I've decided to visit our nearest fridge (50 shocking miles away!!!) and make an arse of myself learning to board so I can have a better understanding of it first-hand. I know I'll love it as I used to skateboard back in the day and could burn some serious hand slides and rails. Just worried about injury a little, cos I teach, teachers how to become tramp instructors (hope that makes sense?) for a living and need to earn a crust.
If it goes well I'm going to invest in a cheap learning board that will do both snow and tramp, may as well practice with the real deal on the tramp as it'll benefit the snowboarding. I'll let you know how it goes! can't wait.
Please Santa, make it snow in the UK!
