2012-01-27 Second-best 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.

2012-01-27 Second-best day

Posted 01-28-2012 at 09:37 AM by Donutz

OK, Friday wasn't quite as sunny as Thursday, it didn't have quite as much snow, there was a little bit of fog, and so on. Still, it was a damned fine day. Continued to work on the Mushroom park features, continued to work on my 180s off that side hit on Chuck's, and continued to work the rollers in Mushroom. I still can't quite get 180s off the rollers, but that's just me being reluctant to commit. I've started the smallest bit of shifties on the flat box, and I'm probably just about ready to go into a boardslide.

The smaller jump on Northlands is mellowing to the point where I'm seriously eyeing it now. The street-style box was rebuilt by the park crew to be just a little too big for me. I'll either wait until they rebuild it smaller, or I'll do some adjustments myself.

I slid out on Unicorn early in the day and banged my tailbone again. Fuck that hurt! I think I'm going to be avoiding steeps until that heals.

I did a whole day worth of useless recordings on the Roam. Lens was blocked by snow. The weird thing is I'm sure I was reaching up and wiping it off during the day. I may have to take off the helmet to check it occasionally.

We went to Metrotown for a while last night, and I checked out goggles at the Oakley store. The Airbrake series looks awesome! The release mechanism for the lenses looks easy and quick. I've made broad birthday-present hints. And at Atmosphere, I found what I think is the perfect face cover. It's a balaclava with enough stretch in the lower face part so that it can be comfortably pulled down below the chin.

So, session tonight with the family then a full day tomorrow, then back to work.
