...we got Jeremy into snowskating this winter, he seemed taken with it right away, he even borrowed a set-up for a weekend trip on his second attempt at riding one.
here he is on sunday riding a FPS 125cm sub deck with 39" december top-deck almost three seasons old... the video is nice because you can get a pretty good glimpse of the bi-deck set-up... I like the way he gets the board back underneath him at 35-38 secs!! Jeremy's fourth time ever riding a snowskate

a day at the beach blog
Kirk has a one of ours for sale. When your at his site, just read a few of his posts, benchmark stuff! (ps he has a photo of some of the nicest snowboards I've ever seen. not my cup of tea, but if your interested,contact him I'm sure he'll email you the picture :)email@example.com
calling for more snow this weekend in town..its already nicknamed "the april fool's storm" we shall see!!! its gonna be a long spring up in the mountains
(last thing; in the video,the water temp was down to a freezing 36 degrees, if you don't live near here, it might be hard to believe, but the water can get (much) colder then that...lots of local surf stuff to be posted soon!!!)
thanks for checking in, and thanks for checking out a day at the beach blog

Imagine standing at the top of a big resort with that sub and skate .. nothing binding your feet, and then dropping in, and heading anywhere ... Just coming in and out of feet of snow in total control!
I once asked bryce of Boydhill ..speed or carve? His Answer: "the best line on a snowskate is a straight line!"
100% sure the boydhill crew will be at hurricane ridge this weekend for the big open snowskate event.. They will have this sub there to demo.. And it will carve..

Speaking of reloaded.. The mountains in CA. Are getting crazy amounts this week, so far over 48" in spots... That's gonna delay summer!!!
Even my coastal hell hole, is going to pick up plowable snow this week,.. Also calling for more snow next week.. These storms will really smack the local mountains adding to sweet base already.. What a spring!

Any mere mortal would have slid out on the traverse but not him, after a bunch of years surfing liddles he knows how to use his edge without pressure... Nothing in this group of photos translated into a useful post.. Snow looks washed out, can't see the board, and slope looks flat.. Useless.. until you see his smile....pow boards are a trip to ride.. I blew the photo, but he made the section.. And disappeared out of my cell video zoom ....was a really nice run... Lots of stuff going on in the powder surfing world over here. Getting emails weekly of DIYers giving it a go! My blacktip board is at smugglers notch, VT getting demo'd by A.D., and some more good news coming from a father son kayak builder in BC, Canada .... And Kirk from foam and function is bringing a squashtail pow board to Sacred Craft Show in Santa Cruz CA. (surfboard trade show)... He's gonna have it on display with some amazing boards he's involve with..super stoked... Looking foward to hearing feedback from all those venues...

I guess bi-deck snowskates are alittle strange!! This pic is from bryce, it's a complete he put together with his new sub, and the 34.5" top-deck we just sent out... He said it sold to a Idaho smokejumper!!... The dog is definitely stoked ...matter of fact he's demonstrating how you stand on it... Don't sit...
Days are getting longer... Water still cold here but surf has been up !! Mt. Baker is getting crushed from what I heard .. Hope everyone is getting some good snowskating in
