snowboarding last weekend

I am badly out of shape – that was obvious
But it nonetheless felt Good!

And, I perfected some techniques, so Very Extremely worth while πŸ™‚

  • Namely the pirouette in both directions .. technically correct all the way – yaay!
  • The step from regular to fakey. Its that move – where you just step over your boards nose to the other stance. I actually mastered this in my first weeks, but stupidly forgot how to do it. So thats back now!
  • Fakey πŸ™‚ Yes, I FINALLY mastered fakey! Its not as fast as regular, but who can blame me – lol. I did 2 flawless runs. Not a hickup, not a fall, not a near fall, not anything .. I’m very pleased πŸ™‚ Next up is SPEED fakey πŸ˜€

All those actually lead up to better fakey, but still, they re all achievements on itself πŸ™‚ And now I should finally work in those 180s, 360s, Huge jumps & decent grabs.. Though I might be too old by now for grabs n stuff..

Still, the work continues

I’m really glad I tried that Snowboard monitor course when I did.. It showed me what to improve & where to go after tackling that.. I wouldnt be where I am today if it werent for that week! Now if only I could tell that to my parents .. But I guess I’ll never get used to that. Who does anyway..

And I officially Do Not like the new Metallica album!
