a depressing day of style changing

Just wondering if I'm the only one here that has had a style change that really wasn't wanted? I've come to realize I am at a way higher level of jumps than I am with rails even though I've always loved jibbing way more. I'm still going to be ripping rails but its kinda sad that I'm a much better jumper.

I'm equally inept in all aspects
I find myself about equal in all aspects as I have really been able to give pretty equal time to all kinds of riding.
Like yesterday was all jumps except one park run. Some days I ride all groomers, others lots of park, etc. I plan out what I want to work on for the day I ride. Obviously that is subject to change, conditions, crowd, mood, pain level from wipe outs

Keep enjoying your new found skill

I do the same, although it's kind of dictated by conditions, as you say. Yesterday was snowcones for snow, so off-piste, side-hits, and hard-carving were non-starters. Spent the day on jumps. Some days I spend most of my time on the bunny hill doing techniques. About the only thing that can make a day of snowboarding not-fun for me is rain.

If you want to be better at jibbing keep jibbing. Unless you are completely talentless and it's a futile pursuit.

I'm best at slashing massive quantities of pow and I have no problem with it

And I'll be the first to admit I'm pretty much useless in the park

Who gives a shit go have fun there's days I'm on point for jibbing and other days I'm sending it on jumps. Hell there's days when I'm going big in the stunt ditch.
