Hey everybody my names Mike I am 20 years old and am from Indiana/Illinois. I can't say I have been snowboarding for any amount of time its been pretty on and off since around 5th grade and I havn't gone more than twice a year really so I am basically new to the sport.

I am hoping to get into the sport soon and am planning on getting myself some gear very soon for a day trip and then also a spring break trip.

Looking forward to talking with you all!

Hi from the UK. My name's Simon, my folks first put me on skis at the age of 3, first time snowboarding was on a Rossignol hard boot setup when i was 12 (16 years ago!) and i haven't looked back.

Manage to get a couple of week in per year, I'm a pretty solid all mountain rider, looking to work on my spins and buttering as much as possible. Currently riding an 07/08 Custom, Salomon Pledge and brand spanking Rome 390 bosses which i can't wait to use in anger!

Seems there's a wealth of knowledge on here, look forward to chatting with you.

Hello people!

My name is Matthew, 26years old. I live in Oregon, not too close to the mountains yet, but not too far away to make a round trip in a day to Hood. My home town mountain is in Flagstaff Arizona; AZ Snowbowl where I grew up riding most of my life, and worked for a pass for a few seasons.

I've been riding since age 7 skiing prior to that. Started out ona burton Hoogar Boogar with hard boots. My favorite type of riding is powder lines, tree riding, backcountry, pillows. Flying strait down grooms with out turning, tucking for speed, and watching the ground disapear only to meet a smooth landing. I like a good transition here and there, but i've two knee surgeries. Just now realizing I'm healed enough to really get back to riding. Still taking it easy on jumps.

Here for some advice... To wear or to not wear a knee brace for snowboarding. Its been about 6+ years since my last surgery. I Mtn bike, skateboard just fine with no brace, have been using a Townsend brace for a while now for snowboarding only. I recently got a new Orthopedic Dr, and was given the green light to ride with out the brace, but I don't know about that. Seems sketchy to me. Looking for second opinions.

Been up once this year, had an awesome time. I've got a fever and there's only one way to cool it...

Hey everyone, my names Amber and I just started snowboarding not too long ago. I just came back from a snowboarding trip in Southern California, and fell inlove with it. I joined here to talk to other snowboarders and hopefully learn some tips about riding and the gear also. I was looking for tips on how to ride switch and came across this web forum. Glad I found it!

Hey everyone, My name's Mike and on my first snowboarding trip I managed to catch an edge and fall, braking my wrist. On a bunny hill of all things. I was at Ski Round Top here in PA which seems to be a decent place but not great from what I've read. Enough of me and my misfortunes, though.
