I run the shittiest 6 year old beginner gear ever and I can do lots of stuff. spins off of jumps, my biggest kicker was 45 feet, I do rails, boxes, steep black diamonds, trails, the whole package. Gear really means nothing. the gear doesn't make the rider, the rider makes the gear.
nah this isnt a poser thing at all, here let me explain. Aite, here is the list of sports i used to do " starting from first to last" football/baseball/basketball, dirt jumping, bull riding, sky diving, rappelling/rock climbing, pc games " pc games led to me gaining 100 lbs, no joke" The only reason i quit rock climbing is because i slipped like 200' in the air, my knee saved my life, literally. Skydiving is odd, once i would get home i would be doing something " bathroom, watching tv w.e" and i would realize that i just cheated death lol... I have always wanted to snowboard, i would literally forget it existed in the summer, and by time winter came by I wouldnt want to buy 1500+ in gear..
I bought all of this gear becasue I AM going all season long, sounds gay, but i just want to carve....... We all have to start somewhere i guess, the only reason i started with what i have is because I want the best set up i can get, later down the line I might buy some ns stuff or what not, but I feel " besided my bindings" that i have a total newb rig, totally set up for my weight, shoe size, etc.
If it wasnt for this forum, i would be rockin a 145 cm board @ 240 lbs, with total heel lift, uncomfy boots, gaper gap, wearing jeans, with my bindings on backwards lol....
I just need something to do in the winter tbh, this looks like something to look forward to when its crappy outside.
