So today was the first day I actually tried a 360 and my first try I did barely over a 180, next try I did a little more rotation and crashed, the next try I got like a 270, then I tried one more time only with a little more speed, I tried to commit as much as possible, I did just over like a 270 and felt I got more air than the last few times, I took a bad fall, the last times one my falls my skis actually came off and it didn't hurt, this time my ski didn't come off and when I got back up my left calve and shin hurt like crazy where the top of the boot had forcefully levered into my leg somehow and I could barely ski back down, infact I was limping around for a bit. I feel like my ski popping off would completely rid of the problem, my DIN is set correctly. If you don't know what I am talking about, have you ever jumped off of a cliff too far backseat with an icy landing and barely rode out way back? Your boot presses hard into your calves and makes it sore where they contacted. I am thinking this might keep me out for a few days because it's my shin and back of my leg for some reason. Should I wait for some powder before I try again? and why can't I get the complete spin around? I think the jump is big enough because I saw someone 720 on a jump half the size.
I am willing to keep trying and trying but my crash on my last run definately left me on a bad note. I have my leg iced in hopes I will be able to ski tommorow.
