Re: Controversal self-learning matter
- I am a leraner and have started to enjoy riding ( carefully)...
You can certainly do learn a lot yourself...
But, I think someone, as a proper instructor, passing the important
messages to you makes more impact and effect on you..
For example watching these BOOST videos.
I really don get these guys..
They are riding next to rocks, next to beach..
I have even seen videos, riders coimg from sea, jumoping on rocks,
adn oing back to sea..
what is this?
total ignorance of the safety..
of yourself and others
plus making a propaganda of how safe and how easy whole thing is..
I totaly disagree..
may be I am just a beginner and overconcerned..
