2. Feet Strength: In snowboarding you use your feet A LOT to transition back and forth between turns. If your not used to snowboarding very much, or don't strenuously flex your feet a lot, it's going to take some time to really strengthen them to the point where things like traversing on your toe edge doesn't bug you.
