Newbie all around!!
 
I am from Northern Michigan, I like to be outside, so I thought I would like to try and snowboard this year, I had a board given to me at our company picnic this past weekend, It is a Mikes Hard lemonade board, not sure who makes it. But it is one step close to being able to get on and ride. I have never been on one before, to me it looks like a lot of fun. If there are any tips that any of you could give please do so. I like to talk about new stuff that I am getting into, just so that I am prepared a little when the time comes.

He man i was new to snowboarding last year. I skied since i was like 4 years old. I went out there and thought i would get it right away. Not the case!!! After a whole day of falling I decided to take lessons. It was the best decision i ever made. i was taught things that i would have never thought of myself. I am really good for only a year of shredding (If I say so myself).

Good Luck!!:)

Can you post some pics of the mike's hard lemonade board. I'm interested to see if it can be identified.

Kobanewbie 09-18-2012 06:44 AM

Yes I can do that post some pics, once I figure ou how to do so. Which is easier to post with a camera phone or using a camra?

I forgot to mention I am 34years old so I do want to take it easy and as precatious as possible, by wearing a helmet, and wrist guards. Anything else that can be thought of to help. Thank you for the suggestion on the classes, I will take that help and defanatley take classes, I was going to see, if I could find a friend or someone to help teach but having someone teach would be a lot more informative.

Posting pics is a huge bitch. Poutanen showed me how to do it. First you have to get a photobucket account and upload the pictures there. Cell phone works fine as a camera. Then scroll over the image and you should get this box called IMG code. Just copy and paste that shit into the body of your text and you're good to go. There's probably a better way to do it and I'd be happy to hear it.

I wonder if its the same Sims Patron I have at work. Some of these boards are novelty with no real structure to them not meant to be ridden - careful.

My buddy got a Miller Lite board a year or two ago from a local bar and he's ridden it a few times and got down the mountain just fine.

Helmet :thumbsup:. Wrist guards, meh.

Impact shorts with tailbone protection is a good idea, especially if you're riding icy conditions :thumbsup::thumbsup:.

Impact shorts and helmets will be there for you even when you're getting pretty good; when I try new types of rails or if it's icy that day I use my shorts just because I've broken my tail bone 2 times and fractued it once so they're definitely something to look into but try to buy local so you can try them on, not every short fits everyone the same way
