Alright, I'm in.. I do have new bindings, Burton customs. Supposedly not as good as the Missions though, so you know what? If I miraculously end up getting these, I'll pass mine on too.
Why do I deserve these? Cause if karma is true, I'm due some ridiculous good luck, man. I have the patience of a saint. My girlfriend has been boarding for 3 years, same as me. She's only been out of the bunny hill once - and promised never to go back haha. Every time we go together, usually night riding, I end up spending most of the time hiking up and down the hill holding her hands and trying to teach her how to do turns. Now I'm not gods gift to teaching, I'll admit that, but she has 0 coordination, balance or logical thinking. If we hadnt been together for 11 years already, I would dump her on her lack of basic understanding of physics. It's pretty incredible how someone can understand so little about how the world works. Gravity? Huh?
But I love her more than anything and despite the frustration, I'd gladly give up most of my days to spend time with her on the bunny hill <3
Edit: oh how about the time I agreed to sign up for a lesson with some work buddies? They both told me the had been boarding before, could do turns and stuff, so I figured I could use a refresher as it was the first day of the season and I thought I could finally try some blue runs.. Well turns out they had snowboarded once, years before. The lesson turned out to be pretty much what a first lesson would be and I was pretending to be worse than I was cause I felt bad for them. The instructor was so excited when I nailed my turns "first try"! Not to mention how impressed she was to see me following the other guys switch down the slope :P which was an accident by the way.. It was funny at the time, up to when they reminded me I had to pay 65 bucks for the lesson. Great..
