Merry Christmas

My wife and I just picked up a 2012 GNU Billy goat for our son for x-mas. I am going to have a hard time not acting like a little kid and grabbing him by the arm, sneaking him to our closet and showing it to him. Then making him promise to not tell mom. Currently he's riding a Burton TWC Standard. This is going to be such a huge upgrade for him I'm soooo STOKED! and it's still a month and a half away.

My reaction to first snow fall

I don't know what is more awesome... that you got your son a sick board, or that you are probably just as stoked about it as he is/will be.

Both my boys 15 & 16 are getting new boards now and they know it but it is their Christmas gift. We told them they need to act surprised when they open them.

Dirty not sure who will be more excited you or your boy hahahahaaa

Awe man...We literally just got it home and I am drooling at the opportunity to show him. It's going to be a looooong month and a half.
Snowboarding is our thing. A passion that him and I both love and share. It gives us an opportunity to go away for a weekend and put all the weeks stresses behind us and just enjoy time together and the outdoors.

I can relate. Riding washes away my work week and I get to spend time with my 2 boys.
Wish the whole family rode but wife and daughter have ZERO interest and the family budget isn't there for 5 riders. Hard to support 3 riders. One boy now has a job to buy some of his own gear and that helps.
