Canadian Living in Japan
I'm from Canada (Halifax) but I've been living in Japan for the last year and a bit. I started snowboarding last January and became obsessed. Never thought I would like it because I have always hated skiing.
I also wakeboard in Canada.
I'm a giant. 6'2" tall and weighing in at anywhere between 195-200 lbs. My feet are size 13 in US/CDN size.
I bought a '04 Rossignol Premier 163 with sick Samurai graphics before I knew that I should be riding a wide board. This thing has like a 24.something waist. I have horrible toe overhang.
Looking at buying the Bataleon Goliath 161W. I feel like I've read a LOT about this board on this forum so I think it's right for me. I REALLY want to try this TBT. Not very good at park or pipe. I just like going down the mountain and jumping little jumps, ollies, and simple ollie 180's (not really sure what to call that).
Anyway, nice to meet you.
p.s. Japan is insanely awesome for snowboarding! The most powdery fresh snow you can find.
