Just got back from Mexico tonight and wanted to do a post for you guys because it's been a while. I went to Puerto Vallerta with my girlfriend for a week and it was the best summer holiday I've had in a long time. We didn't do a lot...most days were spent drinking by the pool and smoking Cubans but we went in to the city a couple days and checked out the madness and our hotel restaurants had awesome food which we ate way too much of, anyway it was just what I wanted.
This is what i learnt to ride on when i was 9 years old, a 1992 Burton Air but obviously a differen't size, still looked exactly the same though. After this i was hooked and sold my motor bike to buy my first board, which was a 128 'A Snowboard' now APO and i think it was the first Kids twin tip ever made?, im trying to track one of these down now.
An old buddy from primary school just sent through these photos of me riding what looks like Coronet Peak back in the day. Im not sure how old i was here but i started riding when i was about 9 and i know this snowboard was the third one i ever owned and i remember i got it for Christmas. Definitely a Burton and it has a butterfly on it so it could be an old 'Feel good'.. the chicks model.. ha, anyway judging by the methods im about 12 years old. Cheers Damien for sending these through, some good times man..
