That's probably better than mine. But really good job. I can ride switch good on greens but when I go to blues whenever I start to feel uncomfortable riding I switch back to regular. I kinda hate that because I want to move up to a 540 but I can't ride switch that well so I will defiantly have to spend a few whole days riding switch.

This is how I learned to be comfortable switch, but If you just do it, that is ride out the sections you feel sketch switch, you will very quickly become very comfortable riding switch. You have the ability to ride switch you just need to trust your edges and not second guess yourself.

A frontside humping dog into a 990 hot tamale finished off with a drunken Bruce Lee. It was a sweet day.

Haven't done any tricks really but most painful one was BS boardslide along a double rainbow box and hurt myself for the rest of this season. Think I fractured a rib.. waiting on the x-ray still.

My best actual trick would have to be an accidental backflip.......while trying to tail press.

Yeah, its true. I went riding by myself on a weekday at a small mountain near me and took the same run over and over until i did the whole thing switch. Once u get a whole run switch, it will just come very easily.

Best trick this season was the FS corked 180 truck driver. So fucking hilarious to see this one pulled off.

As far as switch riding just throw a 180 which ever way you're comfortable with ride it for a while then throw another 180 back around and just do that all the way down the hill. This year I started doing switch pow runs which is fucking gnar kill and I'm working on doing switch drops. I've decided I want to pull a Travis Parker and switch from being a goofy footed rider to a regular foot.

Best trick I pulled this season was riding in the quick sand powder at Beaver Creek on Saturday. 3 feet of quicksand and 1 moment of even thinking about not keeping all weight on your back leg and you'd dig in the nose and do a couple flips and get buried in the pow.
