Great news.... after two weekends of trying/failing on landing a tamedog. I landed my first tamedog on my first attempt today. It felt amazing.

My local ski hill (Canada Olympic Park), is only icy groomed runs, so I usually get pretty banged up after each attempt. But today they had a nice roller section, and it was a bit warmer too; making the snow a bit softer.

Now I just need to figure out how to land it again. After landing it today. My next 7 attempts I under rotated. and the 8th attempt I over rotated (super scary on a groomed run). All I can remember, was during my first attempt today I had a really good nollie, and it felt like I was spinning in super slow motion.

Also props go to snowboardaddiction, their getting up side down video helped me alot on this trick. Super stoked about landing it today.
