I wanted to share with you all what I thought was a cool experience today; Went to the Ski Ranch(I'm really lucky, moved down to New Braunfels in July and I'm only 10 minutes from TSR)today and screwed around on the roam for a couple hours.
Water temp was mid 60's, air temp was lower 50's. Winds were 5 or less=pretty much butter considering I was there with only two other guys.
Oh yeah, those two guys were Tom Fooshee and Gabe Lucas. Basically, WOW. I only got a couple sets in and then pretty much sat there in awe for the next 45 minutes, freezing my toes off and watching these two go round and round. Very cool to watch dedicated riders, both of whom were very chill and down to earth. I managed to pick Tom's brain about edging, line loading and popping, and he seemed more than willing to help me out. Cool guys. The cable operator, TJ, was really helpful too. I managed to snag my first boardslide with his help(prior I was just 50/50 onto it and hopping off at the first kink). Anyways, not really any point to this. I'm just stoked to have been there for that- I progressed with help from cool people and wanted to share with you guys.
