Everybody knows that snow sports (snowboarding, skiing) are the most /fa/ sports.
Winter is wrapping up here very slowly, so let's get a snow fashion thread going. All you northern hemispherians can also get an idea of how to not look like a fucc on the slopes.
Nike ZF-1 Golden Snowboard Boots
snowboarding and skiing are equal levels with slightly different style
How to not look like a fucc
-tightish pants, with some flare, for boots
-simple helmet or toque
--balaclava (1 hole variety) under a helmet
--toque under helmet
--STILL NO BANDANNAS
--neck warmers are low-key and nice to wear
--only once seen someone pull of a scarf, so be weary
--wear your sweatshirt hood over your helmet if you want to into jedcore
-mitts are really in recently, but plain black gloves will never go out
-wear a big t-shirt on the bottom
--wear a plaid orhoodie over the shirt
---no fucking pea coats you assholes
--- big plaid, w/ optional black vest over top
---simple jacket that fits with the rest of your style
example of fit i really like
didn't mention goggles because that all comes down to personal taste
just don't buy oakley a-frames. they're overplayed and expensive
hats are obviously ok too, but harder to pull off
sunglasses are good too, just harder to pull off
everyone wants to look like a faggot on the hill i guess
if you want into freeskier mode, you just have to wear long stuff, the colours dont really matter but the new trend is muted colors, imagina a techy goobernnja and just dres like that, you can also wear colorfoul shiit if you want to look god in photos :)
pic related, my fit from last season
Do it man, it's one of the best sports out there. Just turning is fun as fuck.
please post better fits
I never said wear a "tall-t". just wear something that is kinda big, you don't want to wear a tight shirt that could rip when youre doing all types of hip hot-dogging the the park
I'll deliver /fa/ggots. Just give me a second.
What's the point of giving fashion advice to fuccbois anyways? If you can't get down the bunny hill or are just starting why use Jed Anderson/Joe Sexton inspo?
>But it's good to know we have some real snowboarders on /fa/. I felt alone.
Cale Zima is pretty cool. He's actually pretty effay off snow I think.
Spring time boarding is the most /fa/ time to board....or ski.
>you just have to wear long stuff,
What? dont matter how long it is, you have to be able to move in it, so long is probably a rather bad idea.
>the colours dont really matter but the new trend is muted colors,
Idiots like you are responsible that it is nearly impossible to get outdoors stuff in bright, visible colors! If shit hits the fan, I want to be seen. Fuck muted colors or black shit. Gimme a bright blue or red.
But I am legitimately mad, so its kinda hard to chill. I dont mind that all that overprized "board" brands sell useless shit, they always did that, but I do mind if even legitimate outdoor brands start to sell function-follows-form shit.
Fucking tech-ninja-core-whatever crap.
btw, did the yobeat forums get taken down, or am i just too blind to find them.
You're shopping at the wrong places. Go to actual outdoors outfitters instead of 'boardshops'. I went to MEC a litle while ago and they have tons of bright stuff. It's just that most people don't need bright colours as they're doing groomers all day and don't need to be seen half-buried across a valley.
Also you called that guy an idiot when he was just saying what was in style.
I do agree about the whole 'long' movement being lame, but it came out of trying to keep inner layers dry.
grew up in vancouver, had a seasons to whistler and a local mountain one year. moved to montreal for school, boy is it different. It feels like riding a bunny hill all day. at least its cheap though,
If you are riding dirty it doesn't matter what you wear. Just get a plain top with patterned pants or plain pants with a coloured/patterned top
As a snowboarder I can tell you that while snowboarding itself if great, the clothing ain't /fa/.
Every 12-18 y/o wears a flannel pattern non flannel jacket with a neff hat and a board covered in sk8erboi stickers.
Lmfao, no. Take a look at any brand that sponsers riders that freestyle. They're very similar, so there's no way it's edgy since everyone it doing it.
You're probably still riding an entry level k2 or never summer board with flow bindings and air walk boots.
Yeah I do wear a SnapBack over my terryclava, shit looks tight.
I already know what kind of rider you are, smh. Lame. SMDH.
i got this one last year, what could look good with it?
Most recent pic of me in gear
Looking dope in snow wear only works if you're also actually good. You can't dress like a park rat if you can't hit the down rail or send on kickers
Bruh if you in tha park and you ain't wearing an XXL flannel with your Technine pants saggin' to your knees, headphones tucked under your bandana and smokin' a spliff you ain't doing it right.
I am pleb when it comes to colour matching and I need new gear for boarding.
>these also have to complement your jacket and pants
I think the reason this shit is so hard to work with is because all black isn't viable or safe.
Focus more on fit, your pants should be covering most of them anyways
Focus on flexibility, etc
>jacket and pants
If you plan to go back country, you'll have recco anyways.
Rocking this stuff myself
The pics you find for snowboarding clothing from the internet are fucking shit
>half acrylic half wool dark navy blue cable knit beanie
>black and white striped gloves
Need new boots pretty bad I've been snowboarding with a pair that is too small for 2 years now.
>Avoid quick laces, they break easy.
I'm not a complete chump m8, I never bought in to that crap, complicating things when "old" technology works plenty fine is dumbest shit.
I'm probably gonna try and get some boots from sales cause snowboarding accessories are hella fucking expensive. Bought most of my shit from sales or second hand, currently using Ride DH 2.4 for a board and Ride EX bindings, got the board second hand used only twice and the bindings from sale.
Now that I think of it I've actually used very little money to my current setup.
you only want flexibility if you ride park
if you just ride groomers then you want a stiffer board. a board is flexible so that you can land looser, press and have the board be under your control. a stiffer board helps you absorb ro9ugh terrain, thus letting you get away from less than ideal slopes.
>implying wearing a skin tight body suit and cross-country skiing isnt the most effay thing you can do in the winter
