I'm Ready!!!!

For the past couple weeks, I've been reading the forums here (snowboardingforum.com, not the MidAtlantic one, in particular), and watching snowboarding videos.

I'm ready for winter and snow and snowboarding!!!!

As some of you know, I've only snowboarded *once*, but *really* want to go out to try again!

Nope, . I think you're full o shit.

You just wanna tell people you're a snowboarder, you don't actually want to go.

You did once, it sucked.

But Gawd damn, snowboarders are cool, aren't they?

Oh fuck yeah.

Hi, nice to meet ya, I guess?

I'm a snowboarder Neener Neener Neeeener.

Hahaha cheeky is right...

Get some used gear, grab a pass to your local mountain, and start gettin those days in. Don't let the falling part discourage you. Once you get past that, things seem to progress easier.

And invest in a lesson. It will help big time and shave some time off of the learning stage.

Hell yeah, get stoked and go for it! Everyone had to start some time and we all sucked when we started. Sliding down a mountain sideways with your feet strapped together on a board isn't exactly an activity that comes naturally to most people.

Now see,.. I always thought sideways looked like a more "natural" position or stance to be in for sliding than skiing ever did!

How often have you gone out on an icy winter morning to get the paper and slid down the driveway facing forward in a skiing stance?

Never,..!!! You turned sideways and slid your Steezy ass alla way down to the mailbox!!! See? Natural!!!

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

I got a message a couple weeks ago from a guy, with kinda a weird name, who wanted to learn to snowboard.
Just some stranger in one the facebook snowboarding groups I'm in.

I don't think he's ever fuckin' seen snow?

He bought a pass on my corporate discount & now I'm gonna sell him every single fuckin' thing he needs to go snowboarding.

I already told him. "You put in the hours & you'll be a snowboarder."
He's fuckin' stoked.

That is called getting ready.

I told him to join here, he doesn't give a shit, he just wants to get out there.
Wants to know if he can take a lesson, NOW?

There's not even snow yet.


Yesterday at the Salvation army I bought a skateboard for $3
Mint k2 anagram 152 $2
Snowskate was $5, but I told that pricing didn't jive with the snowboard & skateboard, so she knocked it down to $3.

Icing on the cake, a DonJoy knee brace that looks like it's from NASA $3. Total $11.

Wrong fuckin' leg though. hahaha

Don't tell me you can find a snowboard, you haven't even looked.

Then why do all the guys doing it wrong turn their shoulder to face down the hill. Because it is more natural. Snowboarding is NOT natural it's learned. Sliding down the driveway on ice I'd bet nearly everyone including you was looking forward with your shoulders "wide open"

Just sayin.......

It doesn't take much to get addicted.

Just be prepared to do the work, take the falls and you'll improve quickly!
