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.

Family night riding last night (Saturday night). It was raining, and the forecast wasn't any better for today. Not interested in riding in those conditions, especially on a weekend when it's crowded as hell, so I'm staying home today to ice my butt and my knee and relax. Tomorrow, back to work.

So, last night I was doing some tail manuals down Goldie and started to realize that I've been lifting the nose nowhere near what I could be. OK, so more practice. Just a matter of more lean and less squat, I think.

I mostly spent the evening working 180's. I'd start by hitting the rollers on Mushroom, then going down Chuck's and hitting that side hit near the bottom. Towards the end I was getting reasonably good, although I'm nowhere near done. A couple of times I was able to throw a FS 180 on the first roller and a cab FS 180 on the second. I also made a point of lifting off on the last roller whenever I could in order to desensitize myself to rollerphobia.

Not a bad night. Last one of my vacation. Kind of sad.
