Sudden_Death Definitely consider the lesson. I learned almost as much in that hour than I did in the 25 previous years teaching myself.

Oh that sucks!!! I was born in Richmond Hill, it's not the place it used to be. More of Toronto 2.0 now methinks.

I left all my guns on the tailgate of my truck one night here in Calgary. They were all in locked cases of course, but, yup. Tailgate down, right next to the sidewalk.

Found them sitting right where I left them in the morning.

Anyway, hope you get a new girl soon!!!

destroy Lots of great cheap boards in Whistler if you're still headed out this way!

I rode with some Aussie babes a few weeks ago and one of them bought a new board and the shop couldn't get rid of it so the dude literally said "name your price and it's yours"!

CassMT That is such a drag, stolen board is the worst,empty feeling. I would rather have a car accident

Don't let it damp your fire to ride though! Get another and do what you had intended

I think when you are first learning you are so focused on moving the board exactly right that you get locked in to that board. Any slight change throws you off completely. Have fun. I have 4 kids also and we are having a blast.
You made some great points! Congrats on 4 kids too. It's a busy life, ain't it? Mine have just started skiing, they love it and I never knew how fun it would be to spend a day out on the hill with them...it's so much fun! Enjoy
