I am Andreas aka Andrewj. I was born in July 24th, 1975. I started snowboarding last year! Yes this is late, but better late than never.
I learned on a 162 cm board that forced me to sit down very often
. This was a real crappy board I think. It took me a week to master riding the board without any unwanted stunts.
After that I found a Rossignol MINI. Saw this board at the time I rode the long monster I mentioned above. The guy that sold me the Mini told me that my weight (around 93 kg) and my height (185 cm) will force me to avoid deep pewder as I might not get enough speed and uplift. I love this small deck as it is much more agile and easier to handle than the long one I rode before.
Used it for ten days and had sooo much fun.
For the next season I want to buy a longer board to enjoy some powder. Yes I tried it with the Mini and experineces everything the guy promised me (TITANIC!!!).
I want to find as much information here as possible, because I am far away from being an expert. I wanna finde out what would be a good all mountain board for me and how long it has to be to keep me on top of the snow!
When I am not riding the snow I train with Kettlebells and I am a martial arts instructor. I am also thinking about Kitesurfing.
