Dropping In


It is funny, but in many action sports; the moment of coming down a vertical face is ignored. Yet, what appears to be a moment of nothing is perhaps the most important.

To the casual observer, the rider appears to be doing nothing. Yet, the opposite is occurring. The rider is loading up like a spring. Ready to strike with quick  motions to propel themselves upward to do the big move. All the while getting up the courage to do something and mapping out the plan.

Does this resonate?

You see, for ages I have been dropping down into the flats. Waiting.

These past few months it has become time for me to propel myself upwards. Shooting for the lip.

Part of this came to life today after accepting a promotion working beach-side. This is why I have been a bit inactive lately.

So now I am looking forward to see how far this next move will take me!
