Now that there is such a demand for kids snowboarding product lines, I decided to
find a local grom to tell us what he thinks of his new flowed Nomis, Technine, and
Dye product. I got to spend the last few weeks of the season with Dante Schipani. He is a up and coming Northstar rider that is brimming
with energy and charisma that you wouldn't pinpoint from your average 10 year
old Truckee kid. Dante is winning competitions in his age group around the Tahoe
basin and is giving us constant amusement on the hill with his antics and his
boisterous ways. Lets see what a nonchalant indifferent kid has to say about some
new product that he recently had the past month to test out. Enjoy!

Paired with a custom sized bar of Otter Wax created exclusively for Coal, you can easily weatherproof your hat and turn it into all purpose gear. Using only the highest quality, all natural ingredients, Otter Wax gives you an effective and environmentally friendly way to keep your hand me down leathers, special fabrics, and collectibles looking fresh for years to come.
