Ok I got my new board – 2005 132 Blindside Flower – and I tried it out this weekend. I absolutely love it =) (although I only have my husbands board to compare it to haha!!)
Anyway, its handles well, although its not as forgiving, and I love to carve with it. Since I’m still a beginner, carving is my favorite thing to do right now =)
But the biggest thing that happened this weekend is I did my first surface 180!!! I really didn’t 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 “slippery” so I figured I’d give it a shot, I spun the board around and I stuck it!! But I can’t ride switch too well (I’m goofy foot) and I fell soon after. The look on my hubby’s face was so funny! He told me afterwards that first he couldn’t figure out what happened and then he couldn’t believe that I actually did it. (I had been talking about doing it forever!)
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!!
Anyone else have any major achievements this weekend too? =)
