Snowboarding

jackiechan's Bio

I think skateboarding is the basis of all board sports - I started when I was 10. I've seen others that skipped that stage and just went straight into other board sports and most of them suck with no style.

I'm already in my 40s now (yes, kids, you can still rip even then) but still love surfing and snowboarding. I've been surfing for almost 30 years, so...you get the picture.

Just started snowboarding a couple of years ago, so I've only mastered basic tricks like front and backside 180 airs. I've only made about four 360 airs so far - they just take a lot more of a ramp and speed than I'm usually comfortable with...unless it's earlier in the day and I'm really feeling it.

Fortunately, I live only 2 hours from both the ocean and the mountains, but I don't like driving, so that makes me the ultimate "weekend warrior".

This is the most handsome fleece jacket I've ever see/worn. It has a great cut and styling that will simply make any guy look good. Even with Polartec 300, it's not the warmest jacket because it breaths so well - this jacket does come with some wind protection on the chest, but, if it's cold out, you'll probably need a wind breaker layer, too. In warmer winter weather, the underarm zippers are great. I also use this for spring skiing under a windbreaker that also has pit zips....good stuff.

nice park bindings. They have plenty of flex, more adjustability than most bindings, the best ankle padding I've ever had, good toe strap system, metal ratchets and sick looks at a relatively low price. Unfortunately, the plastic ladders feel a bit thin/brittle, the disk covers are screw down instead of snap on and you have to completely unhook the toe strap to get your foot out (on Salomon bindings, you loosen but they stay hooked and just fall out of the way). Rome acknowledged my warranty card by sending me a big die-cut logo sticker...sweet.

Lots of cool features, decent materials and well stitched, but the the form on these things is too universal. The shell is about as form fitting as an oven mitt and the pipe glove/liner is snug in the fingers but all balloony in the palm and wrist. I disagree with the other reviewer - I would order these particular gloves larger than usual. Dakine's sizing chart is inaccurate - it told me Large, then I had to reorder XL which fit better. Maybe their next model up (Gore -Tex) is a better fit.
