Tips for snowboarders

These are probably relevant to a lot of people, but they’re from snowboarding experience so…

Quite simple, really. A lot of ‘boarders carry a small rucksack with stuff in. I usually use it to store my clothes in. As I get warmer, I strip layers and pop them into the rucksack. I also use it to carry my lunch. Herein lies the tip – get a strong lunch box and don’t otherwise carry anything squishable. Sandwiches have an amazing ability to work their way into a nook or cranny right where you’ll land on them when you (inevitably) fall. Bananas are the same, and anyone taking a cardboard carton of juice snowboarding without securing it in a sturdy plastic lunch box is a fool or a person who enjoys having all their clothing soaked in drink.

You’d think it would be common sense, but the last time I went boarding with a group around half of them had lunch that looked like it had been run over by a steamroller.
