"Progression Sessions"
 
Hey guys. This thread is to post about some of the best "progression sessions" that you've had. Tonight I had a session that I like to call a "Progression Session". I try to have a few of these a year, and what they are is whenever I go snowboarding by myself and only hit one feature for about 1-2 hours and try to land all my tricks on it, and some new ones. Tonight I was hitting this jump in my yard that's a bit higher than my waist. First I started off with some grabs, then I moved on to FS 180's. After I landed about 5 of those I moved on to BS 180's (my weak spinning direction) and I landed about 3 or 4 of those. Next, I did 4 or 5 FS 360's. I got them a whole lot cleaner than before now and I started stomping them out pretty good. Tonight I also landed two new tricks. I landed my first ever BS 360, and also my first ever FS 540! :D I'm really excited. So yeah just post story's about any "progression Sessions" you've had.

Oh haha I dont go to the park, at all, but I know what you mean by progression sessions. Everyone gets them, where everything seems to be clicking and then when that goal is accomplished you set a new standard for your riding and progress.

Yeah, not in the park but on the last night snowboard of last season (in NZ) everything just clicked and my daughter and I seemingly stepped up to the next level. We were pumped - then we had to fly home. :(

I hope it's like riding a bike when we go back there in a few months.

last week when i went up to teh mountain i focused on my switch riding. after a couple runs down a long green trail i was starting to get decent at it with the ability to connect heel and toeside turns.

What is everyone still doing to progress their riding this season? I am sortof comfortable riding regular and now I want to work on switch riding. Time to hit the bunnies and try working on this skill. Im just interested in seeing what other people are working on.

Deffinetly gonna work hard on getting switch down, last year I got board-spins down and started feeling much more comfortable switch. I think getting switch down to a science will help me progress with freestyle, because right now just getting on that other side feels so awkward. I think riding a centered Evo will help me about a lot, before I was riding a bigger traditional camber directional-twin board with a 2-inch setback.

I was pissed for a second there, I was like where the hell in PA is there snow right now??? Then I noticed the date. I hate waiting for snow while my friends in WA call me up like "hey I'm going to baker today, just wanted to let you know" yeah thanks #ick.. Did I ever tell you how much I hate PA? I was tainted by the beauty/epic boarding of WA.
P.S. I grew up here so I can talk all the trash I want... :D
