One thought on “Ten Snowboarders

  1. Very thorough list, I’m guessing that snowboarding is your something you enjoy doing? Do you enjoy tricks, cruising or racing? I’ve got to admit, I am impressed everytime I see snowboarding either on T.V. or live, the tricks they do are amazing! Everytime I go snowboarding I manage to hurt myself, but it sure is fun! Keep up the great work on your blogging!
