Super versatile board at a decent price. Magnetraction helps on the hardpack and ice, and the banana rocker is pretty forgiving and playful. Definitely an "all mountain" board but it also handles well in the park. Good all over the mountain!
a 164 you could probably handle it especially in powpow. Look for this year's Capita Party Shark - basically it is the same board but with way better graphics: a party shark on topsheet and the base says "Fuck yeah bro!" Same sizes available 58 or 64.
I just snagged this of Department of Goods in the neon synth colorway. Out-of-the-box this bad boy is considerably lighter than any other helmet I've touched. I've got a large head, about 7-5/8" fitted hat, so I have a hard time finding one that fits but doesn't make me look like a mushroom. This one is nice and lo-profile, no conehead action, and did I mention it's super light? Can't wait to test it on the slopes & streets this winter!
great pair of glasses. I got these after looking at a few pair of Oakleys, but the O wanted to charge an extra $50 for tortoise shell colorway. I have a larger head (about size 7 3/4 fitted hat) so a lot of glasses don't fit my face very well, but these fit perfectly - they're big without being bug-eye, and comfortable like you forget you're even wearing them.
My heli pro pack came with a hydration pack (made by Dakine) but I've heard that the newer bags (I bought mine 4 years ago) don't come with the pack anymore. I bought a brand new Poacher (larger bag) this season, and it didn't come with one.
