Pro Snowboarding Tips Part 2

Posted on

In our last blog, we went over two great tips for beginner snowboarders: getting good gear and practicing in the right conditions. We believe that it is never too late to learn to do something you love, and that is why we provide the best winter and summer sports gear.

In today’s blog, we are going to share some more important tips for new snowboarders!

  1. Look at where you want to go
    • You eyes always lead your body. Your body instinctively shifts its weight and orientation to follow your gaze. As a result, you will always move the direction you look.
    • You can learn faster if you practice standing in a boarding stance in your living room. Turn your head from toeside to heelside and notice how your body follows.
  2. Always follow the powder (“pow”)
    • It can be tempting to follow others’ tracks down a mountain, but if you do, you will miss out on the magic of powder. It makes turning into flying - there is truly nothing like it.
    • When you pursue powder, it will take you off the beaten path and develop your skills faster.
  3. Be on the lookout for walls and banks
    • You will progress faster when you train your eyes to look for banks and walls. These features help you turn, and they’re everywhere - creeks, intersections, and boulders.

At Get Boards, we are here to help you do just that - to get boards! Whether you need a skateboard, snowboard, or you want to buy skis online, we’ve got you covered. Shop today!
