Meh - 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.

Well, today had all the cards stacked against it. There's been virtually no snow for the last week; there was a competition scheduled for today in Young Guns; I was "under orders" to keep the day short due to home commitments; and I'm sore from moving a ton of navvy jack yesterday.

But, snowboarding is snowboarding. So up I went. I managed to get 2-3 runs in on the jump line. They've changed it a bit again, gotten rid of the bottom jump to put in some street-style rails for the competition. The competitors were constantly using the jump line as well for warmup and such, so it was difficult to get a line in.

I did a side-by-side comparison with the Drift and Contour cameras. I fully admit the Drift is the favorite -- it would have to totally screw the pooch to lose this eval. And that didn't happen, so now I have to gather my Contour parts and sell the Roam.

I had a small revelation today, and I really don't know why it took me so long to make the connection. I've commented on many occasions that when the snow is crap I don't do as well or try as much. Well, it's been commented on the forum as well that when conditions are shit, you dial it back. So it's not just me, it's just common sense. Duh! OK, I won't whine so much about it.

Anyway, not much happened today. Left around noon.
