Hello! I'm from Miami moved to the DC area. Going on my first snowboarding trip in a few weeks. I'm trying to learn more about the gear and really get educated on the sport.

Heyaz everyone! Im from northern Alberta and 36. Finished getting all setup this christmas, and ready (I hope) to take in this sport. Figured I better learn fast due to the fact that my son is 7 and loves it, and my wife has taken it up as well and for her first time has done awesome.

Good stuff Assassin, I'm 36 as well and just started last year, most fun I've had in a winter in a long time.

We live in Michigan, and get lots of snow in the winter, and have beautiful lakes for playing in the summer.

Thanks for reading.
Kitsurfing is big fun! Picked it up last spring and loved it. Know to handle a snowboard surely helps, but it's rather comparable to spring slush surfing or wakeboarding. However, it's the kite that will absorb all your attention in the beginning. Great feeling as soon as it clicks and you can steer it and use its power you'll have a blast

Thanks! I am definitely looking forward to learning to kiteboard. I have a practice kite that I used last summer. It is quite large, the only difference between it and a kite you would use on the water, is the inflatable edge. I was starting to get pretty desent with it, but I hope to take lessons this summer. A few "kids" I went to school with own a kiteboarding company here in Michigan, and I've chatted with them about taking some lessons. I would love to go on one of their trips they have each year. Who knows, maybe if I get good enough at both, I can use the kite in the winter to pull me on the snowboard, I've seen some stuff about people snowkiting. Looks fun. As of right now, I would just get my ass handed to me.

Hey,

Young blood here, glad to join the forums and get some insight on snowboarding. I definitely don't get out to the mountain enough, but I love the sport.

Hello everyone,

My name is Wes, I am 19 years old and I am from Florida. I have just gone snowboarding for the first time at Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico for the past two weeks and I am hooked!

As I previously said, this was my first time ever snowboarding so the first 3 or 4 days I was cruising around the green and blue trails getting the hang of it because I did not want to take lessons. By the 8th day I was making my way down the black diamond trails, and on days 10, 11 and 12 I was ripping down the double black diamond trails from the top of the mountain. I have always loved the mountains so when I began snowboarding I fell in love instantly because I get to be in an environment I love, and I get the adrenaline I crave.

I have done board sports all my life, starting with skateboarding at 8 years old, surfing at 13 years old and wake-boarding at 16 years old. Naturally I picked up snowboarding pretty quickly; and I discovered that I enjoy snowboarding more than all of the board sports I have ever done.

I hope to meet some interesting people and discover more about snowboarding during my time here.

TL;DR Wes, 19, Florida. First time snowboarding was the last two weeks and I am hooked. I have done other board sports but nothing compares to snowboarding. I hope to meet some interesting people during my time here.
