I mean in real life? Who here snowboards?

I for one do, and i love it.

and what would you say your skill level is?

1: gone a few times, can manage not to fall when going slow,

2: can make it down the hill but maybe not the easiest way,

3: you can carve, pretty easy for you,

4: you can carve easily, go off jumps, boxes's etc.

5: you can pull tricks with ease, 360's backflips, rails, etc.

I'm a 4, i want to become a 5 but it's a big step in between.

so tell me about you.

I wish I could, actually, but where I live there isn't a real good way to practice.

I don't, or can't. It never snows here. If it did, it would be considered a miracle. :(

It hardly ever snows in Texas.... And even if it did, we'd not have a decent enough sized mountain to snowboard on. I've skateboarded before, yeah.... Stance is mongo-regular. I keep hearing from people that if you've skateboarded before and are good, snowboarding's a walk in the park.

Never tried snowboarding. As my husband puts it, I can fall walking across flat ground, no need to give me something to help me along! ;) Looks like a load of fun, though. Too bad I'm 100% sure I'd break my neck.

I snowboard, well for about 4 years or more. But I didn't really get some time to go this year, but the snow up in Mt. Hood Meadows was pretty nice. But I'm looking to board possibly this month or march. I am at a 4 for now.

Maybe I'm doing one of the worst necropostings in history now, but I thought it was better than creating a new thread. :)

According to your skill levels, 4 I'd say. I rarely trick in the slopes or parks, though, as I rather go off-pist. On the clean mountains or in the forest, as long as it's a lot of powder. :D

I'm interested in knowing what boards other people ride. What made you settle for your board?

I ride a Bataleon Goliath 161W, 2010/11 model. I decided to get this one since I was really interested in trying Bataleon's Triple Base Technology, which really didn't make me disappointed. :) Love the artwork on this model as well, absolutely gorgeous. Wanted to try a rocker model as well, but since I haven't tried one before I went with a classic one, will probably rent a rocker in the future and try out though.

Image

Got some white Union Force bindings on the board, as well. Mostly because they still had them in stock when I was going to buy my new board (late in January this year), but people had recommended me Union bindings as well.

i do and i'd say i'm about a 3. goofy rider using the duck stance (+15/-15). i've ridden a couple boxes before but that's about it as far as my park abilities go. got myself a sweet little ride promise board a couple years ago and loving the difference a sintered base makes on my ride.

Oh, hell... I'd LOVE to be able to board! It's one of my life goals. ;P Currently though, no... I can kind of visualise myself automatically punching any rider who happened to come near me and screaming "KNOCK DOWWWN!"... So, it might be a good thing that I can't... ^^;

i used to ride a lot more than i do now. it was cheaper in high school. a season pass runs about 500 bucks for a university student. i ain't got that kinda cash!

i would def say i'm a 4. and i would agree with the original poster that there is a big jump between 4 and 5.

going every year since i was 12 and i still can't do a 360. oh well, i never really tried to be REALLY good. i do it mainly for the feel of it, less for getting tricky (though it'd be pretty awesome to be able to).

i ride a Rome Machine. wide stance, wide board (for my big ass feet), and tall enough to support me, but short enough to move easily.

burton bindings, 32 boots.

love it.

Some people say that you have to snowboard to play SSX so I say to them "do you have to be a soldier to play call of duty." :lol

I learned to snowboard this year. I can carve, but haven't really tried any tricks, so I'm at 3 for now. Practice, practice...

I've skied since i was 3 or 4 years old, and learned to snowboard when i was 10 or 11 after playing the first ssx.

I'd say i'm a 4, though i never really tried to get to 5; i prefer to do off-piste riding and dodging trees - makes me feel a bit like i'm playing ssx in real life.

(I ride a salomon special 2)

Snowboarded barely (2/3?) but not very into it.
For skiing I'm a 4, working on 5, though 'making it down the park' becomes significantly easier when you live in, say, the American Midwest.
I ski whenever I visit relatives in Canada or Utah though, and always get my ass kicked.
