43 year old from Western Mass. Skied all my life, took a hiatus about 7 years back. When my son turned 9 I decided to start him on a board. I always wanted to try but even in my 20s thought it'd be too hard a transition.

Came here a while ago looking for advice for him, but got the bug after seeing a few success stories from people my age. I think from my first post some people sas I had an itch that needed scratching.

Sunday was my first time out, then Thursday, and by yesterday was managing the whole mountain (granted its just the Berkshires) and keeping up with my son. In fact him seeing me not on skis and doing the same thing as him has been great at pushing him to improve. Yesterday was a great day.

hey everyone..

I'm 21 years old. Public Relations major / spanish minor with one year left and this is my second season snowboarding.

Just got back from Jay Peak and thought I'd finally make an account here after lurking around for awhile.

Nice to meet you all.

Hey people,
My name is Bob. 18 years old and currently living in Holland.
I'm Dutch/English.

I started my experience on the snow with skiing. The season after
that I decided to go snowboarding. I've been snowboarding for
about 7 years. Due to the lack of mountains and snow in
Holland I go to an indoor hall at least twice a month. Every
season I head to Saas Fee, Switzerland for a week or two.

This summer I'm heading to New Zealand to go shred

My current setup:
Lib-Tech T.Rice Pro 153
Burton Cartel
Burton Imperial

Hi everyone!

My name is Natalie. I live in milwaukee, wisconsin I'm 22 and iv been riding for 13 years. I go about 30-40 times per year but don't know too many people who will ride with me that much haha, so if your in the milwaukee area and ride alpine, little swiss, Tyrol, granite peak, etc I'd love to meet you!

Iv recently gotten into park. Basic stuff, straight airs, grabs, boxes, flat rails. But I have the most fun charging and carving, the park scene helps with my Midwest boredom :P

My current setups are lib tech TRS, flow prima and gnu park pickle, flow minx-se. Looking to get a burton feelgood for next year. I also ski, wakeboard and skateboard

Had a year or two(?) of French in high school...I'm amazed I understood most of that! Never paid attention in class. Apparently some part of my brain did haha. That or I'm a genius.

Btw...sneaky 4th sentence statement on a snowboard forum

Also, nice of you to be on top of this thread welcoming everyone. The rest of us are slackers.

I used to welcome people in here too but nobody replied! I figured they didn't have "auto subscribe" on and had no idea anyone had replied to them...
