Hey guys, my name is Ben and I've been snowboarding in the New England area since I was a kid. I've been riding a 2005 Ride Theory board for the past 5 years and a pair of Burton Mission bindings. I've never had any complaints about my setup (all I had to compare it to was rentals), but I finally got a big boy job so I just bought a bunch of new equipment to use next season.

I am super excited about all my new gear and I have been thinking a lot about going out to Tahoe this upcoming season. This forum has been super helpful for figuring out exactly where I want to go and what I want to do so I decided to become a member.

I hope I'm not the only one who has been daydreaming all summer and spending money on toys that I won't get to use for months. Hit me up if you have any suggestions for how to distract myself until the winter comes.

I'm really interested to see how the new equipment affects my boarding.
i prefer to see how alcohol affects my boarding. with the right amount i found out i can bomb double blacks w/moguls no problem. coincidently a drop more, and i nearly dislocate my shoulder on flat greens.

The key is to be just slightly buzzed. Anything more than that and it turns your looseness into sloppyness. :dizzy:
