There's freeriding and freestyle.
This is mostly freestyle which I don't do.

Freeriding is mostly in powder type snow, in the trees etc...
Like I'll ride close to the treeline to try and get more snow.
I'm always first in line on any day of snow more than 1-2 inches.

On the other hand I just bought an all-around "freestyle" board.
So now I have both types.
I still don't plan to do rails but at least this option
is open now. Still learning at this stage and before I can
do everything I want on this mini-hill it will take a few
more years. Already this year I've made some major improvements
which only comes from experience. Getting used to having both feet
tied down in a non-release binding takes some getting used to.
Especially when you learn the hard way like smashing your head
into the mountain a few times.

I've just started jumping a bit but planning a bit more radical stuff
like going off {very} small cliffs.
Used to play with a homemade skateboard many years ago, ahem and
thus the attraction to the above video. Mont Tremblant coming
up in Feb. and currently looking at Le Massive also.

BTW, do you ski ?

Freeriding sounds cool.
I do ski. However, organizing myself with the kids is still hard. My oldest son had his first lesson last weekend. Maybe after a few lessons we'll be able to bring him with us (GF and me) and start skiing again for real?

yeah, I think I might try this place
however, Mont St-Bruno would be closer for us

I just came to check on your LJ again. :0) I didn't receive this reply in my email, I don't think? I still read LJ. I keep meaning to start posting again, and then things get in the way. I can't give up LJ, though.

WHO is the kitty in your facebook icon??

I was just looking at your old Bm8 account. Got excited when I saw the "LJ friends" link, because there used to be photo of me there with everyone else. Do you still have it??! ::crosses fingers:: 2 months ago, I lost 8 years of photographs. Including most all photos of me during that time. Ya, I was that stupid to allow it to happen. It was heartbreaking. ::crosses fingers again that you might still have that photo of me::

---->Your photos are missed here on LJ, Barrie!

Hi Julia !

How are you :)

Yeah well I had your email set up as a reminder so just got to it this morning :)

The bm8 website was deleted a year back so wasn't sure if anything still existed but by luck I came across something called republic of LJ.. and you were there {and a bunch of other people..}

So here you go ....

Yeah, it must really suck losing all your photos !

So I guess you're not on Facebook ?
The cat is our new "abyssinian"...
Not sure if you saw these ?

So what are you up to these days ???

Take care !


ps: I almost feel like posting all these old LJ photos ;)
