b) you are cruising low angle groomers on a board of any length, and the wind is coming at just such an angle that snow kicked up by heelside turns gets blown in your face.

Ooh, that smarts.

I think its a fashion thing and done on purpose despite 40 somethings not understanding, like skinny jeans, neon and kiters wearing boardshorts over wetsuits. It was started to increase goggle sales because now people wear them on sunny days too. It'll pass when people realize they don't have to swivel their boards square to their direction of travel like they are at wally world or snowbird, whatever. They'll eventually stop being amazed that: yes, the snow is really deep today and hey, I really don't have to slow down so much out here, and you know, going slow can actually be more dangerous.

bigger boards? that's just scandalous talk right there! :lol:

I got snowed on for about 5 minutes on August 9th on Tabegauche. Although it was a little it got me stoked!
