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...

Saved my knees

I always had knee problems until I started using footprint insoles They fit perfectly in my snowboard boots and skate shoes. You inject water and they take the exact shape of your foot. I usually don't care about products but these things sderiously make a huge difference for me. Life savers

They have more videos up here - custom orthotic insoles

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 07:03 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...

2011-04-24 And that's a wrap.

Posted 04-24-2011 at 05:07 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

That's it. Season's over.

Took the car up this morning. It was totally dead first thing. Started to get slightly busy about 11:30, but never anything that would cause impatience in the line. The snow was hardpack at opening but softened up pretty fast.

I did some butters, some ollies and nollies, and some side hits. Nothing ambitious. Just trying to enjoy the last day.

Funny thing about the ollies. I made a concerted effort to do a few on each run today,...
