Progression question for older riders
I started riding kinda late in life (37) so I was wondering if some of you guys that have been riding for a long time if it ever gets stale? I've been riding wake a lot longer and this year it just started to seem kind of boring. When I started I pushed myself hard to learn new tricks, and perfect my techniques, making things look smooth, and effortless. Everything came pretty natural to me, and I got good quick, but now years later I find I am pulling the same sets I've pulled for years. I have no place to go with wake, unless I break down and get a boat with a bigger wake, even then, who knows.
I guess that's why I've been focusing more on snow, with the varied terrain it's always an adventure. I know I'm limited in some things just cause of my age(41) I'm sure I'll never double cork anything, or make it much past a 540 for spins. I was just looking for some insights from some of the older guys around here. Does it ever get old?
