As a 21 year boarder this is true forever... I've said it many times on this forum but I fall EVERY DAY. Maybe one day I'll reach the point that I feel like just cruising around sightseeing on the blues and greens but until I'm 70 I don't see that happening!!!

Push yourself every day you're on your board, scare yourself a little, adrenaline is a beautiful thing to have coursing through your veins! Just make sure to scare yourself within reason.
