Anyone else have this problem?

Ive tried listening to music while skateboarding and snowboarding and it just doesnt work for me, I like/have to hear the sounds of my wheels going up ramps and have to hear my board on the snow and going across rails and what not. The music more throws me off then help me out. Its almost like I am lost going down the hill without the sounds of the snow. (almost like im blind) it's that crazy, Gotta be a mind/focus thing.

Lightbulb Half Way

I revel in sick tunes while riding. But lately I keep the volume at half way so I can leave it on while talking. Plus if someone shouts at me I'll hear em'

same here.. I can't possibly focus on music and at the same time do something decent on a bike or board. But it also depends on the music: stuff that requires serious active listening to really enjoy it (think complicated metal/classical/...) takes all my attention so it is logical I can't do anything else (well except dance to it); 'easier' things like techno etc can fade away to the background and let me focus on something else (in fact at the same time yielding the entire point of listening to the music pointless as I hardly notice it's there anymore)

I know other people can actually get away with this much better, but then again I'm more of an all-or-nothing focus type of person, sort of at the edge of autism sometimes.

I use the music to get me pumped up, but i'm really good at blocking it out also. I can read books and write perfectly with music on.

I would never want to listen to music on the slopes, for one I love the sound of being up in the mountains snowboarding, I can listen to music anytime. Secondly I think sound is an important part of your awareness when snowboarding, you can hear if you hit ice for example or hear the people around you. I have seen guys wearing earphones cut off people and not even know it cause theyre in their own world.

you definitely need to be more aware when listening to music, or this will happen. Always looking over your shoulder is vital.
