I'm Andrew, I'm Egyptian
I have been studying in Germany for the past 32 months, and thus had my first contact with snow (no snow in Egypt). You could say I have been snowboarding for 2 years since I started snowboarding in the end of 2008 season, but I've been on the slopes 4 times only. I got my own gear for 2010-11 season. Please check them out and leave your comments on the 2010-11 gear thread.
BTW, I study engineering.
