Well…

Old is not a matter of age but in most cases a matter of a persons brain. But thanks for a comment.

Don't misunderstand, that wasn't a jab! At 53, riding for a couple years, seeing someone in their 60's and rockin 100+ days riding?

Gives me MAD hope! The welcome was a sincere welcome!

Hey! New member to this forum.

I'm 20. I'm from: Victoria, Australia.
Although we get hardly any snow here, trying to ride what we have is too fun!

Just came out of winter, not happy!
Thinking of going to Japan in feb and maybe NZ in August 2014.

Cheers!

Hi everyone, new member from Maryland, been lurking on the forum for the last few weeks and decided to join finally.

I'm 23 and have been riding for around 8 years. Normally ride the Poconos, mainly JFBB

Hoping to learn new things and make some new friends on here!

What up everybody. New to the forum, I'm 28, and live in San Diego, CA.

I've got my own gear that I purchased back in 2007 when I went snowboarding for the first time. Since then, I've only managed to snowboard 5 days (Twice in Wolf Creek, CO. which spoiled me since the closest mountain to SD is Big Bear).

After searching the forum, my board and bindings probably won't get me to the snowboarder I aspire to be, so I'm Hoping to learn and gain guidance about the new gear that's out there.
