New old rider

I'm from Vancouver, BC. I'm 53 and I've been snowboarding since Feb 2009. I went up last year as a volunteer parent when my daughter's class took ski/snowboard lessons. I used to ski in the 70's (that's the NINETEEN seventies, thank you), but snowboarding didn't even exist back then. So this was my first up-close look at the sport, and the boarders seemed to be having a lot of fun.
So I rented some equipment, went out to the bunny slope and made a fool of myself. But I have way too little common sense, so I kept at it, and this year I did black diamond runs and even some tamer jumps. No boxes or rails yet -- next year.
Now I actually look forward to winter (198 more days to snowboarding season).
