Mid-Week Eye Candy: Jamie Nicholls plus Gear
Two videos to look at
OK – first up is some shredding from one of the UK’s finest – Jamie Nicholls. I’ve been following Jamie on twitter for a while, and more recently, been reading and watching some stuff from his blog. I don’t know Jamie personally, but I’ve seen him and his friends shredding at Cas’ a whole load of times – he seems like a nice guy and he’s got some pretty rad skills on a snowboard…
Here are two edits, the first is a montage of Jamie, Rowan and Ethan, the second is a top to bottom run in Laax (plus extras) – you can read about them, briefly, here.
Two bits of gear to look at
Bindings. Not too long ago I replace my old Drake MLB bindings with some Burton Missions. At the time, I was considering getting the Burton Cobrashark Bindings instead. I wasn’t sure about how soft they were, which isn’t necessarily a problem for me, but I thought I’d be better off overall with the Missions, especially with the addition of the powder-hungry, Capita Charlie Slasher…
Anyhow, Shayboarder tried the Cobrasharks toward the end of January – if you’re interested in them, you can read the review.
Contraband. Every time I see this, the Analog Contraband Flask, I want to buy it. It’s not like I’d put it to much use; from time to time I’ll take a sip of something hot and be pleased for it, but it’s a rare occurrence. I just like the way it looks. What about you? Do you take a hip flask up on the hill? It’s probably something my dad would put to good use, but if I bought one for him I’d end up thinking it should be in my pocket
