2011-11-26 Goals for the season - 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.

2011-11-26 Goals for the season

Posted 11-26-2011 at 05:54 PM by Donutz

I did this back in May, but now that the season is starting it's time to come up with a focused list.

In general, by the end of the year I want to be able to:

- Hit moderate jumps (20-30 feet) at will.
- Do 180's and 360's of jumps
- Do some ground tricks, such as 180's, pretzels, butters, maybe even an mfm butter.
- Finish off stuff from last year, such as switch riding, and ollies and nollies
- work a lot more with moguls and rough terrain.
- Be able to handle any run on Seymour.
- Be able to do basic park features. Even if I only ever do 50/50's, that'd be fine.

That's a fairly modest set of goals, and should make me into a well-rounded rider. I also want to learn some specific tricks, but I'll pick those up from vids as I go. I also want to make sure that I do one "Discover" group lesson and at least one private lesson this season.

Lastly, I want to hit at least two of: Whistler, Hemlock, Cypress, Baker, this season. A little variety would be a good thing.

    I like your list. I may have to borrow some of it for myslef. And if you're going to learn any specific trick before the rest, pick the Method. It's timeless, and super stylish to boot.
