New Boarder from NJ
So i went snowboarding sunday for my first time. I had never been on a slope before and figured I would skip skiing and dive right into snowboarding. I had skate boarded for about 5 years when i was younger and knew I would be goofy. So.....the verdict was that I loved it. Had a great time. I fell a bunch of times most likely because i was trying to do stuff I wasnt ready for. I did falling leaf down the mountain most of the day trying to get a hang of the toe edge and heel edge gripping on the slope.
At this point I know I want to get into the sport and buy my own gear. I am about 5'7" and 160 lbs. I am looking for a board that I could use to learn on and then get maybe another season out of. I have been looking and it seems like there is so many options out there, i.e. directional, twin, twin flex, single flex........so i just need a push in the right direction and maybe some pointers for my next time out and a place to buy the gear.
