I end up doing that a lot of the time.

Simply because when I ask if they can handle whatever terrain we're about to go in they "yes".

Then they can't, which sucks for all parties.

I have to ride slow & backwards & they flop around struggling.

I wish they would just say "No" in the first place.

Here is the guy that puts on slalom longboarding every Sat through out the summer.
He is a Machine.

He is also a snowboard & ski instructor.
This is him trying to learn, not switch riding, but riding the opposite stance.

This is the bunny hill as well.
Oh, & he is trying it with hard boots.

No point really, just kinda funny.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
