Erm, I'm 13 going on 14

I'm adopted asian girl from China

I live in the 'Glove State'

I first tried snowboarding in the 3rd grade (I was about 8-9 years old) and I had been using a pretty crappy cheap plastic board just to play around with...but I kept snowboarding since then and by 10 years old I could (sorta) Heel Slide and do Switch Riding somewhat sloppily

I havent actually done a lot of snowboarding in the past couple years but I'm picking it up again more seriously for this season

I have never owned an actual snowboard and have managed to survive on a plastic cheap one for years....

I don't know much about snowboarding to be honest

Warm welcome to a new young female member!
Hey, I don't know much about it neither, but that's not necessary to be stoked. You'll learn a lot in this forum. Use the search function first and read the stickies. And if you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask them. Add your age so the creepy guys stay tame . There's a lot of knowledg here and ppl are willing to share and help. (Don't be shyed away by the sometimes harsh tone of certain members in certain threads - if you read the entire thread you'll recognize the pattern on how they were provoked to such answers.)
Hope, you'll soon get the opportunity to ride a 'real' board.

Hey guys!

I'm 26 and I live in Colorado. My first time on a snowboard was a little over 10 years ago but I only consider myself to have been really riding for 7 years. I love everything about the sport and the culture and I just love snow. Couch surfing and resort town living are still on my bucket list as I am still very immature for my age and the idea of settling down into structured suburban servitude has never appealed to me. I grew up riding with my best friend who is a skier and I'm a better rider for it. Neither one of us wanted to ever say "I can't do that on skis/a board" so we both pushed each other a lot.

One of my favorite places to shred and where I'll be spending a lot of time this winter is Monarch mountain! It's not as well known as a lot of the i70 corridor resorts but the snow is delicious and you don't have to drive through i70! (Which SUX especially now what is that construction nonsense ARG!)

Please if anyone is interested and likes to shred monarch hit me up sometime!!

Woohoo!

haha yeah and I was trolling the forums without an account for probably 2 years before that! I just like to take things at my own pace I'd be lying if I said I hadn't seen this thread before but it's pretty old so sometimes it gets buried until someone brings it back up. Due to extra boredom I've been posting more lately where before I only had a few random gear inquiries. The timing seemed right lol

Im 14, and live in Iowa. We have 2 resorts, and 2 parks. Sleepy Hollow is my place. Not the greatest place to snowboard but you get what you can.
