Your goals for winter 08-09

Last year I wanted to land a 7, and FS a kink rail.

I did end up getting 7's last year, woohoo. I even ended up landing a single 9, but haven't been able to repeat that. I never FS'd a kink rail, but this year I've got to push myself to try that.

So this year I'm hoping to get those 9s down, and make all my other spins look nice. I'll also push myself to get that FS on a kink rail. I also want to become more confident on wall rides. They kick my ass for some reason. Lastly, I want to try flips, but we'll see if I gain the confidence for those.

Freeriding wise I'd like to become better at moguls. We'll see how that goes.

Kylekilljoy and I are also hoping to make a video, so hopefully we'll be able to do that.

Most importantly, I want to have a kickass time riding with some badass people and be safe while doing it.




So, what are your goals for this year?

life IS good.

For park get my b/s and cab 7's fully dialled, and get some 9's aswell. F/s 7's and switch b/s 5's would be nice. To sort my life out on rails and actually ride them more!

Freeride, well I wanna sort my counter-rotation out on the super steeps, need to focus on that a bit.

Oh and I second the shred with awesome people part, luckily enough there always seems to be super cool people around ski resorts!

Maybe I'll start doing spins again.

Mostly hiking some new backcountry lines with a lot of pillowcase lines and cliff drops.

I would like to get out on Red Mountain Pass this year if the snow is good and another trip down to the Crested Butte bc would be awesome.

- Get my switch riding almost on par with my regular riding
- Dial smooth 3's and land a front flip off a natural feature/windlip/cliff
- Drop bigger cliffs on steeper lines
- Buy a helmet next year and have a ton of fun

To be honest i have NEVER ventured into the park, always found natural jumps more appealing, i might give that a go next year.

ive decided too not be a pussy in the park this year
im going to try anything i feel is possible, and im trying to double or triple my skill level in the park (i started boarding 2 years ago after skiing for 9 then coming to my senses). i made a dry slope in my backyard and have been practicing my box stuff and i relearned my 360 butter... hopefully i can get up a few 5's in this year, and make my 3's as clean as can be.

Not break my hand when attempting Mctwists in the pipe. Evidently I can get the rotation and the flip around but the whole sitting on my hand and breaking it thing has to end.

-More spins in the pipe
-720 butter on the wall ride at Keystone
-Truck Driver 3's
-540's
-Mount one snowboard to Regular stance and ride it one day a week all season
- More pillow and cliff lines in the BC
- Hookers and blow
