I didnt mention this but i am not intersted in doing tricks or anything. My main goal is for next year or so is to be able to get good at coming down the mountain and making perfect turns.
Right now i am stuck at green side of the mountain but id atleast love to be able to go down blue by the time this season is over.
By the way i board in catalooche north carolina and dont think there is much "powder" snow there.
its not like you gonna die riding wide board. you can sell it later I guess.
