do you think my progression is at a good rate?

Ok last year was my first year snowboarding also a shity winter but any I went for 9 days and by the 9th day I could confidently go on rails and boxes at any speed I could jumps I can carve perfectly and I can kinda 180 I didn't get enough days to practice it but anyways this season im going to get a season pass and im going to try and go at least 30 days im going to try boardercross and I want to master up to backside 360s and i want to learn how to board slide tail press and noes press oh and I can do all the grabs.

Thanks.
edit also im 15 and thnx to everyones help and i think it was retarded of me to post this at middle of the night i should of said i can carve with ease not perfectly and wat u said is what i think im going to this season and im sorry for saying any thing that may have started me off at the wrong foot and im sorry to the people i called a dbag wont happen again... and to all the euro carvers im sorry for offending u. but my carves are pretty clean also i didn't really think this was as big a part to my progression but i realized it shaved off a good three days about 3 years ago i went snowboarding and i basically had an idea of the basic toe side heel side thing so im guessing that played a bigger part in my progression then i thought.

For nine days sounds kinda over the top to be honest. My first season was last year and I put in 28 days and I still can't get a perfect carve in. And I am ok saying that!

This 40 year old is ready to get out the credit card and take some lessons from you....lol. I hope to accomplish half of that with 40 or more days out this year!

Yeah, I'm gonna have to call shenannigans on that one. Just figure out how many skills you have mentioned, divide 9 days by that many, and you basically learned each thing in about 2 hours. And that's including time spent on the lifts.

You must be that guy at the Olympics who won 20 or 30 gold medals.

I'd say it's almost plausible. probably a little exaggerated though. I've been boarding only 20 over the course of three years and I can do all boxes and a lot of rails (I can't do like 30+ foot down rails, I haven't tried kinks, etc) I can get big air on 20 foot kickers easily, and can 180 on smaller jumps. I don't know if I'd say I can carve perfectly but I feel like I'm good at it and don't feel like I'm missing anything there.

Sounds like similar skills but I've been boarding about twice as many times.

edit also im 15 and a quick learner for any calling B.S.
Sounds about right to me.
I didn't need to learn how to carve, I already knew how.
I'd just never done it on a snowboard before, I knew exactly what I needed to do, I'd gone over it in my head millions of times.

My first time snowboarding was @ Whistler, with my dads new wife & her kid.
They both had skied for years & the pukey kid was a ski racer.
I was 13, I'd only skied maybe 4 times before that @ hemlock valley resort.
So from this, 300 acres of terrain & 396m vertical drop.
To this, Whistler 8,171 acres & 1,609m vertical drop.

Tad bit intimidating it was. But I just strapped in & rode away, obviously I wasn't doing 360's or anything but I could carve no problem.

In under 5 min I learned what catching your toe edge meant, I didn't know you could eat shit in the blink of an eye, 10 times faster than you could ever get your hands out in front of you to try & save yourself.

Got that out of the way right away, haven't done it near that bad since.

Your first day back, will feel like you were riding yesterday.
I'd say 10 times & you'll be doin' 360's, they may not look pretty but it's enough to get you hooked worse than Crack.

If can't do 360's by your 10th time.
Then you better smarten the fuck up, get in the game son.
We can't be havin' any slackers around here

Just fuckin' wit chya!! 10 times you be doing 3's.
Wait & see, I bet I'm right.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
