I am a 29 year old guy born and raised in Maui and moved to Monterey recently.
After the second time trying snowboarding at Snow Valley, Big Bear.......I'm HOOKED. Guess its replacing surfing for now.
I am about 5'9" and 195-205 lbs depending on where the moon is. haha
I don't fall anymore.....mostly just snapping the crap out of the sides of the jumps or powersliding on both front and back edges. I'm loving it probably cause thats how i surfed growing up too.
Living in Monterey I am about 4-6 hours away from any action. I'm looking into Diamond Peak at Tahoe next.....or something, anything. Can't use my cousins gear though so I guess I'm gonna get some 32 Prime boots and go from there. My cousin's 32's (size 10) were solid and i felt like Ironman!! It was like the bindings and boots weren't even there.
