I am Hidde, just 15 years old and I'm from Holland.
I haven't snowboarded jet, tho I did do skiing one year. Since skiing is quite lame I decided to go snowboarding this winter. I'll be in Austria for a week in December. I decided to register here to pick up some info, and read about it a bit. I also have a stupid question: How long does it take before one can, on a decent way, go off the mountain? I'll take lessons, and blue slopes are fine enough for the first time. I've read different things, variating from just 1 day to 3 days, but I don't know wich source should be trustable. Thought you guys would know?
Anyway, I also do other sports, Football, Windsurfing and Tennis. Windsurfing is not that often tho, as I do not have my own gear jet(I took lessons last year and this year for a week(every day) with some mates in the holidays) tho feeling how boards react might be a bit usefull when snowboarding.
Apart from sports, I have other interests aswel... I produce my own music, using the computer, some software and a basic homestudio. Right now I am working on what may be my first release... I also would like to pick up DJ'ing, but it's expensive...
Well my introduction turned out way too long as usual. Hope to enjoy my stay here anyway.
