10-Year-Old Smashes Snowboarding Records | KICK-ASS KIDS

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha May 11, 2018 :
FAMOUS for being the youngest person ever to land a double backflip on a snowboard, meet 10-year-old Eli Bouchard – the next big star in the world of snowboarding. The talented youngster can leap up to 50ft in the air with ease, gliding over the most challenging slopes and regularly defeating competitors much older than him. Eli, from Quebec, Canada, travels more than three hours every weekend to train with his coach Max Henault, who says the boy’s abilities are unlike anything he has seen at that age. And two years ago, when Eli landed the double backflip, he became recognised internationally and has now amassed more than 46,000 followers on social media.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
