Hey all,

36 yr. old from the south east here. Started skating around the time Animal Chin came out and fell in love with skating from that moment on. It wasn't long until I saw an article in a Thrasher magazine about snowboarding, must of been around 91/92, decided I had to try this. Strapped in for the first time when I was in the fourth grade. No kids boards ( or boots) back then so I rented the smallest board I could find which was a 150 full camber Kemper Intruder. I must of had a full month of Mallets! Everyday after school I would head to the small resort in my back yard and sacrifice my self to the snowboard gods until one day they allowed me the gift of linking turns, locking in an edge, and railing carves. I have since competed, worked, and loved every bit of the boarding life.

Cheers!

Nice Hello everyone,

I'm 43 years old and (re)started snowboarding last January after a 20 year long break. Back then I had my first turns on a small hill in Finland and year after that some days in the alps.
Now I'm on it again, kinda hooked. ...and I love it!

>jolt Hey Everyone!

I'm 28 years old, from Australia! I created a new thread but figured I'd introduce myself here too.

I went snowboarding for the first time in August 2015, and have been in love with it ever since! That being said, Australian snow is so terrible it's pretty much 90% ice...Fortunately I've been able to get over to Queenstown NZ and more recently Whistler for some serious powder experiences.

Look forward to getting to know you guys/girls!


Cheers.

I'm your age as well and I definitely end up more sore at the end of the day than I did years ago.
Thanks Kenai. we were not there on Friday but I heard half of the trails were closed due to wind. cool, I look into impact shorts for sure. Alex

I live in Lexington, MA but spend most weekends in Maine. I hope snowboarding and wakeboarding will complement each other and help me improve on both sports.

I respect the riders killin it in the park but pushing 40 now and had too many injuries there, so it's Steep and Deep for me now
