Default Tips on how to go Ricky Bobby fast




So yesterday i went to camelback for my usual "cruising" down the blue trails until i saw another boarder go down the double black diamond. I decided to check it out and did my cruise until i got somewhere around halfway down the steep and decided to point the board straight down...ducked down as far as i could comfortably go and I noticed myself that throughout the bomb down, i was leaning/sitting back on my heel edge instead of trying to flat base it. For you speed demons out there, when pointed straight down, are you flat basing it or leaning towards an edge? The day ended when i think hit a too big of a bump and cause me to land forward and somehow landed on my elbow and slid down for a good 7 seconds (little sore)

As far as the 77mph... Idk exactly how accurate ski tracks is, but i would probably believe it more if it said in the 60s... But it sure wasna bit scary haha
