as a teenager i had a cheap snowboard from wal mart living in the country, I messed around a little bit but i've never actually been to ski resort with "groomed" hills. since i just got a decent board, i havn't gotten a chance to take it out yet. i'm going to Alaska soon and wanted to get the basics together so i would have a good time and not be bother with "oh i wish i had this". Right now the only style i'm doing is free ride. Do you really think a helmet and wrist guards are essential?
