via Phil Pugliese, from a posting on the skimag site. I've not been back there since (about 2 years ago). I figured anyone who extolled the virtues of Flexons must be on to something!

Was looking for reviews of new gear. Did google search for "ski reviews". There were lots of refs to Epic and to Peter Keelty's. I now happily belong to both.

Mad River Web Page - click on parking lot shot and explore his links. I get my weather that way, too.

Short version: irul.

Long version: I'm on my second pair of K2 skis. I used to spend a lot of time on their site. They had a discussion forum, which was normally pretty sycophantic, you know: "K2 make the best skis in the world, so, what size of K2's should I buy" etc. There were a few on it who were a bit more boisterous, including someone going by the name of irul&ublo (not sure if it is our irul). Anyway, every day he would make posts to the effect of: "I am the best skier in the world. everyone else is useless." One day, one of his posts went a bit further, and crossed "the line". One of the other posters replied with: "I bet you haven't the guts to say that to the likes of Todd Murchison on EpicSki"
Now, I had heard of Todd, and thought, well if this is somewhere that proper skiers hang out, then maybe I could learn things here. I lurked for a couple of weeks, then I dived in. That was a year ago.
The rest is history.

Different irul. When the old K2 board (the one with the burnt orange background and the picture of the guy w/ the red, white and blue face) folded, I stole the name, bastard that I am.

For any of you who remember that board, "Long Live TwoBuddah!!"

Ah, memories!
This time round, I found it through snowHeads (someone on there posted that Epic was back up and running)
