I'm just about dying up here in Michigan. The long winter has left me with only 2 more weeks before I can take my first set. So that brings me to this; what are your goals for this long-anticipated season?

This summer I'm hoping to get some new toeside grabs and stick my backroll and a hs 3, and just appreciate my time on the water.

I'm with you about dying in Michigan, but I'm planning on finally sticking a whirly bird, getting better with my toeside spins and add some grabs to my spins and inverts and landing the elusive hs 5 that's been working me good

im a little embarrassed to admit this but i cant land a ts frontroll. it seems ridiculous and i know this trick cant be difficult however i just dont get it. anyway id like to learn this and continue to get my hs 3's more off axis. theres a bunch of other crap but those are my priorities

My goal is to just be able to get out on the water. I was only out about 5 times last year thanks to all the travel i do for work. Speaking of michigan weather i hope that its nice there when i get back next week. I know alot can change in that amount of time. Id like to be able to get my back roll down and get my toeside 3 back and get a toe and heel blind 180

I like to continue what I started last year before I broke my arm--backroll, tantrum, 3s, and the infamous fashion air.

To improve my switch riding, w2w 180's and toeside w2w. After watching the "Building Foundation" dvd from "The Book" series, I have decided to start over this summer and learn everything the correct way. I just bought a portable dvd player so I can reference the dvd when I'm out on the boat.
Old     (woohoo)      Join Date: Jun 2006       04-23-2007, 11:47 AM Reply   
More grabs, 180's, and if I'm doing good try some 3's.
Old     (jman)      Join Date: Jul 2004       04-23-2007, 12:05 PM Reply   
the first two weeks once i begin riding, i am going to make hsfs 180s second nature, work on better edging on ts for bigger tsfs 180s, land a hsfs 3 (the last ride of the year i landed one but could not hold on. i didn't throw the handle i just didn't have a solid pass). also i am going to work on switch riding and switch tricks, and by the first month, a bs 180, backroll or tantrum.

After snowboarding for the first time all winter i learned 180s, and a 3 and now i am fully motivated to make sure i do it on the water. For me this is the year to accelerate my riding. Booyah!
Old     (ironj32)      Join Date: Jan 2007       04-23-2007, 12:28 PM Reply   
in the next month: get solid on all 180's, throw some grabs on my back roll, start landing tantrums/ scarecrows/raley's/360's.

I want to get w2w consistent, would like one spin and one invert by the end of summer. I feel like this has been my goal for way too long, l'd like to post new goals next spring. Oh! And i want to learn how to do those tumble turns, if thats what they're called. they look pretty fun.

go out more than one week for boardin
Old    xtremebordgurl            04-23-2007, 7:44 PM Reply   
Andy I go out every chance I get, its tuff dealing with New England weather, the boat can't even go into the water until middle to late may. We just got snow last week. I go out even when its almost too choppy to drive the boat in, and I'll ride behind anything. For 4 years I rode behind a 70 hp zodiac in the ocean. Wasn't till 05 we got a real boat on the lake. And that summer I was laid up cause of knee surgery. I'm not trying to make excuses, cause if i worked harder at getting in shape and pushed even harder on the water I'd be better but for those who have near perfect weather more often then not, its not that easy to get out everywhere else. Just trying to put it in perspective.

My goal list!

1. Strap a board to a couple o' ragrats and hope they like it! They recently tandem surfed with me and said the want to try it by themelves. I think it's time to try and set the hook.............I've already lured them into the black hole of quads and sandrails! ...This is all new to them, but hopefully it'll turn into a lifelong family activity....(Yes, i used kids and me in the same sentence.............SHUT UP!!)

2. Land a 360 or some kind of invert! The ankle is feeling good and I'm not so preoccupied with it now.....We'll see what happens. ROB!!! your on notice again with the backroll, and BUG for the 360!! ........
Oh, and work on my switch riding!

3. Tune the boat wake......I re-propped finally (THANKS GID!! ) and can use the weight I have without having planing issues....Maybe some tower speakers to pump out the kiddie tunes?

Upside down, not on accident either.

Get out on the lake as much as possible and enjoy the whole SUMMER. Winter is so over rated.

I'll be honest. I want to do a w2w toeside. I just learned last year heelside right before I tore off my prop and tracking fins and ended my summer last year. So w2w toeside and ALSO 180.

entrust,ts bs 360???

Are you sure?

From what I understand and know....there is no way you should be trying that trick and you never even done a regular 360 like a HS or TS front side much less a TS BS....correct me if I'm wrong tho.
