2011-04-03 Switch riding day - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
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.

2011-04-03 Switch riding day

Posted 04-03-2011 at 11:21 PM by Donutz

Today on Seymour, the theme was fog. Not the worst day ever, but bad enough. Having been through this a few times, I didn't even try to get creative with the upper runs. I tried the jump on Northlands once, just to remind myself how much I don't like jumping when I can't see the landing.

So, the rest of the day was spent on Chucks, practicing switch riding. And I spent a lot of time practicing switching direction as well. I've started practicing the technique from the vimeo vid where you swap lead foot on each half of an S carve. A little tentative, and no style at all, but it's a start.

It's obvious that the season is winding down though. The park features have been totally taken out of Mushroom, and about half of them have been taken out of Northlands/the Pit. So the rest of the month is probably going to be spent fine-tuning what I've learned this year.
