comment How to determine the thickness of ice?
Anecdotally, I have always found the ice to be thinnest at the edge - won't this make it tricky to get out into the centre?

comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
Because it is the essential way to turn - it sounds more complex than it is. (my son realised what was meant before I did, as he didn't have my old school mentality...)

comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
I've posted up a wee bit on the twist aspect of turning that is essential these days if you don't want to scrub off all speed on a turn with a modern all purpose board.

comment Is listening to music on earphones while hiking safe enough?
I love music, but I would never wear headphones when out hiking - the noise of no cars, no industry and just general wildlife is, to me, so much more valuable than any music I have.
