This is nothing as interesting as the clips you guys have been posting. I was at Holly this Sat. and after catching an edge & bashing my behind, (of course I wasn't filming when I did that!) I decided to finish the last few runs of the day riding and practicing a little more of my switch riding.

I had seen a few guys doing 360 degree circles, spinning their boards around while moving down slope. I thought I'd give it a try. If nothing else, I thought it might help me focus on my edge awareness! Turns out, now that I'm not crashing every time I go toe-side while switch, this felt pretty natural!

(Camera is strapped to my L leg which is my lead foot riding regular. So View downhill is me riding "regular", views Up slope is Switch!)
