Alright...since Saturday all I've been thinking about is snowboarding!!  I even had a frigging dream about it last night!  The scary part is that I think I love this more than surfing!  That's a scary thought cause I was obsessing over surfing for 7 years before actually trying it.  Snowboarding has been the complete opposite!  I've been avoiding trying this sport since I've had the chance to back in high school.  It never really appealed to me and for the sake of trying it last Saturday, I find myself HOOKED on this sport!

Here's the thing, when I'm obsessing over a sport, I am NOTORIOUS for wanting everything at once!  Now I admit I can be excessive at times but right now I am in search for snowboard boots.  I know what I want but the problem is that I don't want to spend too much on it since I'm just starting out.  I can rent boots, but the experience and stench I had to deal with when renting really turned me off on it!  So I never want to do it again!  The board and bindings I don't mind renting because again I'm just starting out.

BUT that won't stop me from window shopping for gear =).  My brother in law said that I shouldn't be caught up with looks but with my taste, how can you not? LOL!! If I was good at snowboarding, I would be rocking the following!
Goggles: Dragon DXS Leanne Signature Goggle
Jacket: DC Hestra Jacket 
Pants: DC Sega 10 Slim Pant
Boots: Nike Zoom Force 1 Danny Kass
Bindings: Ride RX Snowboard Binding
Board: Burton Custom V-Rocker LTD Snowboard 2010

I like this place! I love the idea and wish there was a place like this in Astoria, Queens. I am a surfer and found a "real surfer bar" in Point Break NYC. I am kinda jealous ;0PIts filled with surfers, people who like surfers, people who like the beach and people who don't want to live close to town. I really like this place. You know what they have these real Proctor and Channel One surfboards on the wall. It's nice for coming any day of the week and eating a late brunch. The food was outstanding. The brunch and sides were prefect and tasty. It is a perfect "escape" from city living. It is probably one of the only places where you can get a nice frozen pina colada or margarita. The service was on hit. They came up and checked on us so many times and made sure everything was up to par. It gets very active and the bartenders keep everybody having a good time. The bartender was very accommodating. He was nice enough to make a drink, that wasn't on the menu, for me :0) Did I mention the bartenders are nice eye candy. It was amazing to see their “das boot” which is shaped like a boot filled with beer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not drunk…it’s an actual boot shaped beer container ready to be emptied. Try it ..You will love it!! Oh. How can I forget, they even have a wheel o' shots where you just have to spin it and have to drink whatever shot it lands on!! Now call that bar creativity at its best!!! And when I spill a tray full of shots on myself, the bartender so kindly remakes them for me? Good music, too, and the decor helped us weather an otherwise overcast and rainy day. You know that old song "Brandy"? It goes, "Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be. But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea." I believe Brandy works here. No reason, I just do. And that song happens to be a guilty pleasure of mine, so that's a plus in my book. You can simply waltz over to this colorful and warm establishment, enjoy some drinks with friends, and walk home. The bar is right at the center, so you can walk to either side for drinks, and the bartenders are friendly and at your service. There is a variety of seating, good music, and friendly neighborhood people to make your time more enjoyable. Not pretentious, very cozy, I think Point Break is a fabulous place to spend some time with friends.
