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.

Transfer from snowboarding.com (part 1)

Posted 05-09-2011 at 10:26 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

snowboarding.com is getting deader and deader, so I've decided to copy my old blog posts from there before the site shuts down completely.

New stuff!
Got some new stuff for the new season (well, new to me anyway). I bought a slightly used Ride Havoc and some not-used NXT-ATs. The board came with Burton Mission bindings, which I've removed and boxed. Guess I'm going to have to get rid of the Salomon CForce bindings. 4 sets of bindings for 2 boards is a bit...

Time to start organizing myself for next year. What, I'm not OCD or anything

First cut at goals for next year:

- Alley-oops - proper ones, with a nollie and 180 or 360 out.
- Be able to adlib tricks off side hits.
- Learn as many tricks as possible from the Youtube "29 ground tricks" vid.
- Be able to ollie and nollie at will
- All the butter variations
- pretzels
- Be able to ride switch on pretty much anything...

2011 Wrapup

Posted 04-24-2011 at 06:03 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

So, the season is over. Itís been a damned good one. Iíve improved more in this season than in both previous seasons combined. Of course, it was a good season weather-wise, and I already knew that when the snow is crap, I donít get ambitious with trying new things or aggressive riding. It was a long season, too: Nov 25th to Apr 24th. I also did 40 days this season, which is pretty good.

Iíve noticed that when Iím able to go boarding for several days in a row, I get more results...

Board serial number

Posted 03-13-2011 at 12:27 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I'm posting this entry just to get the image of my board's serial number on here. The recent report of a stolen board by one of the other members has me a little freaked.

Overreaction? Probably. Don't care.

2011-03-03 Minor notes

Posted 03-03-2011 at 10:02 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just a couple of updates...

Mystery was fixed yesterday (Wednesday), but we had a windstorm in the lower mainland so the entire mountain was shut down. If it isn't one thing, it's six things

And it doesn't look like we're going up Grouse this Friday. Wife is swamped with obligations and had to cancel. Oh, well.

It continues to snow, basically every. freakin'. day. Unless we get a heat wave, I think the season will be extended this year. Oh...
