Greetings from the left coast!
Hey everybody, new member here from California. My first snowboarding excursion was several years ago, but I haven't been serious about it 'til this season, so I'm pretty much still a beginner, although I'm hoping to be an intermediate level rider within the next month. I just purchased a Ride Machete to replace my cheap Lamar Mission board from a few years ago, which I think is kinda a POS. I'm hoping the Machete will greatly improve my riding experience. It gets rave reviews so I don't think I'll be disappointed. I'll find out tomorrow when I return to the mountain. Anyway, this is my first post but I've already learned A LOT by reading through the forums (Snowolf's advice especially which helped me really get the hang of linking my turns) and I hope I'll be able to pass on some knowledge myself and learn even more. I have many hobbies but snowboarding is definitely one of my biggest passions so I'm glad I found this site. See ya all around!
