Lol, switching boards won't automatically make you go from regular 1's to switch 5's ... come on man. It's how many times you're out there practicing them. But good for you for shooting high.
I have so many goals for this winter it'll be hard as hell to not check off at least one. I'll be riding the most I ever have in a single season this year, so the constant time on the snow should really help things out (since we don't have anything good enough to hit around here unless you want to go up 3 hours). Besides progressing in park and just generally hitting bigger features, I'm really looking forwards to trying some back country stuff, since we don't get that here. Ah this'll be exciting.
