i was just wonderng how everyboy got in to snowbording? I am starting becaus i was inspierd by the Olimpics i love the mountines. I was aloso looking for a new sport to try i have prviosly tryed Rowing but I had to give that up due to uh weak hands (nuro musculer problem) Then i tryed fencing my weak hands stoped that too. so I was sitting there watching the olipics seeing these gus and girls doing amazing things on a bord (I will probaly never be THAT good)i liked how they all seemed to be together the styel and how much fun it looked as along time skiier (since I was 4) it seemed like somting i would enjoy so i booked a lesson and we will see how I go i will put up a video of my first lesson (part of it)so you can all laugh at how bad i am.

Well I've been into many sports since I were a lad, from football, table-tennis to gymnastics and eventually martial arts. I always wanted to go skiing with the school but it was too expensive and lost interest after a while. Then I saw snowboarding on the telly and said to myself "I'm gonna do that one day" and, in March 2007 I went to Bansko and done 3 days snowboarding on my own. I did have a 2 hr lesson booked with fischer who sent a kid in jeans and a woolly jumper, who was more interested in smoking fags and chatting to his mates who were also teaching beginners. I sacked him after an hour and a half and went with my mate that came with me who was a skier and could already get around but after much pain and determination I linked some turns by the end of the day and I was hooked, simple as!

Hi I have been a sport girl since I was born. The main reason for my sport live is my hometown which is based in the mountains, and the other important reason - my mom who's very active. Cycling, swimming, hiking... etc. I was doing with her everything when I was a child. She has also tought me skiing and I was doing it for almost 15 years! After this time, when I learnt to do it pretty well, I was bored.. It didn't give me that much satifaction which I wanted and of course I wasn't tired while skiing. I needed some adrenaline as well. So then, when I was in high school came first thought - "learn snowbording". I was lucky because the same year in my hometown they opened new ski slope which was about 5 minutes from house! So I started learing.. and first few times was hard, my legs hurt, my butt hurt, I was sweating and it felt so good! When I learnt how to turn right and left I started snowboarding on higher mountains. Anyway now - I have been snowboarding for 4 years now. I have never been taught by any teacher! I'm a self-taught in this sport I'm still not and expert and I'm sweating all the time, but I love it! I could say that my decision to learn this sport was one of my best decisions in my entire life. I don't like much winter, but the one of very few positive things about this time of a year is the fact that I can snowboard again! I have a dream that one day I will go for snowboard in the Alps

Easy answer! My employer kept refusing me holiday leave each summer due to project deadlines. So I had bags of holiday to use up every winter.
Helped that I was local to Tamworth at the time
