YEAH Ummm… sooo, Pow… enough said.
Music By Luke , The Romany Rye… buy it
Ok so man … this was a week of first for me …
I had never really, properly ridden the Capita Charlie Slasher.
You may remember I had it out a couple of years ago in Japan when spring sprung its ugly face a few weeks too soon. So… the Charlie, Mind blowing ! I love that you can set it up centered on the insert pack, keeping enough tail to really pop off and push through those epic pow turns that this thing is meant for. Bottom line, I have never felt so confident launching off things into pow at majorly high speeds.. Baldface top to bottom in a minute and a half.. RULING DECK !
This was also the first real test for the new Holden stuff I’ve been rolling..
You guys may remember Scotty Wittlake.. Holden teamed up with him to design a great bib pant.
I was a little worried when I felt the stretch fabric but was blown away. never wet and wearing the bib kept all that wonderful pow from blasting up my Jacket. Very pleasantly surprised.
Of course I rolled my usual Bern Macon lid … Number 1 for me. I no longer shred without the lid. Shits just not worth it to die for. I also like to blast through trees, its nice to feel protected…not to mention if you rag doll down the hill your gogs don’t get tossed off your head (I wear my goggle strap inter my helmet)
Gloves .. the usual, My Drop DPI model , thin and perfect. I hate big and bulky.
Deeluxe Rough Diamond 5 … was a little bummed that my new 6′s were sitting at my desk in Vancouver but these boots are the shit ! the double power strap keeps em tight on the ankle so I rolled em pretty much un-tied and just let my binding do the rest of the work.
Oh and of course Union … I actually can’t say much about what I was riding… AMAZING ! We do bindings that are designed to work in all directions.. I was a little bit skeptical… but really stoked on these jammers. Cross your fingers and prey they make em.
OH WE ALSO HAVE SOME NEW ITEMS or well items back in stock.. Check the store to the top right !
Thanks for the support guys
