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.
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.
