Magnum626 I love reading your posts. It's just inspirational man. I'm 42. I lost about 35 lbs in the last year and half. I think I might have to pony up for some body armor and starting hitting the park more. I've crashed into a tree, dislocated an elbow and separated a shoulder snowboarding. And 4 years ago I fractured and dislocated my ankle mountain biking. As we get older it seems we're doing things that keep us younger in my opinion.

Sending good juju your way to you and your family. Can't wait to see what goals you strive for and reach next season.

Oh and Chomps! Hope to see you riding again soon.

You get a rooftop Rosario Dawson dance.



And a serious applause.

I know that feel. I'm in a sheepshead league with 80+ other people, and I'm the youngest by ~30 years (I'm 29).

I actually enjoyed the few yoga classes I took some years back. (...baggy sweats. No YP's for me either!) It was geared more towards senior citizens tho. lol (...at 50+ I was the youngest one there by a wide margin!)

Be careful tho! Last class I took at the gym? The instructor sucked ass. It was billed as a beginner class, but She wasn't helping any of us that were obviously new and clueless. I tried to get by just watching and copying the others. Ended up pulling the crap out of a hamstring and limped for a week!

slyder Matty_B_Bop Yes I do get it and it could stick. I will also keep my word to not use "hoot" anymore. The *Cool Uncle* shouldn't say that word your correct.

I enjoyed working with Shay and I hope I was helpful and that she has a great time on your trip.

If TJ keeps progressing you'll have to coach the both of us.

I was gonna add more vids of Mt Bohemia and some other stuff but my puter is old and slow like me. Takes way to long to do just the little I did. Plus most of it is POV and that isn't that exciting. I was going to add my snowboard surfing behind the snowmobile but like I said the puter is slow and that was a big clip to load and edit down.
I do have you eating it on the battleship though

I'll text ya and we can plan on something to do over the summer

Matty_B_Bop Awesome season, Uncle Slyder!

Since you're way older than me, I'm now considering you an uncle. You know, kinda like when your dad has a best friend that you knew growing up, and even though he wasn't blood you considered him family. Bad analogy since you don't even know my dad, but I think you get it.

Shay and I had a blast with you. Shay was very appreciative of your help and guidance in her first season, especially when I was in rage mode. JK. But some of you may know what's it's like teaching a significant other.

Anyway, we have plenty to work on next season for you. I'll help you with your 3s and switch, and I'll make sure to keep pushing you on those rails. Also, I'm going to have to tell TJ to how to properly take a video. Get off that portrait mode, brah!

Now it all makes sense as to why you were constantly recording. I liked your video collage.

Season may be over, but et's hang this summer and plan some trips for next season.

I'm waiting for the post that your back on the board
Sick season, only see a few ol' dudes hittin' features where I ride and they are usually super good or just hit the approach ramps as jumps so it's cool to see progression for the older crowd. My season is over as well, ton of progress on quarter pipes and my former archenemy the wallride, wish our hill got a big ass hip jump cuz I got mad skills on that now, still working on mastering oilee on downrails after my big crash this year left it too painful for me to land any sort of air so I had to keep the board on the snow for about three weeks.

A SBF Mt. Boho session would be awesome next year, was dying to make a trip up this year but it was an 8 hour drive and I didn't plan that out enough. Hopefully next year and Chomps will be back on the plank as well!
