Snowboarding Phone Gear

Burton and Motorola have created a boarding helmet with a built-in cell phone.
Burton/Motorola Headwear

Imagine a snowboard helmet with a built-in cell phone. Or a boarding jacket with an MP3 player! Burton and Motorola have teamed up to make it happen. Check out these up and coming snowboarding gadgets.

Helmets With Phone and Tunes

Burton and Motorola have created a snowboarding helmet and beenie which allows riders to stay connected to their tunes and cell phone. The phone and music system is built-in to the side of the headware and allows you to switch between your MP3 playlist or cell phone with a simple switch. This means you can tell your friends about the 360 your about to land in mid-air or call your mom to say you'll be later for dinner, without leaving the slopes.

The Ultimate Boarding Jacket

The Burton-Motorola jacket links a rider's cell phone or iPod to a system inside the jacket that can easily be operated with a remote control switch on the side of the sleeve. Stereo speakers are built into the hood of the jacket and a microphone is built in the upper section near the collar, allowing you to talk on the phone or listen to tunes without changing your ride.

The helmet, beenie and jacket will be in stores by December 2005, so stay tuned.

    Snowboard Jacket With A Cell Phone?

    • I love it - I can talk, listen and ride at the same time!
    • Dumb idea - who needs to talk on the phone while they're boarding?
    • I'd have to try it out before I decide.
    • Hmmm... I dunno.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
