Laughing because we get ‘snow’ maybe twice a year and it is usually that slushy stuff (and most of that seems to be yellow). We can’t even make snowmen!

Something I would have like to have done when I was (a lot) younger.

[Some of us older folk have to Google shred to make sure it isn’t a euphamism for something else :) ]

Wouldn’t a plank of marine plywood and some wellies super-glued and stapled to it be cheaper? :D

What make a board good though? Is it build quality or some other magic?

Build quality, weight, design.. There are different designs for every type of snowboarding. But generally you can use all of them same way. Some just have a different feel to them.

Nice one Witcheri! I used to ski downhill every year in my teens and later in life too; nowadays only when we get snow locally i.e. every second year or so. As an old fart I only use skis and not snowboard but I may try one day (to plaster manufacturer's delight no doubt).

Well if you try it... Just... Wear a butt protector. Saves youe tailbone. Also wristguards are good. Use them myself even though i have quite a bit of experience
