Default AL from Langley, BC

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum here. I'm 27 and have been boarding for 12+ years and at least 25 times a season. I'm a passholder at Mount Seymour so I'm up there fairly often. Over the years I've had season passes to Seymour, Grouse, Cypress and Whistler. I also ride Baker every other weekend and Whistler when I get a discount or have extra cash. I've also been to Big White numerous times, Silver Star, Sum Peaks, Fernie, Lake Louise, Kicking Horse, Hemlock, Manning.
Last year I joined the North Shore Snowboard Team in hope to turn semi-pro and get into a few comp's. I still haven't gone into a comp but I've got quite a few pro shots done and have a photographer that bugs me every time the sun comes out.
If it's really nice out on a weekend, I usually head to the Seymour backcountry and build a nice booter and have a few beers and huck myself into the air for the day. 2 of my good riding partners have blown out their knees early this season and 2 have moved to Fernie and one has moved to Whistler so sadly I'm out of decent riders to hang with for the season. I still get out at least once a week with my 2 kids (4 and 6) and my wife and some friends that go only a few times a year. I'm always looking for new riders to go up with that can keep up with me or go faster, bigger and push ourselves to the limit.
I still don't know too many tricks considering what's out there. I can spin front and back 3's off almost any jump, back 5's are not a problem and if there's a big jump with a powder landing, I'll just huck myself into a mad spin and hope for the best. Rails aren't much of a problem for me but I'm not too fond of them. I can also huck a nice backflip. I'd like to learn more tricks this year and hopefully enter a few comp's.
I ride an 08 Burton Custom 162 but am not the biggest fan of it. I've always had freeride boards and prefer the feel of them more.
That's about enough BS I can talk about myself for the day. See you guys and girls around.

Al

hello AL....

i think most people in here are more recreational than semi-pro sideways sliders, (well.... i know i am) but we all nevertheless share a passion and i am sure given the chance, more than a few would meet up and put down some lines with you (again, speaking for myself).

I have been to vancouver, whistler, fernie and big white and enjoyed myself to the extent that i am moving out there. what's langley like? big houses? lots of well paying jobs? cheap beer? fast cars? etc....

enjoy the forums

Langley's not so bad. Housing prices are relatively cheap compare to the rest of the lower mainland. It's a hell of a lot better than Surrey and Abbotsford if you're thinking of moving south of the Fraser. There are still lots of farms around but urban sprawl is taking over West Langley
