Pro Snowboarding Tips Part 1

Posted on

It’s never too late to learn to snowboard! Many have learned before you, and they have great ideas to smooth your path. If you are interested in beginning to snowboard, we have some tips for you in today’s blog!

  1. Get gear that will truly help
    • Adults learning to skateboard no longer have the resilient bodies of kids. When you start snowboarding, you do a ton of falling, and being sore makes it hard to improve. That doesn’t have to be a problem. Instead, invest in pairs of lacrosse shorts and wrist guards.
    • Lacrosse shorts have padding for the crotch, hips, and thighs. Most importantly, they have a plastic shield for your tailbone.
    • Bring your mittens when you shop for wrist guards. Speaking of mittens - invest in mittens that have adjustable fasteners. It will be much easier to fit wrist guards under them.
  2. Don’t learn in horrible conditions
    • When you’re starting out, let learning the basics be the difficulty you wrestle with - not the conditions!
    • We are heading into spring, so the slopes will start to melt and freeze. Wait to train until later in the day when everything has softened up.
    • If you find yourself wanting to start out in the middle of winter but there hasn’t been new snow for weeks, wait until there’s fresh snow.

At Get Boards, we have dedicated ourselves to being the best online snowboard shop in the world. We also offer premier skateboards and skis. Explore our selection and invest in world-class products today!
