Just introducing myself...I'm from Philly and just got back into snowboarding after about 10 years. I snowboarded often as a teenager (was intermediate) but ended up falling out of touch with my snowboard friends and had no one to go with. Luckily I reunited with a couple hardcore riders and they pushed me to get back into it. I went to a hill in northern Michigan over the x-mas break and fell back in love. Unfortunately I had to use a rental board (which caught edges like none other) but I was able to pick up on the fundamentals after 1 day of riding on my ass. I didn't want to leave after the second day cuz I was confident and enjoying myself. I just bought a bunch of new gear ( 2009 Ride Concept TMS 159/2010 Flow Quattro Bindings) and plan to get up (poconos) in couple weeks. I'm pissed I stopped for so long!!!
Stoked to be back!
