It's been a slow start this season. Mainly because there isn't really enough snow to go offpiste that much and the park will get finished at the end of the incoming week.
As I wrote before, I sold my Ride MAchete and my Lib-Tech T.Rice board which left me with nothing for the groomers. So I've been riding the rental boards for the past weeks and I can't seem to find a board in the Nitro selection that I like. The Team 1.0 or whatever it's called was ok, basic camber which is nice on groomers.
I was working on the slalom world cup when they had the first race at Levi which was a cool experience. There's a hellalot of work that goes in to the competition that takes less than 6 hours across 2 days, completely insane. And you would think you'd get to follow the comp closer that anyone which is true, but between the stuff you have to do you actually just see the competitors pass by really fast and you have no idea of who's leading or anything. Still had a fun week.
Work start tomorrow, it's weird cos I feel abit nervous even tho I'm well prepared and I know how everything works. I'll be working long hours almost all week so I guess I'll be back to the old routine in a few days. Or not, lately there has been no routine what so ever.
The "park" in Kaarle's backyard is more epic than ever. This fall we built this platform from where we get speed for the rails. I't about 2m high, 2x2m wide, kinda overkill. And awesome.
We got the rails set up, the jumps and the takeoff shaped and "watered". Now we just gotta see when we both got time to film, and more than anything, try to get some skills!
Last thursday I got my new board, bindings and boots. I wanna ride the setup a few days before I reveal what I'll be riding this season. I'll prolly write a small review since it's kinda fun, and it might be helpful for some people considering the same gear.
Talking about new gear. I also sold the GoPro HD Hero2 and bought the HERO3+ Black Edition.
Here are some pictures taken in different conditions with the new GoPro.
I Have been filming some short clips on the groomersand will edit something small this week.
This picture is taken by Kaarle, I think it's an awesome picture and at the same time you get a sneak peak of the Vide-Oh! park at it's early stage.
Today the world lost Paul Walker from the Fast&Furious movies. In a car crash when he wasn't even driving himself. Damn shame. I liked him as an actor and the movies will never be as good if they continue the Fast&Furious series with someone else in the lead role. R.I.P. Paul.
