I cant wait to get these!
Alright, soo when I was back in 8th grade, I joined by schools ski club. I thought I was goofy but after about 2 weeks of snowboarding I broke my wrist stopping, that was in 2007 I think.. I started snowboarding again in the 2009-2010 season. It was pretty rough at first, and I wanted to quit. My dad suggested I try riding regular. I tried it out and still kinda sucked. With the support of my dad and brothers I made it down 1 hill with out falling that day. We continued to go on Thursday nights with the school, then we would stay later (me and my brothers) and our dad took us home by 11. We ended up getting to snowboard more than anyone else in our school. We also had shredder cards which added another 7 days to our calender. After about 2 or 3 weeks I was shreddin' harder than I ever have, and harder than most of the boys in ski club. After about 4 - 5 weeks I was hitting boxes and jumps. I however, could only 50 - 50 and I only tried a 180 off of a jump like 4 times, stuck it twice, but it wasnt that good. We also built a ramp off of our roof, at home, and built boxes, jumps, cannons and pipes to sesh while we weren't at the ski resorts. That really helped to improve my skills. After snowboarding season was over I wanted to stay in shape so I could really step up my skills for next years season. I joined track and got on a diet, not to lose weight but to build muscle and bone density. I have continued to work out and excercise since track has been over. I also made a "tramp board" which is taking a skateboard deck and screwing straps from a belt for your feet and jumping on a trampoline practicing spins, grabs, and even flips. I'm super stoked for next season. I have Ride VXN bindings, Ride Scarlet boots, and I'm buying the Ride Fever 144 snowboard. I can't wait to sesh the slopes again, this seasons gonna be sick, and I'm gonna be shredding up the park.
I cant wait to get these!
I bought, these not too bad, first binding I bought on my own, pretty good choice, the toe - strap, is nice. Personally, I wish I would have bought the more exspensive VXN's its worth the money, trust me. Otherwise, these aren't too bad compared to other bindings I have had. RIDE makes really GOOD BINDINGS though, BURTON also has nice bindings.
2nd year in park.. I'm a pretty advanced female rider. have a brother thats bustin out 3's and seshin hard on jibs and rails. tryin to keep up. really need help pickin the perfect board to amp up my freestyle skills.
180 first year toward end of season. 50 50 and boardslide boxes.. but wanting to do more and make my own style.
