Most of you have probably not missed out on the news of Slingshot’s new women’s cable board!!! The Valley is based off the shape of the popular cable board the terrain and if you like something that presses out to the max on rails, this is the board for you! Honestly I can’t decide which board I like better between the Valley and the Reflex as the Reflex is a bit stiffer which gives me some softer landings off kickers but the Valley let’s me press out way more on the rails!
Anyways, just thought I’d show you some pictures of it and I suppose the best way to find out more is to demo one of these babies, I might just end up getting one of each for next season 😉
It’s been a while since I last blogged and I think it’s because I’ve been staying busy with University and my rehab. The other day I wrote my first ever exam at Stockholm Business School and the day before that I was cleared to do skipping ropes by my PT Britta!
My life took an unexpected turn about four months ago when I realized I had damaged my knee and would require surgery. I decided to take up one of those things that I had always been imagining doing but never got around too: education. Since I now have a few more months before my knee will be strong enough for wakeboarding I’ll spend my time with my nose in the school books (drinking way too much coffee) and actually enjoying it! At first it was a bit of a shock but now I’m loving being at hone in Sweden for the beautiful fall and the crisp cool air (and all the friends I have missed so much!!)
When it comes to my rehab, the last few weeks have been incredible! After dealing with a long period of time where my leg would “lock up” out of nowhere and a lot of pain in my kneecap things are moving forward with light speed! Three weeks ago I started training “3D Function Training” with my new trainer who calls himself @HansofHell. Along with this I’ve got my 3 times/week physical therapy sessions and yoga, biking and swimming. I can honestly say I have never worked out this hard before and I am looking forwards to see what this will do for my riding once I am back on the water (by March 2017)!
