Mate said it's absolutely fantastic, kind of like blading except a lot faster and you can do powder and huge jumps without owning yourself :)
They look like slightly longer, fat blades.
Are you hiring or buying?
How much?

I so wanted to go to that. Damn organising uni didn't realise half the unis don't finish as early as them. :(

Were you at BUDS last term?

About 5 years since I've ski'd/Snowboarded I liked it but I've always wanted to do real Snowboarding/Ski-ing on powder snow not the snow matts.

Did a backflip on Ski's on a jump once and landed it, didn't mean to like but can't belive a landed it, was shook after that.

We went on our uni ski/board trip last week of january. It was great but there was only 75 from our uni, 2000 sounds like a lot :eek: .

Had a big sing-off on the ferry with some english uni. All they could think of was "swing low sweet chariot", we had liek 5-6 songs, most of which i cant say on here other than "Flower of Scotland". We got shouted at by the captain for swearing :/ (at least we beat those english guys :D )

I was going to that with reading uni snowsports but unfortunately a mixture of too much work not enough money and my 21st being the day we travel back has forced me not to go.

Went to val thorens for the first time in dec, was awesome, going again this year with a shiny new board hopefully.

The one we are talking about is an amalgumation of all the uni snowsport clubs. It's called "the main event", the british uni nationals are raced in both ski and board and is generally a massive **** up from what I can see. :p
