So I went snowboarding last week, picked up a board today!

Last week I went snowboarding with my brother at Mt. High, CA. I instantly loved it and we ended up staying the entire day. I bought a board with bindings from a friend who said that it would do okay for me, considering I'm new and don't have a ton of money to spend on gear. So I got a Forum JP Walker 154, its 10in wide, 3 years old. Its got no dings, dents or gashes, he takes real good care of his stuff. It also came with a bag, and white Forum Bindings w/ a stomp-pad. This only cost me $100 too, but I'm not to sure if it was a good deal and how many seasons it will last. But I do plan to buy a new board next season. Can you guys help me out and tell me if it was worth it, and any advice for a newbie?
here are a few pics of it:

Sounds like a good deal to me. I live in So Cal also. You should try and make it up to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain this season. Have fun.

I heard bear mountain is staying open through summer. Is this true? I was hoping to go somewhere else besides Mt. High because it seemed pretty small....

bear/ summit is much bigger than Mt high, i also think they are better =).

But Bear does not stay open for snowboarding during summer... they have no snow. Bear is closing sometime around the end of this month prob. It stays open for Mtn Biking though.

Too Fast!

Are you refering to the southern or northern hemisphere summer?
Because by somehow God's devine miracle has lined up with all the sphere's and you have snow to snowboard on in the New Zealand summer. I will bend over and suck my own Phalis and blow all over my computer screen
