Talking Switch all day...!!!!!

I went out with the kids today, my 2nd time out this season. After getting used to the new set-up, kinda, I decided to work on my switch. I was able to progress quite nicely, and I am happy with my switch. Still need practice but I was able to ride in control nearly the whole day and I started to feel real comfortable in switch. It was a little funny when I went back to my goofy, it almost felt like switch. I hope that is a good sign.

Have'in a ball riding with my kids, hope that they don't mind being seen with dad. Hell they ditched me most of the day anyways it's ok, single line is much shorter

I tried riding switch all day once at Keystone. Front leg cramped up from overuse!

Switch all day is impressive! I'm happy just to survive a full run switch.

Nice to have that dedication. I'm normally regular and I get so frustrated trying to go toeside riding switch. I get flashbacks of learning to snowboard and catching an edge. I gotta put switch on my priority for this season.

I usually work on riding switch when I take friends that Im trying to teach.

My kids were off riding, so I was solo. It is early in season out here so the hill is still slow and not crowded and the park is not set up yet. I thought this would be the perfect oppurtunity. I was able to hot lap right onto the lift, maybe, 3 people in front of me at most.

Remember though, when I went last week and tried switch on the bunny hill it was an utter fail!!!
Going again today and I'm gonna try working on switch and goofy while on the green run, and trying flat 180's, flat ollies, and some small side hits. We'll see how the day goes.

I'd suggest one day mounting your bindings around so your board is now goofy if you're a regular rider. Then head to the hill for a day and return to the basics. You can still load the chair your regular way and it'll kind of force you to work on it
