What's the fabric?
Well, Lets see. Hmmm, I have been riding for 15 years and have toured the west coast. While in Tahoe I prefer to ride the Bowl or Rose, Mt. Hood is always a good time but at the moment Bear Mountain is the resort I call home. I prefer steeps and tree's but live in So Cal, so I do ride park as well. I am looking to make Bachelor my home with-in the next 3 years. I am currently riding a 156 Rome Anthem with P1's and Ion boots but I have ridden everything from Shove-It to Burton and will more than likely go to Lib for next season. I prefer Analog outer-ware at the moment but have rocked everything from 686 to Special Blend and as long as it is well made and can keep the elements out I am ok with it. I don't discriminate against anyone on the hill as long as you show a little etiquette. Unfortunately not a lot of people understand what that is (Boarders & Skiers alike).

Ok, for those of you young guns out there this is the watch that you would have worn back in the day. I have had a few in my life time but this was a present for my 7 year old son. He absolutely loves it and these things will take a beating which is why I got it for him. These are great watches and i'm sure it will last. Thinking about getting one for myself here pretty soon.
So I got these boots after reading the reviews and they got pretty high marks! I am not really sure what the people who wrote those reviews were wearing previously but these are not the boots for someone who has riding more than 2 seasons. I have been riding for 14 years and I thought I could get away with ridding a cheap pair of boots after riding Ions for the last 3 seasons. I was wrong! If you are just starting out these are great boots, If your have been riding awhile I would not settle for anything less than the Ruler.
I was a firm believer in Burton but have moved over to Rome, I love this board. I am a all mountain rider so I went for the Anthem being a high end directional board. This board holds edges with ease and transitions rail to rail with no problem. Super fun all mountain ride. The majority of my friends ride park so I spend a lot of time there as well, This is a super poppy, very stable board. Love it!
