New member, East Tn...

Hi all,
Name's Josh....Just started riding this year, but so far, I've been 15+ times (I live pretty close to Sugar Mt.) I ride with guys that have been boarding since the late 90's, and they are all telling me that I was born to do this...... My first board was a used Zuma SK 155, that I got in trade with a friend, but I never even rode it before I went and bought an LTD Fury 151 (don't know what possessed me to do that). I rode the LTD for a few trips, and recently upgraded to an '09 Burton Blunt(NIB) with Burton Custom Bindings. Going to Snowshoe the last weekend of Feb. so Hit me up if you're going to be there too!!!
I hope to learn some things from this forum, and hopefully up my game a little!!! See ya out there!!

Hi, Im Alex and live in Sumner Washington. My first time boarding was Feb 2nd, i went to Mt Hood Meadows for a 3 day trip (they have a 3 day lift, rental and lesson package for 149$). I absolutely loved it, and as soon as i got back home i was checking out what would be a good setup for me. I went to a local snowboard and ski shop (owned and operated by the same person, a great guy with a ton of knowledge) and he set me up with a sweet deal on a nice set up. My stick is a Nidecker The Legacy with Flow The 5 bindings and Flow Rival BOA boots.

hi there

my name is mark, have boarded before but not as much this season even though the conditions weren't that good. just snowboarded for the fun of it. Got addicted after my 2nd day of snowboarding and finally bought my own beginner snowboarding set which just cost under 300 for everything (board,bindings,boots) from zumiez. The season is not over and now I'm going down black diamond trails which is big improvement for me. Hopefully next season i learn how to do parks and get a better board.

Hi everyone. I'm Adam from Charlotte and I just discovered snowboarding at 30 years old. I've been 3 times in about 6 weeks and I can't get enough of it. I'm pretty athletic and looking forward to learning more about boarding from the experts here.

Name's Cycle4Fun. When not boarding I'm waiting for the damn trails to dry so I can mountain bike. Spring (February this "winter"?) is the worst.

After 10 years of skiing, I decided to learn to snowboard at our local hill in Akron, OH. It would give me something to do this winter. After two lessons and two fun days I went out and bought equipment after doing some searching. I ended up with good comfy boots, gnu mutant bindings and a Rossi Trickstick to learn on. I spent money on the boots and bindings with a good deal on the board. The Gnu's were a necessity so that my expert skier fiance wouldn't have to wait for me on the hill.

It's been a blast learning snowboarding and I feel like I've progressed to the beginnings of the intermediate level. Linking turns is no problem. I'm starting to work on switch and am "scarving" my turns. I can't quiet nail a consistent carve yet. The black runs at Holiday Valley, NY are rideable even in the very icy conditions we've had this year. I'm not interested in the park and spend all of my time cruising the runs.

I'm looking forward to a day at Mont Ste-Marie in Quebec followed by 4 days in Killington, Vt to end my season.
