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

My name is Annie and I reside on Cape Cod and Bonaire (where I windsurf and SUP). I met someone who has turned me on to snowboarding. I have snowboarded at Cranmore and Bretton Woods and look forward to more experiences in NE and beyond. Am fairly close to Wachusett, where I used to ski, years back so will head up there for day trips.

First Snowboard Experience With Lesson: Cranmore Jan. 18
Second: Bretton Woods Jan. 19

I do not own any gear yet so look for advice. After day two, I get the concept of toe turns and toe stops and need a bit more practice on heel turns and heel stops. I feel I hestitated on both due to severe butt pain and bruising.

I hope to be on black diamond trails by 2015!!

Hey guys my name is Jesse, I am 21 years old, I live in Southern California and I just started to Snowboard about a month ago. I have always wanted to snowboard since I was younger; however, my parents would not let me in fear that I would get seriously injured. My first time was really fun and exhausting. My body was on a different level of sore that I had never felt before. I can't wait to go back and practice some more. I hope to learn some useful knowledge on this forum

Hi Jesse,

I was in the same boat as you, parents wouldn't go for it. Parents are so weird sometimes. I never got a birds and bees chat but I got the no motorcycles, no injury prone sports chat.

Welcome to the addictive sport.

Default Introduce yourself

Jason

Mostly Red Mountain Resort

Been boarding since 1990

when you only go 3 times a year & have a flat back yard, it's hard to get good.

Last year was my first season pass ever. Wifey loves me.

This year, no snow. We be praying every night haha

well hello.

O, just picked up the burton custom Flying V for this season. I've been once. I like it better than the custom X. Found out later on that X means extra stiff. Not cool.


O & got warranty on a pair of Vans Aurora so I made a change & waiting for Burton Grails to come in February.

Pumped.

Well this should be a fun time now

Darrell ‘Drail’ Talastas

Born and raised in VA, land of no snow, traffic jams and expensive living.

27 years old and I have been boarding for about 6 years off and on, been skateboarding since I was 15 and picked up snowboarding when I was about 18/20 I believe?

Just got back into it from a 5 year stint as I had my original set up stolen / moved out and was super broke haha.

Anyways stoked on getting back into it, I am down in Richmond VA now and just got back from Snowshoe Mountain and it’s like I never stopped (thank god).

Bought a new set up and rocking the Solomon Fierce and some Flow Fives

Going to be upgrading my boots and worn pants soon and then back to the slopes

26 from CA, been snowboarding one time and got hooked.
Just got some gear that im stoked to ride. Burton Ambush boots on a Burton Clash 155 paired with some Cartels.I got a good deal
on everything here. Was going to get a Rome Mod but right before purchase found a large ding that went through, so the shop
i was at said they could not sell me the board. I'm new to this whole snowboarding thins so i guess it was a bad ding either way
excited to start this new lifestyle.

Default Hello From Whitefish

Hi everyone! When I choose to do something I do it full guns and I just got into snowboarding and love it. The only thing I regret is that I didn't get into snowboarding sooner. I live in Whitefish Montana. I try to ride everyday before and/or after work. I read everything I can about snowboarding and I am goofy foot and like riding switch. I now have two NS decks. A Proto Hdx and a wide SL (NS calls it a legacy, i.e. whatever) I have GNU mutant bindings (mounted 15 degrees duck) and Burton boots. I found I like a wide 23" stance on the Proto. My favorite move so far is a toeside reverse falling leaf (people who know me on the mountain will know who I am from that lol). I have met many cool, helpful and friendly people on big mountain and hope to meet many more here and at other riding destinations. My friends and family call me BearPaw.
