Hi all! New here, new to snowboarding in general. I started back in 2006, but took a digger the second day out and broke two bones in my arm...sufficed to say, it's taken me awhile to get back on the board. I haven't been in a few years. My "first" winter is sport is Falconry, and I used to spend all my days/weekends out with the hawks or falcons. I recently had a baby, so I didn't have enough time to devote to the hunting sport, but still wanted to maintain my ties with the outdoors. I started again last weekend, went for 4 days, picking it up okay again. I'll be getting out several more times this season, so I hope I can progress well!

Welcome!

Wow...Falconry?! That's interesting. Birds of prey are pretty spectacular creatures.

Thumbs up Hi

Hello all,

That's my first post (although I've been a silent reader for a couple of months)... Lots of great people and info running around these forums.

I'm living in Israel, riding for 5 years (5-6 days per season in Europe, trying to go to a different resort every year).
Learned to ride by myself except for the first day where I had a private lesson of about 40 minutes, so I guess I'm somewhat of an intermediate rider.

Starting this season I'm hoping to ride at least 2 weeks each season, although it's hard to do it here - you have to travel overseas to see some snow...
Hopefully it'll work out for me, but anyways - great to be here!

Cheers,
Amir

New member here, alot of good info. i'm getting back into snowboarding after 8 years even though im only 27. i snowboarded all through out high school and some of college. i've already gone 3 times this season even though its been pretty warm around here. I couldn't believe that i picked it right back up with no problems.

my new board and bindings should be here this week and i can't wait to really get things going again.

I fully agree! I'll get back into it some day, it's just a huge time commitment..just not super feasible with a new baby to go out hunting everyday for several hours.

Congrats on the new addition!

One of the highlights of my summer was seeing a Red-Tailed Hawk tail feather when I was out riding a horse one day haha. Seriously, I was so stoked to see it! There are some resident hawks where I was riding and I've tried for years to scope out the areas for closer looks of them. This one was in an entirely different area than where I had seen the hawks. However. I've seen rabbits over there plenty of times. I suppose the hawks did, too...

Well, thanks so much! My husband can't wait to start teaching her how to ride...I don't think he listens to me that 7 months old is a tad young. We'll tackle the whole walking thing first. ha!

Red tails are super cool. I've only flown one out of the 7 birds that I've had over the years, but he was my favorite. I had to release him once I was huge and pregnant, as detangling myself from barbed wire fences was becoming a circus act.

Haha that's awesome about your husband and daughter.

Wow...that does sound interesting! I didn't know they're able to be released, just like that. They seem so spectacular in so many ways.
