Pros: Good Flexibility, Fast, Tough, Carving Ability, Lightweight, Well Balanced, Smooth Stability, Lots Of Pop

Best Uses: Tricks, All Mountain, Powder

Describe Yourself: Advanced

Was this a gift?: No

First ride on this was fantastic. I’ve ridden a variety of styles and shapes of sticks in the past and this one seemed to be perfectly balanced for my style. Overall the core and tip innovations made this unit maneuverable and easy to control. While it is defiantly light it feels to have great strength.

My Review of Flow Fuse-RS Snowboard Bindings 2014

Fuse RS

2013 Flow Fuse RS

Originally submitted at evo

The Flow Fuse-RS Snowboard Bindings are Flow’s premiere all-mountain binding that combine the feel of a molded Nylon baseplate with the support of the molded Nylon heelcup and ModBack hiback. This results in a moderately stiff binding with a snappy response, but the EVO.8 SupportPanel brings in eno…

Pros: Good Interface, Adjustable, Lightweight, Comfortable

Cons: Difficult Entry & Release

Best Uses: Tricks, Speed, Park, Freeriding, All Mountain, Half Pipe

Describe Yourself: Advanced

Was this a gift?: No

Overall this is a good improvement with the Flow products. I do like that the entire face of the unit slides up when releasing. As a downfall however, the lever in the back seemed to get stuck making it a little more difficult than needed to release. Additionally they seemed a bit narrow on my pair of 32 boots, but were a perfect fit for my slimmer Sims boots.

Disneyland Day 2.1

Disneyland Day 2.1

Okay so we realized that on our first day we were in Disney’s California Adventure. After our first day we realized that we needed to take plenty of breaks. Unfortunately all our planning couldn’t account for the littlest guy getting a little sick. This is really the iconic side of the park. We didn’t explore everything fully through, but what we did see was amazing; especially how clean it was.

Disney Day 1.2

I’m not sure if it is because we have taken him all over the world but our oldest didn’t seem as excited as we would have hoped about the trip. Granted he did have a blast while there and was very happy running around and meeting all the characters. His favorite part thus far was taking his mom on the Tower of Terror and saying that he was braver than her.
I’ve included for you enjoyment a link to my You Tube channel which shows our presenting to him this trip.Just click on the picture above.

Disney Day 1

Disney Day 1

So I work in both Marketing and Sales. I’d like to think that I’m reasonably good at what I do. Fortunately for me my company agrees with this. As a bonus for some extremely good numbers over the past year my family and I were awarded with a 3 day all expenses paid trip to Disney Land trip.
I found out that this place is very exciting and exhausting to both parents and kids. At the beginning of day 1 I went to the gym to start my day. I later learned that it’s best to conserve your energy for the park.

I am about to turn 32. Granted this isn’t very old in Galapagos Turtle years, but I still feel it’s worth mentioning. I like being my age and am happy to grow older. Being 32 I realize that there are 2 things that really blow my mind. 1) I still don’t understand why people don’t like to admit their age. It’s my understanding that with age comes experience and wisdom; this is good right? 2) I don’t understand how I could have lived in Utah for 32 years without using our natural resources to their fullest. With this in mind I am beginning to go out every weekend with my oldest friend to do activities such as snowboarding or mountain biking. I really hope I don’t break myself.
