I don't know about CA - but they are available on amazon. If I were you, I'd go to a "boot doctor", I've had some amazing results after talking with experts while having my gear and feet present. Its important to think about all the issues beforehand and be as forthcoming as possible. Go to a mt that may have a place on site, which will provide you with the ability to test out modifications and report back. Sometimes the guys don't even ask for money, just be nice and throw them a tip. I've had J's and heel lifts put in that have changed my days and riding experiences completely. They can even help you understand how your bindings and stance can help with similar issues.

Best of luck.

I would remove this as a gear question, but it sounds like you really need avalanche and backcountry safety. I have yet to take a course myself, but I have read a couple of great books that I would recommend.

Avalanche Essentials

Allen and Mike's Backcountry

If you have a guide maybe you will get some training, but these books are excellent. As far as backpacks go these are many great one out there. Make sure to get something specific for snowboarding/skiing. It will have a pad or hard plate so if you land hard on it your belongings won't hurt you. If you have the cash you migh also consider an avalanche backpack with floatation. And if you sre going to do a lot of backcountry get the ave level 1 training. That is what I am signing up for this year. And a helmet is even more important in the backcountry. People have been found unburied after a big slide with head trauma.

Lifting for hypertropy (Body Building) will not translate into good snowboarding. You need a mix of endurance, strength, power, agility, flexibility and nutrition.

Nutrition: Don't eat like shit, I am not big on giving nutrition advice, but eating Paleo works for me.

Flexibility: every goddamn day, and squat (unweighted)

Strength: (for beginners, Coach Rip has an excellent book)

Power: Two lifts will generate a lot of power, the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. The power clean (part of Starting Strength) is also very good. The clean, snatch and power clean will also help your jumping power a lot for you park rats.

Agility: There are a lot of ways to work on agility, I don't do agility specific work.

Endurance: I ride a bike, but you can also run or have angry bees chase you around.

Yes you can do 100 pushups and 100 situps a day, but training correctly with barbells can get you big gains which translate to snowboarding. I do not train specifically for snowboarding or skiing or biking but here is what my daily exercise routine looks like:

Bike 3 miles to gym.

Gym work (5 days a week, skip friday if doing something on saturday, monday if did something on sunday):
Mobility WOD
Two Lifts
Crossfit Style Conditioning

Bike ten miles to office (pace here is usually about 16 or 17 mph, including stops for lights, etc)

Bike thirteen miles home after work (I am usually running about 14.5 mph home including stops)

u/chop924 · 2 pointsr/snowboarding

FWIW I have small feet/heel hold problems as well. The K2 Maysis boot was good to me, but everyone's foot is different.

Like someone else mentioned you should go to your local shop and try on a bunch and buy the one that is the best fitting and gives the best hold. Also remember you can also buy those J bars to help fill out your ankle area and get better heel hold. I use j bars, and usually put a thin strip of ducttape over them too bc their adhesive has a tendency to wear out over time.

u/psychoguitar531 · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I like these. They fit perfectly inside the ear flaps of my helmet and I can still hear things going on around me. They sound great and have a lifetime warranty. By far the best headphones I have owned for snowboarding.

u/lostinatree · 1 pointr/snowboarding

Already having a workbench will make it easy to tune gear. Two raised blocks to put the board on to make it easier to wax. Two clamps that can hold the board vertically so you can tune/de-tune your edges. A dedicated waxing iron, some scrapers, a big file, dustpan and brush, trashcan, and a little shop vac. If you want to provide wax you can buy a brick of hertel super hot sauce relatively cheap that will last for a long time. Also this is the boot dryer I use and it's awesome.

u/UncleHuggedMeFunny · 3 pointsr/snowboarding

Any sort of those ear-clip Koss's. If you're crafty you can sew them into the helmet, that's what I did. Super cheap (15 bucks) and super nice, actually great sound quality.

EDIT: Found em. Koss KSC75's.

Kit advice, training advice, safely getting into day trips and side country and back country [xpost /r/backcountry]

Last season I started getting into splitboarding. I picked up a Jones Hovercraft split for a good deal late in the season, and really enjoyed making some fresh tracks. This off season I am trying to gear up for something I have found I really enjoy, and need some suggestions for a kit and education. I have already started working on both but would really appreciate any guidance you can provide.

Education and Training

I just read Avalanche Essentials by Bruce Tremper, and I need to find avalanche training near me in Western South Dakota. A weekend class would be preferable either here (probably isn't going to happen) or in Eastern Wyoming or Montana, but I am willing to travel a little further if someone has an excellent recommendation.

What other books or what web sites do you feel I should become acquainted?

Also in the way of medicine, do you suggest taking a first aid class? Mr. Tremper recommends the Wilderness First Responder class but this is seldom taught in my area and is a week long class for which I would have to blow a lot of vacation time.

Kit and Gear

My kit so far is based on what I read in Mr. Tremper's book and some ideas I have read on various web sites. Between a few things I picked up this off season and stuff I already had I plan on putting together this kit for day trips or side country:

  • Float 32 Pack
  • Ice Axe
  • Beacon
  • Probe
  • Shovel
  • Whistle
  • Compass
  • Signal mirror
  • Emergency Bivvy
  • Waterproof matches and a flint
  • Carabiners
  • Rope
  • Head lamp
  • Flashlight and tiny lantern
  • Multi-tool and backup knife
  • Monocular
  • First aid kit, sunscreen
  • Extra gloves, socks, sunglasses
  • Extra layers
  • Collapsible poles
  • Extra batteries

    I am still looking for a GPS - recommendations? What else am I missing?
u/cryonine · 1 pointr/snowboarding

Very cool idea! Though I'd probably just spring for something like this to make life easier... I have a love/hate relationship with corks. Also, thank you for posting that source... a lot of very cool ideas in there. :)

Helmet Audio - where are all the options?

I've been snowboarding for 25 years, but finally picked up a helmet this year now that we're introducing our young kids to snowboarding. So after getting my helmet I started looking to see what was available for wireless (bluetooth) setups. I was expecting more options than what's out there.

The Outdoor Tech Chips 2.0 seem to be exactly what I'd like, but are more expensive than I expected. Other companies seem to just re-brand this item. There are a few wired options out there that then use a bluetooth adapter. And finally, there's many items intended for the motorcycle crowd, Sena, that is even more expensive and seems like overkill for a snowboarding setup.

What is everyone using? Sticking it out with Earbuds? I was hoping for an open ear setup so that I can hear those around me, but still have some tunes.

u/Dark-tyranitar · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I bought these when I started out. They look ugly as hell but they work really well, and they go inside my pants anyway. Still wear them in the park. They run pretty large though.

Heard good things about skeletools as well. Just search for impact shorts on Amazon.

u/productive_monkey · 1 pointr/snowboarding

thanks for the tips!

Is this the gimbal you mentioned?

Did you get the yi 4k? Any lack of software compatibility? (err, I guess it's just a bunch of avi or dvi files. just no gopro software).

That looks like a mean little point and shoot Canon! Probably great size to have on the slopes.

Do you mean that you literally ride filming with the gimbal in your pocket? wow!

u/adonutforeveryone · 2 pointsr/snowboarding

Roughly 25% of skier deaths are in tree wells.
Great book on avalanche terrain and safety.

Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain Brand: Mountaineers Books

u/onebigwaffle · 1 pointr/snowboarding

Get some Fogtech to deal with the fogging up problem. That stuff is amazing and works great. A fan built in sounds gimmicky and something that will break on your first wipeout.

I dont wear glasses so don't know which googles will be big enough to go over them. But try them out at a shop and you'll be good to go.

u/jdubbs92 · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I love this stuff:

Hertel Super HotSauce

Don't bother will different types unless you are looking into racing.

Any ski/snowboard waxing iron will do.

u/jerklin · 1 pointr/snowboarding

For heel lift you can try j-bars. I got a pair of these and they help a ton.

btw 32 (soon to be 33) y/o computer guy here, shred it up my friend :)

u/Anton338 · 3 pointsr/snowboarding

Thanks! I use the HangTime mount. It's pretty sturdy once you find the wall stud.

u/cyanicenine · 0 pointsr/snowboarding

Defogging product is your best bet. The EG2's have huge vents (annoyingly large enough that snow and water fall through the top easily) so venting is not the issue.

I use Cat Crap myself, you just spread it on with your fingers and wipe smooth with a cloth. If you're worried about scratches though you could try this it works alright, not as good as cat crap. The only annoying thing is you have to apply it before hand as it needs several hours to dry afterwards.

u/breathing_walls · 1 pointr/snowboarding

You could try just getting some bluetooth headphones like this and modify those to fit in your helmet. I did it recently with some $20 headphones and some yarn, they turned out really well and I get nice crisp sound (also the buttons are big enough to feel for controls). Took maybe a afternoon to cut all the plastic off and wrap it.

All I need to do is test how long the battery lasts in the cold....

u/castizo · 1 pointr/snowboarding

Hello all, I was wondering if you guys could give a recommendation on some impact shorts for snowboarding. I have narrowed it down to 4 based upon price and availability to me in Vancouver.

The creme of the crop seems to be skeletools and azzpadz, but those are a little hard to get a hold of, as far as I can tell, in Vancouver.

So if you could either recommend one of the four I have pre-selected, or if you think I'm way off base on something and letting me know. My budget is $150.

Hillbilly impact shorts

Triple 8 bumsaver

Burton total impact

Protec ips lo pro

u/lonbordin · 2 pointsr/snowboarding

I really like Kinco's w/SnoSeal and liners. Although a lot of the time the liners are overkill. The Kinco's last a long time... it's what you see the mountain operations guys wearing.

u/steelystan · 11 pointsr/snowboarding

Also, be sure to use Sno-Seal so they don't get wet.

I drew patterns and stuff on mine with a Sharpie then put the Sno-Seal on after.

u/jerzTR · 1 pointr/snowboarding

You can’t go wrong with Chips Bluetooth speakers. They have the most user friendly setup possible. You can control everything without taking out your phone or unzipping. The latest ones are completely wireless but I don’t think they are worth the extra cash.

u/bladepsycho · 1 pointr/snowboarding

Yeah, if I can find the time, I'm considering using Starting Strength as my pre-season workout routine for next winter.

u/Yrrem · 1 pointr/snowboarding

My advice is to get a helmet compatible with helmet speakers. Then any helmet can be used with them (so long as it has the speaker pocket.

These are the ones I use and they held up well for the first season.

u/FullyBaked · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I usually just use my brush after a rub-on. Works fine for me. I've been using this stuff for years. It works for all temps and either cold or hot application.

u/aaalllen · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I had some OutdoorTech BT ones die. So for $25, tools and about 10 minutes to free the wire, I’ve had these as drop-ins: Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth Headphones (Black, On-Ear, Wireless Music, Hands-Free Calling, Built-in Mic, Foldable, Memory Form Earpads, Travel Bag)

They last all day and I can line it up to hit the right buttons thru the ear flap and with gloves on. As a regular rider and phone in a front pocket, the control side had to go in the right ear flap

These might work, too: Levin Bluetooth 4.1 Headphones Neckband Wireless Sports Headset Over-Ear earbuds with Sweatproof, Hi-Fi Stereo,Built-In Microphone and 12 Hours Playtime(Black)

u/mcroft · 1 pointr/snowboarding

What did you use to hang it? I don't have space to store mine, so I want to make a feature of them on the wall. I'm looking at these, but I'm not sure how secure they'd be.

u/TeenageMutant1 · 1 pointr/snowboarding

I don't think there is such a thing, but as you're in the market, I would recommend a Be-Link headset. It connects wirelessly via bluetooth and lets you hear both your music and surroundings. If you wear a helmet, you can drop it into the liner and if you don't, they have special beanies that hold the headset by your ears. You can control the music/volume using the 3 buttons, but it's sorta hard to feel which is which with gloves on. At least you wouldn't need to keep pulling the earbud in and out even if you'll need to take a glove off to lower the volume to talk to people. They also have a lifetime warranty, but I've had mine for a couple of years and haven't had to use it yet.
