You guys feel way off topic. I have a inverse got at a show and never really heard of there snow boards only skis. The board is super light but not very forgiving but mad pop. I would say i got a good deal for 100 bucks. Wonder why the marketing in usa is so lousy with these boards.
Good info for medical issues. I was treated for cancer and the meds thinned my bones to osteoporosis levels in hips and spine. Doctor said no skiing or snowboarding because I could fall, break my spine, and die. I consulted with other doctors, and ultimately started a bone building treatment with Fosamax, high dose Vit D, diet, and exercise. I was back on the slopes in 6 months. For every problem, there is a solution. Live life it to the fullest and dont believe everything one doctor tells you.
Still off topic, I know, but awesome story. Never quit.
My wife is a physical therapist. She recently had a patient who had a hip replacement. She was an 86 year old woman. The first thing she asked was how soon until she would be able to ski again. The doctor told her she would probably never be able to ski again. The hip she received wasn't made for vigorous activity.
As the doctor left, she whispered to my wife, "I'm still going to ski," and smiled at her.
