Default Your goals for this season?

Have specific goals for this season?

Mine are:

- Stop being so cautious in general
- Hit the jumps on Northlands dependably (20ft + )
- Start doing street-style boxes and rails
- Learn 360's
- And although this won't mean anything to anyone who doesn't know Seymour, hit Devil's Drop.

That's a good season for me.

Italian enema.

Back Lips
Proline at Lake Louise
Comfortable turns on Double blacks rather that turn, turn stop, turn, stop, turn turn
Spin L Jumps
Dont get injured

That's my end of season goal list. Not expecting to have this down fast.

Mine are to be more confident at and perfect 3's, get better at buttering and get as much riding in as possible.

Also, hit Powder Mountain in Utah while it gets slammed with powder like we did the year before last.

Lastly, get the kids out as much as possible and especially to get my 7 year old better at riding so he can start to join Dad and his 8 year old brother on our Father/Son guy trips to Copper.

We'll have to compare notes at the end of the season to see how we did

Drop bigger things

ollie over a slow sign

Do 180's and ride switch more

have a consistent 360

Having a consistent 360 was my goal last season that did not happen. I think it's because I have weak 180's and don't ride switch. I hate riding switch and always go for pop if I see some thing to hit. I have plenty of height directionally but if I do a 180 or 360 I barely leave the ground. I think I have skipped a necessary step and need to dial out 180's before attempting more 360's.

- Get better in the bumps.
- Carve switch.
- Toe-to-toe.
Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.

Small goals
Become super solid at freeriding (no edge catches, etc)
Learn rails & boxes, at least 50/50's
Grabs & 180's off kickers
No injuries

I'm basically a novice/intermediate rider, but I think these goals should be within reason, since I'll be going to the mountain every other weekend this entire season.

Some more ambitious goals would be:
Learn 360's
Learn boardslides and lipslides
Learn to spin onto (or off of) of rails & boxes

clear the knuckle on a 20 foot jump (I have a ridiculous fear of overshooting)
basic grabs
legit boardslides instead of my pathetic pivot zeaches
ollie-on (aka street-style) jibs
180 off jibs and larger jumps
3s off rollers, at least one direction
achieve equal speed when riding switch
moguls (don't ask me why)

Learn 360 and 180s
Enter rails and boxes with out just riding onto it.
Stop randomly spilling on jumps and high speeds
Try urban
Maybe a flip
