What's Your Snowboarders' Mantra?
 
Hey guys... I like to ride bikes too and I was in a dirtbike forum the other day where someone posted a dirt bikers' mantra which was pretty sweet. I'd like something like this to post on my tumblr but i'm not very skilled in this area. So i thought this might be cool, if you have a way with words - what is your snowboarders' mantra?

here's the one from the dirt bikers thread (awesome)

Life is not a journey with the goal of arriving quietly and safely in one pristine piece... But a change to twist the throttle until it sticks full open... Top leap over, slide under or hammer through obstacles... To look fear in the eye and backhand it in the head... To skid, slip or roar across the finish line, out of gas, leaking oil and blood... Covered in dirt and free from regrets.

so what would yours be?

"Oh Shit"....can be said so many ways and so many meanings...often captures the salient essence of the moment.

A sacred utterance (syllable, word, or verse) believed to possess mystical or spiritual power. Mantras may be spoken aloud or uttered in thought, and they may be either repeated or sounded only once. Most have no apparent verbal meaning, but they are thought to have profound significance and to serve as distillations of spiritual wisdom. Repetition of a mantra can induce a trancelike state and can lead the participant to a higher level of spiritual awareness.

So Wrath, you mean to say when I'm flyin' down the slope doin' mach 1, screaming "Oh Shit Shit Shit,... SHIIIIT!!!" I'm actually gaining wisdom and becoming spiritualy aware and enlightened? Awesome!!!

Depends on the run ahead...
The usual mantra is "ride low, weight to front, mind your arms"
Then there are the runs (usually initiated by an oh fuck, why am I doing this) where it is extended by "grit your teeth, trust the board, ride low, ..."
Or the switch to the simple mogul run string of swearing :)

Yes...the utterance of this mantra often happens at the moment of or just preceeding the enlightenment.:D Therefore as you can see that it is a quite useful mantra in gaining wisdom, becoming aware and enlightened.
