Been reading the forums for a good two years now and just recently bought my own setup so I figured I'd say hi.
I've been riding for 4 years after my cousins took me to Wisp and have been addicted ever since.
I've always rent but recently bought a '11 168cm Nidecker Platinum, Flux DMCC, and Flow Talon boots. Really excited to try it out.
The reason for 168cm, i really like longer board also I'm 6'3" 185-200lbs with a size 13.
I never go to the park always have just bombed runs and random jumps.
Usually snowboard in Southern PA (Roundtop/Liberty), or at Wisp in Western MD, really trying to get to Snowshoe though.
Thanks, just now need info on waxing a tuning this thing. The metal edges are very weird, like serrated every 3-4 inches.
