I started skiing at 4 years old and switched to snowboarding at 8 and have been at it for the past 29 years. I have ridden mostly in Oregon between Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Hood with stops in Utah, Colorado, and Montana along the way. I was a resort rider in my early 20s and spent most of my time in the park, then switched to steeps and powder, and 3 years ago switched primarily to splitboarding. I spent most my life in the mountains in my earlier years and am now going on a splitboard expedition a few days a week with some resort days mixed in.
I have been waxing and tuning snowboards for a number of years out of my garage and worked in retail selling snowboards for a few years. I am a gear junkie and spend a lot of time researching gear. I buy a lot of snowboards and ride for short periods before selling second hand, so have ridden a lot of different gear.
My current splitboard setup is a Jones Solution Split, Jones Nomad Pro Skins, and Karakoram Straightline bindings and also have a Capita Neo Slasher Split with Union Expedition bindings, and one of the first splitboard models that Snoplanks made. I am rocking the Burton Tourists for backcountry boots currently. For resort gear I have gone through a lot, but currently have 3 set-ups. K2 Alchemist with Union Atlas Pro bindings and K2 Thraxis boots. Yes PYL Uninc with Rome Katana bindings, and have the Jones Ultra Mountain Twin as my all-mountain stick with Burton Cartel X's on it. I have Adidas Acerra 3ST ADV boots that I ride all-mountain, but will upgrade those soon.
I prefer deep and steep but there isn't much that I don't enjoy riding and I'm happy anytime I'm on my board.
