Ok I got my new board Ė 2005 132 Blindside Flower Ė and I tried it out this weekend. I absolutely love it =) (although I only have my husbands board to compare it to haha!!) <BR> <BR>Anyway, its handles well, although its not as forgiving, and I love to carve with it. Since Iím still a beginner, carving is my favorite thing to do right now =) <BR> <BR>But the biggest thing that happened this weekend is I did my first surface 180!!! I really didnít mean to do it. I did it when my father-in-law was driving which made it easier to do because he drives slower than my hubby. Well right after I got up I noticed the board felt ďslipperyĒ so I figured Iíd give it a shot, I spun the board around and I stuck it!! But I canít ride switch too well (Iím goofy foot) and I fell soon after. The look on my hubbyís face was so funny! He told me afterwards that first he couldnít figure out what happened and then he couldnít believe that I actually did it. (I had been talking about doing it forever!) <BR> <BR>Right after I fell I tried the 180 again and managed to ride switch a little longer. It definitely is hard to learn but its just so much fun!! <BR> <BR>Anyone else have any major achievements this weekend too? =)

Great Job! you are definetly hooked!

Yeah, I am definitely hooked! We go to the lake almost every weekend and Iím usually the first one on and the last one off the lake. I donít care if its cold out, I have more important things to worry about, like staying up and learning new tricks! Haha =) Besides, our lake is so busy that early in the morning and at dusk is the only time when the water is like glass. During the day itís so choppy that I feel like Iím on the damn ocean!

Went out yesterday,only saw 3 other boats! It was butter! Kids are back in school!Thats the perfect day. If you want to extend your season even more, get yourself a drysuit. We go until Nov. here in the PNW. Sometimes until Dec. First on Last off! Way cool, thats the way we do it!!!
