Hello Readers,
We're back writing the Snowboard Szine for the new snow season. Party season is here, starting this Friday, see below.
Btw, I bought myself Heely's rolling shoes yesterday for my birthday (all models on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods for $39.99). I'm wearing them now. Will let you know how the learning curve goes! Will wear protection! Lauren

1. PARTY ALERT- East Coast starting this Friday

We interviewed Tom last winter here
The has 17 Fall events listed already. Check it regularly so you know what's happening for snowboarders.
2. Getting in Shape for Snowboard Tricks
It's not a moment too soon to start getting your legs, balance, and coordination in shape for snowboarding, and snowboard tricks. Balance is a key component for snowboarders to be able to ride rails and to keep the snowboard on edge. And we have what you need.
These exercises are shown in short video clips demonstrated by Stephen Colgate and filmed by Jean Sapula who are both AASI Level 2 snowboard instructors, and that means they know their stuff.

3. Flexmeter Price Increase Coming
We are the US distributor for Flexmeter, the only snowboard and skate wrist guard on the market designed by a doctor* and proven to reduce wrist injuries. There were 100,000 snowboard wrist injuries last year. Wrist guards reduce wrist injuries. I sell this product because I believe in it and I wear my Flexmeter gloves EVERY time I ride. The gloves are so comfortable and warm that I even wear them to the rail jams after the riding day is done.
The strength of the Euro against the Dollar necessitates a price increase on Flexmeter wrist guards and gloves on January 1. So order yours now. Wrist guards start at $59 plus shipping and can be shipped almost anywhere. Flexmeters make a great holiday or birthday gift for the snowboarder in your life.
Flexmeters are also used for biking, horseback riding, mountain boarding, ice skating, roller derby, and more.
While you're planning your protection for the season, note that we now distribute Azzpadz Tailbone Protector too. Azzpadz are light, comfortable, and so protective that you can make a "knock knock" sound with your fist on the outer plastic shell. I wear these every time I ride also and have for years.
Azzpadz are a MUST if you are a snowboarder over 30 or anyone who wants to help protect the alignment of your spine and protect against painful and slow-healing bruises to the coccyx.
If you bruise your coccyx, you won't sit down comfortably for a month or more, and who knows when you'll feel like snowboarding again?
