Why we don't try to steer on the feature

On Sunday I watched from the lift as some guy hit the 8-foot down-box on Mushroom. Partway down the box for whatever reason he decided to do a toeside turn. Maybe he was drifting heelside. Dunno. Anyway, these things never go well. His board slipped totally out from underneath him. Because it was a short box, he missed the box, but he did an absolutely perfect all-points landing, with face, chest, hips, knees, and board all hitting the snow at the same time.

He got up. No noobs were hurt in the production of this post. Well, not injured anyway.

Hey, I can sympathize. Last season I pulled off a perfect cab-taco while trying a box. That's where you fold over the box facing up instead of down.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

THIS!

I'm finally developing the mental break between riding snow and riding a box and have learned to almost always just slide off the side of a box instead of turn into it

Almost

All of the "hardware" in the park reminds me of why I quit skateboarding 10 years ago, for over 15 it was plenty fun, but all of a sudden it started to fucking hurt bad.

haha so true! I stopped skating because no amount of pads would stop my pain. Its a little better on snow because you cant rack your nards on a rail nearly as easy.

The other day I was chopping up some corriander and chopped the end off of my finger. It hurt.
Really, it has nothing to do with this thread, but I'm in a sharing mood.

I prefer small boxes, only because I have a "small board".

The worst part is when you make this mistake, look like an idiot and then immediately after a 12 year old presses the shit out of it and then 270's off. I love when that happens...

I was riding at Tahoe a during winter break. Saw a skier hit this rail that started only a few inches off the ground, but had an upward arc (like a jump but just a rail). Anyway, he had one ski slip off one side, the other ski slip off the other side... thought he could make it over the end of the rail without catching his nads, but ended up suspended just 2 inches off the ground by his nuts on the rail.
