greetings

Hi one and all.. just a quick intro. I'm a newbie, but been boarding 12/13 years. Learned to ride while living in Seoul, South Korea as an English teacher but am from the uk originally and back here now.. as a result of living in seoul I learned to ride on ice and slush depending on altitude and time of year! Not quite the conditions you get in Japan..

Currently riding an old Salomon Fastback 164 that I am looking to swap for something that will help me progress..

Good to be here.

Hola,

im 17 years old, from Portsmouth UK. I ride for about 2 weeks a year with my family, and in my gap year (15/16 season) im planning on doing a season in a resort in the alps (thinking meribel/val thorens at the moment) doing slave labour for a free ski pass and bed to pass out in I enjoy longboarding with a couple of mates, and the thought of moving to somewhere in the USA (near a mountain) has been at the back of my mind for a while, but i havent really given it much practical thought, but the idea of getting 50 days+ a season instead of 12 or 13 makes me stupidly happy

Hey :)

Hey everyone!
Originally from Russia, I started skiing when I was 8, but switched to snowboarding when I was 10 (because it is way cooler duh). Unfortunately, because I went to high school in Brighton, UK, past 4 years I snowboarded for only few day per year
However, now I live in California because of college (and partly because I can snowboard here haha), so back into the game!
Rode on Burton Feather since 2008 (or 09?), and although it's still surprisingly ok on a groomed snow (what I mostly got in St.Perersurg, Russia), this season upgraded to GNU B-Pro c3btx in order to bomb those black and double diamond slopes in Mammoth and to keep up with my skiers friends. Also looking for a cheap jibbing deck to crash! Hopefully I will decide on which one before the spring sale finishes
I'm very excited to learn more about snowboarding and do be part of this community!

New to the forum, have posted before on another forum in Australia. Thought I would join up to get some advice on a trip we are planning for the end for the year. I posted a thread about it in the travel section.
A bit about me, mid 20's male from Australia, only been snowboarding for about 5 years, only about 50 days max on snow though, so expensive here in oz. this will be my first time back on the board after a knee injury early last year, managed 5 days on a blown ACL.
Keen to test it out on some US slopes at the end of the year!

Hi people.

Another Australian here!

In 36 from Perth, Western Australia. We get zero snow here.

Ive grown up surfing and snowboarded for the first time in 2000. A total of 2 days. Loved it.
I didn't go again until a mate moved to Japan. Went to his wedding, drove through the mountains in summer. Still some snow. I told him I enjoyed snowboarding when I did it, he said I should come back in winter.

So I went to Japan in Feb 2012, with a total of 2 days experience in snow.
Borrowed a board. Bought some pants, jacket and boots. Hit the snow and became an addict. My love of POW began!

Did a couple of days in Oz. Brought a Yes The Greats 160w and Rome 390 Boss bindings. A couple more days in oz.

Then 2014 back to Japan. More powder. After a couple of days getting back into it I was doing tree runs through knee deep powder. So much fun.

Bought another board on the weekend. A 2015 Yes Pick Your Line 161w with 2013 Flux SF45 bindings. And new Burton Ruler boots.
And booked flights to Japan for 2015!
Might sneak in a couple of days in Oz in July/August.

Sorry for the essay!

Take it easy.

Brett

I'm always a little embarrassed about whining about our crappy seasons after reading something like this.

I'm a half-hour from 3 mountains. jeez.

Yep, although those mountains get more rain than powder! jokes

Our AB/BC season lasts over 6 months, startup before Halloween and goes until May 24... Not too shabby!
