Hello all, I've been a frequent visitor of the website for a few years now and would like to thank everyone for providing their wonderful trip reports. I never had much to contribute or post as I live several hours away from the nearest resort, but I hope to change that as I'm making more and more trips to the slopes.



I'm in my mid twenties and have been snowboarding for several years now at every major resort in North Carolina and Tennessee as well as a few out west. I just got a set of skiboards, because I just love to be different. I look forward to trying them out for the first time at the 2011 SkiNC Beech Mountain Summit this weekend with the hopes of bringing something a little different to the Southeast ski areas.



Regards,

LoL. I didn't know what they were, so I looked it up:

Sounds like a dandy good time! I'll just stick to snowboards though! Better selection. LoL.

"From 1998 to 2000, skiboarding was part of the winter X Games on ESPN. This helped to promote the sport and bring it to its peak. In 1999, Rick Stark started the World Skiboarding Federation (WSF) as a sanctioning body for skiboarding and the United Skiboard Series (USS) as a competition series for skiboarders. The goal of WSF, according to its presidents, Mark Billik and Rick Stark, is to be an organization that is "run by the industry, and its people, with the sole purpose to help our industry grow in a healthy and successful fashion." The WSF’s rules stated that all skiboards must be under 100 cm."

thats admirable....you may seriously want to look at monoboarding as well.



I am a big believer in function over form. Since I could have the nicest stuff money could by and still look like a fool, it makes not difference to me how lame I look. My "ski pants" came from Fred's and consist of waterproof pants and a separate layer of pajama bottoms. works like a charm for less than 10 bucks. My poles were 2 dollars from goodwill. my ski bag also came from a goodwill type store and I got it for 5.



And if you want a good laugh read about my camera mounting adventures. It probably looks incredibly stupid but it works.



It's all about fun.
