here's a picture of Daniel, Kriss's nephew...... Daniel's about to leave the roll-in and make his own tracks (rad style and I think this is first time on a pow s'skate).....great shot .....dig all the jackets in the background, yo-yo riding gets hot... here's the text to this email:
"Great time!We loved it I will send you some other pics.
That is a great spot
Daniel surfs big time
Took him to PR last year for his 16th
We are surfing tomorrow after the kids swim meet
Everyone wants a December..."
..same day I get this email from my brother who's on a family vacation to a waveless island in the bahamas...we have both surfed the bahamas a couple times, some of the islands get amazing waves others are to shawdowed, this island is usually in the dark....but the dude gets so lucky ...a big swell forced in some pristine peelers dead in front of his room...haven't heard how he made out yet....every dog gets its day....here's the text to his email:
"Offshore and waist high
Trying to find a board"

Probably throw the toy fish in the car. I often see nice hills, untouched powder, that I always say taht I should hit with a skate."
......"I rode up at one of the ski mountains for the first time, today. The hill is called Howelson Hill. There was some hiking trails off to the side of the ski hill so my girl and I hiked up a bit and then dropped over a ridge into the ski boundary. Hit some mellow blue/green runs with the Lib48 and chiller deck and it was superfun. Can't wait to go back up with the December Deck and my powder subs and hit some back country powder. I didn't want to change off the trucks last night for fear of completely throwing myself off today with a new board. But i'm likely going to do that tonight. I feel like the 48lib will fit with that deck really well, lengthwise. I'm really bummed that we forgot the camera in the car when we started the hike. Oh well, next time. I don't have any footage of myself with my skates, so there's no proof that I actually ride! haha... I could just be a collector for all anyone knows.
My girlfriend is a snowboard instructor, so she was really worried that i would be eating shit all over the place and not be able to keep up with her. We were both pleasantly surprised that I could.
Alright man, take it easy, and i'll catch you later. Thanks again!

occasionally I get emails asking if powdersnowskates really work, or whats the deal with them....
they really need two things to get going...about 8" of powder or better, and a real steep face...if you can't find a steep face, you have to ride straight until there's enough speed to start to turn....back in december we had about 28" of fresh powder in one storm, the next day the powdersticks rode excellent, can't explain the flow and pure thrill of it, since then I have made a few, I even made alittle toy for the local groms, its short, narrow and light. It has no metal edges or ptex on it. just a painted wooden bottom, and its not made for an adult, that being said, its fun to ride, I tend to bring it along because its so light, the other day Rich had a flip cam. and decided to film me riding the toy...nothing special, the hill is to flat, maybe it just needs to be skinned with ptex, maybe the ptex would have prevented me from getting run over by the camera man.
..definitely making more...this is all just for fun, glorified sledding,
should you have one in your quiver? definitely!!!especially if you surf...alaia on the snow...should you buy one? you don't have to....make it out of anything (old skimboard)
thanks for checking it out..sorry if its to corny......
