Base is an upper body protection system, it is developed to prevent unnatural movement of jointed body parts specific to snow sports. The main materials are displacement hexagons which determine locking angle of material and flexible clipping layer to hold the displacement hexagons in place. It’s been utilized in Base Impact Jersey to protect elbow from overextension, shoulders from dislocation, and back from hyperextension. New Zealand merino wools for the jersey are great materials to mimic a thermal under garment. Silicon impact material developed by Dow Corning is sewn into the jersey to absorb any impact and provide a cushioned foundation layer between user and Base protective material. Base Impact Jersey is a smart solution to PPE, it allows user to perform at their best without sacrificing their safety.

Try steering the snowboard over the small area you are in. Practice making turns, learn the finer points of toe-side turns, which means turning by lifting your heels up while pressing your toes to the snowboard; or heel-side turns, which make use of your heels for your turning. Once you have mastered the basics of balancing and steering your snowboard, you can move to a bigger patch of snow, but do not try a long and steep slope just yet.
