whats up? my name is shane, i'm from pittsburgh, and i'm not necessarily new to snowboarding, just new to actually snowboarding myself if that makes any sense. last year i decided to try it early on in the season and rent a board. surprisingly i taught myself super quick, made it down the hill with no trouble whatsoever, and fell in love. after reading about people's experiences i'm shocked that i was fine on my own without instruction and glad i didnt mess myself up, haha. anyways, i went home that night and searched the web for some good deals on equipment, went in debt a bit to buy my board bindings and boots, and went around 15 times last year. this year i bought a pass to seven springs which is one of the two hills out my way. i plan to go as much as possible and continue to progress. im stoked! i've lurked on this site for a while now just reading instructional posts and equipment guides, and figured it was about time i registered. i'm actually taking a trip out to arizona in january and plan on riding at the snowbowl, so im excited to actually ride on a real mountain. anyways, sorry for the long post, any PA guys or girls that want to ride this season, let me know. none of my friends at school ride, only ski. so im stuck on a board by myself for now.
