The question came up about how did we get so passionate about this sport of snowboarding. To think back, and to think about it now, its never really been about the snowboarding for me. It started out as something to do with friends, and for the most part thats what its still all about. Sure i enjoy it more now than ever, but the funnest part of it is doing with my friends, because the stories you get to bring back are only good if you have somebody you can remember it with. These adventures lose a lot of their fervor if you’re the only one that actually experienced it. As much as you want people to know how intense an experience was, if they weren’t there also they’ll never trully understand what you mean.
