The New Guy
Hey all, I'm new to the forum as well as new to the sport of snowboarding. I went yesterday with some rental gear that I rented here on base and the gear was HORRIBLE. It's really hard to learn what you are doing wrong if your gear is crap to begin with. The snowboard was twice as thick as the ones the people I went with was, and it was totally flat and had no natural cure to the underside, as well as heavy as hell! The boots were so worn in they cut into my shins.
but overall I had a good time. I got farther down the hill by falling than I did on the board lol. I hope to learn some techniques from this site I can use to better my performance on the slope. I am seriously considering going to a proshop and having them size me into some good gear.
