boarding on snow...

It is such a great feeling to be able to go down the hill on a snowboard... the rush you get when you go down the hill fast enough to feel the speed.. its just amazing.. ... It looks so cool when you see an expert do it on tv .. and it feels cooler when you actually try it yourself.. 2 years back when i tried for the first time, i fell down so many times and had a few horrible falls which made me think i will never try this again in my life... i took a lesson this year and it made so much difference that I got the courage to try it again and this time i managed to go down the hill 7 times in a day and i was so proud of myself.. just the feeling of acheiving something which you thought you were never going to succeed.. its just a great feeling... and the fact that if you continue doing this you can actually be good in something is also great... anyway... long story short... it just feels amazing. to be able to spray the snow all over and sometimes even get it all over your face when you fall down... i should thank my friend for letting me borrow his board... maybe thats my next target.. buy a good board and wait for more snow and give it a go again... better to try it on fresh snow which cushions your falls than hard compacted snow which is too fast when you have little control over the board... :)

@Ms.N: Actually I had never lived in a place where it snows before I moved to Oslo.. But I am doing alright with occasional cold related problems.. I guess you will get adjusted easily, just takes time depending on the individual and how willing you are to adapt... But its lot of fun guaranteed.. Oslo is th best place for winer activities as I dont have to plan a special ski trip anywhere... I can just take a city metro up to the hill near the city.. :)

@Am..: Thanks.. have a long way to go before i can call myself a true snow boarder.. need to improve my basic skill sets...
