Hello,

My name is Karlijn, 23 years old and the newest member of this snowboarding forum
I do not live in the US, I'm from the Netherlands where? That small country next to Germany. Living in the Netherlands means: wet weather, but hardly any snow and if it does, the land is as flat as a pancake, so where to board off?

We have a few indoor halls, which in one of the smallest i have learned to board! This year I bought my first snowboard: a K2 Slayblade !
I was looking for an easy, female board, but turns out I need a hard core man board .
I have been snowboarding in France two years ago and will go to Flaine (FR) this year.

Non of my friends are into snowboarding, so I hope to find some information about everything about snowboarding here on the forum!

Welcome Karlijn. Loads of interesting info here, loads of different opinions to.
Good to see a fellow Dutchmen here. Just a pity we have to drive for 12 hrs to get to some decent mountains.

Thanks Cozmo! It is truly a pity. I live near the sea, so it will take me another 3 hrs longer to get to a nice ski area .

I live in the very north of NL, Austria is closer if u cut through Germany. 10 hrs straight where the French alps are 12hrs plus.
For all the US readers: the Netherlands has no mountains so most of us go only once a year for a week and that's it.

I'm 37 years old from Columbus Ohio. Been riding for about 21 years. Just recently got my wife into snowboarding and my 7 year old daughters have been riding for about 2 years. Can't wait for the mountains to be open. Happy to meet you all.

Hey

New to the forum (and boarding) so go easy!

I'm 27, from Dublin Ireland

I've been on two trips now and I'm officially hooked! Heading away for 2 weeks over Christmas and literally can't wait to get back up the mountain! Living on a tiny rock in the middle of the ocean we don't get much access to places to board as our biggest mountain is still technically a hill ha, so progress will be slow enough i'd imagine although i am hoping to do a season in Canada next year!

Hopefully you can all give me some advice in the mean time!
