I would say welcome to the SF

Hi I'm a snowboarder from Utah, been snowboarding for about five years now, kind of impressive, since I grew up skiing. But I'd like to say I'm kind of not horrible, but others say I'm really good. some say I'm talkative, I would agree, others say I'm super optimistic. I just say I'm a happy little beaver who likes to snowboard.

I'm 26 and have been spending my winters on snow since I'm 2 (first skiing and then snowboarding for the past 16 years).
Unfortunately I haven't been able to ride much because I moved to a snowless country (Mexico) at 19. When I do ride I love all things powder.
I'm looking to renovate most of my gear between this year and next.

I'm Martin from Belgium. I have been snowboarding (and oooh no you didn't "sometimes skiing") for +-18 years.
For the moment i have (main board) a capita limited edition Scott Stevens pro snowboard the "sleepy stevens" with nitro zero bindings
I also own a Burton custom (like so many do), it's an older version with camber. and older burton bindings (don't know for sure what type but very hard flexing).
And a K2 WWW, my freestyle deck. For my k2 i just ordered and received the gnu psych binding.
If you want i'll do a review.
For the rest i have not much more to tell you. Just:
And if you don't like it

Moved to Colorado last year and decided to try snowboarding last Spring. I was a little hesitant to dive in at 50, but my son insisted I give it a try. A lifetime of skating and surfing helped, and after a couple of rough days I started to get the hang of it. I wish I had tried it years ago. This is the first time my family has lived away from the ocean, and I was worried they would miss the beach. Now we're all excited to see it start snowing again!

For the last couple years I've been the only snowboard patroller at my hill. There are some disadvantages to boarding, and some good advantages too. They bug me, I call them two plankers, it's all good. But if I can qualify at a high level of skiing, I can honestly say that I prefer to patrol on my board. So I'm doing it to prove a point, and actually for my love of snowboarding!
Plus when I'm evaluating a potential ski patroller it'll help if I can tell them I've qualified on both a board and skis.
I think you're right... It's a guy thing and I'm justifying it.
On the plus side I bought used skis and poles for $140, the boots were expensive but I still got 60% off. So I'm trying to prove my point on the cheap!
