BurtonAvenger Simple if you don't love it anymore quit. The day I don't love my job or don't love snowboarding I'm going to quit and persue a career in bounty hunting.

Simply^Ride id say we BAN you


That happens to me with a lot of hobbies, but never with ridding. But of course I am new to this.

Perpetual3am This happened to me with rock climbing, between guiding and setting up comps it became a real drag. I find its good to have a few sports because then you can switch over to give yourself a break and usually the motivation comes back...or you just end up liking the new sport more, c'est la vie!

I say be happy that you have a couple of sports you're passionate about, some people never find one they click with.

You bring up a really good point. Everything I did was more about the job than it was about having fun...

ooh, see, now you touch upon one of my fears....

all those years ago when i got my CASI card (and before i found out the pitance most instructors earned) i was all about moving to a canuck mountain to teach what i love.

well hopefully, now that 3 years have passed, perhaps i am closer to this ambition than ever.... but do i really want to call the thing i love, a 'job'?

will i end up resenting that which i once did when i wanted, but will have to do as an obligation?

but then find a job you love and never work a day of your life again..... tis a tuffy!

PaoloSmythe it is almost as if you could condemn yourself as being one of those non-committal type people, who just go thru phases and fads.....

i know what you mean. since i started playing hockey again last winter, my thoughts of sideways slide became less. my dreams were full of ice rink shinanigans, not mountainous ones. hell the other passion in my life, scuba diving, is more like a once every two or three year thing now... rather than a must do annual event.

however, the simple fact that you are worried that you sense no passion, is evidence that the passion remains inside you. afterall, if you didn't care, you would pay no mind to it.

be reassurred that your love for the sideways slide is as strong as it ever was, due to the very existence of this thread!

if you have found something to occupy yourself with in the off season... then good for you! it is better than going into stasis!

at the very worst, in this cliquey, image is everything world of 'extreme sports gnar', you might have to consider yourself a long boarder who snowboards.... or vice versa come winter.... but really who fucking cares?

when it snows, go ride. you will know it is still important to you.

Totally agreed.
