Thanks bro, if there was a such thing as old school mountainboarding in Costa Rica that would have to be it.

When I was younger and just getting into the sport we were always hiking aroundlooking for new spots, filming, riding in the rain, etc. Now that im older and it's just Raoul Duke and I and we are both married with kids we generally go to spots we know we can get some solid runs in, and long runs are tough to film. We really do need to get in the habit of sessioning short runs like in the old days as well as get out and explore more.

I love finding new stuff and exploring, still I know what you mean about making the most of the time you have. I'd love a head cam to catch some of the runs we hit. I'd just rather be riding than filming!

utilizar el traductor de google, del Español al Inglés hará sus cosas más fáciles de leer si no se puede leer en español.

no son tan malas pare empezar pero los trucks que trae no son tan buenas, mejor busca algo que trae trucks con resortes(channel trucks)como los del pro o de comp.

bienvenido a Surfing Dirt el mejor foro de mountainboarding en el mundo! Para contestar su pregunta bien necesitamos a saber su altura y peso. Y si hablas ingles va a ser mas facil porque la mayoria de los miembros hablan ingles pero hay algunos que hablan espanol.

Hay varios marcas de tabla pero para la gente de este lado del mundo yo recomendo MBS. Son muy buenas, dura mucho y mucho mas cerca a nosotros que los otros marcas como Trampa y NoSno. Si eres una persona liviana tal vez te sirve un modelo "Atom" pero son mas para chiquitos. Si es un adulta mediano/grande talvez te sirve mas un modelo "comp" o "Pro", son mas caros pero aguanta muchisimo mas.

Si no tiene mucha plata para gastar tal vez puedes consiguir una tabla usada por ebayo un sitio parecido y despues traerla por el medio de jetbox o aerocasillas y exonerar el paquete para evitar los impuestos aduanales.

Que lastima que ya no existe una tienda de mountainboard en costa rica, por eso va a tener que buscar afuera.

Sorry for my Espanish, Soy Gringo, No es mi Culpa!
