It’s been ages since I bought new snowboarding gear because I just don’t feel like I ride enough to warrant new gear, but with a trip longer than just a few days looming, I need
loads of things now. So, obvz as it’s my post cancer snowboarding trip I’ve been looking at the Boarding For Breast Cancer kit. (I’ve also been eyeing up the new Burton Step On gear but as that’s been sold out in my size since it launched, I’m abandoning those ideas!)
But looking was a bad idea. Because I am far too poor to be able
to buy any of it but a girl can dream can’t she……But here are some of the bits I love (And need!)
1. These Thirty Two snowboard boots
are beautiful and I love how bright they are! My current boots are starting to wear a bit around the toes and aren’t the most supportive so, a new pair is probably required!
2. And somehow I managed to snap my flat light lenses AND scratch my iriduim ones on my mid chemo trip, so new goggles are high on the need
list and I’d take a
pair of these Von Zipper
bad boys in a moment!
3. One of the lasting effects of treatment has been a thirst that I just can’t shake, not sure why, but I have – it does mean that I have a growing collection of water bottles in my house, I really like this Yeti
4.I also adore these Union Milan
bindings – that pink ombre is just
too pretty! Binding are right at the top of the list of things that need replacing though as my toe strap, no matter how often I replace it, just keeps popping off, which isn’t ideal at all!
5. And for good measure I’d throw in a pair of these awesome wolf socks from Volcom
, because you can never have enough snowboard socks!
But it’s back to reality for me – as much as I want and need new gear, these things will just have to be added to my Christmas list because there’s not much chance of be kitting myself out with all new stuff for a while!
Are you heading to the mountains this year? If so, what is on your must have list?
