stretch every muscle on your body before you get on the board. Take it easy and get your body used to riding before you start pushing it too hard, or you'll end up like me . Stretch before you leave to the mountain and stretch on the mountain before you strap in.

sounds good to me! i just bought some running shoes last week and i'm plannin on quittin smokin cigs. i know....bad. but i want to run the bolder boulder 10k in the spring and i've got a long ways to go if i wanna do well in it! yeah and i had spine surgery (9 inch scar) and had to relearn how to walk for the first week afterwards so its been a huge struggle getting back into shape. little by little works the best i believe though. thanks mistahtaki

Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.

I just snowboard to warm me up for snowboarding. Stretch before the first few times though as others have said - your muscles aren't used to working like that.

I like squats. Or those wall sits where you sit in an invisible chair against the wall. And balance exercises.
