||Two words that make your problems away: "Private Lessons." Try to find an instructor that suits you, you'll be in much safer, more qualified hands.

||If it was customary to kick a guy in the balls (extremely hard) every time they got caught stealing, theft would significantly decrease around the world.

|| I recommend speaking when you have tried them, then your opinion will actually be relevant.

|| The dual snowboards you mean? Well, i have a pair and they are fun to ride. They take some getting used to but they are pretty good for exercise and you get to do some new tricks and play around on them. They do work all-mountain though. They arent a major brand they are their own company.

||Imagine falling doing that trick

||k2 helmets are excellent. Very good padding and lining, price is reasonable for the quality. And they are fairly stylish.

||I have a great idea! Dont be cheap and get an actual lesson in the park instead of getting second hand summer time internet information that you wont be able to compute onto the snow. A live instructor can tell you exactly how to do it right, can watch you, and tell you exactly what you need to fix.

||It doesnt take much to break your wrist. If i hadnt been wearing my wrist guards this last season, i would have broken my wrist just coming of the side of a box a little early. I have had students damage their wrists by falls just a few feet. Imagine your wrist twisting at high speeds or getting trapped underneath your body on a messed up spin. However, knowing proper falling technique is important because your shoulders can take serious damage too

||Snowboarding... 300 to 500 a year on a new board and/or bindings. 2-300 on food and random clothing. At least 85 on my membership fees maybe more for clinics. 60 or so on goggles. 100 on sunglasses. Kinda just stops there. Maybe extra for conventions. I need to get some skis on of these days.

||If you want something that is slightly stiffer but not too much, check out the Park Pickle. I ride it in a 153, i weight 135-140 (depending on if i work out or not) and im 6'0. I can press the Park Pickle easily but its not noodley by any means. The Rome Pusher is similar in flex and is also a good choice. Your weight could handle a 153 like a smaller board would for me.

||Due to your weight, the difference between the 147 and the 150 for performance wouldnt be too great. However, the 150 will be more durable and stiffer. Not too stiff, but you are less likely to break it or have the edges crack from over-flexing. If you are looking for something other than a straight jib stick at least kick it up to a 153. A board that length can perform all over the park and just depends on what board you get.

|| Actually the fastest was an 1 hour and 46 (or close to that) second place was 1 and 54 for that day. I saw both guys come in while i was doing my rounds at the base.

|| I worked at the one at Snow Valley this weekend. It looked like a lot of fun. According to most of the competitors and regular TM employees, it was the hardest Tough Mudder so far (especially since it snowed on the second day) and most of the Military guys said, on a scale of 1-10 for difficulty, it averaged about an 8 or 9. They had many cases of hypothermia because of the cold weather, 10-20 degrees up top, and many more people quit part way through instead of finishing the course.

||A cop can pull you over pretty much anything. They have an entire manual that lists all the small "fix it" ticket reasons and infractions that a cop can pull you over. Hell i got in a hardcore argument with a local sheriff in my small town. The dick gives me a ticket for a cracked window when i was in the grocery store. I never saw his face just saw the name on the ticket.
