Default Old pics

I'm going through old pics and it made me smile... snowboarding pics hardly exist, no smartphones yet, not many kids had cameras. Found one of '94 with my good old first board, a F2 (the one on the right side, I guess a Flame, from abt '92 or '93 - if any of you ever comes across this board, let me know, I'm looking for it to buy!)


Yellow seemed to be in vogue


The oldest I found with me is from '02, still wearing them first ugly plastic snowboarding boots, they were neither warm, nor comfortable, full rubbery noodles, and bindings still had toe straps; I remember how they squeezed them boots flat when tightening. Ouch!


Comparing boots n bindings to the brand now Lexa and Deeluxe I just got... awwww... I love how the gear progressed the last years

Curious to see your oldest pics!

haha that first pic is old school. i don't have any pics to contribute. many years ago my uncle got a pic of me hitting a jump and eating it big time lol. it was funny, my body was parallel to the ground. that landing hurt like a bitch. the jump was smaller then i thought and i went into a little too fast. i'm dangerous when a camera is involved lol.

Back in the early 80's no one ever brought a camera to the hill. We brought other goodies...I wish I had a pic of myself and buddies to share. I have tons of stories, we still laugh together about old happenings on trips we took together. Great to actually have a friend of 35 years, so many memories, just no pics to share

I found this, a friend just posted it on FB. Not exactly along the lines of your pics but I thought it was cool and I was going to make a separate thread, but it fits your theme kinda....

Yea... the SO's pack are friends who ride together for 30y. Wish I had such old buddies... tho I was kindly adopted by his pack. It's so much fun to listen to their old stories .
