There’s been on and off rain through the week, making most of the jumps unridable. Fortunately, the step-ups are in great shape because the sand absorbs the water and gets nice and soft. Ray and I decided to take advantage of this and rolled over to the Aptos step-up to work on some tricks. When we got there, we found that the run-in was covered in some dense mud-like sand, but we got it all cleared out fast and began the sesh. Ray was killing it with some dialed 3s, fat no-foot-cans, and big nothings. He even seat-landed a few no-kick tailwhips! I wanted to try some cannonballs, so I gave them a shot and they ended up working out! I started messing around with no-foot-can variations after that, and did some no-handed no-foot-cans and seat-grab-cans! It was a fun day of learning new tricks and practicing old ones!
Later in the week, Iggy, Cob, and I cruised out to the other step-up for a quick New Years sesh. Cob and I decided to try 720s. We both under-rotated and fell, but I felt like I could get closer. I tried a few more and ended up riding out of one with a foot down! Low on light, we packed up and headed home. Overall it was an awesome week, especially with everything being so wet!
I hope everyone had a great New Years! 2010 is going to be good!
