Hi all,
I live in Texas (not much snow down here ), but my passion is snowboarding. I've been riding whenever I can for the last few years now, can't wait to go to Crested Butte and Monarch in January with my crew!

Hi all,

My Name is Kyle, I have recently finished university where I didn't get to shred hardly at all (only on reading week) so I look forward to making some kind of a comeback this year and throw down some new tricks. I'll be upgrading my gear for this season and teaching snowboard lessons on weekends at my local hill (for the free membership). I have snowboarded for the past 12 seasons (this one will make it 13). Hope to see you guys around this forum, I used to be a different one in the past (it was good too) but it seems to have disappeared.

Hi all,
I'm Brian. I'm 34 years old and grew up in Rhode Island where I mostly did water-related sports (sailing, SCUBA, windsurfing, bit of surfing). Winter sailing used to keep me busy, but then I met my wife and moved to central Massachusetts which eliminated that. I started to dread the boredom of winter. Then last December my 9-year old son said he wanted to take snowboard lessons. I figured I might as well join him since it looked fun. We are both completely hooked.

We went at least once a week through last season, usually night at Wachusett (30 minutes from our house). We have season passes for this year and are jonesing for the start of the season. We plan to hit some bigger mountains on weekends when we can. The only other mountain we made it to last year was Crotched for Midnight Madness (until 3am!) I ride an older GNU Carbon High Beam 164, my son has a Head Transit Jr 128. We're both hoping to get better at all around riding and the park (the full extent of my current park experience is a 50/50 box grind ). I still need to learn to ride switch, which seems to have come totally naturally to my son.

We'll likely be at Wachusett most Friday nights (4-10p), so if anyone in the area wants meet up even just to say "hi", that's great. Also, the rumor is that Killington is opening in a week or two, so we might head there on a weekend soon after they open. Anyhow, it's great to see such an active online community!

Hey guys! My name is Case, I'm 23, and I live in the panhandle of Oklahoma, so its a decent 5-6 hour drive to anything worth boarding, that I know of. But my friends have been trying to get me to go the last couple of years, and it looks like I'll be able to go on my first trip this year. I'm stoked! I've subsequently been getting the basics together of base layer, jacket, pants, glvoes, goggles, helmet, crash pads and so on. Now I'm just stuck on deciding if I want to rent the first time, or possibly demo a board, since I'll probably have an easier time learning and more fun the 2nd and 3rd day of the trip if I have a decent board. And the idea of picking up a solid beginner board like a Sierra Crew/Reverse Crew has crossed my mind. I'm a fairly active person and love high octane activities. So I know this more than likely won't be a one time deal...

Anywho, I'm glad to be here with such an experienced and educated community, and I look forward to getting into this sport!

Default Hi

Hi there,

I am Hidde, just 15 years old and I'm from Holland.

I haven't snowboarded jet, tho I did do skiing one year. Since skiing is quite lame I decided to go snowboarding this winter. I'll be in Austria for a week in December. I decided to register here to pick up some info, and read about it a bit. I also have a stupid question: How long does it take before one can, on a decent way, go off the mountain? I'll take lessons, and blue slopes are fine enough for the first time. I've read different things, variating from just 1 day to 3 days, but I don't know wich source should be trustable. Thought you guys would know?

Anyway, I also do other sports, Football, Windsurfing and Tennis. Windsurfing is not that often tho, as I do not have my own gear jet(I took lessons last year and this year for a week(every day) with some mates in the holidays) tho feeling how boards react might be a bit usefull when snowboarding.

Apart from sports, I have other interests aswel... I produce my own music, using the computer, some software and a basic homestudio. Right now I am working on what may be my first release... I also would like to pick up DJ'ing, but it's expensive...

Well my introduction turned out way too long as usual. Hope to enjoy my stay here anyway.
