Just do it. Seriously, just build your board & stop debating.
I’ve just got home from a nice 30min carve on my local streets. It’s my summer snowboarding fix. I’m getting more comfortable with speed, and I’m carving the whole road. My Kegels are holding & gripping. The board does what my feet tell it to. I get smiles everywhere I ride.
I spent 3 months sitting on the fence & debating with myself. I’m 39 with a 16 month little boy who can’t get enough of my board. And I’m smiling ear to ear when I get home.
If you’re reading this and deciding whether to pull the trigger & splash the cash, don’t. Just do it. You only live once
