What Up from NC!

Hey, I'm from NC and some friends just got me into snowboarding. I got a 153 08 wide forum recon (the black and orange one) and went out a few days ago for my first time. I am not sure if it was the years of me skateboarding or what, but when I started talking to other long time snowboarders on the slope, and they figured out it was my first day, they flip out, lol. Any ways, had a blast and can't wait to go again. Kinda disappointed I got into it so late into the season though.

Yeah, I live about 25 miles from Charlotte as well. So hit me up and maybe we will be up at the same time and can hit a few runs together.

lol, not trying to be a dousch, but thats from mt. fuji when I was in Japan, lol. I realized the quality is kinda bad, but thanks, haha.

but yea, I am actually from a small town called Eden, right on the Virgina border, about 45 min. north of Greensboro, but I basically live in Charlotte I guess now, because I go to UNCC (live on campus).

I think my friends (they have all been snowboarding for a few years, so im the newbie of the group) and I are going to hit up the twighlight session at app this friday since we don't have any classes fridays and it will be cheaper, and we also get a student discount, so we can get that for like $25 or around that. Anyways, we will probably try to go as much as possible, maybe almost every friday until season is over with.

haha, ok i see now. lol, sorry. oh i went there over the summer with some friends. I love it there. Would love to become fluent in the language and live a few years over there, but so far all I have had to do is take two high school semesters of it, and go there for a week, but hey, thats more than most people can say, right?

ok man, thats cool. but yea, scz71, i should be up there almost every weekend. I'm going to app this weekend, which I hear can be intimidating as shit being a begginer, but thats exactly the way skateparks where back when I started skateboarding. lol, just gotta say, screw this, I don't care, and just snowboard.

no, you got it all wrong. app is nothing. sugar and beech have the highest vertical drop. app is just a big hill so you'll have nothing to worry about.
