My problem is I got 1 or 2 buddies who are my level or maybe a little better, but I hardly get to shred with them anymore. I guess I can take solace in the fact I probably am helping out the others I ride with improve.

I prefer alone. I ride better and improve more, when I'm with someone I always seem to be looking for them and end up falling because I'm watching them and not paying attention.

I usually ride alone unless I run into friends on the mountain. I find you can learn a lot faster riding solo if you have a set trick/technique you're focused on learning on that day.

That said, I still like riding with friends from time to time.

It's nice to have a group vibe and it can help give you that push you need, especially in the park when you're all tackling the same obstacles together.

If I end up riding with housemates who aren't as experienced, I'll just use it as a chance to work on my switch technique.
