Best of luck with the campaign, @chadillac75621. Looks like a cool spot!

Whereabouts in Seattle is it? I might have to check it out next time I’m there (which is in a couple of weeks).

                        i am new in the forum .And i am from Melbourne Australia Market Place . I am here for tell about out market place store .

Hillo, I am Kuma of Mizu!!!!!

Telling for me market place story!!!!!

 

Hey Everyone!

I’m Shades and I’m 28 years old from Melbourne, Australia. I got bitten by the snowboarding bug a couple of years back in 2015 on my first snow trip to Mt. Buller with my mates…I took me 3/4 of a day and a really sore backside to finally get the hang of it but I have loved every second of it!

Since then I’ve been hitting the snow over in Queenstown, NZ and most recently Blue Mountain, Ontario. I’m so keen for a session over in Whistler and Japan is also an absolute must for me.

When I’m not working on my turns and shredding the powder I’m bodybuilding and working full-time in the Telecommunications industry as a Security Consultant. I’m hoping to enter my first competition this year and finally step on stage! I’m also interested in photography.

I’m excited to join a community made up of such awesome people and look forward to getting to know you all.

Finally, here are some pics of me:



My Current set up. Photo was taken at Mt. Buller last year.



I also enjoy falling out of aeroplanes… LOL



I didn’t make that snowman.


Cheers!

Hi All!

Well time for me to say hi. I’m Kylie and got hooked on the snow yonks ago after a random visit to Canada 15 years ago when I was 17. But only got my first new complete set up last year from boardworld best decision ever.

I joined the girls day back in 2015 and met a bunch of awesome people from boardworld last year! One of the best trips to the snow ever. I’m definitely keen to shred with them again.

I’m not the best on a board but I love just getting out there and trying to improve each year.
I’m finally planning to be a snow bum this year. Found myself a kombi and planning to explore a few new places.

Some of the crew from a trip to Perisher last year.

A pic from Igls, Austria. I was sick as a dog but figured what better way to get over it then going for a ride and drinking mulled wine.

See you all at the snow!!!

Hi Boardworld,
Adrian here, mid 30’s and from western Sydney.
I singed up to BW for the graphic design and guess and win comps and found this a great place for information, I’ve learnt so much clicking through different threads.
Ive only been boarding for a few years but have been back every year since I was able to!
I learnt on a quick weekend away at Mt.Selwyn with some buddies, had a few days at Perisher the following year, and then booked a week in Thredbo the year after with the wife and kids to introduce them to my love of snow. We all had an awesome time and that holiday will be one to remember forever. We had freshies everyday! one day up to 50cm!, the kids picked it up like naturals, night skiing.. we even met Torah bright in the village.

We have been back to Thredbo every year since, but this year I pulled the trigger on a perisher epic pass.
Planning on being there most weekends this season and even thinking about Whistler next year on the same pass.
Looking forward to meeting some of you guys over the season !

Thanks for the intro, @adr10n. I won’t say “welcome to Boardworld” because I know you’ve been a part of the community for a while now. wink

Stoked to hear the family is hooked and enjoying their time at the snow. We have a little one on the way in a few weeks and I can’t wait to teach “it” (as we’ve been calling him/her, haha) how to snowboard.

You should totally make it over to Whistler next season. Would be great to catch up! 🍻

Hey Boardworld people,

My name is Tristan,

I have been lurking for a while now but finally got around to setting up an account!

I am from Hobart, Tasmania and currently the snow buyer for Hobart’s only snow store. I’ve been snowboarding on and off since 98’ and love snowboarding, mountains and a self confessed gear whore,always frothing on new boards and gear!

I also bodyboard and have been since 94’. Tassie is an awesome place for boog waves with lots of wedges, reefs, points and beachies- just bloddy cold.

I used to skate quite a bit, but only cruise on my longboard now due to too many injuries!

My wife and I have a 4 month old son who I am looking forward to sharing the stoke and froth of snowboarding surf and skate with!

Cheers and here is to a great 2017 snow season in Oz!  shaka
