Strength and Weight? SW is 5ft nothing and probably weighs 110 when his long flowing locks are soaking wet.

As has been repeated, men have pretty clear physical advantages - especially in the area of muscle mass, but I would say a lot of it is social and mental. Testosterone and "male-dominance" play a big part. You get a group of males together and you see a lot of attempts to one-up each other. You get a group of females together and there is less of that push to compete, though it's usually more of a supportive atmosphere.

No reason you can't ride like a dude (or better than most guys for that matter).

This conversation has made it sound like guys have the physical advantage. Truth is, in the real world skills aren't measured like in comps.

Go shred, progress!

OK OK as a woman, I'll chip in. You are right, overall, men are more atheletic and aggressive. Thats not to say women never are. Personally I've always been a tom boy, into roughneck kinda sports that are aggressive and have always gone beyond my limits to keep up with the boys. For me, its in my nature. For most women, its not. I've drag raced for 6 years and its a male dominated sport so that made me want it more. I have 3 brothers... that likely explains it. When I want something, I get it.

When you look at the build of women compared to men, we know that in snowboarding height, weight, and all of the above come into play for how you shred so naturally, men and women arent going to always ride the same. I have to agree that women are just as capable physically to do whatever the hell they want...but it goes back to the mentality. I agree with the social comment, too. Women have a tough time in any traditionally male dominiated sport. They are torn down and left to build themselves back up very often. I guess you could say that women have to work a little harder to play the game if they want it and often have to work harder to gain respect. I experience this in racing ALOT.

It will be interesting to see women in various sports in 10 or 15 years. I say rock on ladies... if you can shred ... shred. I'm not all that good, but if I am out riding with the guys, I am likely (100% likely) pushing myself alot harder than if I'm riding with the girls.

Life will pass you by if you don't jump on.

Haha okay thanx, that gives me hope. (I think that sentence isn't right, but I don't know how to say it otherwise)
I really like to progress but I think I need someone who can teach me.
Is there anyone who want to haha?

In any sport, follow someone better than you... thats what pushes you.

I get that men are more physically fit for this type of action, buuuuut that's what training and working out is for. You ever see a women's body builder? You're telling me SW is bigger and badder than that. It's not that women are restricted, it's that they are to afraid to push themselves past those restrictions. If a women snowboarder dedicated their life to getting to a man's level I guarantee you they could. I've witnessed a ten year old who never works out and doesn't train for snowboarding do a 1080. You're telling me that a full grown professional woman athlete who trains is worse than him because women are weak?

I'm not bashing women because they can't do this stuff, which they can, I just don't understand why. Women in other sports have been able to compete at man's level. It was only a select few who worked hard enough, but why can't women in snowboarding do that. You can always overcome something, don't use it as an excuse.
