I am a proud mom! Who wouldn't be? I got a very handsome, smart, and talented boy! I feel bad that I wasn't there during his very first longboard competition. If i were i would have joined too. He joined in both down hill ride and the push race. He didn't have much practice because of the surgery he had last year, but he went on and joined the race anyway. He got the second place in both downhill and push race and got himself two quicksilver shirts, longobard stickers and other stuff. He was a bit disappointed but I"m still proud of him. At 8, he was the youngest to join the 12 below category. I only saw pictures and videos and i felt so bad i wasn't there to cheer him on and join the fun! It made me miss my own board too.

Congratulations to your son, Toni. He has the making of a future sports superstar. Don't fee bad that you weren't there when that happened. Anyway, you are there abroad for his future. What is important, is he can go on with his dreams even if you weren't there to watch him. It's good that there are pictures and videos of him doing that.

Hope there will be another competition this summer because I'm going home for vacation this March! Hopefully, I could go back to riding my board and swimming too. Can't wait for that to happen soon. Thanks D! If you checked the pic, that's him riding his board.

Well, on the one hand the great satisfaction of having a child talent in downhill. This, in fact, as you yourself have said, it makes you a proud mother! The only downsides that you are not been able to be present to see your son skiing and as a result, to root for him! If at this age he is already a talent, you can imagine what he could become in his growth! My compliments!
