    I saw a couple snow flakes today and got so stoked for snow boarding. Just wanted to see who else on here likes to get shreddradical.

    You rode a 160? How tall are you? I ride a 153, and Im 6ft, I like smaller boards though, easier to throw around.

    I would definitely love to try it, but Indiana is as flat as Paris Hilton.

    I'm a skier, but either way, I was thinking the exact same thing today. Where do you go? Boston Mills/Brandywine?

    Its not too hard. Kristin has been boarding for 2 years and last year I talked her into doing some small rails in the terrain park, and at the beginign of the first year she couldnt even make it down the hill.

    i suck ass at it (i can go left bad ass, but right... lol more like right on my ass :D ) but i still try to get out there a couple times a season.

    didn't have much snow last year, and didn't go out at all.

    I need to get out there this year for sure.

    I got an old school (circa 94) burton ouiji board

    I ride a Lib Tech T-Rice pro (06 model yr I believe)
    Burton custom bindings
    Burton freestyle boots

    Love my setup.

    B, you have quite the collection lol. How long you been riding?

    I am out every weekend from the end of Nov till March. Can't wait - the local hill is slated to open Nov 22nd if they can get cold enough nights to make snow.

    Current gear:

    165cm Ride - Yukon board (i'm 6'4 280lbs)
    K2 Cinch pro bindings - I LOVE these (fold down backs)
    Vans Contra BOA boots
    Ride snow pants
    Burton Gloves
    columbia jacket
    spy goggles

    don't spend much time in the parks but love crusing the runs.
