Hey Welcome! Snowboarding is just an awesome winter time sport. It is fun. I am a new rider myself and this will be my third season. The things that really helped me were. I ride a longboard skateboard THE MOST IMPORTANT...I took a private lesson for 2+ hours before doing anything on the board. Afterward my freebord helped too during the warm season. Otherwise start stretching (if you are old like me) keep your knees bent and wear a helmet!!
Nice one man, thanks for the tips. I'm 23 but fairly unfit at the moment, been stretching and jogging with the past few weeks. I was skateboarding the weekend in a skatepark and I'm very very sore still from it (I used to skate a lot when I was younger) but I'm trying to pick it up again to gain balance and all that
