Kyle's Bio


Hi my name is Kyle Brady and I’m a snowboarder. I have been struggling with this addiction since before I could drive. I have moved, quit jobs, and started a terrain park as well as a contest series in the name of snowboarding. Basically, my whole life has revolved around snowboarding since I could drive. After getting sick and tired of flat land activities and compost pile ski hills in Michigan, I relocated to Steamboat. I was in search of that classic western experience and POWDER! Well, I found it. Since then I have relocated to the beautiful Wasatch Front. I found a home at Snowbird and Backcountry.com and have decided this is the life for me. Living in Utah for over 9 years has opened so many doors to other activities. I have expanded snowboarding into the backcountry and yes I do split my own boards. I put over 100 day on my splitboard alone this season. I have fallen in love with climbing and canyoneering here in recent years. That and backpacking pretty much control the summer and keep me occupied till the flakes start falling.

If you ever need any help with any of our products here is how you can contact me

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have this helmet after various recommendations from people who took a header wearing it. You don't find a better vouch then that. I can't really add anything to the conversation but I can say, the only annoying thing is the open whole in the upper forehead area. I literally had a bee get stuck in there and sting me on Holy Roller at Dear valley. Other than the Bee Hole, it's amazing.

If you like comfort and heal hold, look no further. They are probably not going to last 100 days like some other boots but these won't hurt for the first 15. It all comes down to preference. The heal hold is absurd and the rope boa feels like lacing or speedlace much more than the cable.

UPDATE

I bought these march 7th and have ridden them a max 10 days. A handful of days touring, and a few days on the resort. There has been a little boot packing in there. They look pretty beat already for a few days. There are large creases on the sides already from no articulated cuff, the heal of the sole is pealing, some stitching has started to fail and you can see binding wear already. I assumed this would happen with out of the box comfort but not this fast. Save your money and buy something else.


Pics will be added soon.

They claim these are 11in inseam but I'm a tad suspicious. They are quite "dad" looking and you better put sunscreen on above the knees if sitting outside. I'm a 31 waist. The 30 was snug the 32 was a tad loose. I'd go with the 30 if they were a tad longer.

I love these. The waist is so comfortable. Sure it's elastic, but I'm 38 and don't give AF. There is so much room for activities because of it. I'm a 31. Went with the 30 and they are perfect.

This board is really fun. That being said, if you love your tail, this might not be for you. If you want a surfer but want a tail there are other boards. If you want to surf deep days and still be able to charge this thing is rad. Landings are bolts only. Literally, there is no tail. I stress this because it's the only thing that I can find to complain about. Extremely fun ride.

I demoed the 158 split knowing that it was too big but hoping it would work. Wow, it was huge. JJ is right when he says to size down. I have since ordered the 54 but have not rode it yet. In my opinion, you do not want to size up unless you're trying to recreate the ride of a long surfboard.

170lbs before the pack.
