Mine would be nervous, I wanted to go last season but the snow came so late.. this year it should be better.. but being a newbie I feel like I will be sticking out falling so many times.. I want to take lessons for sure.
I only started boarding in Febuary and to start with, my progression was through the roof... Then it happened!
I was learning 180's and it was all going well until I messed up my set-up...
My board ended up in front of me like I was doing 1/4 of a back flip and I landed on the knuckle on my side braking 3 ribs...
Since then, I am having a hellish time to make my 180's and have been pulling out like doing a massive fakie!
I haven't had a serious wipe out in nearly ten years. So now I'm totally paranoid. Just talking about it makes me feel jinxed. I love to high-speed bomb it downhill...but since my foot surgery, I'm kind of freaked about over-doing it, so I hold back. I am fucking old (54), and one good fall could be the end of my riding. But I still hit up the diamonds at Kirkwood and Jay Peak. I just don't get much air anymore.
I've already blown my knee and broke a wrist. Neither of them snowboarding, but skateboarding...... so i guess that's where my biggest limitations come from. The fear of re-blowing that knee is what makes me set my own limits.
