So I’ll go first! My name is Kim and I am one of the Mods for the girls section.

Where do you live? Sydney

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? Snowboarding light weight. Have tried surfing a few times… a lot of effort for what feels like little reward… Skateboarding… asphalt hurts - nuff said!

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park? Perisher

What made you join Boardworld? Jez convinced me I wouldn’t be an outcast!!

Tell us something interesting about yourself:  I am a skier on the outside, snowboarder at heart! </small>

Where do you live? Canberra

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? Snowboard only. Only tried skate as a kid and the ocean scares me, so no chance seeing me surfing!

What is your “home” mountain? Perisher

What made you join Boardworld? Saw an advertisement on facebook. Registered to be notified before the launch. Thought it would be rad to be able to talk to so many like minded people!

Tell us something interesting about yourself: More weird than interesting, but my favourite food is pasta and I will try almost anything on it! I absolutely love apple sauce on pasta and even a little bit of melted vegemite!

I’m h0z, aka Holly smile

Where do you live?
Sydney’s northern beaches

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf?
Snowboard, and attempt to skate (lol)

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park?
Mountain - perisher (mainly blue cow)
Beach - Narrabeen/Warriewood, and shelly (opposite manly) for snorkelling (I can’t surf, but will swim and body board occasionally)

What made you join Boardworld?
I wanted to find other people who like snowboarding as much as me, and already being in a car club/forum, and loving going on cruises.. I though that I would be a good idea to Google a snowboarding forum.. and meet some new people,

Tell us something interesting about yourself: I grew up as a massive Tom boy (most of my friends are guys still,) but I developed a really girly side and an obsession for anything pink or butterfly… lol


(Jenna, try tzatziki on pasta… (I was eating salad with left over pasta in it for lunch, and had tzatziki and carrot sticks for a snack,) and dropped a bit of pasta in the tzatziki, and damn was it good!)

Where do you live? Right this second, in the back of a van traveling across America, but apart from that it is Australia or Sweden.

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? Snowboard! As much as possible, I have dabbled in skating and still enjoy it but getting good requires too much pain for me to want to stick at it. And I surf…riding a mini mal or mal when the waves are small and mushy and a bodyboard when there is even a slight hint of the possiblity of a barrel.

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park?
Don’t really have a home mountain, I ride all over the place. Home beach would be Austinmer, NSW.

What made you join Boardworld?
Crackers joined up and told me about it. I’d just finished my first snow season in Sweden and had finished a little edit and he said they had a section for member videos!

Tell us something interesting about yourself:
I can speak a bit of Swedish and I am a massive baby name geek!

Hiya I’m Tambo
Where do you live? Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, Chill Hill to be exact

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? Snowboard, skier, so a bi-girl-of BW though skiing is pretty much in the past.

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park? Hotham, only 2 hrs away.

What made you join Boardworld? the whole crew really, as someone has to monitor the boys and the endless text messages!

Tell us something interesting about yourself: one regret is that snowboards weren’t invented earlier. smile

Hi! I’m Erin smile

Where do you live? Melbourne

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? I snowboard, tried skating in my teens and was useless at it!

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park? The closest mountain to me is Buller, but I dont really have a ‘home’ mountain.

What made you join Boardworld? Pretty much the same as Holly! Joined a car forum many many years ago and a music forum many years ago and made heaps of awesome friends with the same interests! Considering I dont really have many friends into snowboarding i thought I may as well join as snowboarding forum as well!

Tell us something interesting about yourself: I’m a little bit sports mad. I love football, soccer, rugby (league and union), and cricket. In my free time i run, play indoor soccer and snowboard (in winter). But my number 1 love is Formula 1. Have been to the last 4 Melbourne GP’s, went to the Japanese GP in Suzuka in 2010 and am heading off to see the Malaysian GP at Sepang in March next year.

Lovely ladies! Welcome! Xx

I’m Billy and I’m a mod of the BW girls section. Here’s a little about me!

Where do you live?
Melbourne

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf?
Snowboard! Love it. Nothing better riding alone or with mates, good tunes, mountains as far as the eye can see and crusing around with not a worry in the world! I dabbled in surfing, however Stephanie Gilmore and the like would be very unimpressed…

What is your “home” mountain?
Hotham… Falls too.

What made you join Boardworld?
To be honest I was so sick of trying to get my own friends to the snow (they would come but never really loved it like I did) - I had to ‘outsource’ and find some mates who have the same passion for snowboarding as me! (I promise I kept my old friends too :p ). Best decision, I love my BW buddies!

Tell us something interesting about yourself:
I’m famous - I once graced the cover of a Coles brand muesli bar box.

Super cool.  cool smile

Tobi

Where do you live? Melbourne

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf? Snowboard. Used to attempt to skate back in the day but I gave my deck away years ago now. I’d like to think that I can surf but in reality I can’t, it’s on my ‘to do’ list however living in Melbourne means that any decent surf is a fair drive away. I do SUP & kayak on a regular basis in summer though.

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park? Mountain - Hotham.
Beach - Either Elwood, South Melbourne or Sand Ridge for SUP/kayaking. Carrum for actually hanging out on the beach.

What made you join Boardworld? Jez.

Tell us something interesting about yourself: There’s not overly a lot interesting about Tobi. Between work, uni & snowboarding I don’t do a lot else. I talk about myself in 3rd person a lot and annoy people on facebook with photos of my garden.
