I tried some new park tricks, I'm progressing
It's still very early in the season here and only one hill is open and it's mostly a park hill. I took my oldest and his friend today and I actually got a ton of runs in.
I hit my 1st major rail, I have ridden some small ones nothing like this. Took nearly all day to get to the end of the feature but I did it a few times. I need to center my weight more as I slid off to my front side (goofy rider) after the dropped curve and I keep looking down at the feature not to the end of the feature. Still fun. I really wanted to hit that down rail above the rail I rode in the pic. Didn't have the stones to try quite yet, soon but not yet.
I was also able to practice on one of the boxes. I did my very 1st boardslide, boardslide FS 180 out and frontboards
I was so stoked when I nailed them and they actually looked good. Wish my boy got some pics but we were concentrating mainly on riding today and didn't shoot many pics.
Here is a pic of the park again. The box and rail were on the far left side of the pic. I was thankful for the tow cable, sure beat walking this week. They did have a lift open but no pics of that run.
I was very excited to be able to do some of this. Huge hats off to Snowboard Addiction, they have truly helped my riding.
