dreampow I would happily take a lesson from you Snowolf. No plans to ride in Japan?

I might get a lesson this year from someone, but would need to be very confident in them as I feel my freeriding is pretty solid now. I know I can improve a lot but would need to have someone recommended to me.

I will look into it.

Will also put up a vid of my recent riding on this forum. I only have older footage at the moment.
Would appreciate your analysis and suggestions when I get the video up.

nevrsumrrider Dude, just go have fun, you will get better with time. Just keep pushing yourself to go faster and ride harder terrain. If your not falling then your not learning. Hard to say this, but I say it to myself all the time, and since you were looking for things to say to yourself I would say....DON'T BE A PUSSY!! Watch the art of flight or some other snowboard movie while your cooking breakfast and go rock that shi*! And if you still suck, GO get a Lesson. Advanced instructors are awesome.

turbospartan I think that you are thinking too much. Yea, pick your line somewhat and have a rough idea of where you're going, but you should be having fun too. I don't know if that helps at all, but the only way to get better is to keep riding. Start off with terrain/speed that you're comfortable with... and then the next run go a little steeper/faster. You'll get more and more comfortable each time.

You don't want feedback from trained instructors, but you're looking for it from untrained people here? Seems like a pretty hit and miss approach.

If your wallet or ego is preventing you from accepting advice from a living/breathing human face to face (which I think is best)... I guess you can try Youtube. If you haven't mastered them already... learn cross-unders, pivot/jump turns.


These two are not the best instructional videos ever, but it's what I could find with a quick search.

Cross-under


PIvot Turns


You should also video yourself and compare what you are doing to what say these guys are doing.

(Skip to around 0:45 to see actual riding)

IdahoFreshies LESSON!!!!!!!!!! the single best way to get better. one or two lessons spaced apart a bit and you will be set to progress on those skills for a quite a while.

That happened to me, too. Same thing exactly. 2 hour private lesson for a group rate.

To the OP, there's nothing like a private lesson. The instructor will tell you exactly what you need to work on or change, and will give you things that you can work towards. I'm planning on taking another private lesson this year, even if I have to pay private lesson rates

lonerider Looking at your post history, I see you are an East coast rider. You should look for Eric Brammer... aka PSR (Pre-School Rider)... he still frequents the Freecarve forum, he currently is at Okemo. The link I gave you has his phone number as he doesn't have email access at the moment (he is so old-school... he is pre-school ).
