Sweet Rocker for snowboarding

Post by banzer » Wed Jan 24, 2007 8:16 pm

... nipped up to the Nevis range after work today for a spot of boarding, thought some of you might be interested to know that the Rocker was very good- secure, comfortable with goggles over the top, and light enough not to impede or weigh you down. Quite warm too. I haven't impact tested it, thankfully.
PS. I'm not bragging in any way
ok maybe just a little

Yeah, mine was good when I was out in Canada in the sweet sweet powder.

Shown here deep in the "secret" glade, just about to come in for landing after a cool little booter over a tree stump. This place was a playground, and was chock full of hits, drops and tightness. Winner

Now that was bragging.

Sweet also do the Sweet Trooper, made especially for snow sports.

Looking at the differences in a shop I couldnt see much other than a google clip on the back of the trooper.

It's certainly worth wearing one than not at all.

Here, have some of my envy.

After waiting for over a year for some snow in the south-east, all we got [in Herts] was 3 inches yesterday morning which melted by midday.

Is 12 inches of powder too much to ask for? Thanks to global warming, I'm guessing the answer is yes. Harumph.

It's warming up a bit now so I'm guessing, not that good. It was starting to get bare when I was up on Weds afternoon. I imagine you'd get down the back corries but they're probably not powder bowls. Oh well, better dust off the old kayak if there's snowmelt, if I can remember how to work the thing.
