Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Picked up a new Jones solution 169w and skins half price in end of season sales last week.

Had been planning to spend most of summer trying to stick the edges down one side of my old one back in, but can relegate it to rock hopper and hang out on the beach now.


Where did you get such a great deal for a new Solution?

@Richard_Sideways, yeah I did have a look but not many sizes. I think my jacket is last seasons anyway.

Nz. Summer here. Quite a bit of overstock out there I think with Ozzie’s getting cancelled at short notice.

Picked my daughter up a nitro split and skins half price too.

Ordered some Northwave Decade boots to replace my old ones. Perhaps not exciting as they are just a newer version of the same model, but the old ones fit me so well and are low enough profile that I don't drag toes with size 10 feet on a nornal/narrow width board.

Volcom Rain Gore Tex bib in Canada for £250 which is cheaper than the UK.

Also most likely going to buy a Hometown Hero this week. Just trying to decide between 156W v 160W but having difficulty. Once I’ve decided most likely will be getting some Burton Cartel X bindings to go with it.

Picked up a bargain new Korua Dart 160 on a certain auction site. Exactly what I desired (not needed). Now I'm ' Yearning for Turning'.

Earlier in the year a bargain used pair of Dynastar Mythics to which I added ATK Crests. A very light touring set up. rolling eyes

Wooooooop. New board day. Went for a Solomon Dancehaul……granted tested for limited time in fridge - but was really fun. Current quiver is a Jones Mountain Twin - got to admit, this seems sooooooooo much more fun.

Was looking at a Nidecker Blade softboot carving snowboard (and a few others) online two days ago.
Walked into a shop yesterday and they had one!
Bought it today.
Ride it tomorrow.

Not that exciting but I had bought a Osprey Bigkit duffel (75l) bag and had the chance to try it out on our last trip. I thought it might be just another overpriced/overhyped brand given the prices they go for (I got mine at less than half price from the Osprey website). But having used it, I was pleasantly surprised by its build quality and thought to detail. So much so I jumped at buying another (a second hand 22l rucksack - I'm not a leader in terms of adoption and not for me things at full price wink ) and again was impressed. So they seem good bits of kit even for the money.

Union atlas bindings for a steal recently. They're to go on my mullair which I felt was let down by my old cartels.

i have managed to sell everything (3 boards + 3 pair bindings + one pair boots) and bought only one board and one pair of bindings
a Völkl Dimension extra wide and Gnu Freedom
I had also bought (really no idea) almost 10 pair of boots , nothing was really my number and everything i had to send it back.
I am thinking of Burton Ion , somewhere in September to buy but at present i really have no idea

had so many boards in your past and still bought an entry level board with extruded base from a manufacturer, that does not know how to make boards? Strange to say the least.

I got the new Burton Step in Bindings and boots last winter and as someone who boards mainly with skiers they were a revelation! Absolutely fantastic things.

Also just popped for a Lib Tech T.Rice Climax 2021 unsold stock (not surprising when original price was over £800). apparently it is an absolute monster so cant wait to try that!

Black Crows Camox Freebird, with Marker frame bindings.

We started to dabble in AT last year, during the lockdowns. Had a lot of fun. The plan now is to use these skis when the resort gets too crowded or the lifts are on windhold. We went with frame bindings because AT will be a side hustle for the foreseeable future, so we did not want to buy boots with Dynafit inserts.

Anyone in the market for a freestyle board I highly recommend this one. I'd buy it myself but prefer a 56 for my weight. I've had my 2017 jackpot for 5 years and just love it. I had the 2015 one before but it was too stiff for what I wanted it for. The 17 and 18 are very similar both great boards.
