Beaver Bowl Banzai The Movie


The Beaver Bowl Banzai event was even more of a blast than anticipated. Here, you will see some commentary that will give you some practical eating-habits to emulate so that you can ski and board like a champ. Nate Holland, Errol Kerr, Kristina Revello, Langley McNeal, JB Benna, Grahm Watanabe, to name a few, keep their tips up so that you can learn from them. Here are the results again, in case you missed them

I learned a lot during my first race. Here are two things: Don’t ski on your new skis because they are new. Ski on your most appropriate boards, regardless if they are old. I wanted to ride my new boards and they were chattering and flopping around on the ice. I should have used my old racers. Even if they are 10 years old, they would have grabbed the ice and carved better. I didn’t want to show up to a comp with old gear. I was worried about what other people would think and that is ALWAYS complete bu11$hit and a stumbling block in life. I wished I would have remembered that.

Don’t psych yourself out. I thought I was going to make a huge impact in the race the faster I went. What a foolish thing to think. I am a 6th grade teacher and blogger by day and a “weekend warrior-skier.” I am up with Olympians and X-Games medalists and pros of all shapes and sizes. I should have just been wanting to have a fun run and just SKI it. I was happy to just be there and be in the mix. As I was in the start gate, my butterflies in my stomach flew up my throat and into my head. I became an adrenaline machine instead of just being my fun-skiing-self. I crashed and was out. Oh well. I will just have fun the next race and likely end up doing well.

“You mean I can register for a ski/snowboard race that combines all disciplines, race against pros and be in the running to win $10,000.00 and a chunk of $50,000.00?” The answer to this question is, “Yes.” I did. You can too. Daron Rahlves and Nate Holland explain it here. Buck up and throw-down.
