Ive been playing hockey for a long time and thought that might help me learn a bit quicker to snowboard but i can already see that snowboarding is a whole nother beast.
That's what I thought too. It's a whole different ball game, though. I think the thing I'm having the hardest time with is not being able to move my feet independently. Back in the day I thought skating would help with skiing too. I was wrong then too.
