I'm going to try to remember to post in this thread again. Life is so busy now a days I am never on the nation anymore.


Anyways, picking my pass up to the local hill next weekend for opening day. Gear on the radar this year is just some new Union Forces, my 09's broke last year, and the acid green color this year would look bomb on my 'scope.

Um, yes. Learn the English language.

Let's get this thread rolling! The local slopes are opening next weekend. I'm getting excited.

Or, in the words of Mr. Familiar, I was excited.

Welcome to the snowboard thread meathead. This is English 101 with everyones favourite poster, me.

"It will probably be flooded with people, but I decided to go anyways as there is..."

See, you can't have future and past tense. "It WAS flooded with people, but I decided to go anyways..." works, its all past tense. Conversely, you could have made it all future tense, "it will be flooded with people, but I will go anyways as there is..."

Thanks for reading, tune in next time to find out why "grinding" doesn't happen in snowboarding.

I hadn't gone up to the mountain yet, but I still knew that since it was opening day, it was going to be flooded with people. And it was.
Even though I knew it was going to be flooded with people, I still made the decision to go anyways. And I did.

I seriously don't see how you can't put that together. It's like you're asking for me to spell or write the word/letter "I" for you.

Any of you guys wear helmets? I've been noticing that a lot of the Bern helmets were on sale, and that is basically the only thing my mom would like to get me for Christmas. Not sure if I want one though. I'm trying to talk her into a board bag.

I don't wear a helmet when I ride but my mom always says "your gonna break your neck one day!" You can break your neck even when wearing a helmet. they certainly do help against concussions though. If I were top wear a helmet it would be a bern one.. they seem pretty nice.

where did you see them on sale.

I've been riding since 1988, and just started using a helmet last season. They are so light and well built now that i forgot I had it on.

They're on sale at dogfunk right now.

I went shopping with her today and we picked up a giro helmet. I'm not sure if I should have gotten a bigger one so I could wear a beanie under it. The one I got I definitely cannot get a beanie in there.

I think I will be more courageous with a helmet just since it makes me feel like it is an extra added layer of protection. It was also nice because they had some skull candy headphones that fit right inside the ear pieces.

helmets are a good idea however they don't prevent concussions. they do prevent much worse head injuries though. more and more parks are making them mandatory and its silly not to wear one.

I still think that people should be given the choice to wear one though..

Sometimes people need things to be mandatory. See: seatbelts.

.

saw someone being recovered who had gone headfirst into a tree in some backcountry hit his head and died before being able to escape the tree well. a helmet would have saved his life.

have worn a helmet every single day ive ridden since i was young and its saved me from trouble lots of times, from breaking it on a rail to going headfirst into a stump after screwing up a turn in some backcountry
