Spring bumps

On the sofa (again!)

Was roasting today – glorious and sunny, but way too warm. Spring is creeping up on us! Spent the morning on the platter practising the BASI Central Theme – basically the beginner stuff. Being a geek, I found it real interesting to compare it to the NZSIA approach.

For the afternoon, we all rode together and hit the bumps in powder bowl – tough work, but great fun – Neil even said that my run would be a pass in the exam. Also managed to make my first grab on a straight air today – and it’s even on video! It must have been the demo board, cos I managed to land a 180 later on. Really enjoyed the board today, but will try a few others – have picked up a Burton Seven to try tomorrow.
