Snowboarding

crooklyngrrl's Bio

i started skiing when i was about 5 years old, back in 1984. i gave the skis up to start riding in 1996 on a burton custom freestyle joint, back when there was no such thing as men's/women's boards. it was simply a snowboard.
i've turned that board into a shelf, mounted on my living room wall, storing art books now.

on december 23rd, my riding season was cut short. at hunter mtn, ny (of all places), i didn't quite land a jump and somehow managed my way down the mountain.
after much deliberation and excruciating pain, i went to the hospital the following afternoon.
i spent xmas eve in the Emergency Room with a broken talus and avulsion. now, 16-1/2 weeks later, i'm just starting to run again.

and counting down to next season!!

in the off season, i'm a professional scuba diver.

holla.

i have last year's model in a 144 which is my third board. it rides really smoothly and really is light. my last board was a K2 luna 138 and this weighs just the same, using the same bindings. it made switching to a longer board a lot easier. before i knew it, i was flying past all the guys i ride with. they were as impressed with the board as i was!

because of the weather, i haven't used this bag for snowboarding yet, but i like the bag a lot already!
i also have the tan (twill) color bag.
my first reaction when i got the bag was surprise to the color.
the color of the small burton logo on the top front and the plastic caps on the zipper pulls is more of a fuschia.
there are also two small rubber flaps (one on the left arm strap and one on the right side of the upper board strap) that are the same brown color and say 'burton' in light pink. the "18L" size designation is also pink.
these should be somewhat visible in the photo, but for some reason, they're not.

there is also a small hole for your earphones to poke through if your iPod is inside the bag's big compartment... but there's no inner pouch to place an iPod.

i'm not really a fan of pink nor its many shades, but the color aside, the bag is pretty cool and can hold quite a big.
