Started at 13, managed to break a couple bones early on in the season, took a couple years off, started again at 16 and had no money and no one to ride with stopped again. I again, got back into it at 18 and have been riding ever year since, now 25.

26, I guess?

Skied a few times a season in elementary school. Tried snowboarding for the first time in early 2008 when I was 21. My first time out I rode everything but the blacks at Cypress. I loved it but the band I was in started to get real serious shortly after that so I never bothered picking it up. Playing music that seriously in an underground band playing some pretty extreme stuff is about as expensive as snowboarding pretty seriously so I never had the time and money. Got kicked out of the band and lost all my friends so now I have lots of money in the bank and as of the start of this season - a growing addiction to the cold, white stuff

Learned how when I was 15 but took a ten year break because no one would go with me. Now at 28 I could care less who goes.
