What did you learn this season?

Be it a new move or fine tuning that killer trick, what did you learn?

For my part, I taught myself how to snowboard from scratch this season. I'm at the point right now of doing 10-15 foot jumps with Indy grabs and 50/50's on boxes and rails.

Got about 30 days of riding.

I learned that it's important not to land on your tailbone twice in a row.

Subsequently I learned the importance of butt pads.

i actually learned a good amount of things this season. for one i landed my first front 1080 but i wouldnt say i have it down yet. i only got it around maybe 6 times and landed 3 of them. also for spins i got back 5s, switchback 5s, misty flips and cab 3s down and i can land back and switch back 7s every now and then.

other than that i worked on my overall riding a lot and learned a ton of new things on rails like front blunts and variations of that.

thanks, my friend and i are working on a edit right now but havent gotten really started yet. sadly some of the cooler things i did like the 10's and such i didnt get on tape cause its hard to find people to film for you a lot of the time but there should still be some pretty good shots.

This season I worked on a little bit of everything. First I had to just re-master the basics since I hadn't been in about 8 years. Thankfully, that didn't take much. Then I started working on my freestyle in general. Learned some 50-50's on boxes, got some grabbing off of jumps, just general freestyle. I also got to learn tree riding, and deep powder riding. Overall, a very good return to the sport I have missed so much.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I learned that your not impervious when screwing around on the bunny hill. I don't know what I did to catch such a bad edge, but it ended in a 3-set sumersault with a landing on my right hip which I screwed up 3 days earlier from getting way to much air on a jump and landing on the flat : X
