Ahh resort town living…it can be quite fun. Yesterday after riding, I came home and worked on the video then got back into my gear to ride down to the bar. I stayed at the bar with a crew of friends to chat and enjoy the night. I managed to make it home and slept in today but made it on the mountain before noon.
I talked Nate into coming out for some turns, he was helping Lib Tech at the tent. I met Nate through the blog and have met up with him down in summit during the early season riding.
We met up with Jakub at the top of Storm and headed over to Sunshine to see how conditions were over there. It was tree riding in some heavy slushy chop but still not bad. The bad part was having to take the cat track to get back.
So I did get to re-ride some boards that I was questionable about from Never Summer. I spent the tree run with the Heritage which is not a board I’d ride, doesn’t suit me at all and then later spent time on the system. It was the first time in 4 years since I rode the system, Never Summer’s entry level park board. Reviews coming soon.
The afternoon was spent with a couple friends just lapping the park. I had one good fall off the longer box where I ate shit…other than that, still getting used to rails again. My buddy Andy came out and we ended up switching boards for a run, he rode my NS infinity-r with raiden tigre’s and I rode his Nitro T1 with Raiden bindings…easy switch and it was fun playing around with eachother’s boards one run. Props to any guy who has the balls to ride a chick’s board. He saw me eat shit a lot as I tried to tail tap poles and tail press obstacles.
