Jake Blauvelt's project Naturally looks epic. Two of the best edits i've seen this season so far.

I'm studying in Canada at the moment looking at buying a bag, board, boots and bindings for $225 CAD or £130. Only problem is the board has some slight crash damage, where the top layer of plastic has come off but the metal edge and bottom is fine. The boots and bindings are in really good nick though, and fit really well (tight which is what you want (no homo))

I'm a total novice so looking to learn while I'm over here so obviously don't know how bad this is. I took the photo to the ski shop and they showed me a similar board they had - said it can't be repaired but it's useable if it's cheap enough to get you started. I've seen people repairing it on videos with epoxy though?

Board: 160 cm (Salomon Pulse 160)
Bindings: Salomon Pact
Boots: Burton Invader Size 11

Does this sound like an alright deal bearing in mind the price:

If the damage is just to the top it should be fine.

I'm not an expert on the gear but it will be most probably be miles better that what you get in a rental shop, so better than what most people learn on.

Seems like a good deal..?

Anyone else who knows more care to comment?

Never skied or boarded before, want to learn though and go away somewhere with the mrs next winter. Which should I learn first, ski or board? Also where's best to pick up some clobber? Not looking to spend a fortune.

Do whichever discipline you fancy most. You don't need any previous knowledge of one to do the other. Learning to snowboard will probably include lots more falling over than skiing.

As for clobber you can get decent bits in TK Maxx for not too much.

tkmaxx usually have a pretty good selection of last seasons stuff as far as clothing go, and for your first trip just hire gear

just learn whatever you want to do, they don't lend themselves to each other

can you skateboard/wakeboard/surf?? might make snowboarding easier. in my eyes i think snowboarding is easier to pickup, but a lot of people disagree. i just find skiing so much more faf with 4 things to look after… i do enjoy both though
