Awesome, thanks guys. Hoping I'll improve a bit this time. I'm not taking another lesson yet though, A) can't afford it, and B) going with a friend of mine that snowboards, hoping he can help a bit as well. But I'm expecting they'll all ditch me and I'll have some alone time to practice without feeling pressured at least.
Yea I gotta work on my falling. Last time I went I didn't think of the consicences, you don't feel the pain until the next day... I couldn't turn well, so I would just bomb down the hill full speed until I came up to a crowd of people or chickened out then I'd just bail... I took many hard hits a d regretted that lol I now know better.
Also, I have a question on how to prevent a certain injury... on my last run I really twisted my knee and ankle... because like, I guess when I fell I rolled, and of course the board didn't roll with me so my legs stayed straight as my upper body continued to roll. It hurt like hell... it was fine after a couple days but still, I don't want to seriously damage my knee by doing that again.. does that happen a lot?
I also have the problem of turning one way only... I can turn right no problem, but can't turn left... which makes it impossible to slow down in heel side... I spent most of the day going down the mountain backwards on my toe side edge...
