Exclamation

Hey, I'm Josh from Upstate NY. I have been boarding for two years and got my first board today! No more crappy rentals for me!

Tonight, I went to a local board shop I was told about and talked to someone there. I was looking at the Custom for a while and was about to get it when the associate helping me (also named Josh) showed me the Rome Crail, the board I originally wanted this time last year. He told me that the board would be better if I decided to begin to ride in the park. I got a feel for the board, and liked it a lot. The big selling point for me was the fact that I could still afford some Burton Custom bindings. I bought the bindings and have just set it all up to take some pics and get some kicks!

I was going to buy from REI.com but went to a bunch of shops before I found what I wanted, lol

This weekend I will try to post the unboxing of my bindings on youtube, I'll add the link for anyone interested, although they are not the best.

Hey all,
My name's Ben and I'm 24. Just graduated from engineering school and learned what is like to have free time. I decided to spend it snowboarding this winter and couldn't have been happier with the choice. I've been chilling in Spokane, WA this year and by the looks of it, I'm the only one here representing Eastern WA. Nothing to epic to ride here but we've got Mt. Spokane, 49 North, Silver, Lookout, and Schweitzer all within about 2 hours or less, so I can't complain about the variety. Made it up 15-20 times this year and got pretty decent (although a mildly dislocated shoulder kept me out of the park). Lookin for tips to improve my riding.

Hey guys, my name's Ophus, 18 ,and from good ol' Colorado

Just ending my 2nd season this year. My home mountain is Monarch if anybody has heard of it? Maybe? But this year I'm hitting up all these places like A-Basin, Echo, Breck, and Key. Definitely glad I picked up snowboarding!

Hey, the name is Jay... I've been a Professional Snowboard Instructor for 17 years now, riding for 20.

Was a big active member on another forum but its kinda dying over there... so I am stopping by here to see how the people are. I've been in the industry for a long time. Head Snowboard Instructor, Terrain Park Manager, and Events Coordinator for a small resort back in the midwest for a long time. Moved back out to Colorado after a short stint back home after the war. Now I'm just an adult instructor at the Beav. AASI certified, member the the NSAA, and a few others. I write how-to's and other instructions for Shred Betties, and a few other internet based magazines.

I am a Disabled Vet from the United States Marine Corps where i served 8 years. Not really bad disabled, just a torn up shoulder and no hearing in one ear from a rocket blast.

So anyway i'll snoop around a bit and see how i like things here... here are some pics!

My brother and I when he came to visit... I'm in the Green and dont ask about my snowboard, i wont tell you.






One of my students


And my other hobby...
