2011-2012 Snowboarding Journal

A little about myself

I am a 26 year old male. I used to snowboard a lot when I was younger but then only went about three times from 2000-2008 while I was in high school and college. I was very busy with other sports during this time period and unfortunately did not have the time for snowboarding on a consistent basis. Also, I went to school in Maryland so there were not too many mountains in the region.

Last year in November of 2010 I decided I wanted to get back into snowboarding. At the time I had a Burton snowboard that I bought in 2004, it was a Wide board and I can not remember the name of it. It was a 168W and was extremely stiff. I had very old bindings on the board that I could not crank to or unlock the ratchet so they were useless and I did not have boots.


Since I decided to get back into snowboarding I figured my board was fine and I decided to order boots and bindings. I ordered a Boot/Binding Package off of The-house.com which consisted of 2009-2010 ThirtyTwo Lashed boots and 2010 Burton Mission Binding.

I was extremely happy with the boot/binding package. Especially the fact I was able to mold the boots to my feet.

I ended up getting hooked back into snowboarding. I started hitting up the park for the first time in my life and by the end of the season I was hitting the biggest jumps at Mountain creek in NJ. Mountain Creek has some pretty hardcore contests and a sick park so I was very surprised about how much I advanced in one season. I also ended up buying a new snowboard in the beginning of January. I got a K2 Park Star, 157W.


I will start the 2011-2012 journal in my next post. Please reply with questions or comments.

Since I myself have recently found out about this feature, I will share it with you. Snowboardingforum.com has it's own blog function. On the right of the page there is a link that says blogs. Follow it. From there you can go to your own blog and type away.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

It'll be nice to see more people using the blog feature.

.. As long as it's not about damned purses and fashion accessories.
