Bobby Buggs Posted February 28, 2010 Report Share Posted February 28, 2010 Since 1995:eek: it was an interesting start. Equipment, Rossi 1Mag 159, Flow M11, Rossi Jeremy Jones Boa's. To put it simply I was in sensory overload the first 2 runs. I was thinking about so many things I could not focus on what mattered. Snow conditions, people, the board, boots fitting:freak3:. Finally after my 3rd run I was able to eliminate all the clutter and get down to business. It was actually quite fun. I can do a toe side carve no problem so I went in to it pretty fast, transition to heel was a bit of a problem but I ironed that out and went charging after a nice heel side carve and Boom, Im on my back sliding at about 20mph. I stop and realized I cant snap this thing on the heel side like an alpine board, the boots hit and raised the board off the snow hence the slide on my back. So I need to figure out that deep heel side carve. I enjoyed some back foot riding in the small bumps and was able to do some quick edge changes in the fall line by the end of the day. Getting around on 1 foot is terrible. I hate having my front foot turned and slipping around. Did a split getting off the chair:nono: wont do that again. Loved riding, hated 1 footing it, No stability. NO Im not giving up my alpine stuff but I can see this being fun in the spring "Splash and Dash" days at Mt Snow in the coming weeks.
