over the off season, watch vids of learnin, read, and watch for gear. consider SA vids and/or snomie/Jed

Buy boots first and read and understand this

if you get board bindings can go used, get intermediate stuff

then go to back yard with gear on and hop and jump around

do squats, balance stuff...watch more learnin vids

save yo money, buy season's pass...go have moar fun

REPEAT
This. This is what I will do. I might even go one other day this week. (I'll avoid weekends, and all their craziness, for now)

We'll see. If I feel comfortable enough, I might try one of the blues.
