Default New member, old rider.

Hi. New guy to the forum. Been boarding since 89. First board was a weird plexiglass (or whatever they make plastic cutting boards out of) home brew thing that you'd screw washers into the edge of for an edge (yikes). Then my first real board was a sims 1/2 pipe. Then a Morrow spoon. Then I took a 10 year hiatus before riding again two years ago. I've got a NS premier 161, Ride SPI bindings and pair of Salomon F22s which are too bloody small for me. I just replaced the boots with a pair of Malamutes that I'm VERY excited to get.

Welcome to the forum. Got back into snowboarding 5 years ago after a 12 year hiatus. Cannot believe how far technology has come!! Wish I still had my old Sims half-pipe, would have made great wall art.

i wish i had ANY of my old boards. Especially that weird plastic one. that might very well be worth money now as a relic. And jeebus are you right about the technology update! the first day on my new board i was like "HOLEE $hit, this is easier!" I also found myself riding fakey for the first time ever by the end of the first day. No that this old dog is doing too many new tricks but it was definitely less intimidating to try on the new equipment. Thanks for the welcome.
