January 6, 2010

“First you accomplish paint fence! All in wrist -Wrist up, Wrist down.
All in wrist. Up, down, long stroke – Very good. Up, down. No look me, look fence. 

Up… …Down.  Bend the wrist. Downstroke, you bend. See? Good.                  
Long stroke. Up, down. Very good. Bend your knees. Down. Up.
Very good, Daniel-san. Don’t forget to breathe.  In, out.
Up… .

Riders And Sliders: Store Sign Sees the LIGHT!

December 24, 2009


When Neil Armstrong first stepped onto the moon  July 20, 1969 he made the historic statement “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Wednesday night in Portland, Oregon another historic moment took place, The Riders And Sliders Store Sign was installed and lighted for the very 1st time. 

When asked about his sign, Riders And Sliders store owner Erik Nyberg replied “The exciting part for me, as the owner, was seeing the store sign light up for the first time… I almost felt like I was walking on the moon!”

Snow Season Tips from Riders And Sliders

December 14, 2009

First, start getting your gear ready in advance, check out all of your gear for safety and any service that may be required. If you haven’t waxed your bases, get them waxed so they will slide easily!  It’s a given that you’re going to scratch up your edges and bases, everyone does, Riders And Sliders can fix those edges and bases like new in most cases.

Check all your zips and snaps. Does your  jacket have a zipper that doesn’t work, or always gets jammed? Is there a large rip or even holes in your gloves? Do your goggles or shades need to be cleaned?

Riders And Sliders reminds you to do the simple things before you get to the slopes, you’ll have even more fun if you do!
