- PERMANENT UPF 50+ UV SUN PROTECTION: The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends this fabric as an effective UV protectant only for covered areas. Sun damage happens whenever you are outside, and it accumulates over your lifetime. It can contribute to premature skin aging and skin cancer. The more skin you cover with UV and sun protection, the better! These UPF 50+ Sun Protection Long Sleeve hoodies protect you and your skin from the harmful UVA/UVB rays.
- MOISTURE WICKING TECHNOLOGY – This 100% Microfiber Long Sleeve Hoody is powered by our proprietary PURE-tech Moisture Wicking Technology which effectively moves sweat away from your skin and onto the dry areas of the hooded shirt so you can stay cool and dry throughout the day. This hoody will absorb, evaporate, and quickly dry moisture all while remaining soft and breathable.
- ADVANCED ODOR REPELLING TECHNOLOGY: Our M-Shield Anti-Odor technology keeps unpleasant body odors under control.
- CASUAL & COMFORTABLE UNISEX SHIRT: Ditch those button down dress shirts and polos! Go for a comfortable long sleeved option instead. Our UV Protection Hoodies are made of 100% performance microfiber which makes them lightweight and breathable. They are comfortable on your body and cool for running, fishing, swimming, hiking or any of your favorite outdoor activities.
- EASY CARE: Wash them by hand or machine with cold water and hang dry. Our fabrics are quick-drying and therefore perfect for travel. Please do not use Fabric Softeners!
Over the Gap (3 of 10)
Snowboarder jumps a gap after coming down the slope and heading toward a landing on the "spine".
from wiki (subculture of snowboarding):
The snowboarding way of life came about to rebel the more sophisticated way of skiing, and skiers did not easily accept this new culture on their slopes. The two cultures contrasted each other in several ways including how they spoke, acted, and their entire style of clothing. Snowboarders embraced the punk and hip-hop look into their style. Words such as "dude", "gnarly", and "Shred the Gnar" are some examples of words in the snowboarding culture. It was a crossover between the urban and suburban styles onto snow, which made an easy transition from surfing and skateboarding culture over to snowboarding culture.
The stereotypes of snowboarding have been known to be "lazy", "grungy", "punk", "stoners", "troublemakers", and numerous others, many of which are associated with skateboarding and surfing. However, these stereotypes may soon be considered "out of style". Snowboarding has become a sport that encompasses a very diverse crowd and fanbase, so much so that it’s hard to stereotype the entire community. Reasons for these dying stereotypes include how mainstream it has become, with the shock factor of snowboarding’s quick take off on the slopes wearing off. Skiers and snowboarders are becoming used to each other, showing more respect to each other on the mountain. "The typical stereotype of the sport is changing as the demographics change".
