Default Another board junkie in the making...

Hey guys/gals,

Just started snowboarding about a month ago and I'm hooked! I'm 32 and my body is taking it's fair share of abuse, but nothing ever hurt so good. Actually went to the ER today because my one and only fall yesterday gave me a hairline fracture on two of my ribs. Anyway, I'm using a rental now, but plan to invest in an entire package in the next few weeks. I see from the posts in here Forum and Rossignol tend to be the favorites. I suppose I'll look more into them. I'm excited to see so many other addicts in here, you will all be getting lots of questions and ER stories from me in the near future. Just wanted to say hi.

Same here, 26 5'11" and 210lb just started not long ago, dislocated my left shoulder(had to pop it back in half way down the mountain) and my *** never hurt this bad like someone spank *** all day long . I don't don't care, it was so much fun and hopefully I am able to go out there in 2 weeks.

i have been real close to dislocating my shoulder while boarding. You know when you catch your back edge and fall back catching yourself on your arms. Good thing i'm awfully dam flexible. Jumping still freaks me out so i'm taking it slow doing smaller grinds and such. everytime i do a grind i feel like i have conquered the world.

Dave,

You can expect to be out of any type of action for at least 2 months with that injury. I've had my share of rib injuries from playing soccer. BTW, I'm 39 and JUST started boarding and let me tell you, my ankles, calves, quads, back and shoulders and all pretty stiff But it's good pain. I realize that my learning curve is going to be much steeper than my sons (11) and his slightly older friends but damn, I've wanted to ride for the past ten years but couldn't because we had young children to take care of. But now I'm out there taking spills and couldn't feel more liberated I do, however, plan to be a modest boarder, I don't think I'll be doing much air, my back gives out with I do skateboard tricks.

I got a Morrow Lithium board on special and this thing seems to work just fine for the price so I'm psyched to get out there this weekend for another go at it. I live North of Montreal where we just got 2 feet of fresh powder, it made for awesome skiing.

Chris

Hey Tallboarder ! I'm used to the old jokes by now. I got teased at the stake shop when I replaced my trucks last Summer Somebody told it was easier to board than it was to ski but I beg to differ. That's the way I feel about it after one lesson anyway. I learned to ski in about 30 minutes and never looked back. It's taken me more than 30 minutes so far to get comfortable on my board.

Chris
