FedExFTW

It's nice when you look at FedEx's website for tracking status and it says, "Delivered"
Walk to the front door and look on the porch and your packages are sitting there. Talk about a surprise. Guess they don't knock anymore. Oh well, I'm still super happy.

So, This is my first setup, just wanted to show it off. Don't mind the exhausted delivery girl resting on the boxes.















Sitting at 15/6. Little ducked out and might be a little wide but I'll know more what it needs when I actually see snow again. Felt like a pretty good place to start.

Haha, yeah, I bet your knuckles would get busted pretty quick. I was really just surprised and happy it was sitting on my porch. I think its going to be a good beginner setup.

If your beginner setup met mine in a dark alley....well long story short, mine would get rolled and be in intensive care for months. Looks like a good place to start. Enjoy it!

I'm happy to see some one supportive and not like dude I started with way less, you really don't need that because you're a beginner. ^ good job

This year is my first year riding seriously. I was antsy in December so I pulled the trigger on a basic setup to get me by. I found out quickly that I was way past the beginner stage and wanted something with a bit more zing. At this point I've bought 4 boards, the most recent being my Never Summer.

If I'd of just pulled the trigger on it right away, I'd of saved myself ~$1000.

I'm an advocate of doing it right the first time. Sure, you can buy a cheap setup and it'll work. But if you're going to ride as much as possible and you're truly digging the sport...then spend the cash to get something you know that you'll love. Props to OP for starting strong.

Dec - Camp7 Contact 163 - Flow Flite 1's - Flow ANSR Laced
January - Gnu CHB 157W (local deal) Ride LX bindings - DC Balance boots
January - '10 Ride Agenda 159 - Union Force '10 L/XL
Feb - NS EVO 158 - Rome 390's

You do the math on how retarded I am with money.

damn haha and im complimenting you just to make sure thats clear. i rode my first board for 4 and a half years because my older brother had gotten it for me and i figured i ride it till i out grow it. now given the first two years i wasnt able to get out that much but i out grew it after the 3rd year and just kept riding any way. now i loved that board but as soon as i moved on i could tell that my riding was hindered by the equipment i had been using. its not all in the equipment that you use but it DEFIANTLY can make a BIG difference.

the little girl doesn't seem to be resting on the box, i think she's calling dibs on the box to make a fort.

delivery days are the best. like opening a christmas present except you get what you want and not a sweater that you never wear.

Nice gear OP.

Where's the delivery girl's stuff...she looks old enough to start ripping the hill. She'll be blowing past your saggin ass in a couple of years, be your excuse to go to the hill every weekend and you will be the coolest dad. So where's her box of stuff?
