Hello everyone, I am Sam, I'm 21, I live in Calgary AB, and I've been riding for about 8 years.

I like to ride park, and all-mountain type snowboarding, but I try not to limit myself. Just picked up a burton custom and I have been getting more and more comfortable with high speeds.

I consider myself to be a fairly decent rider, I can comfortably do 360's in the park on Large size jumps, spin in/out of rails, etc. As for riding the mountain I haven't backed away from a run yet! (I do however scare myself from time to time) I enjoy medium sized cliffs/drops and natural features.

This guy sucks. Don't believe a word he says...

No seriously, this is my riding buddy from work, he's the reason I'm pushing it harder in the park this year. Pisses me off that he can just huck cool tricks off everything!

Welcome to the forum!

I usually only went about once or twice a year, but I finally just got a board so I can stop renting and go more frequently.
I live in Mississauga now but I spent a good amount of my life in Brampton and I was born and raised in Toronto.

I'd say that I'm a decent rider, and favor speed over tricks but I'm trying to get into the terrain park.
I just want to progress as quickly as possible now.

Also, I'm riding a 2012/13 GNU Street Series if anyone cares.

Anyways, thought I would just post here and say hi
Sup Kelley,
I'm in Brampton as well, (Bramalea Woods, by the City Center)
Welcome!!

Hello, my names Matt I'm from buffalo ny and I've snowboarded once. I'm more into downhill/freerideing longboarding but I did get to snowboard for the first time about 1 week ago and I picked it up quickly and enjoyed it greatly. I look forward to learning more about snowboarding and buying my first board.

Default Antelope Valley - Mtn High

Just wanted to say to a great website. I used it a lot when purchasing my new equipment and improving my riding skills

Allen
Antelope Valley Ca, Mtn High is my main mountain
34 years of age been riding since I was 18.

I have been riding this airwalk 155 POS since my early 20s cause that was all I could afford. Rode my friends NS Proto CT at the start of this season and couldn't believe the difference and now I regret not buying a new board earlier.

Currently GNU PP 159 w/Rome 390s. Absolutely love it!

Thanks again for all tips. My current agenda is to really work on buttering and to become very consistent and confident in straight airs.

Default Hello from the UK!

Hi everyone,

At 40 years old, I am totally new to bite this forum and to snowboarding!
I play ice hockey but I've only been boarding 5 times at my local indoor slope with a massive total of 8hrs on the snow..... I love it!!!!

I think I'm getting loads better every time I go out but I am too keen to "run before I can walk"!!!
By this, I mean trying out small jumps and stuff before mastering the basic technique... I know, I need to get hold of that!!!!

Anyway, that's where I'm at and I am sure I'll land those jumps, ride switch and perform butter tricks soon enough...

"EDIT"

My set up is a Signal Omni Wavelength, Union Force Bindings and Northwave Freedom boots.



Bye for now!!!

Heyo~
I'm from Vancouver, BC and started boarding literally a month ago.
Riding Endeavour Diamond '12 with Union Flite Bindings.
Now I'm seriously addicted and can't stay away from the mountains more than a week at a time.
Getting comfortable riding down steeper blues and tried my first jumps yesterday

These forums are awesome! Been learning a lot and getting lots of great tips

Hiya,

Have been lurking on this thread for awhile (mainly to try and find out how to get my damn cinch bindings to work) and decided to join up.

Originally from Australia where whenever we see ice....we grab it and stick it in our drink!

To my surprise I married a Canadian and am now trying to learn to skate and snowboard.

Ow!

I ride a 2012 bataleon 'jam'

Have K2 cinch cts bindings

And kz ryker boa boots.

Live around vancouver and have been to cypress, whistler and silverstar this winter.

Heading out to silverstar this weekend for a week.

I think I'll get in about 25-30 days this season.

I had some time off when my knee went 'pop' after crashing into a clump of trees whilst avoiding some kids on skis having a lesson. Took about 4-5 weeks to get everything right again.

Anyway - party on!

What's up everyone,

I'm Sam and I'm 20 year old college student. Started snowboarding 3 months ago and ever since I've been addicted. I'm actually not as bad many people would think. I've been skating for 4-5 years so that definitely helped! especially at snowboarding parks.

Looking forward to keep up with all the threads and interesting posts on this forum! Cheers

- Sam
