I'm in the wrong hemisphere for this part of the year, it's London and the temperatures are in the 30sC for the 6th day in a roll. Crazy. The damp air doesn't help too. I am literally melting on the couch and starting to think that there never was a winter and it's just a lie that They are telling us to keep us in control. Look even an entire fake splitboarding forum :D

So how are you coping with the bad months? What activities are replacing snowboarding for you? If it's snowboarding again, I hate you...
I tried wakeboard recently, very fun. Similler to deep powder riding.
Have been mountain biking for a while, it's gread to sometimes ride the same places all year round. Also good for planning new routes.

I hear you.

If it's any consolation, Australia is having (cue comic book guy voiceover) the worst season *ever*. I can hack virtually anything, but not rain. :cry:

I am considering emigrating to NZ as they seem to be having a fantastic season. The glacier country around the main divide must be going off like a bag of crabs in the sun right now. I will get there...

Not coping at all. I put on my goggles and stick my head in the freezer a few times a week. This summer weather is depressing me, please make it stop.

91 degree dark apartment, hunched over a small flickering TV,
Watching better riders than me on bigger mountains than mine
Waxing my planks, telling my roommate to screw off
when he asks if I've got heat stroke, or at least if I
Wouldn't mind putting on my some more clothes
And not looking so crazy when his family comes over
Envying Method and everyone else in the southern hemisphere
Tickets to Santiago are $1800 round-trip, but that's getting ahead
Of ourselves, Only $1300 one way...
What are they odds of extradition for dodging student loan debt?
Probably low, Florida schools never taught me anything
About the mountains...

Short answer, like ieism, I wouldn't exactly call it coping... job search for Oregon continues...
