chomps1211 Shit happens. No sweat. We're usually pretty decent about accepting "Mia Culpa's" from noobs who don't know better yet! Although a belligerent, whiny response is a sure say to get flamed to ashes.

To start a new thread, Go to the forum main categories listings. Not from the new or active topics page. Pick the appropriate sub forum, when the topics list comes up,.. There is a "New Thread" button upper L. Click it.

I would suggest reading the Forum rules. They are the stickiy'd topics in red at the top of the intro page I believe. Most each sub forum has stickies in red at the top covering rules, oft asked questions etc.

It's generally a good idea to check those or do a forum search before asking a question to see if your answer can be found there. You avoid any possibility of getting the sarcastic answer to a question that gets asked 5 dozen times each month.

This is probably a stupid question but how do I make a new thread??

Thanks
You have to be in a forum but not in a thread. If you go to the top of this page and click on "Tips, Tricks, and Snowboard Coaching", it'll take you to the top of this particular forum. Then you'll find a button high and to the left, titled "New Thread". Go from there.

Your riding is progressing well.

For style - I would recommend bending your knees to the tips of your board a little more, and then straightening up your back so you are more balanced on your board.

In most of your vid, you will notice your back is fairly bent over your knees. This is a common snowboarding issue and can be a tough one to unlearn. You're keeping your legs too straight, and counteracting this by bending your back.

To fix this, bend your knees to the tips of your board and straighten your back...

By changing this style, you will see your spins come round cleaner and you will find it way easier to grab too.

Keep up the great riding bud!

For sure! It's always a different perspective too. I thought I was getting huge air off this kicker and then watched the video and it looked meh. Was pretty disappointed but gave me motivation to go big.

I'll probably try to do a backside 3. Might video tape it.
