Better Late Than Never

Hi Skiboarders!

Early last week I took delivery of my Snowjam 75's and on Sunday I had the opportunity to try them.
I will turn 58 in a month and have been skiing on and off since introduction to the sport in my mid-thirties.
With my late start in skiing and infrequent participation, I never did advance beyond novice level, and
thought I would be relegated to those green and blue cirles forever. All of that changed on that Sunday
at Spring Mountain in Eastern Pennsylvania, where the two youngest of my three daughters and I
discovered this thing called a terrain park. My daughters are quite new to skiing and still apprehensive
about anything new or challenging, and they were on conventional skis. When they saw what I could do
with the skiboards, they relaxed and became much more bold just from watching me have a good time
on the Snowjams.
 
The skiboards actually improved their skiing, and they never even had them on. I believe Doc's
recommendation of the Snowjam 75's was a good one. I felt a little bit awkward at first, but balance came
quickly and was followed by a tremendous feeling of freedom on the slopes. I could maneuver much more
easliy and quickly, making small corrections here and there that I couldn't think of doing on skis. Jumps
and turns were no problem. I wish I got these earlier in the season. Our outing on Sunday was in fact the
last operations at Spring Mountain for the 2000-2001 season, and I have to say the three of us had a blast.
Thanks again to Doc and the rest of you at Skiboards.com for getting me started on this.

I purchased a pair of 90cm Salomon ski blades at the start of the season - I'm now a convert - and have
thrown away my skiis! As a 60 year old with some arthritis, these are the best thing for getting mobility
when long skis are too hard to turn. Thanks for taking the trouble to read this.

Your Skiboards Don't Know How Old You Are!

This phrase came to me today and it is quite relevant to us maturing skiboarders and skiers. For me
riding skiboards opened up a whole new world, no more bulky cumbersome equipment, no more worrying
about how to get down the mountain, pure freedom and fun. Yes, the fun. That is what life is about -
enjoying your life. Your skiboards don't hold you accountable for your age - they don't care. They just
want you to live your life to the fullest and be ridden by someone who is young in their heart. There are
no limitations on the person who rejoices in their life and is willing to try new things. The nice thing about
aging is that you just don't care what others think anymore. You realize this is your life to live and if you
want to ride your way and enjoy your day, then so be it!
