Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Despite my boss's list of skis to demo, about 7 per each demo day, I picked up this one (which wasn't on his list) and spent most of the day on it ripping it up all over! It's playful, poppy, responsive, and light. A nice departure from the super-fats that are so popular now, the 1.0 reminds the skier how much fun early season or mediocre on-piste snow can be with the right tool. Thovex has built a ski that oozes creative style and original lines from quick 360s off a cat track to mogul rippin to jib-stylz. Really solid ski for every non-powder day.
ps, remember when super-fats didn't exist? This ski is still fun in the deeps with the right skier technique.

Exactly what a goggle should be. Fog resistant, bomber, sturdy, good seal b/t frame and lense, good foam b/t frame & face, great shape, visibility is just fine (EG2s & I/Os offer a bunch of periphery that I don't find anymore useful than the vision offered here). I've skied the Bern Baker helmet for a few years now and these gogs fit PERFECTLY under its rim, you'd think that Bern had designed the helmet to work best with A-Frames. I can't say enough about this frame. Deciding which lens to buy should be your hardest decision.

is there a number to tell me how much floatation each pfd has? I'm new to kayaking, bought a whole set up minus a PFD. That in mind, I want one on the cheaper side and relatively more floaty than other more advanced jackets. I'll definitely be taking a few swims with my first PFD and I want to make sure it will keep me afloat through the sh*t. Thanks!

I demo'd this ski two days in a row at the end of last season in Steamboat CO. They might look like a joke but they totally rip!! the ski really makes you feel like you're surfing. its a feeling unlike any other i've had skiing. Their turning is quick and responsive, my first few runs through trees with these guys was tricky b/c when i told the ski to turn, it turned too much and took me off my like. It didn't take me long to adjust for it and soon enough i was rippin through trees faster than i ever had before! Nutshell: uber responsive, float-ability, chops through crud, and taks down groomers.
I just bought a pair.
