I won't tease you on this because that's my life. Everything is terrifying right now. Lots of anxiety.
Anyway, I'm still learning. Like I mean, I just figured out how to link turns. Go me! But even that was terrifying.
It was so dumb. I was on the hill last weekend. First run. I KNEW I had the skill to do better, but I just couldn't make myself do it. It wasn't that I was scared to make a move and get hurt, it was that I was scared to go to a new level. It was out of my comfort zone.
So I went to the lodge, had a beer, pulled the stick out of my ass and just did it. Woot!
And then I could do it all afternoon just fine. No liquid encouragement needed. It just took the one beer to loosen up a little. Nothing wrong with that.
Can you do that? Do it once and know you can do it? Then no big deal, right?

Just a matter of spending more time in the park I suppose.

|chomps1211||So THAT's my problem!!! Seems I fucked myself as far as ever getting "steezy" by sobering up years ago!|

I think I have a problem!
I have trouble committing to tricks when I'm sober.
I always chicken out and just do a 360 or a 50-50..
After a couple beers and redbull vodkas I'll throw down a decent looking 5 or 7 without hesitation. I'll also hit rails when I'm a little buzzed. I avoid the bigger ones when I'm sober.
My goal for next summer is work on my confidence, and find some buddies that want to hit park more!
