I don't think Dave really concentrated on jibs either until a few seasons ago. You're in your second season and in all honesty, we might as well call it your first season since you barely rode last year. You're progressing at a very fast rate
I'm getting old man! I gotta progress quick to get the most out of the time I have left.

Never really too old to start. I rode for years without doing anything other than straight airs and a few grabs, maybe the occasional 50/50. Last year is when I decided to improve my park skills. It is a slower learning curve as an older guy, but you can still do it!

Yep, and I will I'm sure.

I'm pushing 35 here in a couple days so I figure I've got a few years to play in the park and maybe 5-10 years to freestyle the hill before I'll settle in for just cruising the mountain.

You guys already have those years under your belt and have lots of time ahead of you.

Well, okay not THAT much more time than me. None of you are spring chickens

I'm going to be hitting streetstyle rails with my kid(s) when I'm 50.

Please don't. Despite the constant jabs I take at you, I really like having you as a friend... especially as a riding buddy. Let's keep it that way till beyond 50.

Long story short, get that out of your system right now.

If I'm still hitting rails at 50 I'm pretty sure I'll still be snowboarding. Or are you afraid I'll kill myself?

That thought was too macabre for me. I was thinking more along the lines of a serious rail fail to the point where you'll become a boring riding buddy. You're my progression motivation dude!
