From Dad, via email: "I worried about you as a Snowboarder, now I know better. Just promise me you will wear leather when you ride. Do not do this... (see video)

Don't worry, Dad... I won't go all "Motorcycle Irene". I solemnly promise forthwith to wear protective clothing and not a white bikini and go-go boots!
There's not much glory in it and it might look laughable but riding round them cones is nerve wracking! And crikey! What feels like second nature on the road suddenly becomes daunting in the classroom. I feel like a toddler learning to walk. But its all part of the fun, and though it's boring as hell to watch it is actually fun to do.
