Snowboarding

Snowboard instructions

Snowboarding is a sport discipline that can cause injuries, even life-threatening. When using snowboard kits, take care of your safety and your surroundings,
always make sure your equipment is in perfect condition. Let your bindings and snowboard check by experts, and always perform regular maintenance before
the season. Do not use narcotic drugs or drink alcohol before or during riding. Always follow the recommendations of Mountain rescue service and regulations and follow the
general guidelines for mountain and downhill skiing. Always while riding think about your experience and skills, we recommend beginners to contact an instructor
or a specialist course. Always use a securing strap (leash) that prevents loosing of your snowboard when riding and carrying.

Snowboard maintenance

Before every the season, you need to regularly maintain your snowboard and then repeat it every 10 to 20 days.
 
It is recommended to treat snowboards with special waxes. Apply the wax on a clean, degreased base and use iron (you can also use the old iron on the textile,
set the temperature to the lowest level). Sink the hot wax into the base. Let the layer of wax to solidify and then remove it with a plastic scraper from the
base, the wax stays only in the pores of the base, which is then perfectly smooth. The surface can be brushed with a special brush and polished with a fleece
cloth. If you do not regularly wax the snowboard, snow may glue to the base and the ride will not be smooth. Treat a snowboard even before you put it on a summer
sleep – you avoid drying out the snowboard structure over the base. Before each waxing, it is good to remove the old wax with a special wax remover. It can
also be waxed with liquid waxes that are easy to apply and can be use directly on the slope. The snowboard edges can be sharpen by using special fans, or you
can bring your snowboard to a special service, where they use a sanding machine - it grings the edges and the surface with grinding stones across the snowboard
surface and eliminate small grooves in the base. Deeper grooves can be poured with so-called kofix sticks.
 
Protect your snowboard, bindings and boots during transport by storing them in a board bag. Store snowboard in a dry place, try to evoid contact with direct sunlight.

Instructions for using and mounting snowboard binding

Snowboard binding is not a self-unlocking security and as a result, does not protect against various injuries. Ensure that your bindings are mounted and
adjusted by experienced specialists.
 
If the size of the shoe is correctly chosen, the shoe should be centered in the middle of bindings. If the boot is not centered on binding,
simply set the heel on the binding.
 
If you can not center the boot in the bindings through the holes in the disk, you need to change the position. Boot should be centered in the middle of the binding
by moving the binding heel. The heel angle can be changed by using a variable tilt screw. Adjust the length of the straps to keep the boot on both sides equally.
When tightening the screws, hold firmly disc and tighten the screws to the cross. Ensure that all screws fit properly. Use only original screws that have been
attached to the binding. Binding is set correctly if the shoe is well seated. The basic rule is that the part of the shoe that extends beyond the edge of the
snowboard should be the same on both sides.
 
Before using the binding, clean the snow and ice and always check its performance.

Instructions for use and maintenance of snowboard boots

Use snowboard boots only for snowboarding. Snowboard boots should be comfortable and you should choose right size. Boots must not push anywhere. The heel and the
ankle should be tightly tightened to avoid rising your heel when riding. Snowboard boot usually has a removable inner boot with self-binding. When putting on boots,
first put on the inner boot, pull it firmly and then put on the outer boot. Snowboard boots should be properly dried after every use, we recommend removing the inner
boots and drying them separately. Do not dry them on heating! For maintenance, use only the specified material according to the used material (material information
can be obtained with pictograms on the boots.

Instructions for using snowboard helmets

Put on your helmet and fasten the helmet with your fastener. Helmet must sit comfortably and securely on your head. After turning on the clamp, the helmet should not
move significantly forward and backward. Ensure that your helmet does not obstruct your viewing. The helmet is designed exclusively for snowboarding and skiing.
Never use snowboard helmet for motorized transport, mountaineering and activities where there is a risk of hitching or hanging by a fastening strap. Snowboard helmet
is designed to absorb a certain amount of energy when you fall down. In case of a bigger impact or deeper scratches, the helmet needs to be replaced immediately.
Damaged helmet can not protect your head from injury. Also after very long use (several years) the helmet should be replaced, even if it hasn‘t been damaged. Check
your helmet regularly. Check out both visible defects and any missing parts. Use only water, gently soap and a soft cloth for cleaning. The helmet can‘t be used by
very young children due to a risk of strangulation by wrong handling. The protective effect of this helmet can be reduced by using paint, detergents, chemicals et.
Do not expose the helmet to temperatures above 62°C. Beware - high temperatures are reached on a sunny day even inside the car! Some injuries are inevitable and
completely independent of the type of helmet you wear.
 
Snowboard helmets must fulfill strict standards - CPSC, ASTM F 2040 and EN 1077 certification.

Instructions for use and maintenance of goggles

Goggles are designed only for skiing and snowboarding. They must not be used as shock or fall protection goggles, they only protect against wind, snow, humidity and
sunlight. These glasses are not determined to be used to drive motor vehicles.
 
Clean the glasses by careful removing them from the frame and washing them with soap under running water. Allow the glass to dry after washing. Do not use any
chemical or other detergents. If the inside of the glass is damp, its surface softens and is prone to be scratch. The glasses should not be wiped dry and allowed
to dry at room temperature! Do not put your glasses down, to prevent scratches. Keep the glasses in a dry place in a protective package and do not expose them to
temperatures above 50 ° C. Beware – high temperatures are reached on a sunny day even inside the car!

Instructions for use and maintenance of guards

Back protectors, knee pads, ancle guards, wrist guards, elbow guards and short protections are designed only for skiing and snowboarding. Before using, make sure
that you have chosen the correct size of the protector. It must cover the entire body that requires protection. Position the protector as close as possible to the
body and adjust the straps so that the protector is securely in place without moving, pinching or friction.
 
Protectors provide protection against injuries during falls and accidents. Every time when you fall down, check if the protector is alright and its function is
not limited! If it is damaged, it must be replaced. The purpose of the protector is to reduce the force transfered from the strike or fall to the obstacle. Back
protector bends back and forward in the arc - an excessively stiff protector could transfer the force caused by a fall or a stroke outside the protected area,
especially to the neck. Excessive twisting and bending of protector may cause reducing of protective function. Protectors do not wash even don‘t soak it up. If
it is dirty, use a damp cloth.
 
Snowboard protectors have to comply with strict standards - EN 1621/2 and EN 1621/1.

Instructions for use and maintenance of snowboard clothing

Snowboard clothing is technical and functional garment that is both breathable and waterproof. These properties allow a membrane under the top layer. The membrane
pass through molecules of steam and prevent water access. The top layer is treated with impregnation that repels water drops from the surface of the fabric. Rate
of waterproofness is determined by the height of the water column (it is given in mm, eg 10 000 mm), breathability is given in units of g/m3/24h (eg 10 000 g,
that means 10 liters water may be evaporated by membrane with an area of 1 m3 per 24 h).
 
We recommend using functional underwear to ensure good function of upper clothing - a three-layer principle:

  • transport layer removes moistness from the surface of your body, transport layer doesn‘t absorb moistness
  • insulating layer - doesn‘t absorb moistness, includes all fleece clothing of different weights and surface repellent
  • protective topsheet - waterproof and breathable.

We recommend to wash snowboard clothing as little as possible because during each wash is partially reduced functional properties. If you need to wash your clothes,
use a special washing emulsion that doesn‘t contain phosphates, bleaching or softening ingredients. Before washing, remove everything that could mechanically damage
the material - be careful of the forgotten items in the pockets, put velcro pockets together so that the surface doesn‘t scratch. Do not steep or prescribe before.
Do not spin-dry and don‘t use dryer. Always dry in a hanger (never in a tumble dryer). When washing and servicing the clothes, always follow the symbols on the back
of the clothes! To protect your feet, always use special socks with a terry on the shin, heel, and toe. They will reduce bruises and abrasions.

Instructions for use and maintenance of snowboard gloves

Snowboard gloves should sit precisely on your hands, they should not be too big or too tight. Gloves protect against cold, snow and rain. Inside the glove
is usually an internal fleece lining, which is good to remove when drying. Never dry gloves on the heater! For maintenance are valid the same rules as
for snowboard clothing, for leather gloves follow general principles for the maintenance of leather materials. Always follow the symbols on the product.

Freeriding

Instructions for using snowshoes

Snowshoes are attached to boots (you can use any winter outdoor shoes) with the straps that are part of the product. So the heel and the nose
of the shoe are firmly fixed. The heel can be firmly fixed to the snowshoe or as free as cross-bindings. The selected types of snowshoes are equipped
with a snow pad and a front apex ("grab").
 
Snowshoes are made of high quality plastic. They are designed for walking or running in a continuously snowy field. Do not use snowshoes where there is no
continuously snowy terrain and where snowshoes could be damaged, such as bare rock, rocks, etc. After using snowshoes, rinse with running water and dry
them in a warm room. Do not expose the snowshoe to an open fire even larger heat to prevent their deformation! Use protective plastic caps for apex
that are on the bottom of snowshoes.

Instructions for use and montage of wakeboard bindings

Choose the correct size of wakeboard binding. Before putting on, soak bindings and then tighten comfortably on your leg. Binding must fit tightly on
the leg, but it must not be tightened too much to push them anywhere. In a hard impact, binding can be loosened and loosen the foot, which prevents
unpleasant leg injuries. Attach the bindings to the wakeboard by using the original screws which are enclosed in the box. It is important that the binding is
centered on the wakeboard, both the toe and the binding heel must be at the same distance from the edge. Wakeboard usually mounts as a twin tip
(against snowboard). That means that oth right and left bindings are at the same distance from the nose and tale of wakeboard. Be careful - some brands do not
use a European screw thread, but Whitworth, which will not screw in the wakeboard properly. In this case, contact a specialist service where
they will replace the screws.

smaller size. Make sure the vest allows you a sufficient range of movement. Breathing must not be restricted. When dressing, note that neoprene parts can
be pulled up about 5% when wet.
 
After each use, rinse with clean water and hang it on a plastic or wooden hanger. Do not hang on wired hangers. Keep out of reach of direct
sunlight. Once-a-time wash your wakeboard vest with a suitable cleaner and water. Do not use a washing machine or dryer for washing or drying. Do
not bleach. Keep the vest in a dry, cool place.
