Exactly. Don't worry about ANY of that. Advance yourself at your own rate, and make sure you are ALWAYS having fun. Those are the two most important things.

the moment you stop caring is when you will start to progress yourself

Taking new stuff to easy features will progress you so much faster as well as progressing in a sensible order.

Keep in mind some of these really good kids have facilities with foam pits, trampolines, airbags and dedicated training and coaching staff solely focused on their progression. And parents too, probably.

I saw a maybe 7 or 8 year old kid riding with his dad @ Keystone and they did a father-son method over the last hit at the A51 jumpline. When you have that kind of support behind you, you're going to progress fast.

That's not that bad. Just keep working on it and you'll progress faster than you think. But don't get hung up if you don't get it one day. I've beat my brains out trying to figure out something one day, chilled out and just cruised around for the rest of the day, and came back to it the next, stomped it first try and had it dialed within an hour.

Also, try talking with people in the park. Most people are cool. I've learned little stuff like spotting the feature end under my arm or how to keep my tail from hanging up on lipslides just by asking people who were better than me. Most of them were younger, too. Everyone is in the park to learn and progress and usually just vibing with each other.

To me, *that* is what snowboarding is about.

snowboarding to me is all about the scenery, being able to be on cloud 9 basically. you look around, all you see are clouds, clear blue skies and mountain tops...and of course an ice cold beer in your hand. Just being able to snap pictures of nature and all it has to offer is something so surreal.


the park itself is on my down time, when i'm not at the mountains i'll be practicing some rails and boxes...besides, i can only cruise down the hill for so long before i itch to get some rails in

from my experience, you don't worry about all the kids doing the pro tricks. they're usually the nicest kids on the slope. most of them are very helpful and wont hesitate to help you if you ask them for tips and advice.

it's the ones who can barely land 3s, do mostly straight airs on big jumps and 50/50's on every feature that tend to be the douches...
