Hey guys. I've been "snowboarding" since I was like.. 6, but I only actually started snowboarding last year. I used to ride those plastic ones from target. I guess it helped though, because I'm goofy, but they only come regular and I couldn't switch it because I didn't know how. So I'm not too bad at switch. :]
I started in 92'. Live in Connecticut and go 20+ times a year. I go to Mount Snow, Stratton, Sunapee, Bromley, Killington, and Okemo often. I ride a Burton Floater 163 that really needs to be replaced. Use Burton Co2 Bindings and I forget what boot but its decent. I'm 36 years old.
I am truly excited to learn, share and participate in forum where it's all about the ride...on a snowboard that is. Started getting into riding boards in 1997 as wakeboards were up and coming. In 2001 I became a Team Rider for Cabrinha Kiteboarding, and just made it a mission to get on anything with a tip & a tail, and a heelside & toeside. So mainly kiteboards, wakeboards, and snowboards, with experimentation and basic riding of skateboards, surfboards and SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding). Just last month learned for the first time how to drop in a bowl on a skateboard...gotta pay your dues on that one, but well worth the experience and cross training.
While I have been very active in kite and wake forums, I have committed to participating in forum in the other boardsports so I can learn more, and maybe even share some helpful advice. A big part of the motivation is to learn more so we can continue to tweak a new website I have been working on for over a year. It is somewhat a combination of Autotrader and Craigslist, only dedicated to boardsports. So it's a free site to buy and sell new and used gear. We have it set up with excellent tips that have to do with making good gear choices and understanding what the terms all mean. We are working hard to spread the word. It's called United Boardsports.
Hi all. Been boarding off and on for about 15 years now. Started in college. Had a bad motorcycle accident, and got back into it hard last season. Actually i switched careers.

Hi All, I'm 25, SLC native, SLC resident. Home mountain is Brighton. Started shreddin about 8 years ago, but didn't really start until about 4 years ago, when I could actually afford the passes and right gear instead of riding icy golf courses in jeans and sorels. Main focus is just to shred. I don't have an agenda on the mountain, just to have fun and enjoy the mountains.
