I say, to learn the art of snowboarding quickly all you have to do is watch a insane amount of snowboard movies. like 3 hours everyday. and boom you know how to snowboard
Good luck with that, I'd say it's spending countless hours riding in order to create and alter muscle-memory. It's funny how you ride for a season and maybe feel like you didn't progress that much, and then think back to a year ago and you realize that just by riding all the time you do get a lot better.
