I miss winter :(

Sounds pretty crazy, but since I started snowboarding, I actually enjoy the winter months. Maybe even more than summer.

I just feel totally free when I'm on the hill. I forget about all my problems, and just feel the board carving in the snow.







Dangit! Why can't it start snowing outside??

Took my kid up for the first time last season. Can't wait 'til I can start taking him all around the mountain. And, just to clarify, I prefer the snow. I can do without the winter.

I miss NTWC, the night time wrecking crew.

That was hella fun, and we even made a jersey for it.

Winter? We don't have winter in the bay area. But I do know that coldness causes ball shrinkage, and if it "freezes", "it" could fall off. So I think I'll stick to my sun.

You need to get a movie camera and a buddy and make the winter version of Endless Summer. Follow winter around the globe snowboarding, film it and get rich. Be the next Warren Miller.

Great picture! And I understand about the snow/winter...but around here, it's kind of hard to have one without the other.
