Hey, I'm a beginner boarder from Australia. I snowboarded three days last year and got hooked on day one once I started linking turns. I think I fell every possible way down Blue Cow that first morning (I was too stubborn to have a lesson, particularly since I was too late for the free morning one) and I didn't realise until the last run of the day that I was regular, not goofy. Swapped my bindings around half-way down Front Valley and bam, linking turns. Now I'm just counting down until our snow season starts here, and envying all the people in the northern hemisphere, as well as friends who travelled there to board. Someday.... that'll be me... Canada and Japan.. and every other place with snow!!!
