Jed Gear is rarely the reason people struggle with snowboarding. It can certainly help a little to have more ideal gear, but you can learn the basics just fine on most gear.

Getting lessons from a good coach will make way more of a difference than changing up your gear.

I took a lesson from a great instructor after 20 years of bad habits. So stupid to not do this sooner. I probably wasted 15 years of riding and not progressing like I could have.

Only if the board you're using is too big for your stats. Invest in a lesson. Watch vids on basic turns. And don't fight the hill. ;-)

xIceHoundx I've gone a year snowboarding self taught and I'm sure I've got a ton of bad habits and techniques. I really should take a private lesson to get some of the mess corrected.

xIceHoundx Depends on your boot size and body weight. If your riding a board that is proper for your sizing then you just need to get more time on the snow, build skills and confidence. Maybe even take a lesson.

Thoughts on learning

Went out for my first time last night. Caught on to some things quicker than others. Having trouble with toe side movements. I have a Ride 164 board. Is it easier to learn on a smaller, more flexible board?
