You got to try a freebord. It is the closest thing to snowboarding on pavement. It is just awesome but if you fall it hurts lots more than snow and even ice

Honestly if it wasn't for longboarding and freebording I would never have gotten to the point I am at so fast.

JeffreyCH The only thing you will learn is that there are bones, tendons and muscles in your feet that you never knew you had....and they will all HURT!! You could try hard boot Euro carve

Yeah man I Longboard and started to Freebord last year. Just wanted to impress my wife who like to ski. But I am prob not going to do it. I think for now I rather use that money toward other things.

i started skiing when i was 4 and did it every year until last year when i started snowboarding at 14. if anything skiing will help with snowboarding but i dont think the other way around.

slyder I heard long boarding is good, I think Donutz gave it a try I'm sure he'll chime in.
Quality time on the slopes is really best

Fixed it a while ago. It's in General Chat.

slyder knowing how to skii with a 12 year break before I learned to snowboard. The only thing that I thought was good was I knew how to use the chair properly, riding etiquette and the fundamentals of how a board/edges make you turn

Totally. As a person who learned to ski first the only real advantage it gave me was that I was comfortable sliding around on snow. The two are pretty distinctly different since 4 edges is certainly not the same as 2. I'll say this, my first pow day on a snowboard made me a permanent convert.
