Re: General snow stuff

Had some wild weather, an icy day at a resort full of CNY tourists yesterday and an amazing day today in northern Honshu.

Re: General snow stuff

Had 5 days riding at Madarao and Tangram. 2 were epic, thigh to waist deep blower pow. One was warm and a bit slushy, one was whiteout, one was bluebird with no new snow so I spent it on the groomers. Packed the wife and kids of to the airport, now I'm getting a train to northern Honshu for a week-l...

What sort of seaweed, duck?
Got a mate who is a marine botany expert, I'll ask him.

Re: General snow stuff

8:30 to 4:30 with a half hour for lunch. No pauses, ride straight to the lift.

Unless I'm with Mrs Boo or the Boolings, then there's much faff. Same hours, but many stops and about 5-6 hours of riding.

Re: General snow stuff

One warm day and one powder day so far.
About 40cm last night and another 10cm or so throughout the day. Was waist deep on some runs, and thigh deep in the trees.
Been taking it pretty easy as I've still got another 10 days.

Re: General snow stuff

Didn't split the board.

Arrived in Iiyama tonight, there's a foot of fresh.
Head up to Madarao tomorrow, hopefully my board will be waiting there for me. The hotel said they won't be able to pick us up because there'll be too much snow.

Re: Ears

Is there any part of your body that works properly Ricky? Get an ear syringe first, and use hot water in the shower. Be careful! There's also stuff at the chemist to dissolve wax that actually works. He said he got them stringed at their already. My GP had a look at mine recently and was able to se...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I occasionally have to reverse a boat trailer up a steep undulating incline with a 90° turn and a kerb at the beginning. With automatic and low range it's a piece of cake. First try every time. A front towball would make it even easier. Legit question...why are front towballs not a thing for tricky...

I will fight you to the death!

Actually I don't care about the lamp (but the lead gives me hives), and I'm not too OCD, when things are done the right way.

A lot of side streets to get there?
Pay that one.

It was actually only 3 turns, including out of the driveway.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cyclone swell!

I kooked hard on the single fin, my love affair is over.
2 decent waves redeemed the session.
Swapped out to quads for the morning session.
