Oh hi

My name is Jon. I'm relatively old and have been snowboarding for too many years to count

Recently made the big move from Ontario to Kelowna BC. I've got a pass at Big White and also plan on visiting as many resorts in the area as possible over the next few years

I also work out of my home office, so I have a strong need for daytime distractions on the computer

Sounds like you and Burton are set, snow is important! Again welcome and keep on shredding!

Hey everbody,

My name is Austin; I'm from Southern California but live in Colorado Springs now for school.

Learned to ride 2 seasons past after a lifetime of being a skier despite history in both skating and surfing. Went boarding once(in Brianhead actually-that place is awesome so I almost regret spending one of my days there learning to board, almost), started looking for an old board I could use as soon as I got home. I ended up with an old Burton Custom(158, year 2005) for a hundred bucks, got some boots, and have been loving it ever since.

Hope to learn quite a bit by reading all this neat stuff.

hi everybody

My name is loic and i'm 20 years old. I live in belgium where there is no snow so i had to go to the alps every year for a week ( like the majority of belgium ). I have skied for several years and was always fascinated by the snowboarding world. I have now 4 weeks of snowboarding experience and I am really excited
at how fast you can progress.
I was always more intrigued by freestyle and park but now i would like to get in the powder snow, create my own kicker and just have some fun in the snow.
At the moment i am looking to get my own gear. I thought i would begin with the boots and then next year i'll get board and bindings. I hope i'll find the information i need to buy the right gear.

hope to learn a lot here

Hello everybody,

My name is Maike and I'm 15 years old. I've just one week of snowboarding experience but I'm already addicted. I've subscribed to this forum to learn a lot about snowboarding

However, I'll start with a question already: who is snowolf? I see a lot of people replying to him but I can't see his posts. Also I can't find the videos everybody talks about. Can anyone link me to his videos?

Thanks a lot,

Hi, I am Jonas from Belgium and I'm 18 years old.
I've been snowboarding 3 times, and I love to capture my boarding moments with the GoPro.

Last year, I bought a GoPro hero 3 black. I hope I can create beautiful movies with it

I also study Multimedia so I learn about editing and filming...

Hello everyone.
My name is Bruno, I'm from Brazil, a little bit far away from all of you I guess (and a little bit far away from snow as well, since we don't actually have snow here at all).

On 2007 I went on a Work and Travel exchange program and I stayed for 3 months at Telluride, Colorado working for the ski resort (and snowboarding the hell out ther too). On 2011 I went snowboarding again, but this time at Bariloche, Argentina, but only for a week =/

Well, I still have my setup since 2007 and it is pretty much mixed up.
Salomon board (I don't know the right name models)
Ride bindings
Salomon boots.

I'm thinking of changing my board this year. I'm thinking on swiching it for a K2 Parkstar from last season that I've heard quite good things about it... what do you guys think?
I'm looking for an All Mountain board, but I like to ride parks too (I'm actually learning, but I love the jumps and easy boxes hahahaha)

I'm going to Whistler now at Februrary.... and I think that's about it.
Thanks you all

Default New here...

So yeah, I joined mainly because I'm always reading reviews and upon a few google searches I've ended up here. So you are welcome in advance for my cooperation. I'll sum it all up by saying my first board was a Checkered Pig and a pair of Sorels. I ditched that board and ride something newer. I'm originally from the states, but now I call Switzerland home.

New to the forum, been lurking on board info for a while.

Advanced all mountain with some freestyle riding thrown into the mix. When health insurance in California gets settled I'll probably start hitting the park again.

Just pulled the trigger on a 2014 155 T. Rice Pro HP after my last season's 161 de-laminated. Hopefully it's enough board for my 5'11 170lb self with 10.5 boots. Board I really wanted was a nanaMagic 157, but those are hard to come by. Also, with this west coast drought I'm not too worried about the powder this year. I'll probably be singing a different tune on my trip to JacHole though.

Maybe I'll see you at the mountain collective resorts this year, or my home mtn. of Mammoth.
