I’ve never skied before, so I don’t know what I’m doing or how to do it. I’m not trying to prove anything to you. I just want to tell you the basics and help you understand my own personal experience.
Well, park snowboard is a form of freeriding. The idea is to take snowboarders out to a park somewhere and then ride the slopes in a way that’s safe and fun for everyone involved. The snowboarding season starts in early April and ends in mid-September. Park snowboarders take turns riding and sliding down the same hill at the same time. The idea is to have a fun and safe ride, and not to hurt anybody.
Well, it’s not too bad. The hill itself is mostly level, with a bit of a drop down at the bottom. There are bumps and curves, and if you’re not close enough to the edge, you can get hurt. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty fun to ride down a hill in the park.
They say that the only way to get any fun out of snowboarding is to ride down a hill with lots of turns, but turns are something you can avoid with a skateboard or even a skateboard chair. Its a little scary to get hit by a falling block, but its not an absolute impossibility. Still, a good snowboarder can get hurt more easily than you can, so it’s up to the rider to be careful.
I’ve been riding park snowboards for over 15 feet in the air. My first attempt came off the edge of a building. This time I made it out of the park, and I was able to glide down a steep hill without being hit. I’m still learning the physics of skateboarding, so I’m still working on my ability to turn without a board.
I think that skateboarding is the only sport where its possible to be hit by a falling block without dying. Maybe because its the only one that I can skateboard on and not get hurt.
Sure, I can’t deny that I’ve tried to kill myself on skateboards. But I have a theory as to how I would’ve ended up in this situation. I think that I was probably hit by a falling block too hard and I broke the board in half. Then I just kept going. It was a fun time.
I don’t doubt there are instances where skateboarding is the only way out of a situation. There are certainly other ways to be hurt, as you can see from the video above of a guy falling off a skateboard in the middle of a ski jump. But if you’re going to fall off a skateboard, you might as well fall off a really tall one. I also think that skateboarding is a lot more fun than snowboarding (which is my other hobby).
I think you may have hit it on the head with snowboarding, and I had a few ski jumps in my time. I will say that I’ve always found that it’s much more fun to skate on a hill with a good view of the surrounding terrain, rather than a short hill with a hillside view.
Yes, I’ve fallen a lot more times than I would have liked to. I think I have a few friends of mine who have fallen too. But I also think that there is a certain amount of risk when you are in a position of power that makes you feel like a real winner.
