New new no really, but I am just getting good at what I know. I got the 180's really good. There is a really tall kicker and I nailed it for the first time and got some good air and landed it.
There was one run that I hit the table top so fast that the ramp send me flying in the air and I landed almost at the end of it, everyone thought I was going to eat it bad. But to everyone and my surprize I ended up landing that thing and on top of that it look really cool, because I rode then end of the table on the very last part of my board, while my body being parallel to the top. IT WAS SCARY AS SHIT, I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE .
I am getting very natural with my board, we are becoming one . I can save myself out of many many bad situations, the board has a really aggressive rear edge and that helps to get some massive speed before the kickers.
I am trying to take my mom next Tuesday to get some real videos of the table top and the far kicker. I am also going to attempt a Rayle ( I am not sure how to spell it), it looks like if you are fliying like super man and then you land, looks pretty cool.
So yeah I cant wait till I go next week, the cool part is that my friend Ben is at my same level and we push each other a lot. So we are improving at a pretty fast rate for an oldie like me .
Ill get some good vids, something longer than I have been posting.

|Simply^Ride||Today I had a blast, the board is a natural spinner, I also started getting some good air of a kicker on the other side. Is pretty scary because the thing is like almost taller than me. The sad part is that like I stated before Thoris was not there, so I didn't even bother taking the camera. On Tuesday we are going for 4 hours and I plan to get some good footage that day.|

I do like the new board, but there is an issue with the board. Since its so wide it has a lot of side cut and landing as much as they are soft, they are not forgiving. You need to all the landing by yourself, the board will not aid you at all. So I have to get used to this, tomorrow I am going to try to see if adding the fins will help this or not. I do not want to loose the ability to easily switch in the water into 180's.
And about the 720's , I am not sure I will ever get them. Tomorrow I am going to try 360's and see if I can land them.
