hello and welcome..
my name is Jonny i jumped on here 2 days ago.. i spend way to much work time on the internets but i'm getting paid right? its probably ok..
i live in Seattle, I like long walks on the beach, fluffy dogs and powder snow.. lots of powder snow.
been riding for ohh 10 or 20 yrs on 1 plank at least and now access all boarding via snowmobiles now with a killer fun crew from the northwest. we make tons of cheesy snow videos for fun and are always looking for more people to join the crew and contribute to fun making and adventuring.. hit me up for details or check out blog ling in the signature. we're trying to bring together a bunch of older dudes to start a viva la revolution! haha.. ok. well not really but we'd love to grow and get more people involved in old man backcountry snowy adventures.

this concludes my shameless internet whore'out

Hey all. I'm old, but love to ride. Haven't been riding near long enough, as I'm from Minnesota and wasted way too many winters playing hockey...I know, I know, I'm sorry.

Honestly this will be my 4th season riding and it is literally in my blood. Its all I think about... kinda sad really. Oh, c'mon I know you've all done it once or twice, you know driving in the car and gazing out at the landscape just imagining how you could shred all those hills, rails, parked cars...

Anyway glad to have found this forum, there seems to be many addicted boarders like myself here. Hopefully I can contribute to the greater good too.

Hey I'm 16 and I used to live in Germany near Austria and went snowboarding a little in elementary school but wasn't very good. I moved to Upstate NY this summer and now I'm ready to pick it back up and hit the slopes this winter!

Hi everyone.

My name is Max and Im from Sweden. I do all my boarding in Austria though, not enough snow or mountains here in the south.

Been riding for 4 years, last year was my first with own setup as opposed to rental. Only a cheap board and binding though, spent most of the money on boots (my feet are very sensitive). New gear is on the way though

Hey ya'll! I am a newbie here. I grew up wakeboarding in Tennessee but now that I live in Las Vegas I have decided to pick up snowboarding. How do you decide on a board size? I know how board sizes work in wakeboarding just not snowboarding. But anyways, name is Cory. 26 years old. Work for FedEx in Las vegas. Born n raised in TN. Also I am a grad student at UNLV. I've been snowboarding once and loved it

oh and I'm 6'4" and 290 lbs I know that will help me select a board size

Whats up im new to this forum. This will be my second season snowboarding, last season I rented a board or borrowed a friends board and bindings. Well I decided that this year I would buy new gear so I did, I bought a burton custom ics wide last years model got it for a good price. I also picked up some burton mission bindings and thirtytwo prospect boots to tie all together.

Im really excited about this year, altought im currently living in Washington state so I havn't been to any resorts here. I was living in salt lake city two years ago and I absolutely loved it out there. The canyons was my favorite resort.

What's up all? My name is Tim and I have been riding for 12 years now. Some years more than others. My kids are toddlers now, so they are of age to actually start taking lessons or shacking up for daycare, so hopefully this year I'll be riding a lot more. I am pretty new in the San Francisco Bay Area and trying to find some good spots fairly close by.
