Default Father Teaching Kids to Snowboard

I have gotten so much good advice from people on here. Thanks snowboarding forum members. I just want to share some advice that made my little mini boarder improve greatly. I recently started longboarding to carve my snowboard addiction. Well I ran across a Penny Nickle longboard. It is very short for an adult but is perfect longboard for my 5 year old boy. So for the past 6 week or so, I would pull him up and down hills every where. He is able to control the board using toe and heel. I just thought it was cool that he could control his direction. Well I took him snowboarding for the first time this year. What an improvement from last year. His board control has made huge improvements from last year. At the end of last year me and him were able to ride basic green routes. First day out this year they only had blue runs open, and he made me proud. It was crazy how many double takes people had as he went down the mountain. We also could have gotten the double take because both me and my son are African American. LOL.

I just thought I would share for Dad's out there looking to get their mini boarders improving.
