As a first time snowboader, what are some helpful tips for me?


Are longer poles better in xc skiing?

Take lessons with a snowboard instructor, it'll help you progress a lot faster than if you were to self teach. Get some wrist guards, most common injury with beginners is fractured wrists. Don't give up straight away, you're gonna fall a lot, but once you get passed that snowboarding is hella fun

Who is a good athlete role model?

Don't start on a bunny hill, hit an intermediate. I started on the bunny hill and I just kept falling back and forth, and on an intermediate you can kinda get used to moving. You're going to fall a bunch no matter what but at least you'll learn faster. Oh and practice braking, putting your board perpendicular to the hill ...

DC Allegiance Snowboard Boots with the Boa lacing system??

Don't get frustrated, you're gonna fall. use a shorter board... you'll have to find out what "shorter" is based on your height and weight. Makes it easier to turn and handle, which is easier for beginners. Take it easy the first couple times out, just cause you make it down the hill without falling doesn't necassarily mean you're ready to take on jumps or race down the mountain, just pace yourself, and make sure you're comfortable with what you're doing.

Why does everyone think high school wrestling is for gay guys??

* One end of the board is called the nose.
* The other end is the tail.

Starting on an intermediate-blue square (something steeper than your average mountain street) is really lame advice. And smart. You need to become comfortable with riding a snowboard. Like stepping off a boat onto land--you're body needs to readjust. I've been told that many resorts offer a beginner slope which rivels the intermediate slopes. A steeper ride gives you the << best-practice option >> of strict-edge control. Standing-up and falling over the edge of your board can be a confidence booster in the steeps [like being pushed, sideways, off of a skateboard]. That's a smart beginner on the intermediate (advanced too). Many people get the jist of snowboarding by noon, and "the wrist" of snowboarding by 2. A beginner slope is always the best option.

The best part is lifting your front heel, flying out-of-control, and to the left.

How do you snowborad?

Good grief, don't listen to half this advice. Unless you prefer a high speed crash to low speed crash don't try to learn on intermediate slopes. Go to the bunny hill and get used to gliding on the board with your lead foot strapped in. This leaves your other foot free to step down if you lose your balance. Lessons are your best bet but if you choose to skip those here are SOME of the basics:

1. Stand up and look where you want to go.
2. The majority of your weight should be over your front foot. This leaves your back foot free to act as a rudder and steer the board.
3. Extend your lead hand and point in the direction you want to go. Your shoulders should follow your arm, your hips follow your shoulders, your legs follow your hips and your feet follow this to roll onto your uphill edge.
4. Dropping onto your downhill edge will either result in a face plant or tailbone bruise.
