Snowboarding, for all its inherent coolness, is not much different from life; it’s all about charging the gap and dealing with the consequences.
It always has stuck with me as a simple truth – in life, as in snowboarding, you have challenges that you need to conquer. Even when you think about the worst case scenario and decide you’re willing to deal with it – see my previous post on Father Knows Best – you still need to execute. Just charge hard and figure it out when you get through with it.
