Re: General snow stuff

I was always curious about Myoko but the trail maps are underwhelming and the stupid insistence on separate areas doesn't help. I'm sure there are hidden gems though. Nozawa the first time we went there was a mere handful of foreigners. The second time, a decade later, there were more than Japanese....

Re: General snow stuff

The place we stayed the lady and family were unbelievably nice and the food they cooked was amazing. They invited us to participate in events with the locals where we were the only gaijin. They cried when we left. It was two houses from an onsen. I didn't shower once the whole time, twice daily onse...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Seriously though steve, cut up an old steamer and you'll easily get what you want. Buy some seam tape to make the ends clean and stop them fraying. I've done it plenty of times.

3/2 LS Spring used to be a common off the rack wetsuit.

I bought them for years.
They still are. They just take 10 minutes to put on.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Can't find a sealed seam 3/2 with BZ off the rack is why. Sounds like this was premature then ... everywhere I look I see the back zip wetsuit coming back around. Surely you're looking for a unicorn. A 3/2 spring? With high end sealing but your legs dangling exposed? Mostly springs are 2mm aren't t...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Don't get the seventhwave. I had that very model (admittedly a decade ago) but the blurb hasn't changed and it was not flexible and cut really weird. A neck almost to your chin and earlobes. Legs too short.

Large Short sold out.

I have the hyperfreak short arm steamer, but that reactor is the one you'd get.

North America has it's own charm. So does Europe. Depends what you're after.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Lots and lots of whites pinging in the last few days here. Unfortunately they don't distinguish the stats (distinct or same fish, size, etc)

If it's Free Ride is it about steve? Isn't that his pseudo-nym?
