Checking in from Cambridge, MA
I'm a Maine native living in Boston/Cambridge (MA). I've gotten back into riding after five years of skiing and I'm addicted. The only reason I stopped in the first place was because I blew up my shoulder snowboarding in '06 (a year of surgery and PT). I've been three times this season (all in the last month) and it's coming back quickly. I'm planning on visiting my sis and cousins in Breckenridge in late March. Can't wait.
My gear: Arbor Mystic 158, Drake Matrix bindings, Nidecker boots. I wasn't sure how I was going to like getting back on a board, so I picked up this inexpensive package at a local shop for $300 total. It's all in nearly-new shape and I love all of it. The Arbor is forgiving, the bindings are fine and the bots (I'd never heard of Nidecker before) are ridiculously comfy. All this stuff had hardly ever been used, so I think i got a good deal.
Anyway, thanks for having me. See you out there.
