Picking up the pace
Yo! I'm a 25 year old boarder from Minnesnowta. After a 4 year absence from the slopes, I decided to go full tilt back into the shred game. I skateboarded for years, but never very seriously. Slowly getting my gear back together and trying to get back into the swing of things.
I figured out, the hard way, that I need some work. Went out a few weeks back and tried to hit a pretty steep bank. Ended up with 5-6 feet of air. Epic face-plant ensued. Ended up hurting my wrist, back, neck, and knee. Almost back to full strength and pumped to get my new board in the mail in a few days.
I also want to say, after spending 20+ hours reading on these forums, that this is excellent source of knowledge for people who are trying to get back into the modern swing of things. I went through all 58 pages of the "face mask" thread and I don't regret a minute of it. A large majority of the people here are intelligent and proper when describing and comparing. ANd without this hands on knowledge, I would have made some serious gear mistakes. \m/
