Sebastian Hansen's Bio

From Norway, born in 82, started skiing at age 3.

First tried boarding at about 13 after a short flirt with telemark. Switched back to skis at 21 after nearly breaking my back on a trick gone wrong. Switched back to board winter 05 to cover as instructor for a friend. Never switching again!

Snowboard is a huge part of my life. It gives me inspirations for work, lifts me when I'm down and relaxes me when I worry.

I love to ride and love those who do as well.

The pros:It's super light weight. Easy to tune. The toe cap is great (just remember to tune it to fit your boot, I put mine at the inner setting to have it wrap snuggly). The flex is super delicious. You can tweak them forever.The cons:The sizing is weird. I have a 9.5 ThirtyTwo Ultralight which should fit in the M/L. When setting up the binding it fit perfectly, but when strapping in I felt the binding pressing up against the sides of my foot. I also had to pull the strap to it inner most setting AND use the rachet to there were no more teeth on the strap. Maybe I just like to ride my bindings thight, or maybe Gigi (the designer) has enormous arches on his foot. I switched to the L/XL and adjusted it to fit my boot. The ankle strap still has some issues.In short:Awesome flexible. Add +1 to your US size when ordering binding. Ankle strap fits best on bulkier boots.

I've had three of this thing. Bought one then got it replaced TWICE after it snapped.

The bits works great by them self but when you use the plastic handle it won't hold the strain and snaps right off... And about you not noticing it in your pocket; try falling on this thing. I poked holes straight through my pants and into my thigh.

Save yourself the hassle and get a descent tool stead. I recommend the compact T-handle drives from Dakine or Bluebird.

It's a basic latch lock. A bit bulky but no more weight than other types (45 grams). I prefer the flat more square models; they have a lower profile that tucks away better in my pocket.

The latch is 29" (74cm) long and the code is hassle free to program; just flip a metal switch and dial up your dogs birthday then flip it back.

Bottom line: Does what it's supposed to but I prefer other models.

The A-frame is durable, easy to use, great looking and with superior optics.

I got my first pair back in 98 or so and I still rock them on occasion. I got a couple of more now and they all have hold op amazingly well. The rubber band is still tight and the lenses have withstand travel to the alps, the norther pars of Norway, countless after skis and more.

The only real downside with the A-frame is it's constraints on the peripheral vision. The frame is a bit narrow and has a lot of bulk so when skiing switch or looking over your shoulder you might have problems. When snowboarding it's however never caused mentionable problems for me.

Bottom line: Durable with superior optics. Limits your peripheral vision.

I got this cap in all black. The textile is hard to the touch and has a nice coarse texture that feels expensive and exclusive. The fit is quite tight. I got the 7 1/2 and it's MUCH tighter than my other hats. From Dragon or DC I'd size up.

Bottom line: Classy and exclusive. I'd have no problem wearing this cap to the Opera.

New lenses essentially makes an old pair of beaten up goggles into fresh new ones. At 1/5 the price of the full thing you might just consider a $20 fix up.

I order mine right from a dealer so it was about time Dogfunk got them to. Only thing missing now are the pink and clear ones, they are epic for night riding.

Bottom line: Adapt to the light. Spares save a lot of hassle and money.

This thing is huge! It easily holds my outwear, boots, board and bindings.

I was afraid it wold be to long for my car so I ordered the 156 for my 157 board (a dealer told me the 156 would fit a 159 board hassle free). Not a clever choice. The description is pretty true to size so the 156 only barely fits a 157 board. If you have a 156+ board I'd go for the 166 one, the middle part of the bag is flexible so the added length won't be a problem.

There is much tech going on with this bag, maybe to much. I can't figure out what pocket goes where and how to orgenize it all. I think the thing carries 2 decks and 1 full setup with scratch padding thing in between it all. I however just ended cramming it all in there.

The attachable bags work ok but wont snap into place if you have a wide stance on your board.

The skate wheels are awesome and the whole thing rolls really well. Construction is durable and the whole thing is covered in waterproof stuff so you wont soak up your car.

Bottom line: Sweet bag with much room. Can seam a little confusing with all the pockets and whatnot. True to size, bigger is better.

It's a fanny pack for your leg. Works great except the buckle is a little hassley.

I store my board lock thing and a extra lens in case I forget my night goggles or break the ones I wear.

You never know what might happen but I'm pretty sure you will be better prepared with an Airblaster leg bag. (-1 star for the shady buckle.)
