Thoughts: It’s been a long year

Written by JT on . Posted in Thoughts

Hey everyone, that is, if anyone still visits heh. I’ve neglected posting as I’ve been working on my new company, and other ventures, but I’m still out riding quite a bit. I grabbed the new NeverSummer Twenty Five, which I’ll be posting some thoughts on shortly. I’m still riding mostly 686 outerwear, but looking to expand beyond them to some other brands, which may even include some Burton outerwear. I’m curious to also check out Burton’s new “step in” bindings I’ve been seeing articles about, as that may be interesting, or a complete disaster heh. The snow is finally starting to show promise here in Colorado, although we’ve had some good early season POW days, the base is still a bit low for what it should be. It’s definitely “old stick” time with me rocking the 09 NS Legacy during this time of the season as my go to board. How’s the snow elsewhere for you?

Get out there and make some turns. I’ll blog more as I can, especially reviews.

Summer is Upon Us.. or is it?

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.

2016 and Forward

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.

Cheers!
