Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate it.
I started thinking about this balance training because last summer, I got really good at "Track Stands" on my MTB. (…balancing on the bike without dabbing.) Now, whenever I have to stop on the trail or take a ride on the road, I don't have to put my feet down to scope the trail or wait out traffic at a stop light, whatever. Just balance on two wheels till I can continue on. (...my record is about 4-5 minutes at a really looong light!)
Well after that, at the start of last season's riding. I noticed on my first day out, that I seemed to be a LOT less awkward on the board! I was amazed because I was riding better after the whole summer off than I was at the end of my first few months of riding.
I wasn't aware that you could "Train" for Balance. (…I guess I sorta figured you either had "it" or you didn't.
) It's good to know it appears I was mistaken about that! (..To be completely honest, I'm actually amazed that I am getting as good as I am, progressing like I am snowboarding!) I have never been what you would call a "natural athlete"!
This season I'd like to try and get comfortable (...or even just marginally successful!) at sticking a landing & riding out after getting any sort of "Air"! Thought some more intensive balance training couldn't hurt my chances of making that happen!
This sport is the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on!!!!
