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.

I went up for a night session of boarding last night. Brought up my daughter and her friend. It was snowing like stink the whole time, which is just great of course. It wasn't a great night for learning stuff, although I had a couple of highlights. First, a couple of times I just spontaneously went into a butter spin, and didn't bite it. I can still only do frontside tailspins, but I think it's time to start practicing backside at minimum.

Second thing is that I started doing 180s on random side hits. It's pretty hit and miss (ba BOOM boom) but I'm getting it. And my frontside 180 is pretty routine on a properly set up jump.

What wasn't going well was my switch riding. I just couldn't get it. I think I need to spend some concentrated time on that. I'm just not good enough for it to be useful yet, and I want this to be more than just an item to tick off of a list.

Anyway, a couple of hours of riding is never a waste of time.
