Yeah this is a pretty good description for me too... Because there are always more ways to push yourself, there are more and more high points on the road. Unless you can do double quark 1440s, carve at olympic level speeds, AND launch of cliffs and trees in the off piste, there is always something more to learn and do. The curve never stops really...

I started snowboarding in 2001 and I was in my 30s. I had always been fascinated by footage of back country boarding so once I could afford time and money to learn I went for it. I started out on a dry ski slope which was hard work and painful but I pushed through it as I was determined to get into this great sport. I wanted a reason to enjoy winter and a different way to experience beautiful mountain scenery. My first season I dislocated a thumb and pulled the ligaments in my ankle but it did not deter me because the adrenaline rushes and thrill I had got far outweighed the pain. I persevered the following season and experienced powder for the first time during which I pulled muscles between my ribs that took months to repair. It didnt matter though because I was obsessed by now. So over 10 years later I am an experienced boarder who has 2 overseas trips every year (Japan and NZ as I live in Oz), has a holiday home near the best Victorian resort so I can go every weekend through the winter, spent 3 months in Chamonix in 2011, go heliboarding in NZ when I can afford it and spend all my time off piste in the back country wherever possible. I am just as obsessed with this awesome sport and love the fact that I look forward to and embrace winter, rather than dread it like many of my friends. This sport keeps me fit and enhances my life. I am never going to stop.

I snowboard because it`s simply the best sport that I`ve ever tried. No other sport has the same feeling compare to snowboarding. I enjoy the feeling of going down the hill, shreding with me mate and seeing the snow. Nowadays, snowboarding is not only a sport for me but it becomes my life. I live, I breath, I grow with it.
