Default Hello from Munich

Hey just joined up and wanted to introduce myself and hopefully start getting some advice!

30 yr old Aussie living in Munich, been riding for 5 years. 158cm Rome Solution (I love this board!). Still trying to get my technique on and off-piste right before heading into the park, but would ultimately love to end up as an all-mountain freestyler or something. (Used to live in Japan - they have some incredible freestylers there - spinning out flatland tricks and stuff all over the place! A lot tamer here in Europe!). Love finding the natural hits just off the pistes and such but all I seem to be able to do are lame straight airs - can't even grab!

Anyway, not sure how to really progress. Hoping to get some advice here. Even thinking about quitting work one day and doing a whole season somewhere!

Hi everyone! I'm Susan, from the Washington DC/Northern VA area. I've been lurking for a few months and am outing myself to say hello. I just started riding, and I think I'm in love. I can't stop thinking about it! I learned a few weeks ago on a visit to CO (took a lesson for a few hours), and I've been once here in the DC area so far. I have a few more local trips planned for this season if the weather here will cooperate at all. I'm also a photographer, so I'll be looking into getting into the photo aspect of snowboarding once I'm confident enough that I can ride with my beloved camera gear in tow without smashing it to pieces.

I work a regular day job, so thanks for providing me with a way to live and breathe snowboarding for the days that I can't actually be out on the slopes!

Hey...I'm a beginner living in Ottawa. Just got out on my board for the first time ever this past weekend. I made the trip to Tremblant with some friends and I am hooked already. At 22 years old, it's been a long time coming. I've wanted to snowboard for more than 10 years (and I've actually owned my current gear for 4 years), but circumstances were such that I just never had the opportunity to learn. I'm elated now that I'm on my board, and I'm really looking forward to a full weekend of boarding (4 days) at Tremblant starting this Friday.

I've browsed these boards periodically, and now that I've begun riding I figured I might as well join the discussion.

Same boat as a lot of people, been browsing the forums here for a bit but just starting to post now. Just started to snowboard and really getting into it so I'm going through the process of trying to get my equipment and the time to get out there and really hit it. I'm enjoying everything these forums have to offer and appreciate all the information and help that is provided.

Hey, I'm Andrew and I'm from Maine. I went out about a half dozen times 7 years ago. I finally have the finances to start up again. Went out and bought all new gear and picked up a midweek season pass to Sunday River. Got myself a Burton 154 White Collection Standard, a set of simple Burton Freestyle bindings and a sweet pair of Rampants for my boots.

Hey from Upstate NY! I've been off snowboarding for 7 years, but I am excited to get back out on the mountain.
I started this season with this setup - 160 W Burton Bullet, Burton Cartels and Burton Black Motos. I didn't like anything but the bindings.

I have sold all that and now I have a Lib Tech Skunk Ape 157W, Union Force Acid Green bindings and White Nike Zoom Force 1's. The setup I should have started with in the first place.
