A Tats of Spring

Spring time is a time for new things. Its evident all around us- from the sound of the bee’s buzzing, to new buds on the trees, to the new found squirrel lovers chasing one another through those same trees. The sweet smell of fresh foliage fills the air, and the suns rays, recharged from a winters worth of rest, warm the earth.

While for us boarders (snow) spring time means the end of another season, it doesn’t mean that we can’t also share in the newness of spring. Nothing gets you over riding like the fresh redness of a new tat. Something cool is always a good choice, but sometimes something funny is very rad also. If you’re not sure, you can always get something regretful. Check out what these snowboard heavy hitters having been getting tatted with this spring for inspiration.

Not only is this the closest thing to a hoverboard currently available on the market, but it will also sand and buff the floor of your dinning room.

Stay At Home Saturdays: Cross Training and You

For those of you not lucky enough to live somewhere other than the Northeast, the end of board’in season is fast approaching. That being said, the start of next season is just around the corner, and its prime time to start cross training. My cousin is a personal trainer (check out his site here), so I called him up the other day to talk about some good summertime activities to keep fit for the 2010 season. Over the next few Saturday’s (not necessarily Saturday) a few riding category specific posts will be posted for you to get a little more fit by.

FreestyleIf you’re all about air-time make sure you start your next season on the right foot with some freestyle boarding specific cross training. Originally developed for basketball players, Strength Shoes are ergonomically designed to focus on strength building in your lower calf muscle and metacarpal tonal conditioning. Basically just strap these babies on and go about your daily routine. Before you know it you’ll be leaping at least twice as high as you used to.

Please stay tuned for more fitness tips for all boarding types: All Mountain Freestyle, All Mountain, Alpine (Downhill), Alpine (Tandem), Alpine (Slalom), Boarder X, Freeride, All Mountain Freeride, Banked Slalom, Jib, Park, Halfpipe
