Vail, Colorado – After a good morning session on my raceboard, I went up to Vail with my freestyle board. The techniques for riding each board are significantly different so I wasn’t sure how my brace would affect my riding on my freestyle board.

Putting my bindings on was difficult. Because the brace is restrictive and I couldn’t reach down easily, I actually had to sit down on the snow (which I abhor)! But other than that it was great! Of course the beautiful day and awesome snow helped a lot but I was comfortable on the board and was going as fast as I normally ride. And my toesides were better than before since I am in better body position so I don’t tip over and put my hand down. Overall a happy day!

I’m heading up to Calgary next week to train in gates.  I’m actually pretty excited and anxious to see how my improved technique performs in the gates. Can’t wait!
