I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

What a weird day.

First, I decided to try getting to Seymour using Skytrain and the 028 bus. Of couse, skytrain died as soon as I got on board. The downage lasted just long enough to guarantee that I would miss my connections. So, I went the seabus route and took the Seymour shuttle from Lonsdale. Got there about 10:30, which wasn't too bad. It was pretty empty all day. I think I might have waited 2 minutes on the Lodge chair at one point, but that was the worst.

It was a nice day weatherwise, but the snow was basically snocones. I guess that's better than slippery cement. I went all over the mountain. I do find that I'm able to handle the steeps on Unicorn better. That may be coming around. I also continued to practice ollies. I did two perfect ollies while moving. I still can't duplicate it at will, but I'm getting closer.

The big thing for me was doing the flat-down box. Finally. I did it successfully two out of three times. The third time I reverse-tacoed on it. I also did a very short up-flat-down thingy in the Pit a couple of times. It's not a box, as it's too wide.

Unfortunately, towards mid-afternoon I began to feel crummy, so I packed it in a little early. By the time I got home I realized I was sick, and Friday was likely to be a no-go. As I type this, I'm sitting on my couch suffering from a stomach flu. Argh!

    I've thought about that flu since then, and I think I actually had food poisoning from the subway sandwich I brought up for lunch. I haven't had a subway since, and I used to love the things.
