Josh 's Bio

I am a huge gear head on the issues concerning snowboarding, backpacking, day hiking, camping and river/sea kayaking.

"wear your helmet now so you dont have to wear it later"

I aspire to hike through hike the At, Wrestle a Black Bear, ride a deer, and hike the Tetons in cowboy boots.

I have the blue/purple monkey man. i used it as a mid layer while riding at park city and the canyons. also use it many times while backpacking on the AT and on the MST in western NC. this is so light and warm it is always the first thing i put in my pack no matter what time of year i decide to hit the trail. O and just so you know you might just find random girls coming up to pet your monkey phur.

Nothing. It's an all mountain board, so it'll handle park just fine. However, there are boards made exclusively for park riding, so check those out if that's where you spend all your time.if you are looking for an all mountain board but rides better in the park then the turbo dream then go with the jib pan. It was two more torsion forks and i believe it has harsh mellow aswell. same price but better ride in the park. More snap on hard pack turns and more pop then the turbo dream.

if you are looking for an eco friendly board go with the Arbor wasteland or any arbor for that matter. If you are looking for one of the lightest boards out there with the smoothest ride and new add-ons like harsh mellow then the zero is your board. Compare it to other light weight boards (burton vapor) and you will see that this is the best board for the buck. Hook it up with the new Auto bindings and you have a fully harsh mellowed out board. just make sure that you but the 09 auto bindings because there was a recall on last years.

(whew that was a good one) I have had this tent for about six months I have taken it on three extended backpacking trips two down in Western NC on the MST and another one on the MD AT. I really enjoy this tent I love the two doors and have never had a problem with water leaking in. My two complaints are this. It is very hot during the summer. My last trip we were using 20 degree bags and it was about 40 outside. we slept the whole night with the fly open just to keep from burning up. The second problem is the weight. I am used to carrying around 40lbs so its not a big problem for me but lighter would defiantly be better. I do like the tent and im glad that i looked at SAC when i did.

Yuppers cjhaan. your boot will be to large for this board, you will need a wide board specifically for a boot size 12 .... Ya DiggggDude you should be fine i set up a turbo dream today with some xl formulas and burton Mottos is a 12 if the angles are at 15 with toes pointing away from each other you should be fine. I wear a twelve and have never had to ride a wide board.
