2011-01-27 Ups and Downs

Posted 01-28-2011 at 03:01 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

What a weird day.

First, I decided to try getting to Seymour using Skytrain and the 028 bus. Of couse, skytrain died as soon as I got on board. The downage lasted just long enough to guarantee that I would miss my connections. So, I went the seabus route and took the Seymour shuttle from Lonsdale. Got there about 10:30, which wasn't too bad. It was pretty empty all day. I think I might have waited 2 minutes on the Lodge chair at one point, but that was the worst.

It...

I did manage to get to Seymour last night. It was a cruddy night, with a constant light rain. I did one run down Mystery and that was enough of that. Went to the bunny slope to do techniques.

Frontside tailpress butter spins are coming along, although as Nev says in the vid, don't expect to be the king at it overnight. I tried a backside spin once, but it didn't go well. No biggie, just need to spend time at it.

Also continued to work on ollies while moving. It's interesting...

Forum Young Blood DoubleDog

Posted 01-25-2011 at 07:11 PM by park_rider

Anyone got any experience on the YoungBlood DoubleDog? Looks like a sick board with some camber tech similar to Never Summer and LibTech. Graphics are dope too.



I really love Forum boards.

Never Summer SL-R

Posted 01-25-2011 at 04:28 PM by park_rider
Updated 01-25-2011 at 04:34 PM by park_rider

If all the Never Summer Evo's are sold out by summer, should I just get an SL-R to use in the park or should I look for another board that's a little more "park oriented"? Im looking to do everything from boxes to rails to jumps, bonks, and halfpipes, and I'll be in the park about 70%-80% of the time. What do you guys think? Basically I'm just asking if the SL-R is gonna shred the park and will ride well switch? Any input?

Ruminations

Posted 01-25-2011 at 11:22 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

My daughter is sick today, so I'm staying home instead of going up the mountain. Wife will be home about 4, so I'll go up then hopefully. Just have to play up the guilt a little.

So, looking at my goals for the year, I'm way ahead of schedule. The only item that I have yet to work on is moguls. Unfortunately the only mogul run on Seymour is Joel's Flight, which is pretty steep for learning something like that. Oh, well, still almost 3 months of season left.
