stop turning. Just point it. I mean, it's not steep right?


My very first time boarding I signed up for a lesson but it didn't start until 11am and I was impatient.
Couldn't figure out how to get on a lift so I just hiked up the bunny hill , strapped in and went for it. I ate it hard, more then once. nothing ventured nothing gained right?

Yeah, OK...

Maybe you missed the part where I said I tried that. Either my tail was coming around on me (in the back seat), my nose was burying (in the whole 3") and I was stopping when I leaned more forward, or even if I tried to just engage a little edge to keep my tail from coming around I dug in and stopped.

3" of fresh on grass just doesn't work. I guess I could practice for hours until my balance was perfect so I could flat-base without too much pressure front or rear, but is there a point to that? Cuz the perfect flat-base technique just sounds like a really good way to catch an edge and eat shit on anything other than 3" of fresh on grass?...

How about it just keeps snowing all night and I go try again tomorrow?

Sheesh...

PS: I know you're a cat/shark thing, but fuck you too Mixie...

Why do people insist on replying without reading the thread?

It's not like it's tltr or some shit...?

More importantly, why to do I keep reading their responses and worse yet, replying...
Ah yeah the trick is to have a short run and work on rails and shit but for basics it's probably worthless

That's my thinking, but I'm a n00b what the hell do I know. That, and I'm not really interested in jib'n and park. My local is all about steep'n deep trees.

On the bright side, the weather men were all wrong again and the snowboarding gods have blessed me with 8 - 10" of fresh since yesterday morning and it is dumping what is supposed to be another 4 - 5" right now!

Time to go bomb the driving range!

We got maybe 9 - 10" total and it is now raining. However, I did get quite a few runs in down the local sledding hill...

I bailed once the kids with the bungee and the rails came and dropped their shit right in the middle of the run I'd made by packing all that wet heavy shit with a couple dozen runs and hiking that fucking hill. Little cocksuckers...

Meh, I was wiped anyway. Had a couple of classic wipeouts. See that transition in the pic (actually one of 3 on this hill) I caught my toe edge at the top and launched all the way down it face first. It was pretty epic.

Didn't hurt as bad as catching and stumbling while skating down and losing my back foot and doing the splits. My hip is killing me. Yeah, yeah, spare me the jokes about the old guy breaking his hip.

Keep those shoulders parallel to that board.
Glad you got out there and rode
