Re: General snow stuff

Took my first tour on the splitboard today, up a closed forest road that wasn't very steep. We had what I gather is a blockbuster storm for Maryland: six inches of wet snow transitioning to powder, some slush, some rain, some sleet, some graupel, then some more light snow to ice it off, with some se...

Checked out the dimensions yesterday. Seems massive for you? I’d be going the 5’8 or 5’9 and I think we’re similar size.

Re: HIRT

Active swimming, without stopping.
Very rare to be able to keep going without a break.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah, north county san Diego.
Stay around Solana Beach.
