noob girl from Pittsburgh PA area

What up guys???

the name's Anda ... I live near Pitt Pa ...

I started snowboarding last year so Im def a noob ... but I'm not bad at all, I can ride and hold my own and keep up with all my friends that are good with no troubles, without hitting the park like they do.

I learned how to ride on a board way too big for me that my friend gave me last year ... but I just got my first toy a few days ago and I can't wait to hit the slopes.


I did a lot of research before buying a board and all that stuff so I can say I'm pretty well informed for a rookie ...

this is my baby, I really wanted a v-rocker and I think this was a good choice for me <3








since I don't hit the park yet... I shouldn't worry about detuning it right?
they also told me that the board is already waxed, but a lot of ppl said that you should wax it before you take it out for the first time...

what bindings do you guys recommend for this board? I was looking at the 2010 burton lexa, would that be a good idea? they're pretty light and not too hard not too soft.


if anybody near Pit wants to pair up for some snowboard trips hit me up, Im always down to go wherever. (I'm in Europe for another 2 weeks but after that I'll be down)

hey anda, im always going to 7 springs PA for some riding. Not sure when the next trip will be up there but let me know maybe the guys and i will make a trip sooner than later. Those binding should be good for you. I dont have any personal experience with them but the review looks good. O and on the waxing, i always wax my board even when they are new.

You should have you nose and tail edges de-tuned, that will help to not catch a edge. You can ride with it not detuned, personally it rides easier with detuned edges.

Question: Why buy a rocker board if you're not doing park? You're certainly not going to see enough powder around here to worry about any increase in float.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

snowOX - i will hit u up with a PM with my phone number when I get back to the states.

Phoenix: I wanna do park... and I got it now so I dont have to buy another board as I learn, because Im a very fast learner and I dont see the point in buying a board now then getting another one so soon. I also know this board does really good on ice, and last year I had some bad experiences with ice

I'm on the far side from Pitt, but let me know when you're going and we can meet up. Not many snowboarders around here.

Im scared to detune it myself, Im gonna try it out without detuning it first and see how it goes.

question: do nose and tail protectors affect your riding? I mean it would seem so to me ... pls somebody clear this out for me cuz I would like to put some on m board to protect it, but only if they dont affect the riding.

phenix I will for sure. I'll PM you too when I get back to the US.

Yes, don't put them on. They are not worth it they could set your weight off center, and that's never worth it..
