Default I did it!!! I can ride switch!!!

The other day my homegirl and I taught my other friend how to snowboard, so while we were all going slow, I took the opportunity to keep practicing on my switch riding. I totally got it!!! I can't ride super fast in switch yet, but it feels good to be able to link turns with my left foot in front. By mid-day I was buttering my way down the hill, both clockwise and counter clockwise.

Then I grew some balls and hit a box that slants up then goes straight.

Best fucking birthday ever!!!

When you first get into riding switch and gain confidence, it's so fun, because it's like learning how to snowboard again but knowing all your mistakes from when you first learned.

Totally righteous, brutha! I felt the same way a couple of weeks ago in my DAY OF PROGRESSION (as it will ever-after be known) when I learned to ride switch and jump! It's awesome feeling like you've checked something off the "learn to.." list. High five!
