Similarities Between Snowboarding and Life

But back in college I was reading an article about a professional rider and they were quoted about their views on snowboarding and life. Now, I can’t remember the rider or the exact phrase (and about an hour worth of Googling didn’t help), but it went something like this:

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.
