This dependence on natural forces is found in only a few other "sports", surfing obviously being one of them. It's the same type of anxiety that the surfers on the north shore experience when the big winter swells fail to arrive (which is obviously not the case this winter, check THIS tube). These lifestyles can be emotional roller coasters, but overall teach patience, understanding, and respect for the earth. A new level of appreciation for the best days ever is reached when it all seems so far away. This year my patience is certainly being tested, as we all wait for the big winter swells to hit the north shore of skiing, the Wasatch Range. And while I'm at it, Keep the Country Country!
