Minneapolis, MN

Hi, there.
I just started last season and haven't been out much this year.
Would love to find some other girls to ride with.
I can ride most intermediates without breaking my neck.
Let me know.
Thanks!

Last year was my first year on the board.
But I skatedboarded and surfed,
so it wasn't all that hard to get going.
Moved from Houston about a year and a half ago.
Just getting into snowboarding.

Crap.
Why is it so hard to find other girls to ride with.
Because I'm new in town, I don't have many friends.
All my co-workers are married and have kids.
It's not easy to find friends who have common interests...

Haha yeah whenever I go out it seems like all the girls on the hill are like 12. I know a couple girls that ride, my gf, and two girls from work. One of which just moved to New Zealand and the other who i guess wasn't as good as i thought and hurt her knee trying to learn to ride the other day.

I've only gone out 9 times last year.
Took a lesson at my first visit then another private one on my third visit.
During private lesson, my instructor asked me if there was anything I wanted to learn that day.
I had this evil smile on my face and answered "Jump".
So we jumped.
First try went well.
I jumped a baby one and landed fine.
Then I got carried away tried double.
On my second jump, I carried way too much speed and air for my skill level.
I landed over my rib cage and spread a yard sale.
I got myself a helmet and mouth guard right after.
I haven't jumped ever since.

Haha only nine times. That sounds pretty solid to me.
I kinda did the same thing with jumps. but the best thing to do is find small ones and start working your way back up.
have you just been going to the slopes by yourself?

I went once with my ex boyfriend who was riding ski.
We end up fighting on top of the hill, I threw my board to "show" how angry I was,
that thing started sliding down... threw a big comedy...

Another time I went with couple other girls who were total beginners.
That wasn't so much fun since I had to hang out at bunny hill most the time.

Other than these two times, I rode alone.
I just wanna find another girl or two who are about the same skill level to goof around.
