Yo.

37 year old Swede, picked up my first board back in '92, and rode Sims boards up to late 90's - got a Palmer board which I hated, bought a house...stopped riding more or less...got a new Forum board a few years ago, did a few days, got really hooked last winter, broke my wrist when a slalom-muppet thought it was a good idea to cross the slope behind a blind crest - and that was it for last season.

This season it's ON. Done 5 days already, and it's somewhat of a personal record (our proper season hasn't begun yet).



Still loving that old Forum JP walker 163 though, only treated myself a pair of fresh boots, pants and a new jacket, but it's hard not to look at the new rocker-stuff.

/J

Welcome!

Bucks County, eh? I'm there often for work (mostly lower Bucks). It's a beautiful area of PA.

Keep an eye on the NE Regional Forum for meet ups in the area.

And good luck with your knee!

Yeah even the Raptor pops like crazy. Didnt expect to get so much from a freeride board. Takes a little extra to get her off the ground but when you do it flies!

WRX eh? Another fellow Impreza owner? The scoob is what took me away from snowboards more or less between 2000-2008 (my turbo ended up with a straight cut dogbox, ethanol conversion, autronic, antilag, etc, etc). Still got yours?
