Arbor Roundhouse get!

Finally after a long period of searching i managed to find a german snowboard arbor dealer. In Italy this brand is incredible hard to find… maybe impossible.

When i saw the design of Arbor snowboards i felt in love.

Setting-up for Japan

So next friday we’ll leave for Japan… finally ^^. It’s been quite some time since we visited my wife’s parents but we managed to go to them for this christmas.

We are going to Hokkaido, north of Japan. The weather there hits quite bad ( -23 during night ) but has the most beautiful snow i ever seen. I’ll bring my snowboard with me so today i decided to prepared it a little.

NITRO season 2010

Little off topic today…

I’m not a really sporty guy but i always wanted to try do snowboard and last year i started! It’s been love at first sight even the many hits i took i couldn’t stop get up and move on.

The gear i took is very basic, an entry level Nitro board with low budget Raiden bindings (about 220 euro total), only in the boots i invested some more money… for me an happy foot gives always an happy ride ^^

Anyway yesterday i was pleased by receiving by mail the 2010 NITRO catalogue!

A really nice surprise was that the same company who import Nitro here also started import Osiris and Adio brands, I had some Adio skate shoes directly from USA via ebay, wonder Osiris how they are…

Well i don’t think i’ll took some new gear this year even if i’m going three weeks in north Japan on 18th December, i’m still a “novice” and a long way to go before someone can call me raider LOL!

Well time to go try Brutal Legend demo now!
