This was back in the ohhh......I want to say mid-late 90's and I've been holding onto it ever since. It's made a lovely wall fixture in my bedroom over the years, but now I want to actually try and use it. I've searched around the web in hopes of finding some information about it, but can't find anything. Its a Full Tilt snowboard, but all I can find out about the company is that they are a ski boot manufacturer. Was this a new market the company tried to venture into back then and then quit? Was this just a prototype for the company? Did Full Tilt ever manufacture snowboards? Like I said, I've searched everywhere it seems and can't find anything about this snowboard I have. If anyone knows anything about it and could help me out I would greatly appreciate it I took some picks also and could post them on here if need be. Thanks in advance!
Heath, if you didn't already, start a new thread and include some pics. There's a lot of folks on here that know their gear, or know where to find out.

Default Hi everyone

Hey guys and gals,

New forumer here... i'm from the caribbean (Dominican Republic), but moved to sunny Vancouver BC about two yrs ago. Started snowboarding last season (mostly the local hills Cypress and Seymour). This year i have a Silver season for Cypress and will definitely be hitting Seymour and Whistler a few times as well; maybe even the interior.

I'm 36. I have skateboarded most of my life and been longboarding for a few years as well; so i guess snowboarding was pretty obvious thing to do. Was doing blue runs on my second day, and blacks on my 4th; but i'm taking it slow and hope to never catch on a toeside down a steep... I like nice powder runs (yes they're scarce around here, but i'd settle for Soft groomed) and hitting features along the way. Wanna learn some park, but i tore the ACL some yrs ago, so none o' that L or XL stuff...

That's it i think. See you around!

Default Intro

What's up!

Name's Paul. I'm brand new to the forum, but not new to snowboarding. I've been boarding for a little over ten years, but only recently have done what I consider "real" snowboarding - throwing myself off large rocks and things. I learned to snowboard in the mild & mellow hills of Western Pennsylvania, but now reside in Mammoth Lakes, California - home to Mammoth Mountain.

I also have a website that tries to be a simple guide to Mammoth Lakes. I'm a hotel front desk agent, and I'm always making suggestions and telling people about the area, so I decided to put it all down on a useful website for people visiting Mammoth. The website is Mammoth Mountain | A Destination for All Seasons

I also write a Mammoth Mountain Snow Report!
I'm looking forward to participating in this great forum!
Paul

Thanks Poutanen! If our paths cross sometime you would be welcome to take it for a spin. It was made for my particular biometrics, but think it would still be ok for someone of similar stats to ride it.

Im Peter! I'm 15, love snowboarding and skating. I've mostly been riding slope, like blacks and double blacks, so I am a pretty strong snowboarder regarding slope. Recently (Last year mostly) I have really started getting into park and of course loving it.

Default hi fellow shredheads!!

I apologize for putting the cart before the horse and posting questions before introducing myself.....lol.....but here I am, and glad to meet you all!
I live in Milwaukee, wi and have been ridin' since 07.
get this,...I lived in Idaho for six years but didn't start ridin' till I came back here!!.....ok,....yea, yea,...that was reeeeeealy DUMB
BUT....I did go back there in 09 and hit up a TON of resorts including sun
valley, sweitzer, pomerelle, brundage, bogus, silver, pebble creek and magic.
can you tell yet that I'm completely, totally and hopelessly in love with this sport???......lol.....ahhh, if ONLY I had started in my 20's
I basically eat, drink, sleep and pine away for this sport...lol
I dream about having thousands of dollars of disposable income to just travel resorts worldwide.....oh gosh,...the thought of that just gave me a thrill!

lol....anyway,...I love to ride and ride park too,...but mainly I am fascinated
by the physics of snowboarding. The seemingly ENDLESS things you can do with this sport is mindboggling. I could never get bored,...and my body is going to give out waaaaaay before I am a master.....and it makes me sad.
But.....I'm ridin' this train as far as it'll take me!
I compare snowboarding to very dangerous golf. Angles, trajectories, mastering of the swing, body alignment and perfecting form all come together to create something amazing! It's a JOURNEY to see what you're made of and how the brain adapts to new stimuli. Ok...now I guess i'm headed into geekland
but I don't care......my brain has a field day with this stuff and it's turned into a close friend I am constantly creating stronger and stronger bonds with. I come back to it and it's still there,....waiting for me with a smile.....challenging me, sometimes making me mad and frustrated,...but always loving and beautiful and free.
I am so grateful for the knowledge I have and the good friend I have met.....
we're gonna ride into the sunset together and i'll have memories of it always.
love ya SB.....you're truly amazing and wonderful, I'll love you always.

I'm so glad to meet everyone here who I have this in common with, and it's
great to be able to talk and relate to others who know what I know.
Most people my age (i'm 44) I talk to about sboarding get this glazed look in
their eyes when I start to get a bit passionate....lol
they just don't understand and I really REALLY feel sorry for them. It's sortof
bittersweet because sometimes I feel like i'm alone.
That's why i'm really glad to be here....thankyou fellow boarders and kindred
spirits. Thank you thank you for this common bond and connection, and I'm lookin' forward to hearin' from you,...reading your posts, and being able to include you all in this awesome journey of gut, heart, spirit and freedom!
