New to the forum but not new to the game. I'm 52 yo and have been riding for the past 35 years. I get 50 to 100 days out of a season, most of these around the province of Quebec (Canada), where I live. I mostly ride pow and groomers with a heavily carve influenced style, so no parks for me (being old and fat with bad knees is a bad combo
). I am a big guy (very very heavy) so I ride big boards (160cm to 185cm), stiff boots (Burton Driver X) and stiff bindings (Ride El Hefe).
I have been lucky enough to be involved with the design and testing of a few boards during the nineties with a couple of different local manufacturers. Being the shaper/designer and co-owner of a small skateboard/longboard company (my summer passion for the past 40 years), it was only a matter of time for us to start a snowboard division. We did so and I have been riding our boards for the past two seasons.
Looking forward to be part of the community and get involved in the forum. Hope to make some new friends and maybe, who knows, reconnect with some old ones.
