Default image hard to shake!

true snowboarders are cold winter surfers..

they see life in much the same way as surfers and the sk8 influence is there too. many riders enjoy all three sports like myself but i only consider myself a novice surfer and sk8er while i can ride with the best and have riden the backcountry of austria and rado so i will say that bad boy (girl) image came from sk8ing and surfing. you dont have to be a party harty weed smokin beer slin mad man like i was in my 20's i just had to get it out my system!
riding is a way of life, a mantra, true backcounry big mountain riding is all about being stoked and the religious aspect of it. the tats and the music and and clothing all that other stuff like long bleached blond hair that choose to continue to subscribe too is very immature in a way and that keeps me sane and young in such a serious world!

riding is an attitude. if you are straight edge more power to you. dropping in and the perfect run are whats its all about. its about cleasning the soul and enjoying freedom from all the bullshit that our society tell us to do.
without riding i would go nuts. hot women and travel and good music will only do so much.
riding is my life!
live to ride. ride to live. that simple.
chow. chow.
out.-

People who are really serious about snowboarding don't live the wild party lifestyle in my opinion. We live for the thrill, the snow, the board. That's our high.

Definately. I dunno how ppl can afford to go boarding, while living "the lifestyle"... lots of kids with wealthy parents, i suppose.

I was a skiier for about 6 years prior to boarding and i loved it almost as much (but i got bored cuz it was too easy :P)

It's kinda like being a catholic preist. Some go buck wild, down the communion wine and have wild sex parties in the rectory with the alter boys. While others havn't had sex over 60 years, have never been drunk, and think staying up late is going to bed past sunset.

Snowboarders are the same way. Some are bad boys. Some are well-mannered posh kids. It all depends on the person.

I think the nightlife for me is the excitement out on the hill, not in the bar. I don't drink or do drugs or anything because I would think it would blur the fun I am having on my board. I'm kind of a nature freak (love camping, hiking, biking) so I get my thrills from snowboarding by doing something addictive and getting to be out in nature.

Snowboarding is so much fun because you get so many great things. You get to be outside, play in the snow, spend time with some GREAT people, the crazier you dress the more people like you, it's a tremendous challenge, you can have lots of laughs at the expense of other people, you can fall down and laugh at yourself. I just love the whole snowboarding culture and for me, no it doesn't involve drugs or alcohol. Just pure knuckle dragging.

That was a GREAT way to put it.

Its awesome how you can go to the mountain by yourself for the entire day and end the day with atleast 5 new friends and over 10 people you got to know for the short ride on the lift.
