I'm 18 years old and live in Minnesota, where the hills are small and parks are big.

Whats up people, I am from the DC area and started riding around 90' or 91' on a Morrow multipro. I currently ride a Custom X with triad est and a K2 Parkstar with cartels. I'm thinking about a Never Summer or Gnu as my next board. Coming back from a knee injury and still haven't been back in a park yet since my knee is still not that great...thankfully it is my front knee and I can freeride without too much trouble. Might get back to hitting some kickers later this season if it holds up. Planning on making a trip out west again this year. Also hitting the local mid atlantic resorts and maybe a trip up to New England, probably NH and maybe VT.

I'm new here. It looks like this is the right place for this. I grew up in Ohio ripping the 230' vertical of a converted landfill, now I live in central New York and have much bigger "hills" to ride and more snow. That's about it. Enjoy.

Hello, I'm new to the forums. I've been snowboarding about 1-2 times a year for the past 4 years. This year I plan on buying my own board and make more of an effort to get out with buddies and hit the slopes.

I'm From Michigan, 26, married with 2 kids. Can't wait to learn from you all and get to know you better.

New to the forum from NJ

Hi, I'm new here but been boarding for 8 years or so. I live in NJ and will do a morning session at Blue MT or a full day just about anywhere else. I like Belleayre mountain in NY also because hardly anyone goes there and they have some tough\fast terrain. Next thursday I will be on a plane heading to Vail. I've been to Heavenly and Kirkwood in Tahoe and loved both places, The Milkway bowl in Heavenly is one of my favorite places on earth but there wasnt much else in Tahoe that made me wanna stay. I'm told I will never want to leave CO after this trip.

My everyday stick is a Burton T6 156. I purchased it in the summer months for $225 with triad bindings on fleabay. I gave the bindings to a friend because they were too big and threw on a set of craigslist cartels. I don't do much in the park other then jump and grab stuff, my boards too stiff to have much fun in there anyways. I do go as fast as I can at all times. I love the speed that my board gives me, nothing is better then carving out a lazy wide line early in the morning. For my trip I just purchased a new board, well its a leftover from 2004!!! So yeah an 04 Burton fish 160. Alittle big for me (175-180lbs) but I'll muscle it around just fine!

Other then boarding I rock climb, play in three indoor soccer leagues, shoot guns and MT bike. I also work in IT to pay for all my hobbies.

Hi everyone,

I decided it was time to post an intro since I've been posting around here recently. Been reading the forum off and on for about a year now.

Snowboarding is deffinitely my theropy, I go up there to forget about everything and have a good time. I'm so addicted it's not even funny, been self taught so far. Let's just say not learning how to stop first didn't come with out a price...

Anyway people seem to like some stats so here goes:

Live and From: Portland, Oregon
Stomping Grounds: Ski Bowl, Meadows
Age: 28 (4th year riding)
I rock a Snaggletooth Operation Jacket most of the time, thinking about getting some matching pants this year.

Just got a new setup for this year so stoked!
Board: 2013 GNU Carbon Credit replacing a Burton Clash
Bindings: Burton Cartel replacing Burton Freestyles
Boots: K2 Raiders
