Swede Here is the latest one from the last couple weeks. Starting to get him over the fear factor of the boxes. I think him doing Parkour class has helped with this. Also made him a little website with everything in one place www.gunnarandrews.com

So is he carving now at this point and able to turn both toe and heel? I know your original posts were what 9-10 months ago.

Next time out on the slopes I yelled "hot wheels" before the flats and it actually worked. He would point his board and go. It made it fun for him to as he was pretending he was a hot wheels car.
Good deal! That's the key with kids. They totally have a different concept of everything. The toughest hurdle I think you'll have with him is he will get to a point where he is having a blast but you will want to see him progress a little further. And he just won't see the need as he's out there having fun and getting where he wants to get down the slope.

The concept of progression for the sake of progression just isn't there for kids that age. So you'll have to continually think of new games to get him there.
