Default STOKED! Rang out the New Year catchin' my 1st Air!!!!

THIS SPORT ROCKS!!!!!! It wasn't much, It wasn't extreme,.. but it WAS air! And I stuck it more times than I biffed! (about 65-35%) It felt FREAKIN' AWSOME!!!!

I got some kinda crappy video of it. If I can figure out how to post it here, I will!!

I wanna thank Snowolf for his vid clips. I skimmed a few of them and his advise on setting up stance and"charging" the takeoff made it possible. (I had no idea how to give that a try previously)

I also clocked my fastest speeds on the hill yesterday. Jumped from 18-18.75 mph fastest, to 24-25.5 mph!! Felt GOOD!! (...of course, now I'm in the realm of speed where losing it could REALLY get me hurt!)


Thanks again Snowolf!! (Hope your enjoyin' the Big Blow in Oregon!!)
