Some stuff - 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.

Some stuff

Posted 11-16-2012 at 12:32 PM by Donutz

Just some observations and comments, while hopping from foot to foot waiting for the season and the snow.

1. Snow
The snow-forecast predictions are looking good. The predicted snow dump moved from Wednesday to Friday, but it's predicting snow right off the end of the 6-day forecast. There's a period of rain or two, but that keeps fading in and out. This is really going down to the wire though.

2. Last season
So I've been bitching and moaning about the poor season last year and how I didn't get anything done. But last night I reviewed all my Contour vids (as part of my hopping-from-foot-to-foot protocol) and it turns out I actually did advance quite a bit last year. My park abilities improved hugely (from zero ), my carving, balance, and control improved, and my aggresiveness improved -- although mostly in the last month. So no more whining, eh.

3. Based on this, couple of additions to my goals for the season:

a) Get over myself.
b) Be more concerned about having fun.

4. On a slightly different subject, I've found a local gymnastics club that will give private trampoline lessons. Have to arrange schedule with the wife, but I'm going to go for it. Can't hurt, unless I fall on my head.
