Board Notes Day 1

Having had not much time on a board before, I needed to nail the basic's right from the start so with the main man Alan Garcia a snowboarding legend, no better person to get me straight. Today we worked on alignment and pressure control.

Intermediate slide turns:-

  1. Cowboy stance hands over the tip and tail of the board while traversing.
  2. Toes to heel, flex before the turn, rotate the upper body down the slope and stand up into the fall line, then flex down to close of the turn. You should be facing downhill.
  3. Heels to toes, flex before the turn, rotate the upper body back up the slope and stand up into the fall line, then flex down to close of the turn. You should be facing upper hill.

Short Radius:-

  1. Upper body constantly moving to initiate the next turn.
  2. Flexing down to finish off the turns and controlling speed.
  3. Remember the up and down movement!!
