I just got a Burton Barracuda 153 and some Burton Prophecy Re*Flex Bindings..
Rossignol Scope 153 with 2012 Union Force bindings. It's semi-directional and slightly on the stiffer side and should be great for carving and groomers. Can't wait to put it to use!
hooked up by forum this season, thanks to the local forum rep.
left is my jump board [all mountain] forum destroyer 154 double dog [hybrid camber] with Forum shaka bindings
right is my park and jib board, forum young blood chilli dog [reverse camber] with forum faction bindings [broke 3 buckles so far]
still have my back up decks in my storage.
These are the boots that I got to ride with this year. Super comfy while not being too stiff.
i fractured my pelvis [1 fracture on the right, 2 fractures on the left] 5 weeks ago. The most painful experience I could ever live through.
don't know how i did, but when i crashed, i wound up in a creek lying on rocks.
got a ride to the lodge on a sled, and thought it was nothing major, but couldn't walk due to the pain.
after i got wheeled to my car, i took a chance to see how painful it was to depress the clutch pedal, since the gf can't drive standard, and it wasn't bad.
Drove 30 minutes through traffic to my house to get my cane, and yes i have one for the times throughout the year that my lower back goes out.
Got the cane, and the gf wanted me to come to her house so that she can take care of me.
Parked my car in the underground and couldn't move.....so the emergency room it was...and when i got there......I was bed ridden for 3 days.
CT scan showed that my pelvis shifted to the right, and the fractures weren't as severe to need pins and surgery.
3 weeks later, i'm mobile and walking and took a shot at sliding some snow, with success!
Now I'm amped for the rest of the season, but I have to keep the board on the ground for most of it....
I also had to cancel my trip extension [off of a work summit] to bear mountain in california because of the fact that I'm not 100% recovered.
nothing new this season yet... so for early stuff:
and for when the real snow gets here a set of Volkl Katanas I picked up last winter
about to board a plane for the first trip out west for the season with stocklis in the bag for this time around... already questioning not having brought the katanas
