the summers all about relaxing and enjoying the sun. when i'm not snowboarding you can catch me on the links playing 18 holes or at the beach bbq'in and catching waves on my surf or skim board. On a casual day you can find me riding my fixie or crusing on a longboard with a group of friends. oh and hitting the gym can kill time too.

Dirtbiking and jetskiing...and praying for it to be an early winter, preferably La Nina.

I used to race harescrambles on the dirt bikes (I have a CRF230 and a CRF250X) but I gave it up. Too old and too easily breakable; I took some bad crashes that took some time to recover from and I have a 3 story house and 4 kids. Still ride in the woods a lot, pretty accessible right from my backyard.

Jetskiing takes up the rest of the summer; we get big groups from hubby's work and it spreads around the gas cash.

For the most part, I just long for winter...I prefer it to summer anyway. I'm a California transplant and I HATE the summer!

Once all the snow has melted and the temp hits or passes 50* then its back to paintballing for me. Been playing for about 10 years and its just as much an adrenaline rush for me.
I do wish that I could even out the year a little more though. 6 months pballing and 6 months boarding

After my first season of snowboarding, I'm not sure what the heck I'm gonna do this summer. Rollerblading and biking just dont pack the same punch..maybe I've just been doing it wrong. lol

I skateboard/longboard, bike (yes, the spandex "lance-armstrong" kind), take meticulous care of my car, and I kinda wanna try brewing beer this year. We'll see.

I kill the bunny hill!

This will be my 10th year playing. I don't do any tourneys though. Never had any interest in practices, registering for tournaments, find sponsors or any of that. Maybe its just too many years of organized sports behind me lol. I just like to go out and play.

it was easy for me because i was always at the field anyway, so might as well be there for practice. Our coach did all the registration and sponsor crap for us. All we had to do is make it to the airport on time and hotels/rental cars/etc.. were all taken care of for us. i loved traveling around playing paintball and all the hotel room shenanigans that went on. I dont play tourney ball anymore and i miss it SO MUCH

Okay. I do get around to play though. Have a crew of dudes I roll with. Play throughout NY, NJ and Pa. Also road tripped to Boston and Chicago. Trying to make our way to as many of the best fields in the nation as we can.
