Splash And Relax Take To The Snowboard

Splash and Relax have taken great care to get ready for the winter leisure season and have a great range of options ready for sale for the snow season which is just showing signs of starting in the south of the country and has already started in the far north of the UK. The USA has already had some large snowfalls this year and so often the weather then tracks for the east coast of the USA and heads for the UK so it is time to be prepared.

Splash and Relax have a myriad of sledges for the season and have increased their stocks this year both in quantity and variety. However Splash and Relax have also a number of items which are on the edge of extreme sledging and the snowboard certainly comes into that range. Splash and Relax have increased the number and range of the Snowboards that they supply and there are some excellent models available at very reasonable costs.

One of the best of the models stocked by Splash and Relax is the Snow Board Red Bear which is a mean looking board some 130 cm long made of an excellent foam construction at a price that is very good. The board has a challenging red design on the surface, which will appeal to the adventurous child and has an excellent performance on the small or the larger hills. The two foot fixings are easy to manage and tighten up ready for a good run. The total weight of the Snow Board is small at 2.5 kg and this allows the user an easy carry back to the lift system or on the trek back home after a day’s boarding. This is the logical next step as the sledging bug gets more commonplace and the adventurous youth seeks different but exciting ways of travelling on the snow.

Splash and Relax have a very strong safety attitude and for this reason they recommend that the user uses a good safety hard snow helmet and also a good pair of gloves. That will allow the rider to be prepared for the odd tumble and come away with the odd bruise but generally in a good condition. The gloves also serve as a welcome protection from the cold snowy days as well as protection in a fall.

Splash and Relax have a range of Snow Boards, which will help the different styles of the riders. Besides the Snow Board Red Bear, Splash and Relax also stock a great “Boogie” Board with a limited 95 cm length which limits the speed a little but allows superb control and is a great snow board when the track gets a few turns which can provoke a challenge to the average boarder. This board like its longer partner the Red Bear Snow Board gives a very comfortable ride.

Splash and Relax note that whatever the option that is required they will do their very best to supply a good quality board to fit the adventurous attitude of its young rider.

30 Days to Go…Bronze, Silver & LASIK-for-the-GOLD!

Team LASIK-FOR-THE-GOLD, is a collection of champion Olympic athletes from across the country who have all had LASIK vision correction surgery by Cary M. Silverman, M.D., Medical Director of EyeCare 20/20.

30 Days to Go...Bronze, Silver & LASIK-for-the-GOLD!

With exactly one month to go to the start of the Winter Olympic Games, American athletes are scattered around the globe, some are desperately looking to secure their spot on the team, others making the final preparations of a never ending quest to deliver their life’s best performance next month in Vancouver, when it matters most. With the clock ticking, the LASIK-For-The-Gold Winter Olympians appear poised to bring home their share of Olympic hardware. Here is an update on each of the world class athletes who are patients of Cary M. Silverman, M.D. and the team of eye care professionals at EyeCare 20/20:

Katherine Reutter (short track speedskating) – Reutter is now a 17-time world cup medalist who is locked-n-loaded for her Olympic debut. She will compete in four different events and is considered to be one of Team USA’s most likely Olympic medalists.

Chad Hedrick (speedskating) – Already a gold, silver and bronze medalist from the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Hedrick has recently returned to his championship form and earned medals in both of his last two world cup events, including a gold medal in Calgary, Canada in December. Hedrick will square off against fellow American Shani Davis in the 1500 meters at this year’s Games in what promises to be one of the must-see showdown events of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Curt Tomasevicz (bobsled) – A pusher behind U.S. driver Steve Holcomb in Team U.S.A.’s number one sled the ‘Night Train’, Tomasevicz and his teammates are on the podium more often than they are off of it. They are considered the team to beat when the Olympic medals are on the line next month.

Eric Pac (bobsled) – Long since considered ‘likely to make the Olympic Team’, Pac has recently shown that simply getting to the Olympics isn’t good enough. A world cup bronze medal in Salt Lake City in November turned heads on the international bobsled circuit and marked Pac as someone to keep an eye on in Vancouver. She currently holds a 5th place ranking in the overall World Cup standings.

Molly Engstrom (hockey) – A bronze medalist at the 2006 Olympics, a World Champion, and a long time member of the U.S. National Team, Engstrom and her teammates are highly likely to do battle with the host Canadian team with gold medals on the line. In this heated international rivalry, silver doesn’t count.

Dan Joye (luge) – Joye, who is part of the doubles luge team of Niccum & Joye, will enter the Games, his second Olympics, as part of the number one ranked U.S. sled. A recent world cup fourth place finish marked the team’s best ever placing – one step up in Vancouver will put Joye on the podium.
