Ever just have an off day?
 
I went up to Manning on Sunday to hit the slopes, and just couldn't get interested. I've had off days before where I couldn't make anything work; I've had crap days where the weather was just too cruddy; I've had bad days for any number of other reasons. But I've never had a day where, for no reason that I can see, I just didn't feel like it.

WTF? Is this an end-of-season thing? Or do I need an MRI?

Where you alone or with friends?

Do you ride park?

Because freeriding alone can get a little boring IMO.

Fair points. I ride alone because my family are beginners and my friends don't ski any more. The park at Manning sucks to begin with and was closed for most of the day anyway. I guess maybe I was looking for a change of pace and none was available. Urgh.

No offense because I have to be honest...

This thread makes me think you suck. I mean, "can't get interested" ???

What is your skill level? Did you start trying new tricks at least? If you knew everything to know in riding, maybe... but....?

End of season sort of thing I think, when you are by yourself you don't really challenge yourself enough to stay interested..

try skiing sometime though, it should refresh your interest in a sport because you'll suck at it... unless you already ski; if so, my bad.

i know how you feel kinda of.. it couldve been cause i took a nasty spill early in the day and kinda hurt my head/neck, but for a majority of the day saturday i just wasnt feeling it.. i was having fun, but i didnt have my normal stoke level..

This. If more people had this ideology in everyday life the world would be totally different.

Oh, most definitely.

I'm someone who not only appreciates what he is doing while he is doing it but realizes that he should be thankful for everything that he has been given to enable him to do it.

While he pines over having to be on the mountain snowboarding, I'm in an area where I can no longer ride. But beyond that, I also have a stress fracture in my fibula that is keeping me from skating and a few other things. He didn't say, for instance, "no matter how many times I tried a back 180, I kept catching an edge" or "no matter what I did today, I could not stop being cut off by retards." Or...

He flat out said, "just couldn't get interested" and "for no reason that I can see, I just didn't feel like it." Yes, this sucks. And yes, I'm very happy I've never had one of THOSE days.

Also never said that he sucks... I said it makes me think you suck and backed it up with questions to determine whether he sucked or not.

Am I the referenced "one trick pony"?

East§ide 03-29-2011 03:12 PM

why are you being so judgemental of him though?
i used to play paintball competitively..i was fucking NASTY. Fully sponsored, travelled the country, and i loved it with all my heart....but there were days that i showed up that i just didnt FEEL it. It happens..it doesnt mean he sucks at all. Sometimes you just dont feel it..it doesnt mean he doesnt appreciate that hes able to ride.

You're maybe not a one trick pony, but youre pretty closed minded
