Wrong Board / Right Day

Woke up this morning hoping to check the snow report and see a few inches at least... But walked to get coffee at 7:30am in the bright, crispy sunlight. Forecast still showed 4" of snow by noon, and I pretty much gave up and started working on a client's website. Was completely sure that the weather apps/sites were full of shit.

I looked outside my window at 9am and it was DUMPING. WTFFFFFF... checked the webcam at Taos mountain, and it was up there too. I figured that it would get tracked out by people up at the mountain and not amount to much, so I grabbed this Forum Contract 150cm board that I got for $35 last year off some website's Forum clearance. I hadn't ridden it yet (I bought it thinking I could just sell it or something later), but figured it would probably be more damp than my Lobster Park Board, and didn't feel that I needed the NS SL 158 cause I just wanted to play around on side hits and shit that might have a bit of soft snow still.

I get on the lift around 1pm, and I'm seeing like at least 6" of untracked snow everywhere... There were only like 20 cars in the parking lot. Now I'm totally regretting not bringing the SL, cause a 150 cambered jib deck is probably gonna suck in these conditions.............

Today turned out to be one of the most fun days I've had this year! That little deck destroooooooyed the snow today. Totally surfed around like a wakeboard or something. I learned cab 3s on some rollers and generally spent the day laying down deep turns and airs on everything I could. I did get broke off a couple times in the tracked out stuff, but totally worth it.

Thought I'd share, hope some of you guys are enjoying some surprise fresh stuff too!

My day was pretty good yesterday too.

Sold a couple decks.
Well sold one & cuffed a brand new 2014 Slasher 61 to a complete stranger

Even though I can't bend my knee enough to raise it up a single stair or drive properly without
Sitting on a 6 inch thick piece of foam, to keep my knee straight.

I did 4 runs yesterday

It's been more than a month, didn't think I'd get to go again this year.
Killed the Mohawk a little early this year.

I was really worried I was gonna fuck it up way worse
Guess I still am, cause with less than 2 weeks left.
I got me some ridin' to catch up on.

I just can't fall once.

And I found a $5 bill in the lift line.
I had to watch 3 people ride over it before I got my turn.
Yoink. Thought for sure someone was gonna try & claim it was theirs?
Not that I woulda cared.


TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
