first off let me start off with delivering the pics of my hoopty
but damn what a terrible day snowboarding, i was in a great mood when i showed up to throw down big today and work on my spins....4th run of the day i decided to hit the 45 foot and 55foot kickers with just a simple grab, nothn crazy. the 45 i stomped! speed checked and went to hit the 55.....cought an edge or something at the lip and it kicked my board out from under me...
heres a pic of about the size of the jump(if you look at my previous pics of the jumps the skiiers are hitting, its the same jump), how high i was, and the position my body was in.
problem was that i didnt want to be in that position! and the conditions of the mountain is shit, its an inch of fake snowblown snow over solid ice. needless to say i feel out of the air very very high up, knew i was falling on my back, covered the back of my head with my hands and let my self hit the solid ice....well thank god i didnt break anything or hit my head but this is the result
after rolling around in pain i decided i was done riding for the day and that i was done riding my powder board off the kickers and pretending that i didnt need a board just for park.
powder board; arbor abacus:
But who am i kidding, im working with a 59" base of ICE and FAKE snow
So i went ahead and got myself a park board.
....funny thing is i JUST bought a helmet yesterday, never thought i would but i know since im getting much better it would be a good investment. Especially since i dont have insurance. And this mutiny helmet is so tits!
so from now on helmet everyday. and you should too.
