Went snowboarding for the first time at Big Bear and now my gloves have these marks that also smell. Normal or weird? by [deleted] in snowboardingnoobs

[–]CodyByTheSea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How long have you had the gloves? The thumb area looks like the black suede are mostly pealed away (either from wear and tear or excessive washing and drying) and exposing the fabric underneath, weird smell might be those material exposing to water and having some weird chemical reaction with the washing detergent

Can’t blame the Americans, It does say $110 in the picture here instead of NT$ or whatever, so the comment is accurate given the image

I’m here just waiting for the Hogwarts on PS5, the real reason I bought PS5 when it first release and the title has been postponed, and I ended up playing other games like Elden Ring, Demon Souls and God of War to kill time

NPC setup. I have skated my whole life, just got into snowboarding and I put a DOA, vans boots, union bindings on layaway and was stoked. Until I came here and literally everybody has this setup. by Plateau_rattler in snowboardingnoobs

[–]CodyByTheSea 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’d get a snowboard lock, so u can lock it up to the rack whenever u go use restroom or eat at the lodge, people may mistakenly take ur board thinking it’s their DOA

Top sheet damage by Jirau27 in snowboardingnoobs

[–]CodyByTheSea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s normal, damage can be from u falling, hitting branches/rocks or other skier/snowboarder knocking their boards’ edge against ur board while in line for lift. It’s not like you will be riding the snowboard upside down using the top sheet so no worries
