My husband tells me that when he parks are work, a lot of the cars have various kinds of racks on them. I asked him what they were for. He said that since it is turning winter soon, that some cars have ski and wakeboard storage racks on them already. I have limited exposure to skiing and ski boarding, but it looks like fun. It looks like something I would like to try. My husband tell me about going tubing when he was a kid, but that snowboarding is exiting.
When I watch the professionals compete in snowboarding on television I am amazed at the tricks they can do. It is really fun to watch. I always hope they do a perfect 360 or 720 and land safely, but of course the crowd will roar just as much when they crash as when they perform a perfect stunt.
My two daughters are young and as long as they have a good coach who will stress safety first, I think it might be a good thing for them to learn. My eldest daughter is already a competitive swimmer and I know that she would love to branch out into snowboarding also. We have talked to her about what she might like to do and since swimming is primarily a spring and summer event this might be something she would want to take up in the winter. If so, we will be one of the cars with a snowboard rack on it.
The youngest girl is a bit imitator of her older sister. She always wants to do what sister does and is her biggest fan at swimming competitions. I don’t know if 4 is too young to start this type of activity, but when is too early and when is too late? I know that if we take it slow with her she can excel at anything she tries.
I don’t know if I can get my husband on a snowboard or not, as for me? Well I want to try. Even if I am just going down small slopes, it will be fun. What do you think? Please let me know your thoughts?
