    this is going to hurt :D

    just put up the clams for one of these

    Yeah, can't wait. While I prefer FS tele/skiing to snowborading the complete lack of snow in London does make practice a little difficult.

    Haven't checked the content - may be some F@&*ing foul language.

    cheers dude - I'm looking at the video camera right now - this could be interesting

    never was any good at skateboarding but I picked up snowboarding in a couple of hours (SHOW OFF ALERT) linked turns the first run after learning edge control and was spinning by day 2.

    cool!

    Have you ever checked out mountainboarding? Like the board you posted, but a bit beefier and with large pneumatic tires. Very fun.

    lol - thanks for that vote of confidence - get some bloody mary's down your neck.

    forum rider - I've already got a nosno FS board with agency bindings to match my snowboard. Haven't used it much though - not having a brake makes me a little nervous. Hopefully I'll get more mileage from the freebord

    oooooooooo!

    I want one, but my parents said it's too dangerous. Even worse than mountain biking(or so they say...).

    markhr, if you want, my friends had some stickers that say "Die Faster!" on them. I think they may be appropriate for your new board

    watch the clips - the thing that sold me was having edge control and slide. Carving AND braking aren't a problem.

    I'm a snowboarder and those look incredibly fun. And also incredibly dangerous. Falling down would hurt.

    What about "Stop" is unclear to these people? If he'd slammed into that big black SUV, would it be the driver's fault?

    yeah - you really wouldn't want to catch an edge without protection - I can see a dainese or 661 investment - getting expensive

    some riders in WA state found what looks like the perfect location - gated (private?) isolated road with no traffic
