Myles Winn's Bio

I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and in my teen years I worked for Shred Shop one of the largest skate/snowboard shops in the midwest. After high school I moved to Mammoth Lakes California for my passion of snowboarding and worked at Wave Rave snowboard shop. After a few seasons living in Mammoth I moved back to Chicago where I once again became intolerant of city living and decided to make the pilgrimage to Salt Lake City, again to pursue my passion in snowboarding.

I like to think of myself of a bit of an audiophile and sound snob. So when I saw the price tag at $40 for a pair of entry level earbuds I was ready to look the other way. However, for $40 I definitely think you get your monies worth. These headphones are very bass heavy and really provide a nice quality of sound for a properly mastered track without having to play with the EQ on whatever device you're playing with. However for tracks that don't require a lot of bass, it can be a little overwhelming and bring out the mids too much. Either way, these are not studio monitors and if I were looking to spend $40 on earbuds I would pick these over anything else in the same price range. on a side note, they actually fit really nice being that the drivers are stashed in a cylinder like housing and not something aesthetically pleasing but oddly shaped.

The same as every other pack only better

This 20L day pack is more than enough for your average side country mission and just enough for any local backcountry touring. With space left over for lunch and a change of clothes after the essentials (probe and shovel). This pack allows me to strap my board to it horizontally for rides up the canyon on the motorsickle to get that spring corn and then off to hike Brighton Basin all in the same day. This is my 3rd Dakine pack and I doubt I'll look elsewhere as long as Dakine keeps doing their thing.

Depending on how wide of a stance you rock and how aggressive your binding angles are, you'd probably be at risk for toe and heel drag. Tadashi Fuse is a smaller guy and this board is built for him so you've gotta take that into account. The 157 wide would probably be a better bet depending on how tall you are. Not to mention a little more length and waist width in a camber board is going to float better in the pow, if that's what you're going for.

Yes the large will will fit your Ion size 11. You'll have to size your straps out a bit but it will be better than putting you in the XL and having that much larger of a base plate. Depending on which year Ion you have this could be a perfect fit. Within the last 2-3 seasons the Ion has had a footprint reduction so if you wear an 11 you're footprint is more like a 10. Hope that helps.

I camped out 42/50 days in the field this summer in this tent and have nothing but great things to say about it! Using 4 stakes for the tent/footprint and 4 stakes for the rain fly/vestibule the tent had no problem holding up through 20-40+ mph gusts and plenty of rain, never letting any moisture inside the tent. I had to setup and breakdown the tent daily and got to the point where I could do it in under 10 minutes by myself.

As far as size goes, it's sold as two man tent however I used it for myself. I would say it would comfortably fit a couple. I'm not sure I'd want be in there with a friend. For two full size guys and gear I'd probably go with the 3P.

I haven't had the opportunity to backpack with it yet but at just under 5 lbs trail weight it might be a little heavy for one person with the rest of your gear. Split between two people I don't see it being a concern.

The footprint and gear loft is a really nice addition too. The foot print reduces the wear on the bottom of the tent as well as putting a little bit more layer between you and the earth. And while the gear loft looks small at first, I found it very useful and was putting things in it like my headlamp for an overhead light, cell phone, and airing out clothes.

The vestibule is just big enough for a couple pair of boots or maybe a smaller pack. I don't think it would comfortably cover multiple 50+ liter bags. But if you use the tent as a one person it's more than enough.

I couldn't be happier with this purchase and look forward to another 40+ days in it.

First lets take a look at your riding level. If you're confident you're a good rider in most terrain you probably won't notice much difference between the 56 and 59. The 59 is going to be more stable at faster speeds but since the board is fairly soft on Burton's scale and reverse camber you probably won't notice the difference between the two. You'd more so look at the 59 if you were buying the board to ride all over the mountain and have a little more of a well rounded board shape to progress your ability.

If this is going to be your primary park/urban board I'd go with the 56. The shorter length is going to give you less swing weight for rotations and a couple CM shorter on the nose and tail to make it just that much lighter and more agile on those box/rail features.

Just when you thought your computer was good enough. Then you bought a GoPro Hero 3 Black. Overall the camera is awesome. Amazing build quality with great clarity, features and accessories in an easy to use sleek package. However, when I say great clarity. That's when you can get playback. In short, if you don't have a minimum of a 2.5ghz quadcore processor with 8gb of ram and a decent video card, good luck getting playback on anything over 1080@60fps. I have a 1.5ghz quadcore with 8gb of ram and 1gb video card and can get good playback at 1080@fps. 1440@48fps is kinda choppy and I've had no luck with 2.7k or 4k. I do really enjoy the ease of making time lapse with this camera. Low light is very impressive too.

I picked up these coming from a pair of two year old Burton Prophecies. Spec wise they're almost an identical binding for about $40 less. What I'm absolutely in love with on these bindings is the ankle strap. By far the most comfortable strap I've felt in years. The only reason I'm not giving this binding 5 stars is the re:flex 4 hole disc limits your adjustments on the binding to toe and heel only. If you want to make adjustments in your stance width you're limited to the boards inserts.

I've been riding Libs for about 10 years now and this is my 4th T.Rice pro(third 157). There's something about the size and and construction of this board that connects to me. I'm not anywhere near the rider Travis is, but I'm about the same size as him and I feel like this board is built for the guy with a little bigger of a foot (10.5-11.5) and in the 180-200 lbs range. This board absolutely slays any terrain you put in front of it and is one of those things were the board will definitely out ride the rider.

This is my second pair of Ions and again I question why I didn't pony up for them the last two seasons. Super comfortable boot with just enough flex to be playful but still incredibly supportive. My only gripe is I wear a 12 in street shoes. With Burton boots I can squeeze into an 11. This year somehow I managed to get my foot into a 10.5 which I'm very happy with. But unfortunately after a few days of hard riding I feel the boots have already packed out and maybe I could have squeezed my foot into a 10 to get a better fit and more life out of the boot. That's the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars.

I bought this board as a gift for my Girlfriend and she's in love with it. She rides a B-Pro 155 in the pow and this for groomers and night riding. The reduced magna-traction doesn't affect it's edge hold on ice and the EC2-BTX still has great pop for being a hybrid camber profile.
