I didnít know they made fog that thickÖ
Went up the mountain Sunday morning. The fog was so thick (HOW THICK WAS IT??) that I couldn't see the ground from the chair. But I could hear the occasional skier or boarder down there saying "Where's the f***ing ski run?"

Eventually, the fog started to lift, but then it started to rain for real. Yee-freakin'-haw. Oh, well. Even a bad day of snowboarding is better than nothing.

Transfer from (part 1)

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

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

- 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

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...
