On, a slightly related (...and also quite possibly sexist!) note,.. Wouldn't you think that with women's physiology,.. the accepted wisdom being (most women) have a lower center of gravity than men! (...not carrying a bulk of their muscle mass in their chest & shoulders like men,) Not me mind you,.. I'm a Tubb! I mean real men!! Wouldn't this tend to let women have naturally better balance on the board, progress faster, become "Better" riders??? Just curious!


You gal's need to come up with something like that for the guy's! Oh right,.. "Immature, douche bag, sexist Assholes!!" I forgot!
I take that to be true. Women having a lower center of gravity not only helps in carrying dem babies but also would translate to a benefit in snowboarding. Iirc this has been discussed/debated in other threads before.

I know some girls are darn jealous for that ability to hang with the boys; even 3-4 old bf's still come to the house and they hang out with their new gf or her current bf... baking cookies, making dinners and sewing up tall hoodies, neck gaiters and working on bikes and skis. Its pretty funny...she calls them her boys and just tells them what to do....she's kind of a mother hen that way. As a parent, I think it works well and think its pretty healthy way to socialize as a group.
Ah. Yeah well if I lived in your area I'd probably miss a salon appointment or two! But I'm able to do both the girlier things and hang with the boys...since secret pillow stashes have a whole other meaning on this coast And yeah...many women are jealous of that ability to be cool with the guys. I've lost female friends because they couldn't get past it. Eh, they always have pinterest. ha.
