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!

Welcome! I did the same stupid thing myself. Lived in CA. for 20 years in my youth and didn't snowboard. Had to wait till I moved back to MI. and picked it up @ 50!

+1 on that! Plenty of those (...asshats that is.) around to rain on your parade! I got a little of the same response early on too! Between being fairly interwebz/social networking ignorant and being So geek-ified and stoked about riding!

Add to that the fact that although I'm not a natural athlete at all, I was frankly amazed that I picked it up and progressed as quickly as I did! Especially for a guy my age!


It sounds like you found the right place!!

Default Hello, I'm a newb

Hey! I'm Addison, I'm from western PA, I boarded once last season and picked it up pretty well. I recently got a used board with bindings for $50 so I'm looking to get some more time out there this season, I'm a complete beginner, I've surfed and skated before, so the board feeling is comfortable.
