Do yourself a big favour, take a lesson or a trip with Rui and his buds. They really, really get board culture. You will have a blast. No pressure, no attitude, just hangin' loose. Totally supportive and positive vibe for beginners. You will have the time of your trip and a memory to hold for life. If they ever head to Canada we're going to take our new friends snowboarding. Stoke for stoke.
