmas.

Had a chance to go to Lutsen, MN just prior to Christmas. Don't think we could have asked for better weather. The temperature never dropped below -10C, and it snowed for two out of the three days we were out there so we had some nice fresh powder to snowboard on. The only questionable aspect was the visibility, at the top of the mountain you couldn't see 5-10 feet in front of you, it was slightly sketchy at times, but none-the-less it was an awesome place to go.

Already itching to get back on the board!

Foreward by Snowboardermag is sick.
Capitas defenders of awesome( last year ) and defenders of awesome 2 (this year) are really good.
Litereally anything released by videograss is on point. "The last ones" (last year) and Mayday (this year) were really solid too.
Celtek put out a free video called "nothing to prove" this year, that was really good.
Nike's "Never not" from last season was really good and also released for free
Shredbots video was released online for free in parts or available on itunes and is really solid


There's a couple off the top of my head. Let me know if you need more.

i got to ride half a winter on this and half on the greats.

This board (typo) was so incredibly fun and poppy. Everyday was better than the next. I even managed to throw my first 720 on it. Despite it being a park oriented board.

The greats is a tad stiffer but you feel a bit more planted. Amazing carving ability. The Greats has their edition of Magnatraction called Ultimate Grip. The hill isn't the most friendly and powdery place for a snowboard. The serrated edge of the Ultimate Grip gave me unparalleled traction. Snow ice whatever. Such a fun ride for hucking off of the table too. Not as easy to butter as the typo but initiated turns way faster and easier. 

No matter what, Yes is an awesome board company. My go to ride. Good choice :)

Personally, I don't think I'd ride a Yes board.
My buddy rode one and within a month he completely exploded the edge out. Hit a rail, landed on the snow without any issue, and the edge just completely blew out. No impact damage or anything. And they wouldn't give him warranty either, even though there was no signs of impact.

Thats so weird. for any manufacturer really... ive shattered the edges on 2 K2 WWW's but none ripped out. only tore the edge out of some Atlantis board... my very fist deck back in 2007.

What type of riding do you do? where? how often? what are you looking for in a board? how tall are you? how much do you weigh?... i feel like Mike Woo

The Typo is a bit of a flexier board. It has a Camrock/Gullwing which is the best of all worlds, camber under foot/middle for initating carves and providing pop, and rockers tip and tail for buttery goodness and ease of take offs for kickers and rails. they have changed it a bit since it came out, I rode Yes when they originated 4? years ago... its now a directional twin which will offset you to the tail a bit; allowing you to ride switch but mostly with your dominant foot forward... my apologies on the park orientation earlier. hadnt realized they changed the direction of the board. its more of a mountain styled board but flexible

I used to work at Gords primarily in the ski and board section... sales and purchasing and have been instructing for 5 years now... and Colin has a ton of experience with boards too... @jordisonjr (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=14) let me know next time you guys are haveing a preseason sesh... i want to grab some shots

Post by: jordisonjr on November 02, 2015, 12:41 PM
Yea it was strange, i believe 8" of length blew out of the edge and the board was almost brand new. We coudln't believe that they denied warranty.

I think we will likely be setting up this weekend, Ill let you know what I know more!
Would possibly be in the evening, we've got flood lights and stuff as well.

Honestly, a park board is probably the best bet for any riding you'll do in manitoba. You won't reach the speeds that will require a stiffer longer board, you won't have to deal with heavy slush like in the mountains in spring time, you don't have to deal with rough conditions like in the mountains, and you definitely will NOT need a directional flex, or a directional shape to deal with powder.

Riding pow is pretty much the only time you need a set back stance and flex. I've rode both a 148 and 151 park board, with a flex rating of 3 (very soft) and zero camber (flat) in the mountains through pow, icy conditions, rough moguls, and at 90km/h, and I've never really had any problems.

I genuinely believe that directional shape a flex boards are abosulutely useless if you're not riding pow. Perhaps this is just me being un-educated, but I don't see the need for it, Espcially not in Manitoba. You may never plan to ride switch, but at least have a true twin (shape and flex) will allow you to have that option, and the same board feel riding each direction.

Park boards these days, for the most part, are designed to be able to be ridden all over the mountain (not hill), and be able to handle most conditions well, as manufacturers realize that not everyone is going to spend 500 bucks per board, and swap a board for varying conditions. And we all know snowboarders are lazy, who wants to waste time swapping bindings over from board to board anyways.

Keep in mind, this all my personal opinion from experience, and shouldn't be taken as an "end all be all" suggestion.

I picked up a 155cm Ride Highlife UL from Sampsons two years ago and I'll be quite honest and say that I kind of just let them decide on a board for me based on the criteria I told them.

After riding on it for a few years I have no issues carving on it, doing the odd jump etc. but I feel as though it's a little too big for me. Why? Sometimes I find the board a little bit difficult to "toss" around and maneuver on. I've been thinking of picking up a new board, something more "park" oriented and a little bit smaller, I'm not too sure where to look or if I should even be downsizing. Just wondering if you guys would be able to provide some insight - @jordisonjr (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=14), @Colby (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=2478), or really anyone else who feels they could offer some input.

If you have any questions for me that would make this easier for you to answer feel free to ask!

@Nirusan (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=3033) thanks for cleaning up.. I was actually thinking I should have talked in here.

Imo, if you want a new board.. Go to boarders and talk to Chris, the owner. @jordisonjr (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=14) will also say he's a solid dude. Plus, if you get your board from there after me they might give you a sweet deal.

Might just get a second, cheaper pair for work and snowboarding.

Probably don't need to say this but, just pick up some daily use contacts if you prefer wearing your glasses and don't plan on switching to contacts full time. Easy to pop in whenever you feel like snowboarding and they don't "break the bank". Being as blind as I am without glasses/contacts, I couldn't imagine snowboarding without them (or with my glasses for that matter)!

That's the plan. My glasses would always fog up under my goggles so i would snowboard without them. If there was no sun out and no shadows i wouldn't be able to tell a jump from a flat spot.

I'll be heading to the optometrist to get my eyes checked and order in some contacts one of these days.

I ride a 148, but i purchased it when I was about 5'5'" but even though I've grown I still like the smaller board.

Niru, you are 5'7"? 155 is a good carving size with occasional booter if so. I (5'7") ride a 152 K2 WWW and a 155 Nitro Sub Zero. the Sub zero is a bit bigger of a board for the park but great for jump for my height and power. without seeing you ride its hard to say wether we would neeed to change to stance, body position or board.

also a 161 Burton Jeremy Jones EST Sig. but thats a whole different monster for mountains

I'm 5'6" - 5'7"-ish last I checked. It honestly could be rider skill-level that's causing me to believe I need a smaller board. I could just very well need more board time.

The board feels incredibly solid at high speed, it's just sometimes quite difficult to "toss around".

alright so same as me. 155 is a solid board to be riding. when standing up to it it should be at about your lip. thats dead center of where you should be. the board is not a symmetrical board. the stance is offset to the rear ¾"... its very stiff and rocker nose with camber tail... thats why you feel so solid at high speeds. weight offset to the back, better traction, nice and stiff doesnt make it feel sloppy and the rocker nose is designed to float in pow. id say this is a board designed for all mountian, free riding, powder days... not necessarily spring ditch, no free riding, ice days.

you are right to feel that way about your board... it will be difficult to toss around because you are offset. by the sounds of it you are wanting a symmetrical twin tip that is Gullwing/Camrock or camber or rocker. 151-158 is an acceptable range. 151-154ish for park oriented; 154ish to 158 for carving and general fun.

hopefully that helps a bit

Definitely helps a lot! Unfortunately most of the days I got out to board last year were nothing but ice (even out west it was the same), very little snow. You saying that my board isn't exactly made for ice days makes a lot of sense.

I'll keep what you've suggested in mind, I'll definitely be coming back to this when its time to purchase as I wouldn't mind a second "fun board" that I could swap to depending on hill conditions and what I feel like doing that day. Thanks a lot!

Post by: jordisonjr on November 03, 2015, 08:11 AM
In terms of looking for boards, also check out 204 in Selirk, Chirs Mellen is the owner and he knows his stuff. Or if you talk to Jesse Walker as well, I'm not sure when he works, but I board with him and he definitely knows his stuff, and will put you on the right set up. He's not in it for the money, but the sport, so he won't put you on something just to make a couple more bucks. Feel free to tell him I recommended you (As Colin, he likely doens't know about TTI)

@Nirusan (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=3033) In terms of board size, 155 is pretty good for you, although you could downsize if you like. I've always rode a 148, and i'm about 5'7" 160-180 (over the passt couple years. Last year I went to a 151 and am currently riding that as well.

Keep in mind it may not be as stable in high speed, or the rough stuff. It will definitely be rideable in that, but may just take a bit more work. In my opinion, the size selection is more of a personal preferance than a requirement (to an extent, obvviously) as most boards are designed with a range of weights. For example, I jsut got my new board yesturday, and it has a sticker with all the specs for every size of that model. The weight/height requirements each size vcan handle has about a 40 lbs range, increasing slighty with each size increase (hopefully that makes sense).

So for myself weighing 180, i could ride anything from a 148, to a 158, in terms of size and height. So yea, the perfomance may slightly change depending on the size, but they will likely all work for you, and you won't be "maxing out" the board, so to say.

Also, to add to this, not a lot of boards will ride Ice well. And if they do ride Ice well, they won't really handle any other conditions well. Best bet here is to just learn to deal with poor conditions.

I personally don't see the need for anything but a true twin(flex, and shape) for riding in Manitoba. And if you're making a trip or two out to the mountains, it should do fine as well, you may just have to work a little harder if you get some snow during your trip. But keep in mind, this is all just personal preference, there's no real right or wrong (once again, to an extent.)


@Igor (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=17) not being able to see with no sun and no shadows (flat light) is pretty common, especially here. Lens selection is key in this lighting. Usually you want something that will brighten up the ground, but also show depth of the snow. A lot of companies have lenses that work in all conditions, which is typically what I use, and have a black lens, or something else as a back up that works for days with zero clouds.

Got this in the mail yesterday:

I have astigmatism so without my glasses I have pretty shizzy depth perception. Regardless of what lens I would wear I wouldn't be able to see what's in front of me clearly :P

Even though I don't wear glasses, I can't see how they would fit under googles, especially this style. You might be able to with a pair of "oversized" goggles but even with those I'd be surprised. I use electric es2's which are considered pretty large and I can't imagine trying to fit glasses under them. Pop some contacts in and you're golden though.

Went out for a quick preseason with a buddy today. Took a couple iPhone clips, pumped on my first blunt 270 off.






Front Blunt 270's are quite possibly my favorite rail trick there is. one of, as I have a couple haha. But can't see it in your video :(
Our set up has all melted, so we desperately need snow.

Haha yeah, the clip of me landing it is so dark right at the end. The sun didn't give me enough time to finally figure it out. Gotta work on my style, arms are all over the place haha  :-\  :unamused:

That trick is pretty hard to figure out, but once you've got it its one of the funnest.
I think it took me a full year to learn it back when i Fiiiirst started. Now its one of my go-to's

I was always thinking about spinning out too early. I finally figured out how to lock in the tail then use the flex of the board to help me get it around. Front boards are my go-to's for sure. We gotta get all the tti guys at spring hill for a day, if they ever end up opening this season haha

Yea i've ruined a ton of boards learning that trick, and spinning out too early haha. Front boards are mine as well.
I don't thnk many people here have an interest in coming out to spring hill, as not a lot of them hit park and complain its "too small". Which is understandable, if oyu're not there to ride rails.

I'm hoping it opens up before I scoot off to Europe, but with the temps fairly cold this week I have faith it'll open soon.

Was at spring on sunday. Mel was saying she wants to get the rope tow going as soon as possible. No dates set yet tho, i think. maybe @Electro (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=3413) can shed some light on the subject.

Well the tentative date was the 19th for the park, but we're not sure when now. Keep your eyes open for updates on our website.

What do you think @jordisonjr (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?action=profile;u=14) ?

Also landed fs tail 270 out's and bs board hardly 270's but sadly my phone died...
We lost quite a bit of height due to the large amounts of snow. Should be going out to spring hill now that it's open though.

Sounds good, how packed has the hill been? Also, most likely not me since I've been snowboarding for three years and only had a pass the in 2013 barely riding park at that time.

Went to holiday today. It was horrible. 1 lift open, only two runs had enough snow to cover the grass, and the lines were ridiculous. I think we timed 15-20 minutes of standing in line.

The only jibs they set up were a box and tube and the snow on that run was horrible.

Took off early. Will not go back until there is enough snow.

Can't your glasses fit under your goggles, or are you in the same boat as me?

Anti fog spray bro
Also, do you use a face mask/scarf/something that covers your chin and up?

i wouldn't be to sure that it's not the bandana. If you tuck your bandana under the lower goggle, the air flows up through the materials and causes fogging. I had this issue for years growing up. Now I go with an open face and never have an issue with ventilation. We have some goggles at Woodcock that are made by Smith. They have a ventilation fan built in. Kind of cool

Scott Stevens is like Rodney Mullen of snowboarding for me. I know very very few names in either sport, but I know to expect something cool and out of the box from those two every time. I'm sure I'm about to find out there are guys better than Scott, and I'm looking forward to it. I'll try to remember the Videograss film, that was an interesting trailer.

Honestly, there's not a lot of guys that ride like Scott. There's guys whole will do one footers, but nothing nearly as creative as Scott Stevens. He's pretty much one of a kind.

I know a lot of people think he's kinda of ridiculous and think what he does is cheesy but it's awesome.

There was a younger guy that's coming up doing some similar stuff. I believe his name is Cole Navin, and had a pretty creative Xgames real snow part last year.

You can't go wrong with the videograss releases. Pretty sure I have them all. If you watch one video this whole season, you won't be disappointed if it's the videograss release.

During this time of transition, our top priority will be extending snowmaking through the winter. We will be adding new snow machines, and extensions to our pumping stations.

We realize the inconveniences this brings to all of our friends and families whom have chosen Frost Fire as their Ski and Snowboard destination. We look forward to seeing you again during our 2017/2018 season.

To that end, for the 2016/2017 ski season, we will have only the tubing area open, accessible using Frost Fire's Magic Carpet. Our goal is to have both the tubing area and the Magic Carpet ready by mid-December.

Well ****.

Holiday sucks balls, and Asessippi is too far for day trips. :'(
