I have skied a number of times at the point where I get down all the hills I want to get down without issue. The last few times I have been out I see guys snowboarding and it seems more fun, so I decided I am going to take up snowboarding.
I jumped in with both feet ... I bought my own gear over the summer.
My wife and I both went yesterday for the first time and we had a blast. I am now in the market for equipment for her.
We took an hour lesson as soon as the hill opened which was a huge help.
I have watched a bunch of snowboarding tutorials to get the gist of turns, etc so I had a bit of knowledge going in. It put me way a head of the game.
I found these helped me a lot: Free Learn to Snowboard Videos | SnowProfessor
