yeah, i'm not really one to fanboy over anyone "famous," pro athletes, movie/tv stars, etc. i just figured i have this board which i think is rad (avatar pic), and the rider for whom it was made will be local and accessible, so wtf, why not? it's a wall hanger, but technically in a box with a few others right now. some day i'll bring it out and post a pic.

when i was telling Jess that i bought it as a wall hanger cause the cat looks like my cat, and i also have a party shark and a peter line as wall hangers, she told me i shoulda brought the peter line too cause he was also there that night. 😣

Argh, feeling the doldrums pretty bad right now.  I'm 9 weeks post op from rotator cuff surgery, and was hoping to be on snow and back on a mountain bike by early January.  Had a follow up with the ortho today, and he said at least February, if not March.  March was his strong recommendation.  I take doctor timelines with a grain of salt, but even though he said my recovery is going perfectly, his tone was different today than it has been, and he was much more ominous about the likelihood and repercussions of re-injury.  I'm sure I'll end up riding by February, but either way that appointment was such a buzzkill.

I just saw my ortho this morning for my 6 month post-op on my knee. He says I’m good to go when I feel like I’m good to go, problem is, I’m not sure when that will be. Swelling keeps flaring up big time after heavy workouts, enough so that it shuts down my quad, so, yeah, I’ve got a ways to go.  Maybe 6 weeks out, maybe more.

Bummed for you both

If it makes you feel a bit better I can keep you updated on our consistently snowless conditions here. Predictions for above freezing 8 of the next 10 days. Not a chance of snow that I can find within a 8 hour drive radius. We had green grass on the ground last Feb.  

Fingers crossed it changes for you guys and myself.

That's rough dude.  Sorry to hear.

"Alaskans have picked themselves up and moved on with what looks to be barely a stumble, and it all happened in a week. To give some context for why this is amazing, I lived near Atlanta when a couple inches of snow brought the city to a screeching halt for days in 2013."

The only thing I'd add is fuck Anchorage.  Right outside Anchorage, all good.

Just read a Nate Bozung interview in snowboardmag. Included his and Matty Ryan's video part from Love/Hate. Really makes you realise how lucky we are to be enjoying snowboarding in 2018. I can't believe I ever thought that that level of riding was cool, or even good. Straight airs to flat on random city streets. 50/50s down handrails. Lifestyle shots of them smoking or giving the finger. The terrible hair, the terrible clothes (particularly short-sleeve t-shirts worn over long-sleeve t-shirts). 

So much better now we have Family Tree/Gentem/Korua and everybody aspiring to be Craig Kelly.

Goggle brands. Is it just me or is the goggle-market getting really crowded? There's a ton of brands now. Pretty much all of them make a goggle that looks something like a Dragon NFX or Anon M4, with quick-release lens tech. I just found a new one on Insta called SLUG goggles. 

I'm surprised they can all sell enough to stay afloat.

yup, apparently Ashbury has an M3 manga tech clone now, and one of those euro dudes has a goggle company that looks pretty similar, too. both are $90 with two lenses instead of $190, though. still don’t have MFI, though, which is a dealbreaker for me now.
