Congrats, it's a hell of a feeling to lose that much weight. I lost 30 pounds last year boarding and already 10 more this year. Keep at it and don't get frustrated with the instructors. You'll be riding blues by the end of the year!

Yup!! Good fitting boots make ALL the diff!! Glad you found a pair that work well for you! I didn't have your fit problems & I still had to go thru 3 pairs before I found the 4th that fit & didn't absolutely KILL my feet!

...don't worry too much about that. If you read some of the other posts around here you;ll see that almost EVERYBODY has an off day!! I started this season, way more sketchy and clumsier than I did at the start of last season, & last was my first full season! I managed to get it back & now I'm getting some new tricks dialed in!! It'll come back to you better than before, I'm sure of it!

I'm thinking I need to take it out one more time to get a true feel, with a tweak in my setup. Changing the dials on the bindings and getting a pair of boots from my sis, so I know they are going to fit

To contribute to the original topic, my new roommate who began snowboarding this year lurks this forum but never posts. I showed her this site and some snow professor videos on Youtube. I don't even think she has an account. I have no patience to teach people, I don't know how you guys do it!

I wish she would fix her computer, it gets old deleting my search history all the time.

Yeah I'm doing the same thing before writing a little review of my new board. I've had it out for about 7 days now but I really want to have a lot of time with it before I post... So far I'm happy though!

I'm actually a chick. Now some of you know why Sabatoa likes to ride with me so much (yelllow fever) and why David Z bunks with me at Test Fest.

See, not all of us leave

just download a second browser for her to use.

for example I am on a mac...I use Firefox and anyone one else who comes near my computer uses safari. I can breathe easier that way. I mean, not that I do any sort of questionable internet surfing but I am just a very private person by nature really.


even better then a different browser is to set up a user account/log in for her with limited access to files and applications. I have a guest account set up on my machine. When my guy (or anyone else for that matter) comes over I reboot into that account for the duration of his stay

another gripe about the iPhone...it was much easier to 'hide' photos and text messages on my android phone! iPhone sucks for security!

um, what? I am rapidly approaching chomps and poutanen in terms of creep level. and Im a chick, I swear!

if a cat fucked a shark, the babies would be called women. snowklinger
