30 Mar, 2010
I’ve decided that I’m going to ride every day until Steamboat closes on April 11th because I have no reason not to and because there’s 12 days left in the season. Usually I might skip a day or two during the week to get errands done in town but I’m dedicated to stomping some end of season tricks. This is definitely a year for my park progression which makes me happy that I’ve been pushing myself in an area where I easily could have ignored it and kept freeriding.

Props to Molly today for hitting 3 new features in the large park…she rallied hard! Here’s her crooked nosepress on the flat down flat down box.

My goal today was hitting this feature in the large park at Steamboat. It’s an up flat box that pushes you out pretty good to the landing. I ended up by the last run of the day, being able to crooked nosepress the box. Sonny and Molly gave me a great pointer for my crooked nosepresses so that I turn my shoulders and arms and when I’m done, turn back and I can ride it out easier. It helped so much and I felt great getting it on this box.
Since we’ve been lapping park I’m back on the Arbor Cadence 151cm which has been my perfect park lapping board, smaller size and as you can tell it’s getting some rail time in on it.
After I came in, I noticed that a seam has split on my rear pocket of my Bonfire pants so I ended up stopping by Powdertools where I bought the pants to talk with Bernie about getting them warrantied. They’ve held up great since my Analog pants fell apart faster but because it’s one stitch, it’ll keep unraveling so I needed to get it fixed. This is why I try to buy local from my snowboard shop, I can walk in and if something happens they’ll take care of it.
