What's up gang,

My name is Andy, 31 years old, and live in South Carolina. Needless to say, I don't see much snow. I started skiing at the age of 5, switched to snowboarding at 18 and have been hooked since. (Average 3 trips to a mountain a year) First board was a mongoose 151 and later moved to an evol 164 with flow bindings. Both cheap boards and prob never heard of em anyway. Just recently bought a 2013 k2 raygun 164w, rome mob boss bindings, and dc judge boots. Board rides like a dream!! I found the site while looking at boards and liked what I seen. Catch you around!

Hi I'm new to the forum.

I've been boarding for about 18 years - mostly in the Tahoe and Salt Lake areas with one trip a year to someplace new.

I'm mainly a freerider, head up for storms looking for fresh powder in the trees.

I've been on a never summer T5 for the past 7 years, and just bought a Raptor.

Hi all

I'm 32 from Norway and been snowboarding since about '96 so about 17 years. I'v just been doing freeride as i broke by back after mye first couple of years snowboarding back in '98, so i layed of the jumping part. I'v just been riding chamber boards and never tried rocker boards or anything beetween. So it's mosly to get some more insight in different gears i'm joining the forum. My latest board for the last 5 years been a 160 F2 Real with Drake Czar bindings and been using DC Boods with air pump system for the last 12 years before buying Burton Ruler boots this season as the air system starting to fail on me.
I also just bought a Burton Custom X board to replace my current F2 to see it's better or not. But havn't got the the chance to test it yet

Question Too Old?

Hello everyone, my name is Jeff and I am a 43 year old who will be learning to snowboard starting this fall/winter, so I have to ask--am I too damn old to be doing this? I mean, its not gonna stop me from learning, because I'm absolutely determined to do this, but I just wanted to put that out there and see what the thoughts were on this. Thanks everyone!

Hiya Jeff! Of course you're not too old to learn, plenty of people on these forums started later than that... and I still maintain that you're not old until you start acting old.

Personal recommendation is get impact shorts - you'll fall on your ass a lot as you learn (and progress) and it'll save you a lot of pain. And wear a helmet, I whacked the back of my head pretty hard a few times and was glad I had one. Additional protection is optional, I wear knee pads and wristguards as well, and I'm still in my 20's, lol.

I'm 15. I have lived in Dallas, Texas my whole life. Hate it so much. I've been snowboarding for 5 years. Can't wait to be done with High School and move up North for College.

I am 29 years old and have caught the bug.
I live in Dawson Creek, BC (near the Rocky Mountains) so naturally we have an awesome hill not too far away.

Grew up in Newfoundland near Marble Mountain and skiied a few times as a kid. My friends invited me snowboarding this year and I thought I'd give it a try. Turns out I love it.

Default Free Diver/Scuba Diver > Snowboarder

Hello All,

My name is Mark and recently move to Las Vegas. I've been around the ocean (scuba diving/free diving ) all my life and wanted to snowboard ever since. I'm 26 and this 2012/2013 is was my first season. I'm a fast learner and now I'm able to curve and do small jumps. I first learned in Brian head thinking its like skateboarding which was also my sport for 5 Years but not close. And yes I am hooked, so hooked I'm running Brian head till its dirt ha!!! So far I visited Brian head, mt Charlestown and Keystone.
