I'm Matt, from Southern Manitoba. Grew up skiing and switched to snowboarding. I'm not sure what I'd call my skill level. I only started boarding last year and just progressed extremely fast. In a years time I've purchased 3 setups (155 k2 lifelike w/ k2 sonic bindings, 154 Burton white collection standard w/ Burton Mission bindings, 153 lib tech t rice pro w/ union contact pro bindings)
I love boarding and have dumped thousands of $$$ into the hobby and enjoy it no matter the conditions. I hope to learn and progress year to year with the help of the community on this forum.
Cheers!

Hello, I'm Nick from England, currently living in Vancouver. I have lessons with my girlfriend booked for January, just doing lots of research right now and preparing to buy some gear. Although we probably won't be buying a board just yet!

Hi, my name's Jordan and I'll from England, but currently working in Brussels. I'm 19 and been snowboarding since about 10, but I first skiied when I was about 4. My parents tried to put me in a day care thing in France and I caused havoc on my first day and they wouldn't let me back in so my parents didn't have a lot of choice tbh! I've only ever been on one other forum, so this is sort of a new experience I guess. But I have been on that forum a loooong time. I basically joined for advice really - I've pretty much stopped growing now, so will be looking to invest in a board/boots etc. so will be hitting those threads in search of advice. My current board is pretty average, and I'm sure it's too small now. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now, see you around.

Nice one Jordan. Welcome... being in Belgium makes the mountains a fair bit easier for you to get too! Plenty of short trips this season I reckon? And trust me. You won't stop growing - in my late twenties I filled out in the muscle department and since my mid thirties I've been filling out in the gut department! Keep a lid on that if you can.

Cheers! Yeah it does. I've got some military friends going around the ski resorts in Europe, so hopefully I'll catch up with them a couple of times! I'm also looking at getting a job with a tour guide company in the Alps - just got to convince my girlfriend it's a good idea! Oh really? Fair enough! Haha yeah, I do eat pretty much all the time so I feel I will need to watch it! Haha. Hope you're well man.

I am from Japan and do snowboard.
I am going to be in Chamonix this early December. IF you are around, let me know. I need someone to snowboard with since all my friends do ski. Thanks!
