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.

Welcome, and there are some other good retailers in Canada. A couple shops in Ontario will ship free across Canada and have good prices. You only pay the taxes for the province you're in.

Hey everyone,

I'm a 23 year old living in Raleigh, NC. I first started skiing when I was 8 or 9, then tried snowboarding for my first time around 11. I went back to skiing because it's hard to pick up snowboarding when you're going one day a year on a church trip. Now that I can go on my own I'm done with skiing, because fuck skiing right? Anyway, I took my first trip out to Tahoe this past March, and I don't think I ever want to ride the east coast again.

My buddy turned me on to Christy Mack, check her out, no explanation should be needed..

My name's Chris, 12/13 was my first season snowboarding. Like many here tried it once, caught the bug, wished I would've started sooner (I'm 34), and now I love winter instead of dread it. I've met some dudes 60+ years that snowboard so I figure I've got a good 40 years (at least) of shredding left in me.

I live in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul), and there seems to be enough ok places to ride. I started my first day barely being able to stand up on the board and since then have progressed to being able to do quick dynamic turns and hit intermediate boxes/rails/jumps, while paying close attention to my technique to prevent bad habits from forming (centered stance, no using arms etc.). My progress really started to accelerate around my 8-10th time out or so. I used to aggressive inline skate when I was in my teens and early 20's and have already been doing core/balance training for a while with a trainer so I think that might have helped. I've gone about 33 times this year w/no pass. I plan on getting a pass to a place called Afton Alps here next season and want to get out 60+ times.

After about my 5th time I got sick of $hitty rental equipment and decided I would board enough my 1st season to make purchasing a set-up a worthy investment and am glad I did. After some research I opted for a GNU Carbon Credit 156, Burton Cobra Shark bindings, and Burton Moto boots.

I haven't been out west yet, the closest I've been to riding on a mountain is at the Lutsen Mountains in Lutsen, MN. Nothing like the mountains out west I'm sure but still pretty decent for the Midwest.

I have to credit much of what I learned my first season to posts on this site (especially from Snowwolf) and hope I will be able to contribute as well.
