  1. Past hour
  2. Ha! Thanks for the tip. Joined. I'm no monster, but I'm improving. I'm not one for rides longer than an hour.
  3. Today
  4. Bike commuting towing my dog in a trailer turned out to be great prep for snowboarding season. Now that commuting isn't a thing, I need to find something else.
  5. I don't do much training outside of being active. Was getting tattooed the other day on my thigh by my good friend and he commented on how ripped the muscle was... 2-3000k squats a day seem to have had a lasting effect on my legs
  6. let's be honest, given the average age of a Forum-member here... the best thing the average poster here can do to get in better shape for this sport is to attain a prescription for TRT. Half joking.
  7. Nice Jack, glad to see you're joining the road biking masochists Did you know there's a Strava group called "Alpine Snowboarders on Bikes"? Through that group, I've learned there are some carvers that are absolute monsters on bikes -- must be all that quad development from alpine. Hope to see you there soon.
  8. Yesterday
  9. 185 Kessler GS (Red top sheet) + Apex plate + Bomber Trench Digger 3 Bindings Hey Guys! I am selling my 185 Kessler (red top sheet) with an Apex plate (UPM Mount) and Bomber TD3 bindings. This setup holds an edge through anything - I mean literally anything. This setup is definitely more on the aggressive side. I had this Kessler custom made for my height and weight. I am 5' 11" and weigh around 170 lbs. Overall, I've taken pretty good care of the board. There are no deep base scratches; however, I would recommend a base grind to get it
  10. Brenden:;;; Just thinking, that DONEK isn’t the easiest board to learn on. I wonder what flex u had. That could make a difference. And being new to a boar of that width. Everything factors in. I had a DONEK INCLINE, it was a challenge for me to learn how to ride it. 157 28 waist 8.5 sc. but when I got it that mother railed unbelievable. DONT BEAT YOURSELF UP ITS ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN.
  11. Yosemite, Sequoia and the National forests here (Including INYO NF which is the entire Eastern Sierra) are still closed. Early in fires I thought I'd wait until the smoke got better to get out...bad idea. I've been waiting for weeks to get out climbing. A Sierra backpack was a great way to get away from social distancing and stuff. Now that's not an option.
  12. BRENDEN MY MAN. IF U DONT LIKE RIDING SWITCH THATS COOL. LEARNING TO RIDE SWITCH IS NOT EASY. I STARTED LAST YEAR AT 71. I LIKE TO CARVE ALSO, WHAT I DID IS SWITCH BACK AND FORTH FROM FULL ON CARVING DAY TO PRACTICE SWITCH DAY. I GOT TO WHERE I WAS FELLING NOT TO BAD. STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BUT THE PROGRESS IS THERE. I COME FROM A SURFING BACK GROUND OF 40 PLUS YEARS. LAST YEAR I GOT A ONE WHEEL, I WAS HAVING BOARDING WITHDRAWS LOL. THE ONEWHEEL IS A TRIP, WHEN I STARTED TO TRY AND RIDE SWITCH ON IT, I COULD NOT BARLEY STAND ON IT. PRACTICE PRACTICE,NOW I CAN RIDE IT JUST AS GOOD AS REGUL
  13. Haven’t had a road bike since high school. Great to be back! Got this carbon fiber sculpture in May (got real pedals and shoes afterwards). I find the Strava app to be pretty motivating. Fun to compete against yourself and friends. Mostly yourself.
  14. NICE VID BRO. I HAD AN INCLINE SO I DO KNOW THAT BOARD HOLDS A CARVE. LOOKAT GETTING ANOTHER DONEK JUST NOT SURE WHICH ONE I WANT THIS TIME. GOOD JOB LOOKING GOOD. MODO FROM COLORADO
  15. If you are on the Wait List for the 2021 MCC be sure to check your inbox or junk email folder. If you are on the Wait List but did not get an email, message me. Cheers, David
  16. A ring around the sun at sunset. This picture was from Tuesday Sept. 15th in Michigan at about the same latitude as Rawlings, Wyoming.
  17. By “politics” I presume you mean American politics. I get more than enough of that from every other angle in my life. No thanks. Now if you want to talk about whether we should have an election if Freeland’s budget is as off the rails as we’re all expecting, I’m down with that...
  18. It seems like you are asking for civility and agreements from a social media platform... One that flames whenever someone asks about bail vs step-in. You crazy.
  19. Here’s are a few photos from a few weeks ago outside my place in downtown san francisco. These were taken at noon. Climate change seems well on its way to making this a less habitable planet.
  20. @charliechocolate might have few sl Kesslers.
  21. During the summer I live in a 100 year old mountain lodge in the Medicine Bow National Forest, now threatened by the Mullen Fire. Forest has been closed and we've been under pre-evacuation order for the last several days. The fire has spread rapidly in extremely rugged terrain, with dense vegetation and beetle-killed deadfall. Thursday/Friday wind event will likely determine whether topography/weather will bring the fire here or to the south.
  22. Yes, sb hb finally calmed down, my supposed agenda to convert all to sb, or that they were somehow better was seen for what it was...a group who could not handle that somebody Carved in sb on their hb site...I remember this run with Dustin and Ink at MCC, a first shot through some unbelievable deep fresh pow, down through some tight trees, the smiles when we came out at the bottom...I have always ridden alone, but at times through the years, I have met and shared some turns with many here, there is a real Joy to dancing on a mountain, better to Focus on that...
  23. let's not and stay friends and we thought hard vs soft was a divisive issue
  24. I have a jasey Jay (with plate) GS I can part with. DM me.
  25. Yeah, while our interactions here are marked with an unusual degree of civility, I do feel that opening up the politics can of worms has the potential to change that. Believe me, I'm more than forthcoming about my political opinions everywhere else, maybe this is the one venue that can do without adding those discussions. I'll just say that humanity does not seem to be excelling right now and leave it at that.
  26. Can confirm Portland was miserable for over a week. My house is 100+ years old, so on the leaky side - I sealed everything I could with masking tape, put a drop cloth over the fireplace, etc., then used a box fan+furnace filter air purifier. Once that was done it was OK inside, but we spent a week only going outside for dog walks and only when wearing a respirator (bought for DIY projects, came in very handy). We've had some smoke in town before, but never anything this bad; I hope this is not becoming a regular occurrence.
  27. Last week
  28. Still for sale. Make me an offer
