So this is the season where i want to learn how to snowboard and of course eat shit and get multiple multiple bruises. does anyone have any recommendations or tips for me?
death_dodge saidI started snowboarding when I was around 12 and again when I was 15. Basicly what I did was teach myself for a day no matter how much I fell and then the next bought a 1 hour private lesson.
Try to be as air tight as possible with your clothes. You are going to get snow in places you never dreamed of anyway, but you can at least try to minimize it.t
I never worry about my clothes, sometimes i just wear a sweater, mittens, and a hat. But if your first starting out expect to fall a lot so wear extra padding.
chrixx saidDon't be too fearful of falling and you'll find that you won't fall as often.It's the fear that makes people do the things that make them fall, e.g. lean too far back and setting the board flying upwards or turning too quickly and trying to stop abruptly.
