Snowboard Binding Adjustment - Get Your Tweak On

February 6, 2015 8:27:00 AM PST

Anyone ever tell you that your snowboard bindings are as important as your board when it comes to performance? Uhh huh, uhh huh, thought so. Pretty good info actually. Bindings are your link to the board and if they're not working for you, that new Shawn Kass pro model won't make a bit of difference. That said, bindings have come a long way in the last 5 years, and these days even many basic binding models have great adjustability and the potential for a highly customized fit. But are you using the adjustability that is available, and if so, are you using it correctly? Dialing in your bindings with that extra little bit of tweaking can entirely change your riding experience and can unlock a level of comfort and performance that you may have been missing before.

Wake Surfing: The Next Big Thing

November 12, 2014 12:42:00 PM PST

Wake Surfing is blowing up and now's the time to get on board! For those who don't know abut it yet wakesurfing is a crossover between wakeboarding and surfing. Done behind a boat wake surfing uses a special hybrid looking surfboard designed specifically to turn the wake of a boat in to a never ending wave. Beginners will often use a rope to find the sweet spot in the wake and keep them there but as riders progress you will be able to control the board on your own and will be able to stay right behind the boat without being attached. You can literally surf a never ending wave!

Sure you won't have deep barrels, but there are huge advantages to wake surfing over traditional surfing. Not only is the wave endless allowing for an unending ride compared to the often 10 second ride of an ocean wave, but it is also a perfect and designable wave! Simply use your boat to create the exact wave you want, no picking out your wave in a set, dealing with changing wave conditions or worrying about flat days! A never ending perfect wave, if that doesn't sound like heaven what does?

Longboard Bushings: The Forgotten Necessity

September 2, 2014 2:10:00 PM PDT

When picking out and setting up a longboard it's easy to focus on the largest pieces. Start with the deck, then pick a truck color, select your wheel size and duro, load it with what bearing you prefer and you're set! However, one of the most overlooked parts of a longboard setup is also one of the most crucial. Inside your trucks is the magical longboard bushing. This bushing does more to affect the ride and feel of your longboard than nearly every other part of the setup! And we aren't talking about simply cranking down or loosening the nut, bushings are a science! So get ready to learn, because this article is here to teach!
