New Boarder... from FL

Hey fellow snowboard enthusiasts.
Im Ryan from Florida and go to school in NY. Ive been snowboarding only a handful of times and decided that I needed my own board (mainly because rentals sucked). I got my first board last weekend and gave my baby a test run at the slopes. To be honest shes amazing. This weekend I got through a few ollies on/off features and attempted a 180 (failed miserably at the latter). As a new member to the snowboarding community, I would love any advice. I just ordered my helmet after falling a few times and injuring my knee (not too serious). Ive been looking on Youtube and other video sites to help my boarding and tricks. I mainly want to have fun. Having that snow underneath you is, to be honest, fucking amazing. I also want to be safe too. The online stuff has been great. Any advice for this newbie would be very welcomed. Thank you.

-Ryan
PS. I need a name for my new baby girl (my board)
Its a Burton Joystick with Cartel Bindings.

Welcome to the forum.

Seems like you're in the right track...what part of FL are you from? My ex lives in Jacksonville.

November needs to hurry up and come
