Default Not riding switch, riding opposite stance.

You think riding your board switch is hard? Try this.

This is the guy who puts on the slalom longboarding in the summer.
I have yet to make it to the end of the course without either shootin' off the course or taking out cones.
So having it timed doesn't do much for me

I have never tried hard boots before, but I would like to.

Truly amazing. Not just being able to do it, but he's even older than Wolfy
Just fuckin' whit chya wolfman, I turn 38 on the 3rd.
I know, I know, not quite as old as you but I'm workin' on it.

OpStance - YouTube

Pretty damn impressive I think.

I don't know man, still switch to me. I mean in skateboarding you switch your stance and do tricks in the opposite foot, like a switch kickflip. It's no different then this, but in order to ride switch on an alpine board you really would have to flip the bindings. I'm sure its tough though but it's still switch.

Ya, I guess. But are there that many guys out there doin' switch kickflips?

I rode a Rad-Air 169 last week with the bindings regular(I'm Goofey) & it wasn't really like riding switch.

Plus it was 2 feet deep, which probably made it a bit harder, but it's definitely not the same.

Haha, riding switch is hard but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it eventually.

Yes.

And I hate to nit-pick, but I really hate when people film holding their phones upright like that, it's so annoying to watch!

This is my 25th year snowboarding.

I can bomb my whole mtn switch. So I can say without a doubt, I can ride switch fine. Sure there's always room for improvement.

It's completely different riding a powder board, with a big long drawn out nose. In the opposite stance.

Trust me on this one, or post up your vid?


It's kinda like trying to skateboard switch, but not the actual riding switch, the pushing with the other leg. That's the fucked up part.

Hah, my bad man, I didn't even notice your join date; I assumed you were a new rider.

Oh, of course, you could do it awesome as well & probably couldn't tell the difference right?
