Default Snowboarding friends!?

Manny of you may not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner.

Haha seriously, the one group of friends I have that actually snowboard are not even close to being as into it as I am.. That said this group of friends goes up like 4 times a season and they aren't very good. Don't get me wrong I have fun hangin and what not with them but I want friends who are actually good at boarding.

Kinda lame, but where's a good place to meet some snowboard buddies? I'd love to make some new friends to shred with, who are better then me and would push me to progress. Right now i'm better then everyone I know (and i dont even think im that good) so I feel like I'm being held back idk

i feel your pain. i really only have 1 friend who goes up with me a lot.

you could make friends on the slopes. find someone from around the same place as you. people usually offer to carpool and pitch in for gas.

Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup.com is amazing.... If your city doesn't have a group, make one.

That site is how I got most of my riding buddies except for Fluid which I found here

that's how I ended up here today. I just found out my best friend and riding buddy is pregnant. Little depressed and it seems there really isn't anyone here from the south east. I'm going to have to check out meetup and if that fails I'll just stand by the side of the road with a sign that says, "pity, party of one...will snowboard for free"

Im from the SE man and I feel your pain. Growing up here no-one goes skiing or boarding. I just got into it 3 years ago. My in-laws have a family trip every year so I get a week there and then got a buddy to go last March for a few days to Breck but he was brand new so he stayed in ski school the whole time. I've done the solo trip(did early season in vail this year) and it can be fun but it can get lonely as well. Was trying to get my buddy who went last year to do a late season trip this year but he just started a new job and doesnt have the vacation days built up. My wife said i could go by myself but I know there would be hell to pay living her alone for a week with our 9 month old.

The season closes this weekend in NC and we were going for that plus it is her 30th birthday. (party-snowboard-party) guess the whole being pregnant thing kind of ruined those plans. I'm happy for her - but this sucks! I do not like the asshats who run the local shop, so asking around there for a riding buddy is a no-go.

I have one buddy I ride with and we're pretty much at the same skill level that I usually ride with, but he decided to go out west for the olympics and didn't come back. I also have another buddy who skis, but he never seems to be able to make it out with me.

Anyway, I've found if you don't mind sacrificing an evening a week, teaching noobs is the best way to get riding buddies. As long as they're somewhat athletic, and don't whine a whole lot, usually it isn't terrible.
