Someone just delete their life. I'll ask the owners of a gun to help.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

I took lessons when I started 20 years ago and I strongly recommend them to anybody. They've helped my girlfriend past several plateaus in her riding.

Im never taking lessons, i have been boarding for almost 10 years now and this is not the time to take lessons. I started when i was 8 and i have been boarding every year since. I do not care if my snowboarding sucks or if you think( not you poutanen) i should get lessons. im not, because i enjoy riding at the level i am at. I can see people taking lessons to get started or to learn how to do basic movments, but for those who take lessons, i dont respect as much. Its those who put on a board and never give up, even if they fall a million times.

I question the people that DON'T fall... I fall every day, sometimes every run! That's part of the constant push to get better.

people that dont fall, dont push themselfs. I fall all the fricking time, not the kind of stupid fall but doing drops and shit. I usually dont fall just boarding tough. But im really clumsy so i trip about everywhere.
