my name is mark, have boarded before but not as much this season even though the conditions weren't that good. just snowboarded for the fun of it. Got addicted after my 2nd day of snowboarding and finally bought my own beginner snowboarding set which just cost under 300 for everything (board,bindings,boots) from zumiez. The season is not over and now I'm going down black diamond trails which is big improvement for me. Hopefully next season i learn how to do parks and get a better board.
