G3 splitboard skins

I didn't know that about G3skins, so I just re-glued them myself with Mec glue after the first season.

Not sure if its just the split skins or not. Maybe just unlucky on my part. I read great reviews on them so figured I would try them out. I am planning on returning them seeing if I can try another pair when I have time. For now Im back on old faithful tractor skins.

That would be a great print for a shirt.

NW Cup dates are up

Dates are posted up here www.nwcup.com

Haven't checked yet, but I hope they don't conflict with any BC Cup races.

Really? Who Cares? After 20 years of supporting mostly sub par races I am glad to have a good series. I think cycling bc should take a year off and go to all the NWcups and see how it is done.

Snowboarding help

I love all the talk about a 65 being a long board. Especially for a split…

Move over children, the men want to go smash some pow now….hahhahhaha

I went from a 166 mojo rx to a 160 Jones solution and I couldnt be more happy. I still enjoy taking out the 166 but over all I have more fun on the 160.

Too long? 155cm's seems way short to me unless your a midget or only riding grommers or park or something :S My ex-gf at only 5'4 rips the shit out of a 160 all day every day

I guess it's all personal preference and where you ride; I've done a season here on a 159 and am much happier and less tired on the 165 wide at the end of the day. 95% pow days though

Height does not have a lot to do with it. Weight and boot size are what maters. Unless she is 150+ pounds she is probably not getting the board to do what it is designed to do, even if it is a super soft 160.

G3 splitboard skins

Any one else running these? I switched from Voile skins to these and have been less than impressed.

They Climb almost as good as the tractor skins but have way less glide. But the big problem is snow building up between the skin and the base of my board.Sometimes it gets so bad the skin starts to shift around.

I noticed that where I trimmed the skin the glue is less tacky where the trim tool slid down. It seems as though that is where the issue starts. Did I trim them wrong? Is there any thing I can do to fix this?

sick sick SICK!!!!

Great vid, nice riding. But I don't understand why every video has to be set to a musical soundtrack. I'd rather hear the sounds of ride and the noises of the outdoors than an annoying, crappy, 3rd rate soundtrack that takes away from the awesome footage.

You could put milli vanilli to that and I would still watch it 100 times.

Fromme on a hardtail

Nice!Can the out of towners park at your house?:D It's being so long I don't even remember where to park. I'm sure I'll figure it out.

You will be on a hardtail! Park at the bottom of the hill and ride your lazy ass up.

So FIS.......

Do they not run the same course? I know they are on different days but can she not just compare her time? Sounds to me like another racer with a huge ego kicking female sport in the face.

Was she not offered a chance to prerun the course before the men and be able to compare her time? If she is so over competing with other women why would she care if she misses a race?

Pro Snowboarder on a Mid-Travel 29er?

But you bitches won't. Because all you haters can do is bitch and complain and say "oh yeah I could do a way better job". But when it comes time to put up or shut up all you do is skulk away with your balls between your legs. Contemptible sad negative bitches

Wow you are an angry person.

shit they will try anything to sell those big wheels. Jones should stick to urban shredding or big mountain snowboard films. Though he would probably have looked better if he was on a mountain bike.

What's with the about-face edit?

To be honest, I am a bit puzzled. Squid Line has seen 1600 riders a month, every month, for the last 3 months. It is likely as "ridden in" as any trail in the valley. Because one of the best builders around was paid to build it, the trail can handle the traffic. I would suggest that all the other, volunteer-built trails on the mountain are far worse for wear, due to the increased traffic that Squid Line's popularity has brought. But you seem to be trying to portray Squid Line as some fresh, loamy trail which doesn't see much traffic which is in danger of being destroyed by an XC race with a max of 100 riders? Because it's "too dry"?

If Ewan has any concerns with the race, he is more than welcome to voice his concerns to us. He certainly knows how to get a hold of us and he's definitely not shy.

As for your now deleted question about why we don't just put up a gate to keep people from shuttling…that is in the domain of the provincial government. They don't want forest service roads gated.

The Quick edit was due to the fact I figured I went off topic with the Gate question.
I dont know why you take such offense to my thoughts. If you think its a good idea than good on you. At the end of the day you are the one fixing all the blown sections. I personally would not hold a race on that trail.
