|ghuss37||Thanks everyone for the advice! I am moving to Colorado in early January and will be about 2 hours from the Breckenridge area. I hope to go on the weekends and work on some of these things. I'll try to post a video in the future with my progression.|

you're doing good, just keep at it …. watch a shit load of youtube videos, watch others on the mountain, ask questions and most importantly spend lots of time on the board, it comes naturally,
for me the biggest advancement I have made is to learn to be relaxed on the board, and not tense up … and I still have lots to learn
good luck ,

No forcing of the board to swing with your leg, that is bad. Keep your body always in line with the board and use your body weight with the up and down technique.|

|xDOTY||Bend your knees more. Squat. Literally act like you are taking a crap on the run. It will help your balance a ton. Other than that, it just takes time and practice.|

6th day you're doin good bud.
I say don't be timid with the edges. Once you are done with your turn's, you go to a side slip. Dont be worried to turn, keep your nose down hill, and then turn with your opposite edge. You're not going terribly fast yet so catching an edge wont be terribly painful.

Critique my snowboarding please
Hi guys, can you please look at this video my friend took of me and give me some advice for getting better form. This was my 3rd day on the blue slopes (about 6th day snowboarding overall). Some things I notice is perhaps sometimes I shift my weight on my back foot. Also, I really struggle with flats. I can't keep my board going straight and gaining/maintaining speed.
