Goal 1: Refine my switch riding to Blue level.

Goal 2: Consistently land small kickers and ollies without washing out.

Goal 3: Put 1 & 2 together and learn 180's, possibly on bigger jumps

Goal 4: De-synthesize myself from my fear of speeds >40km/h and steeps. Learn better speed control in steep areas.

I think I'm more prepared this year than last. Jump squats, lunges, calf raises, Stairmasters for 15 mins every two days... all these fancy workout routines just so I can achieve all my goals for this year.

This will be my 2nd "Full" season riding! (...hopefully this time there will be some Snow!!) Having said that, My goals this season are:

1. Ride somewhere,.. anywhere with POW!!
2. Ride MORE POW!!
3. Figure out how to remain upright and still riding after getting any air off
small features. (...more than my "one inch ollie" from last year)
4. Equal speed & carving while switch! (...I can do local blues switch, top to
bottom, just not quite as fast or controlled)
5. I got forward & reverse buttering spins pretty well down before I even knew that it Was "buttering". So this season I would like to get some of the other buttering moves mastered!!
6. Spend my vacation this Jan. @ Big Sky!!! (...More POW Please!!!)

...Wow reading this now, seems like lofty goals for a 50 something "NoooB"!

Oh Yeah,... and beat my 30+ days riding from last years shitty season!!!

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

2011/12 (38) days!

Praying for a better winter so I can ride more. Depending upon my fking knee maybe get back to doing spins more comfortably and ride switch a bit more. Oh and continue to charge.

Awesome thread - loved reading everyone's goals.

For me, in order of priority

1. Don't break my collarbone again.
2. 720s
3. Big, floaty backside 180s off a 30+
4. Super tweaky nose-presses

I need to get extremely comfortable with switch something i've been putting off a lot that's really limiting my ability to expand with tricks.

Learn backflips.

- take front boards to down rails, been doing em on my skateboard so I'm ready.
- front & back lips
- clean up my 3's off larger jumps
- 5's front and back
- get more flexible so stalefish and melon grabs aren't such a pain.
- find some pow, last year kinda sucked for that... need my fix.
