an absolutely frikking awesome weekend.

organised a day off for friday so i could go to the snow with some mates. up at 4:00 for a 5:00am start. after hiring some gear and getting our shit together we hit the slopes. perisher snow resort was severly lacking slow. we had some fun though. left the explorers and hard chargers, and just had some fun on the easy stuff.

saturday we decided to try something different and went to thredbo. first time there, so i didn't know what to expect. the runs are longer, the first run we did was call the supertrail i think. it was pretty cool. smooth, wide, not many people, fast and flowing. great for building your confidence on the first run of the morning. headed across to the cruiser i think, which was more off the same. lots of fun, easy, fast and wide. then we went exploring and a couple got left behind. they had the best day. they kept on the same rides, while we went and found some shitty, icy, sludgy, grassy runs. ah well. gotta be in it to win it, and hindsight is always 20-20.

on friday one of the guys who came up with me managed to damage his knee, doing a jump for the camera. he knew the camera was there and tried harder, landed hard, no more for him this weekend. in my opinion his mistake was landing on the board. i usually land on my head or my arse.

so we decided we'd go home on sunday as the snow was crap, and one of our mates was out of action. so we got up early, drove home, dropped off my mates, and joined my beer drinking, soccer playing team for a catch up game. and we managed to win 4-1. fucking groovy. we didn't play our best game, but we outplayed them. some snarky shit early on, until the ref finally woke up and got things under control. i don't care if you make the right or wrong decision, just make one and let us get on with it. if we're relying on ref decisions to win, we're not playing good enough to win.

but today we played good enough to win, and it feels great. might need another fizzeo appointment though. went for a 50-50 ball, missed the ball and kicked my opponent in the studs. ow. oh well, shit happens. i have no illusions about my ability :-)
