The only people who should be considering these bindings are riders who want to point the board down the hill and GO! Balls to the wall as fast as humanly possible.

This list is in a particular order, the top choices are first but the more affordable choices are listed last. Check out our top choices and let us know what you think. Did we miss something?

We were offered the chance to review this fine little speaker and we wanted to share our thoughts with you. Another project launched with the help of Kickstarter, the Rex from Boombotix is an innovative, bluetooth speaker that is ready to jam the tunes and even answer phone calls anywhere on the mountain. It’s durable, water resistant, and comes with a strong clip to hang on your gear. Plus, the Rex isn’t just good for snowboarding, take this thing with you during almost any indoor / outdoor activity.

Some of these boots are higher quality than others but in turn some of these boots will be much more affordable than others. Let us know what boots you are thinking about getting, or think that we left out on this list.
Let’s face it ladies, the only cute girls on the mountain are riding harder than most guys out there. Ask any guy, he’ll tell you the same story. If a girl rides well, a guy has no choice but to get down on one knee. So get yourself a real park board and show those boys how it’s done
