Planning goals for next season

First cut at goals for next year:

- Be able to adlib tricks off side hits.
- Learn as many tricks as possible from the Youtube "29 ground tricks" vid.
- Be able to ollie and nollie at will
- All the butter variations
- Be able to ride switch on pretty much anything
- Be able to ride pretty much any terrain
- Take Steeps at speed
- If I get an opportunity, improve my mogul handling
- Do some real tree-dodging
- spins off jumps. 180s, 360s minimum.
- Become comfortable with Northlands jumps (20 ft and up)
- Become comfortable with boxes

Fuck moguls dude go ride trees at mach 10 speeds that's where you'll develop a better understanding of riding bumps.

Can't really argue. The small amount of tree riding I've done has been terrifying and a whole lotta fun. With moguls it's more a case of not wanting to have to avoid a run because of them.

Eh I avoid runs with them all the time unless it's a powder day then it's pillow mashing!

I'm planning on getting my 7's back. Film a bit with friends for a small video spot. And maybe do the Volcom pb and rail jam. Other than that, ride with friends as much as possible.
