One might conclude we’re moving into summer here, or should be here, in Colorado. It’s still snowing up in them there hills, and A-Basin is still open for making turns. Sure it may be late season snow, but snow, is snow eh? I’ve been swamped with a new job, so haven’t updated the site in a bit, but am making plans for posting more reviews, thoughts, and hopefully some video clips. Stay tuned, I haven’t forgot about the site, it’s just been in a little hiatus while I changed jobs etc. New thoughts on boots coming up, binders, boards, and the progression of board design.
Wow, it’s been quite a bit since I’ve updated the site. My apologies on that, works been crazy. I wanted to post today, as I’ve been up riding quite a bit, and again, as a bigger guy, figured my opinions, or thoughts may help some of those other riders out there. One thing that’s annoyed me lately is finding a helmet that fits properly again. Pro-Tec was sold, and the Vigilante is no longer made, nor do they show any “snow” helmets on the website anymore. I’ll look into that as the season progresses.
Today I ventured up to A-Basin with a good friend Scott, who was planks today. I took up a 169 Skunk Ape C2 BTX board, and I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying this board right now. It’s really railing into the turns, and carving like a dream. I am still riding Flow NX2-RS bindings for the most part, but venture out to try the new offerings from Rome, and Union as well. I’ll work on posting more to the site this season, including the upcoming Never Summer line-up, changes etc. Get out there, and make some turns, the conditions here in Colorado are pretty solid.
Change is inevitable, especially in our industry. I was, and still am a big fan of the Never Summer Titan. I loved the Raptor X, and was excited to get my hands on the replacement of this fine lineage.. the Chairman. Vince at Never Summer was gracious enough to let me borrow a board for some riding. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the board, riding with Flow NX2-GT bindings, and Union Chargers, and honestly, well let’s just jump into it.
