i strap in sitting down, I could strap in standing up but i'd rather take in a second or two to take a glance at the scenery in front of me, not everyone is fortunate enough to live close to a mountain. just my 2 cents
I agree. I usually go riding by myself. Snowboarding for me (32 years old) is a way to get out and relax. I am in no rush just enjoying my time on the mountain.
