Hey, everyone. Just wanted to say what's up! I'm an "older" newbie who will be surfing the sweet "valley slopes" of northeast Ohio this winter. Just started snowboarding last season and am totally addicted! Hope to learn more about this awesome sport through these forums and out on the slopes. I don't do park much...mostly downhill freeride and rock a Rome Headliner board. My goal is to eventually get decent here in the Midwest, and (eventually) move out West (or East...VT/NH) for better skiing/snowboarding experience. Thanks in advance for all the advice that the experts out there can give me this season!
