11 essential snowboarding tips for beginners

Posted on

Tip #4:

Protect your melon with a properly fitted helmet!

Tip #5:

Pick a day when it’s not too icy. You might hear snowboarders refer to icy conditions as “boilerplate.”

Tip # 6:

Take Lessons – this will ensure you are learning the fundamentals correctly the first time.

Tip #7:

Make sure you have appropriate gear that fits properly. Go to a reputable rental shop to ensure you get set up with equipment that works for your height, weight, foot size, and skill level – it makes a big difference.

Tip # 8:

Bend at your knees, not at your waist. You want to keep your center of mass (torso) over the snowboard to help keep your balance.
