My first snowboard trip is happening this weekend and we have 2 lessons left at www.skicentre.ie in dublin. Simone is a regular betty which apparently means a girl who snowboards with her left foot forward. And i ride goofy which means i have my right foot forward. I have to admit i was pleased to be a goofy foot as i bought two t shirts with god is a goofy foot across the front in the sale in the great outdoors before i even stood on any boards. I realise that owning the kit before you can do the sport is not cool but it seems to be a pattern of mine. Two more indoor lessons and then i will have to earn the right to wear the t shirt on the slopes of switzerland…
