What camcorder is good for snowboarding?

with 2 comments

My friends and i like to snowboard and we always wanted to take videos of each other snowboarding. We were always reluctant to buy a camcorder cause they always seemed fragile andnot able to handle the cold temperatures. Is there a camcorder that is durable enough for these conditions?

it depends. i saw in APRIL the kodak Zx1 is coming out in hd, the second pocket hd camcorder after the Kodak Zi6. it is said to be mud and water resistant, but not like submerged in water but like in the rain. i dont know if id work for snow, but it will be $150 . but now, there is now the Creative Vado HD or just the creative vado. the crative vado is 86dollars on amazon, and HD one is about 190 dollars. those both have a flip out usb. ther ius also the flips, but i dont like those as much because of there low memory and battery life. and last there is the kodak Zi6 for 150 rite now with a flip out usb, and can be bought anywhere. so there are a few good small, pocket camcorrders and i hope u have fun making videos with them!!!

How long did it take before you felt completely comfortable snowboarding?

with 9 comments

I just started snowboarding last winter, and up until the end of the season I still wasn’t 100% comfortable on a snowboard (after going 10-15 times). I got much better so that I wasn’t falling often if at all, but I was still nervous about falling when going fast. Also, how long before you started hanging out in the park (if you do)?

I took some lessons to learn how to carve, then I just got more comfortable by practicing and going faster, but I’m still nervous when I’m going really really fast, everyone is. I started hangin out in the park alot in my 3rd season.

What should i wear instead of snowboard pants when I go snowboarding?

with 10 comments

Okay i havn’t been snowboarding in like a year and i grew out of my old snowboard pants. I dont have enough time to buy new ones but what should i wear instead?

If you can’t afford a good brand, then just go to walmart, they will help better than jeans. Then when you have more money get a good pair, they keep you extra warm and are very comfy. have fun snowboarding.
