A long way back - but I will walk that road

I feel disappointed on my competition results this season. My head is not strong enough and my selfconfidence has not been as good as before. I feel like my riding has progressed but the mental part is my problem. I want to become a better snowboarder but my head is blocking me. I feel motivated to continue working on my weaknesses. I have always been a person who is afraid for many things but I have worked hard to get away many of those fears so I belive I will be able to manage this aswell but it will take time.

I did not manage to make the FWT cut to Alaska this year so it will be a long way back to the tour. I usually dont give up on my dreams before I see that something is not possible and it will be the same in this case, I know it is possible, I did it once already.

Im looking forward to spend my summer season in beautiful Stryn in Norway again. I will hopefully have time to go riding at least a few days at Stryn Summerski resort. I hade such a good time there last year. A new job with new challenges is waiting for me...
