just remember, if you can envision it in your mind, you can do it!
I hope so, I could not finish one lap today on the hill due to the problems with my quads etc resulting from an old knee dislocation. Weeks of physio seems to have done nothing to stop those muscles from taking over and spasming. I am at my wits end! I just want to RIIIIIDE like a normal person.
Physio tomorrow, should get me another two decent days at least.
/rant....sorry its so frustrating to see people with worse injuries get better but mine don't. :-(
Just joined the forum, I'm 20 and I live in Geneva, Switzerland and I just had my first day snowboarding last Saturday; four hours on the green slope at Clusaz (near Geneva). Not too successful, can't get the toeside turn at all. Yesterday spent the day skiing in the Grand-Massif and had a whole lot of fun... Been skiing for almost 15 years and I'm having a hard time making the switch, I do still enjoy skiing...
Hi everyone, I'm from Singapore( it's tropical here)! I fell in love with snowboarding while watching snowboarders zipping by me, whilst I was learning to ski so I told myself I was going to do snowboarding on my 2012 season. I'm 35 and I head to Hokkaido Japan to ski and have done so for the past 2 seasons for about a week each.
I have been a regular visitor of these forums since early 2012 but could never seem to register for an account on these forums whilst in Singapore but managed to do so when I was in Japan just last week.
I ride a 2011 Bataleon Jam with Flow NXT-AT bindings an I'm really digging the setup for all mountain cruising. I have been able to link turns and started messing around with switch riding and hope to progress to other cool tricks in the future!
Just want to thank all the regular posters for their shared knowledge on these forums and I have learnt so much about gear choices that it has made gear selection so easy. Also many thanks to folks who share tips on simple newbie techniques like riding flats and how to avoid catching edges and even more uncommon things like avoiding backseat riding.
My names is Caleb and I'm from Michigan. I'm 14 and I've been riding for longer than I remember but if I were to guess I'd say about 6-7 years. I have never been to a proffesional hill in my life, it's just been steep hills and hand made jumps for me, but I make-do.
