Recently, I started private lessons in tumbling to kill an invert this summer.
What is the most difficult part of your activity/sports for a beginner? The easiest? I am completely blind in my left eye (my optic nerve never developed), so when I go out heel side and cut in - I can't see the wake. Imagine jumping the wake with your eyes closed. No excuses though, shred on.

What usually gets people hooked on your activity/sport? Good vibes.
What is your favorite trick? I love doubling and passing under my partner's rope.
