Great work, thats a hell of an effort for a one day course, you will be flying down the mountains in no time, welcome to the addiction, just an insight of what you are in for:


Night after night, weekend after weekend, going to the snowdome burning serious cash hour after hour.

I then went on 5 school ski trips as a teacher which left meusing my only holidays with 28 hour coach journeys with coaches full of teenage kids under my responsibility 24 hours a day for a seven day week. Exhausted isn't the word.

Expensive personal boarding trips to Europe whenever you can get a holiday when there is snow

Leave the country, friends and family to be nearer mountains, move to NZ and go every weekend and holiday

Get some second hand gear that you love because it is yours and wreck it

Buy some quality gear instead of paying mortgage

Take sick days off work to snowboard

Join a forum so you can talk to people about snowboarding when you aren't doing it

Learn to surf because its kind of like snowboarding for the summer

Seriously consider using your savings to go on an off season holiday in US or Japan when the 2013 season ends instead of much needed home renovations.....

AHHHH, it will change your life...... so worth it

Exactly...

I shredded two pants, one jacket, and one pair of mittens this season. Besides needing to replace those I bought two new boards this off season (Burton Barracuda & Antler), and while it's not broken I want to replace my helmet this season as I think I have had enough crashes and concussions to warrant a replacement...Buying all this has been higher on my priority list than saving up for a house down payment.

I worked a job where our boss knew if I called in sick my buddy would call in within 30 mins. Nice thing both our parents were military so we could go riding, go to the ER "sick," and our boss could do nothing about it because we had doctor's notes (fucked up but I didn't care).

Craving a Japan, AK, or NZ trip...all three are on my bucket list. Hope to do one 2014/2015, Tahoe trip is the next season.

As for surfing, I will be buying my first iSUP before the end of the summer.
