Most riders who are passionate about the sport remember their first time quite vividly. I am glad you enjoyed it and just remember, each time you go it gets easier and easier. Enjoy the slopes this season and stay safe!

mark6711 I learned the same time frame as ya, but my mistake is. I thought it was like skateboarding but very far asides stance. I hit my head just as hard enough for me to get a helmet for safety reasons, and no I did not get any lessons. I did my YouTube action and from their I'm a fast learner. It's fun but dangerous, I'm hooked to this sport and invested in a gear for next season. I would need to warm up once more once next season starts. But yes that's the key. Fall and be right back.

kayakBoy Hang in there!

Things never change - when i started 22 years ago, the experience was the same - get up, fall on you ass, repeat. Some padding in the back of your pants helps.

It gets a lot easier after about the fourth day and the learning curve is a lot quicker than skiing. I helps to warm up on the bunny slope with basic moves - ollies, wheelies, tail/nose roles - the helps with board control and is a good warmup.

Soul06 Welcome. I'm still really new myself. Only been at this 2 years now and not nearly as many days a season as many on this site (I'm not so secretly jealous of them all).
My first experience was rough too. Almost caught a concussion coming down a green too fast and taking some BAD tumbles. I had taken one lesson taught by a kid that couldn't have been older than about 16 who shouldn't have been trying to teach anyone. Tried to teach me and my cousin the foot flexing technique (press down on this toes while lifting that heel, then lift this toe and press that heel). After that I have pretty much been taught solely by way of watching Youtube videos and reading comments on sites like this. Its helped me out enough to be able to comfortably ride down any blues I've come across in the Vermont and Maine resorts I've been too.
