Your friends always come back from vacation with ridiculous sunglass tan lines and tales of velvety snow runs and hot tub honeys – now it’s your turn. But there is nothing worse than being out with your mates, on the slopes, and underdressed (and we’re talking fatally numb nipples ‘underdressed’, rather than Borat’s fluro man-thong).
Newly arrived at an Xgame store near you are items from the Burton 2010 collection – Burton being one of the leading names in snowboarding apparel and equipment. If you’re looking to relive those perfect “Cool Boarders” runs from the days of your first PlayStation, set your eyes on the Custom V-Rocker boards ($5,200), an improvement on the previous Custom model in terms of its ability to handle jump and jib combinations, amongst other moves. Besides a wide range of new board designs, there are also a variety of Burton snow-gear and hoodies available, which you can wear as easily on the mountain as off. If you’re more the sun-starved gamer than blizzard buccaneer, Burton’s website can even show you how to get cracking and hit the slopes this season.
Now all you need is company in the Jacuzzi.
Available at Xgame, Shop 8-9, Car Po Commercial Building, 18-20 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Tel: 2366-9293
