Default Hey Hey

Hey I am 32 years old, a wife and a mom who works and goes to college. I am going to be learning to snowboard this season with my almost 13 year old son. My husband and daughter ski. I hope to learn to kiteboard next summer, and thought getting used to a snowboard might help me get the feel of riding a board for kite boarding even though I realize they are very different. We live in Michigan, and get lots of snow in the winter, and have beautiful lakes for playing in the summer.

Thanks for reading.

I'm a 16 year old snowboarder from Toronto, Ontario, been snowboarding since I was 8. I would say I'm intermediate-expert on the slopes, but intermediate on terrain park. I'm trying to learn double backs, rodeos, and corks this season, I am very picky when it comes to my sizing. I board at Blue mountain, Dagmar, and Mount St. Louis. Hope to have an awesome season!

Hi, I'm a 16 year old boarder from the middle of nowhere in Western Mass. I've been snowboarding for 7 or 8 years and mostly ride glades and side trails. This season my friends who are pretty good in the park are going to start teaching me the ways of the terrain parks.

Hi,

I'm a 38 year old, currently living in Poland. I've been a hardbooter for most of my snowboarding career, but recently began to enjoy soft boot carving. Mostly because with all the family junk we take on any ski/snb trip, I can only pack one or two snowboards. So soft boots are the more versatile choice.

I've joined snowboardingforum cause I've noticed that my stuff (like vids on youtube) were linked a few times from this forum. Nothing about me, without me

Cheers
Bart

Never saw this thread before believe it or not... So here we go.... My name's Andrew been on here for a few months throwing my .02 in every once in a while, more so than later since i'm frikkin stoked right now. Just got a 2014 162 W Gnu Carbon Credit with Union Forces. My old stick is a 2009 Alibi Sicter 166W with the crappiest bindings on the market (burton freestyles didnt know any better.) haven't got a chance to ride the new setup but im pumped about it. I go to college in NH, and get a lot of riding time in. Can't wait til i get back from break to continue the fun!

Yes, I'm the person riding Volkl Coal here: Voelkl Coal XT 168 - carving in soft boots - YouTube , if that is what you meant...

Recently I began a 'chairlift review' series of equipment, mainly snowboards. Since I became totally pissed off with a lot of reviews out there that do not have any riding in it... just some dude in a shop telling marketing stuff at me. Like NS Raptor here: Chairlift Review - Never Summer Raptor 164 2013/4 Snowboard by MeGustaSport.com - YouTube
Comments welcome (might try a new topic for that).

There will be more stuff coming in weeks - new Volkl Coals, Arbors and more.

Cheers
Bart

Sweet! Yeah I'm the one that's posted that video a few times here. Used it as a reference for what soft boot carving should look like.

I was debating between the Coal, the Kessler Ride, an Oxess Freeride, and a Virus Avalanche FLP AFT. I ended up with the Virus and love it! Although I've since seen the Volkl Coal Race (BX) in a board shop here in Calgary, and would love to give it a try...

Cheers
