Hey guys, Aussie kid here!

5 years boarding, i try to get out there as much as possible, but it's a little hard considering i'm on the coast 10 hours from the snow :P
16, can't wait to get out of school to head over to Canada to live and work for a couple of years (or longer perhaps ), the snow at Perisher is nothing compared to up north i hear.
Also just purchased my own gear, set up my 09' Burton custom bindings on my 08' Burton Blunt last night .

Canadian, 19 years old, been out a collective total of about one and a half seasons at the local ski hill, Kinosoo Ridge in Cold Lake, Alberta, which is already closed for the season . Recently picked up riding again cause I can finally afford it, bought a Burton Shaun White 156 (from 2007 or 2008, dont really know) and recently got a Stairmaster Extreme 156 in a end of season sale which I cant wait to ride next year. Hoping to visit the Rockies and hit up Banff and Jasper before the season is over and cant wait to improve my riding and learn a lot from this site and its members.

Only a few seasons, sonny. A late convert from skiing.

Hi, I'm from CA. I went snowboarding for the first time yesterday, and I really liked it. Althogh, my arms, legs, and butt is sore from falling, I kinda got the hang of it by the time I got down the hill the first time.

Well I don't ski, I ride... Geez this is snowboarding-forum.com right??

And I work at Sunshine Village, so mostly here, but my favorite places so far (first season here), are Fernie and Revelstoke. Kicking horse is okay but a crappy lift system.
