Every year I grow up a little more. I feel just that much more dead. Like I'm loosing just a little bit of my passion and idealism every day. I'm starting to realize that the people who are the most passionate and the most convicted are the kids. Us older guys ain't got shit on the kids. I mean, sure we have a lot of sway in the industry, but the Kids are the ultimate factor that keep us in line.
Its the Kids that nag the hell out of their parents to get up to the mountain , Its the kids that don't go to sleep the night before riding, cause their so damn excited, Its the kids that get all angsty waiting for winter, Its the kids that freak out when they get stickers in the mail, Its the kids that truly understand the meaning of getting “Stoked”.
I remember when I was 14 riding open to close at kirkwood, no breaks. It was never enough time. Now I'm not even out of bed till 10:00 so I can be on the mountain by noon. I think in my heart that kid still lives there. And that kid pushes me to do all the greater things in life. He's like my inspiration. And I think my 14 y/o self would beat my ass sometimes seeing the way I act.
So heres to being forever young. I'll be car camping opening weekend at boreal getting back in touch with my inner kid. If you see me up there be sure to say hi. I guarantee that i'll be in a damn good mood. Doing what I love most, snowboarding.
