Gore-Tex is the most waterproof, most breathable material known to man! This incredible material is used in many outerwear pieces to elevate the functionality to the next level. If you are a tech-oriented rider, look no further than Gore-Tex!

There are three main types of snow jacket. Depending on riding conditions, and your personal preference, you will fall into one of these three categories of jackets.
Soft Shell- Softer outer material that generally has a water resistant coating. Good for spring riding and warmer hoody type days. Lacks on wind resistance. Shell- A protective outer layer designed to keep the elements out. Insulated- Contains some sort of insulation or fill to create warmth. This type of jacket keeps the heat in, but generally does not breathe as well as a shell.
Rocker pertains to the arc of your board. This affects the way the board rides on the water as well as how it "pops" off the wake.
Here are the types of different rocker lines: Continuous - A continuous arc from the tip to the tail of the board Three Stage - The belly of the board is flat and the tip and tail kick upwards. Blended - The edge of the board has a continuous arc while the middle part(between the edges) flattens out in the belly.
The length of your snowboard will vary depending on your body weight and the type of riding you plan to do. Back in the day, traditional snowboard sizing meant you stand next to the snowboard and if the top hits your chin, great, it fits! While that may be a good place to start, weight followed by riding style are the most important factors in determining the appropriate board length.
Breathability is a measure of how much water vapor can pass through your jacket and escape in a given period of time. In other words, how breathable the fabric is. Breathability is important because it keeps you from over heating as well as keeping your body dry! This measure is normally expressed in terms of (g/m2), or how many grams (g) of water vapor can pass through a square meter (m2) of the fabric from the inside to the outside in a 24 hour period. In the case of a 20k (20,000 g) fabric, this would be 20,000 grams. The larger the number, the more breathable the fabric.
A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a cambered board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
When a snowboard waist width is sized correctly the snowboard boots will hang over the edges of the snowboard just slightly but not so much as to hit the snow when the board is on edge. Extending the toes and heels slightly over the edges of the snowboard allows you to apply leverage to the board and modulate pressure with your ankles.

Manufacturers typically describe the waterproof/breathability of fabrics using two numbers. The first is in millimeters (mm) and is a measure of how waterproof a fabric is. In the case of a 10k or 10,000 mm fabric, if you put a square tube with inner dimensions of 1” x 1” over a piece of said fabric, you could fill it with water to a height of 10,000 mm (32.8 feet)before water would begin to leak through. The higher the number, the more waterproof the fabric.
