DarkDrive: I did not have trouble getting up on the board, I was just fine getting on and off the lifts. My balance standing still on the edge was a little off but I blame my not boarding for 9 months. If I didn't ride for 3 years I'd feel like I do when I sit infront of the piano, fustrated as hell. I remember what I use to play but I can't do it anymore. That's not to say it doesn't come back faster then if I hadn't learned it before but it does take time. I've almost always had private piano lessons when I've been serious about returning.
Now if only I could find a good snowboarding instructor, for now I've been watching videos like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCToC_MN2Wc
