Say Hi to Lakai

November 25, 2011 3:25:21 PM PST

That's right, Wiredsport now has Lakai shoes. We're not sure if you like stylish suede and canvas shoes but if you don't there may be something wrong with you. Lakai has been pumping out some of the best skate shoes on the market and as a result they have been blowing up. That meant one thing, we needed to get our hands on some for the shop (and for ourselves). We finally succeeded and after all of us at the shop spent a few hours debating over which pair we wanted to buy ourselves it's now your turn. Check out the Lakai page here!

I Love the Smell of P-Tex in the Morning

November 19, 2011 3:01:35 PM PST

There's the smell of wax and p-tex in the shop. That's because we now have our brand new state of the art Wintersteiger equipment up and running. This stuff is unbelievable and makes tuning so easy a monkey could do it. But when it gets in the hands of a professional like the ones in our shop this stuff is like having a magic wand for your snowboard. Whether you need a quick sharpen, some temperature appropriate wax, a small base repair or your board has so many core shots it looks like someone took a shotgun to it, our guys will make it good as new!

Snowboard Width - Huh?

July 30, 2011 10:33:57 AM PDT

How wide of a snowboard do I need?  Where is the width of a snowboard measured?  What does width mean in terms of my boot  size?

Let’s start by talking about measurements, because this is where a lot of the confusion arises.  The most common width measurement that is provided by manufacturers is "waist".  The waist is measured at the narrowest point near the middle of the board (usually). But like with all things in snowboarding, different brands measure different things. Some measure  the midpoint between the tip and tail and call that "waist". Others simply provide a measurement they call, "width", but do not really specify what width they are referring to.

Our Angle on Snowboard Stance

July 20, 2011 8:28:11 AM PDT

If you live long enough, you get to hear some mighty strange things. If you live long enough where it snows, you get to hear some mighty strange things about snowboard stance. Does it seem like no one agrees with each other? Sure it does. So...there is always some hesitation to write down anything about stance, because whatever you say will certainly not please everyone. With that in mind, let's do it anyways. Let's talk about the elements of stance, what the options are and what you gain and lose from each.

Prepping your new stick

July 1, 2011 8:10:35 AM PDT

Finally!  The season is almost here, and your brand new board is sitting by idly, not-so-patiently waiting for the resorts to get a little more of that sacred white stuff, and open up at least a few early season runs.   But...Is your board ready?  Sure, it looks nice, and it has all of the latest and greatest technology, but what's the real story?  Do factories send out their boards ready to ride or do they still need a little luv'n before they are really prepped for the hill?

The answer will depend on...

Snowboard Running Length, R.I.P.

November 18, 2010 7:10:02 AM PST

Board sizing has always been a little tricky, but in the past, there have been a small group of readily available stats that have been very useful for comparison and selection by knowledgeable riders. One of those has been Running Length (AKA Contact Length).

As we have written many times, overall board length is a commonly considered, but almost useless measurement. Why? Because the shape and dimensions of a board's raised tip and tail can vary greatly and have next to no impact on the way the board will ride.

Slackline is all the rage, and for a great reason.  There is no better way to improve your balance.  Snowboarders, wakeboarders, surfers and skaters in particular are using this incredible training tool.  Watch out, though!  What starts as a training method can become pretty addictive as a sport of its own.  The new Gibbon Slacklines all include an easy cinch mechanism that anyone can set up in a few minutes without any need for knots, carabiners, etc.  see them here Check it out:

Snowboard Helmets - Fit, Design and Maintenance.

January 25, 2010 8:55:00 AM PST

 

A current snowboard helmet can be a great way to protect your melon, but there is a lot that you should know about sizing and maintaining a styley new lid.

First off, it is important to understand how the current generation of snowboard helmets works. They are not designed to deflect hard impact and then rebound (a common misconception), but rather to absorb hard impact by allowing the crushing (and permanent destruction) of the stiff protective foam that makes up the helmet's primary structure. The idea is that the foam is damaged but the head is not. I mention this first, because understanding that this damage to the helmet is the very thing that will protect your head is integral to all of the points that will follow.
