Well, I did it. Check out the first installment of my quest to learn to snowboard courtesy our good friends up at COP/Winsport Canada:
There’s no doubt that learning to snowboard is hard, but Jeremy did a wicked job of putting me at ease. The dude is like Yoda. I have realized that like so many other things in life, the key to snowboarding success is just not to over think it. You worry too much, you start to wobble. You freak out instead of chilling, you wind up splayed out on the ground. Kind of like life.
I definitely feel like I can do this and I cannot wait until next Monday so I can see where we go with this again. I just hope my skills don’t regress! I’m really glad I made the decision to learn how to ride in a controlled, almost educational atmosphere like COP. I had my doubts that I would be carving in three lessons, but I definitely can see the goal now. But good grief I can feel muscles I had no idea existed.
Until next Tuesday.
