Hey. My name's Collin. I'm 13 and I got my first snowboard when I was eight years old, and got my first real board about two seasons ago and I've been going to the local mountain regularly since then. I'm definitely not the best rider on the mountain, but I'm more experienced than a lot of riders. My favorite place to hangout on the mountain is in the terrain park hitting jumps, boxes and rails. I also skateboard and play soccer. I decided I'd join a snowboarding forum to talk to some snowboarders before the season starts.
