Have only been doing it seriously for one season but am really into it. Will be getting a season pass once winter rolls around - Am also getting a new board and bindings from the US to replace my secondhand board. I'm so excited - Getting a Neversummer Pandora with Rome Madison bindings. I'm so keen to really improve this year, especially witha season pass I can go as much as I like.
I'm hoping to improve a lot this year too.
My friend is coming along, and I find I have a lot more confidence when i'm with somebody, whereas when I'm on my own I'm just like "ok, don't fall...dont fall!"
I wish I lived somehwere where there was snowboarding...then I could buy a board, it's just too expensive to have to bring one on a plane.
I'm lucky that my boyfriend boards too. He is better than me, so challenges me to catch up, but doesn't push me to do scary things :] We live about a two hour drive from the snow so we can do day trips, which is great. We generally also go for a week or so to really get some good time in.
Once we are both better, we want to go to Japan to board... *drool* All that powder! We have really icy snow here in AUS and not much powder!
