||Lucky me that I can fit into kid sized helmets =) But really, it is dumb that they would make it for kids. They would make so much more money making it in adult sizes

|| what would be better is if you could download an app that overlays a line or something on the snow so you can follow it... then it has audio queues to tell you when to jump or turn, etc. to help learn a trick. [/QUOTE] That might be one of the best ideas I have heard. That would be so freaking sweet. I think these goggles would be pretty tight to have, but I'm not sure it has a functional purpose on groomed mountains other than saying wow look what I did. Backcountry this could be pretty useful

||I moved out west from the east coast and it was definitely the first time I had seen it. I'm starting to get into slacklining more. High lining seems pretty tight and once I get better I REALLY want to do a high line to base jump or something like that. Did anyone on here go to the Reel Rock Film Tour? There was a video of some guy I can't remember the name of who was just insane!

||You should say it will take 5 seconds, it takes more time for the screen to load than to take the quiz. I am curious about your results too! You should let us know what you are done with the assignment

|| ] I go thru a 12 pack in about 2-3 days. It is terrible. But I love diet coke SO much, especially diet coke with lime. I go in and out of craving for iced water with lime, so I have to agree with the person who said something about iced water above. But I still love diet coke. Personally, coke zero tastes more like regular coke than diet coke, but I don't like the taste of regular coke, so it doesn't matter to me anyways.

|| I would think the footage at night would suck though, no? A mix of light and dark areas where the light areas are extra washed out.[/QUOTE] Well I'm talking about situations where the only light is a car headlight or a flashlight. I've been out a couple times, pitch black, and I think night vision would have improved the quality. I'm not saying ALL Gopros should be equip with it because it would be expensive and a lot of people wouldn't use it.

||Mount Baldy in California. I hiked up the mountain because I couldn't find the lift. Turns out it was parallel to me about a 1/4 mile away. Wow was that exhausting
|10/24/2011 10:02:27 AM
||I agree, it doesn't seem all that amazing. Just my personal 2 cents, a night vision option would be amazing. Yes, I know it would cost more but it would be worth it to get some solid footage at night

|| if you try them on in a store, and get the expert help from a shop, don't be a total d!ck and buy them online.[/QUOTE] I've never gotten expert help from my local board shops. Just kids bringing out different sizes of different boots. If I were to get propper service/advice on boot fittings I may feel differently, but I haven't experienced that yet. So, if I could save $40-$60 buying them online I don't feel that makes me a "total d!ck", more of a smart shopper. My first boot shopping experience, the salesman told me the $120 forum recons were the right fit. After doing some research, I found that these model boots were going for $80 on most online sites, and that the size was too big for my foot. He recommended a 9.5, I wear an 8.5 in Forum. No mention of heel lift or leaning forward for propper fitting. So, I prefer to look out for myself and not get ripped off with overpriced bad fitting boots.[/QUOTE] I have no problem trying stuff on in a store and then walking out, especially if the customer service is at the level of most snowboard shops: "Come find me if you need help, otherwise I'm going to go on facebook and ignore you"

||For $30 they are well worth it. I got them too. They may have the best styles or breaking technology, but they are $30. I don't expect to get Oakley quality for $30.

||Hello everyone! I am entered in a contest right now to win a surfing trip to the Dominican Republic. If you guys have a minute, it'd be sweet for you to vote for me. All you have to do is click on the stars. No signing up or anything. Thanks everyone! http://www.sassglobaltravel.com/6647

||Alright, thanks guys. I just wanted to make sure that no one had an experience where they knew that Oakley didn't do group discounts. I will contact them directly
|9/30/2011 10:05:40 AM
||I was wondering if anyone knew if Oakley gives group discounts to organizations who buy for say 15 people or so. My school ski/snowboard club is looking to hook the members up with some deals and I can't find much on the website other than for flat out donations, which we obviously don't qualify for. If anyone has information I would appreciate it!

||Go in groups. I didn't go but they got a 4 day trip with lodging, transportation and passes for $115 a person. They went somewhere in Utah I forget where. But still, that is a super sweet deal

||Volcom has a line of water resistant hoodies and they work pretty well. They are a lot warmer than a regular hoodie though. A little pricey for a sweatshirt though. I think I paid $60 for mine
