Welcome to the forum James (and the other recent posters here). It's only a few months before us Southern Hemisphere snowboarders get to have our go.

Where do you normally ride?

First time boarder, lifetime addict.

What's up, 28 yoa dude from Western KY. Just got back from Paoli Peaks in Paoli, IN and I am now in love.

Your board selection guide is amazing. Thank you very much.

Hope to get my own equipment and a season pass up there. It's the closest park to me and its 3 hours away but well worth the drive. Can't wait to read all the info on this site.

New Boarder

Hey every1

I am relatively new to boarding (well properly anyway) first learnt in NZ about 12 years ago but completely forgot everything so started up again a few months ago - cant get enough of it!!!

Tho i think my knees and wrists would have something to say about it lol

Happy boarding everyone

Whats up guys. My name is Dan, I'm 20. Just started snowboarding like 3 weeks ago. Went up to the mountain only twice though. I have been skateboarding for about 7 years so the transition into snowboarding wasn't so hard.

Right now I'm using my friends Skate Banana with some ride bindings. I hope to get my own board next year. Looks like snowboarding is definitely going to break the bank...
I plan on getting a roof rack for my 2004 STi too, since my board doesn't fit in my car. Always thought Subarus looked good with roof racks. Now I have an excuse to get one. haha.

Hey folks. Just started snowboarding this season. I'm an Australian living in Japan.

We took a trip up to Niseko for about a week, and I spent last weekend in Gunma. I'm completely addicted to the sport and it's all I can think about. Hopefully I'll get my own gear this year.

Hello all.

I'm from the DC area. Just went snowboarding again for the first time in about 6 years last week. Mostly stayed on the bunny hills back then, but am now looking to expand my horizons to bigger and better hills! I've lurked a little around here the past few days while I've been researching boards and it seems like a nice place.

Cheers.
