Thumbs up New from New Jersey

So I went snowboarding once and I'm hooked!

Can't really call myself a snowboarder yet lol, but it's going to be a lot of fun getting there.

I'm 28, young enough to hopefully withstand the many falls that snowboarding will bring, and hopefully I'll have a few good years of skilled, experienced riding at some point.

Thanks for all the great info on the forum!

Thanks! An addiction it surely is. Sure isn't cheap though I hope I don't have to end up going to Snowboarders Anonymous lol.

Yeah its expensive. Just remember to take good care of your gear and pray to the vengeful snow gods daily. Sacrifices of Wax, blood and skiers is always a bonus.

I'm definitely gonna take care of my equipment so it can last as long as possible.

Just ordered a Jones Mountain Twin and hope it lasts a decade! Perhaps not the best choice for a beginner, but I'm hoping (rather deciding) that this board will be the one. It definitely fits what will be my riding style (which I know from rollerblading - I like to cruise and jump over normal terrain [not on rails or in halfpipes], sometimes go a little fast but not super fast).

I'm looking at Burton Mission bindings, and yet undecided on boots since I want to order those at a store and all the nearby REIs don't seem to have much in stock based on their website.

Whatever I get I will treat it like it's made of gold!
