Rob Anderson

Name  Rob Anderson

Started riding in what year? Started snowboarding in 1984 (for real)

What snowboard related business activities are you involved in?  I officially do nothing professionally in the snowboard world right now!  (could change by winter). Former owner of Axis Boardsports, Brookfield and Norwalk CT.

Where did you grow up?  Grew up in Brookfield, CT then on to school in VT, then NH

Live now?  Live in Brookfield, CT now

Fave places to ride?  My friend Mike DeStasio's back yard park, (more fun than you can imagine) and a powder day anywhere.

Do you warm up each day before you ride?  I warm up with a cup of joe each day before riding, that's about it.

How keep in shape in season? I don't keep in shape at all, any time of year

Do you ever get bummed out about your riding, and why? At this point when I get a day to go riding, I am psyched no matter what, if your friends back out, or if its raining, or crowded, or icy, it is still the fact that you are on the hill with your board.  Can't complain much.

What safety equipt. do you  wear, use for snowboarding?  I now wear a helmet when I ride ( wish I had one a long time ago!)

What have you
read - Fast Food Nation
listened to - Bouncing Souls
seen - Family Guy
that you liked lately?

Where have you traveled to lately that you like? I love Maine, summer, winter, coastal, inland, wherever, I like it all.

Anything that not many people know about you that you would like to share? I am scared of the ocean

Encouraging words for beginners? Take a lesson!  Don't try to teach your girlfriend!  I have heard too many stories about that!  The best one was a girl who was telling me about how the year before her boyfriend who snowboarded, wanted to teach her how to ride, so he brings her to Mt. Snow, (VT) and tries for like 1 hour to teach her to ride on the bunny hill, then gets bored or frustrated, and goes to ride the mountain leaving her there to figure it out herself.  She is pissed off, but stays out there, floundering around.  She meets some nice guy who spends the whole afternoon with her and gives here some basics so she can make it down the hill on her own.  Then they have a drink, then she decides that old boyfriend sucks, he drives home alone and new guy gets the girl!

Advice you want to share? No advice, just have fun!
