Snowboarding
#11
Everyone things surfing is like snowboarding too.
Infact its not. Surfing is all back foot drive & snowboarding should be all leading with the front foot, however you watch 90% of boarders & they slide the back foot round when they turn, I do it too.

for boots its a case of trying them on, sounds obvious but like most shoes companies tend to suit one person more than another ie wide feet ext. other thing is they make them in different stiffness Wink park boots being more flex in the ankle or for big country off piste or boots to ride riding the sloops tend to give more support stiffness around the ankle.  so if your after an all rounder there be something in the middle.
so I wouldn't even think brands to much, more what fits you best and feels right.

I can highly reccomend getting some custom foot beds made for your boots, i have them in my ski boots and they have made a massive difference to comfort and control and helped to reduce heal lift in my old boots. Got mine done at Captains Cabin in Canterbury.

How are the lessons coming on? I've been tempted to give boarding a try, but being a competant skier, i'm not keen on being a complete noob on the slopes again not able to get down the greens without sitting on my arse or face every 5 seconds! I'd imagine learning at Gillingham is a bit hurty, i'd much rather learn on an artificial snow slope.

Haha yeah i always see boarders falling on their asses from the chair lifts so i imagine ass protection is essential! You ever tempted to wear your full face too lol? I might give it a go one day. I still really enjoy skiing, but fancy trying it as a change.
