24 years old, live in Southeast New Mexico. Beginner for sure, but love boarding, this year is the first year I have/will be going multiple times, and next year I will more than likely go every weekend.

new boarder here 19 years old in college park maryland.

I went snowboarding about 3 times when i was in 6th grade, broke my wrist, and quit for a year.

Came back in 8th grade and went about 4 or 5 times where I got more comfortable riding but I realize now I couldnt carve or link turns well, I mostly just turned just turned my body perpendicular to the slope and sort of hockey stopped whenever I went too fast.

Yesterday I went for my first times with my friends who are all park rats. I watched snow wolf's instructional videos and some other small things on jumping before I went out, then started carving (I am pretty sure at least...) down the blues and a black at the local mountain (ski liberty so its really not comparable to most more difficult ski resorts). Once I was comfortable I joined my friends in the park and managed to hit the butter box, ollie onto a box, handle the roll ins to the big jumps... and then avoid the big jumps, and land indies on the small jumps.

Looking forward to learning more and buying my gear after the season ends so it will hopefully be cheaper.

I'm new to the sport and forum too...I currently work and reside in nyc but still have lots of family and friends in ct & northern va. I go boarding mostly with friends in Va but am looking to venture out to visit a few of the mountains around nyc and eventually make my way up north to VT next season!

Another Snowboard.com refugee

Glad I found this place. After over three years at that pos Colonies board, I couldn't take it anymore. Some other ex Colonies member, who chose to remain anonymous, recommended this place after I dared post a question over there asking why the place was dead, and started a shitstorm of name-calling from the haters -- who seem to be the only people left over there.

So anyway, glad to be here. I hope! It sure can't be worse than that other hellhole.

BTW -- I'm from Cocoa Beach, Florida, but have lived in New England for many years now. I can't surf anymore, so I took up snowboarding about 8 years ago as the next best thing, since the ocean didn't seem to be getting any closer to central Connecticut. I ride mostly Vermont; Stowe and Jay Peak are my faves, but anywhere I can get out will do -- usually ride once or twice a week.
