Hi guys! My name is Jack, I'm 17, and I live in Utah. I started snowboarding last season, and I've only been twice, but I'm hooked.

I also love skateboarding, especially downhill.

I'm Dave, 44 years old from Northern California. Ski'd for 10 years and started snowboarding in 93' Haven't put skis on since. I mainly hit Kirkwood and Heavenly. Took a few years off to focus on bike racing, but put in 15 days last season and now I'm hooked again. Lots of great info on here. Thanks.

Hi, my name is Davor from Zagreb, Croatia. I've been snowboarding for two years, but I'm only beginner and still learning.

Hope I would learn more than I know

Default Short season

Hello all,
I am 46 yrs old and currently live in FAR Northern CA. I learned to ski in 1985 and loved it but was unable to go after that partly due to moving to Oklahoma where there are no mountains. Last year I moved back to CA and took my daughter to the local ski park to take snowboarding lessons. They informed me it was a two for one deal and that I could take lessons for free, yeah $0 so I went for it and boy am I glad. I went every single Sunday last season but our local park season is only from about mid Jan to Just before Easter. Most other parks are an over night trip or more away so ugh. Anyway, I love snowboarding and have been looking forward to going again every day since they closed the parks.

I enjoy taking it easy, but towards the end of the season I was wanting to learn more stuff. Unfortunately I am the most advanced rider I go with as everyone else I know actually took it up after I did.

2013 Burton Honcho 158
Ruler Restricted size 11 boots
Burton Freestyle bindings

I am 6'1", 190'

Hey guys,

My name is Ben and I'm a travelaholic from Australia. I'm 29 years old, six foot, normal build with an average sized pecker at best. I'm about as pretty as a hat full of assholes but I make up for that by having impeccable taste in footwear.

I'm normally a Mining Engineer but the wife and I sold pretty much all of our possessions at the end of 2012 and have been travelling the world ever since, predominantly in Europe but all over the joint really. We're very fortunate to have to opportunity to see some amazing parts of the world and meet heaps of great folks. I love photography also and I'd like it to become my profession at some stage. I'm writing a travel blog at methodically muddled | tall tales and short stories of a purposefully disorganised trip abroad if you wanna see some of my photographic work.

In terms of boarding I'd say I'm somewhere between intermediate and advanced but I'm certainly not a pro by any stretch. I saw the snow for the first time in December 2011r, flying from our little town in outback Australia in summer to Iceland in winter - a 60 degree celcius temp change. Anyway since then I've been obsessed with the snow and most trips during winter months now focus on getting in some boarding.

I've been to Tigne le Lac and Chamonix in France, Niseko in Japan and Whistler Blackcomb in Canada and loved all of em.

Look forward to getting some good advice from you mob and hopefully I can help out somebody else along the way.

Cheers, beers and prostitutes.

I'm 32, I live and work in downtown Atlanta ga. Sucks. I inspect trains for a living. I tattoo and repair almost anything usually for free but sometimes it pays well.
I've been snowboarding for around 10 years. I'm no pro but I can shred, I'm very comfortable on a board and feel at home when I'm on a mountain strapped in (its hard explain that feeling). I've taugh over 10 people the basic technics and have been paid by a friend to teach his girl. Though I would much rather be riding, I feel guilty if I can help someone and do nothing about it. I will never be done learning and pushing myself with this sport. I've done or played almost every sport I can think of but nothing compares to how I feel about snowboarding. I love buying gear more then most women like buying shoes. I plan to move north towards Boston and drive to Vermont every week.

I try not to give "advise" but rather just share my experiences and opinions.

I will ride till my body dies. I've lived a rough life and strapping in, instantly relieves stress and I find peace of mind.

I'm not the best speller and can't even write a proper sentence. But I did not spend my life on computers and video games. I was outdoors doing whatever I could find to cause an adrenalin rush. Some really stupid shit now that I look back. To each his own though.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
