Hello everybody!
My name is Andy.

My usual forum is the GS resource where everybody complains about cold weather and snow. (Suzuki motorcycle forum)

I have been snowboarding for over 20 years with some seasons having over 90 days on the slopes.
Wish I could spend more time out there as I am terribly addicted!

I live in Franklin county Pa. 20 min from Whitetail resort, and 25 min from Ski Liberty.

I have made snow for over 8 years, swung chairs as a liftie for a few, worked on ski lifts as a mechanic for 6 years and spent a winter in the snowboard rental shop when I broke my arm in a boarder cross event.

I have a great love for living my life to its fullest and the great outdoors.

I am sure I will offend some of you now and then as the devil rides shotgun on my shoulder more often then not, but have good advice, and willing to help a brother or sister out.

Went riding yesterday and the snow was great here in Pa. stayed mostly the same even after the sun set, lots of soft stuff to dig a edge into with a bit of ice scraped up to add some extra speed. (east coast conditions)

Hope to meet a few of you here in the forums and perhaps out on the snow!

CHEERS! Andy

Hey all, new guy here from Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Grew up in Vancouver where the riding and Mountain Biking is mega, and I'm getting back into both so my daughters and I can do something fun outside( they are 2 and 5). Went with my 5 year old for the first time in 12 years the other week and it all came back midway through a lesson. Love it! Anyway, howdy.

Cool wwaaazzzaaaaappppppp

26 y.o from New England. I've been riding for 4 seasons now. I'm not a newby but learned to ride on my own so my styles a little funky. Im always looking for tips and hints to improve my stance, performance and style. I frequent Vermont resorts like Mt snow n Stratton. But I honestly just go where the pow is. Happy shredding!

Hey People!

Name's Pete (web handle: Pedro- it's been that way for years), 31 and from UK but have been living in Tokyo for 4 years. Last year I tried snowboarding late in the season and loved it. This year, I tried again and loved it more. After 2 swings on rental, I bought my own gear:

K2 Raygun 161 (I'm 185cm and 84kg)
K2 sonic bindings
K2 Boa Transit 28.5cm (just on the edge of a regular board- usually I'm a 29.5 here, but the Transits were snug enough)

Not a K2 nut, but a result of some savvy savings/worries over compatibility.

Early door impressions are that I am an explorer more than a park rider, though I've managed some basic butters, ollies, and craptastic air spins (because I can't carve properly yet)!

So far in japan I've hit Naeba, Marunumakogen and Aizu Takatsue, but am looking forward to going further afield when I finally have some holiday.

Any other fellow Gaikokujin here?

Wanted to sign up because this forum has helped with board repairs and technique. Can't say I can add anything of value yet, but hopefully when I'm a little less green!

- Pete

Hi all, I picked up boarding when I was 13, but last week was the first time I went boarding in the past 11 years! And man, did it feel good to be back! However, I'm still riding the same 1996 Morrow snowboard I got when I was 13, so I'm definitely ready for an upgrade. I'm joining you guys since over the past 17 years apparently snowboard technology has completely exploded, and I have no idea what kind of board to get! Looking forward to diving in!

Hey guys,

I'm 14 and I live in Washington, U.S.

I've only been snowboarding a couple of times but I'm really in to it. I'm so excited about joining this forum and I hope to learn more and more about this epic sport.
