My first day snowboarding! How was my progression?
 
Ok, today was my first time boarding. I snowboarded for 6 hrs straight.
So.... I'm kinda bummed because all I was able to do was go down some blues and black diamonds. I was hoping for at least some jumps, but eh. By the way, I did not slide down the blacks and blues on my butt. I taught myself how to turn and I must say, I've gotten quite proficient at it! I can link turns, as they call it.
I'm kinda proud of myself but kinda not. :dunno: At least I can prove to my friend, who doubted me, that I can atleast snowboard. :giggle:

How did I do my first day? I was expecting to hit some jumps and rails but all I could do was some lousy hills.
What are your thoughts? :thumbsup: :thumbsdown:
My parents thought I did good, but they don't know anything about snowboarding.

Thanks,
Sid
P.S: I'm not 'fishing' for compliments. I want actual advice on what I should learn next, etc.

I can honestly say, and I think that I do speak for everyone, that we are all very impressed.

Eh you did alright if it was your first day snowboarding. Now for me and many others on this forum we were pretty fast learners. I remember my first hike out to the back bowls dropping off fifty foot cliffs doing triple rodeos after about an hour maybe two of learning to 'link turns as they call it.' Don't worry though I know the rails are hard; the first time I ever rode one I made sure to already be doing a good eighty mph because someone told me speed is my friend. It went surprisingly well and I must say I have become pretty proficient at 'jibbing' as they call it. Unfortunately by the end of the day(me and my friends who were learning only rode for about 37 hours of the day) I had not completed my first triple cork in the super-pipe at my local resort. I was very disappointed in myself even though my mommy said I was looking good.
How do you think I did, everyone else?
All in all I think I could've done better and was really hoping to jump to the moon by the end of my first day but at least I can know so for sure that I am trying way too hard to sound like I'm a hardcore shredder even though I still know full well I'm not.

Oh but to the OP, don't worry, not everyone can learn this sport as quickly as some of the gurus on this forum. You're in good hands

C'mon Naturesabre, you gotta land that beast! What really helped me throw down on my resort's 46ft wall superduperpipe was asking my good buddy Shawn White to go first. When he lost an edge and fell in front of me I knew what he did wrong. I "Stomped the landing" as they say, and rode away at 65mph to the next hit. Oh yes and this was in my first half hour.
How do you guys think I did, everyone?? :eusa_clap:

Not bad for a first day, I think you'll progress pretty quick. Probably a lot quicker than me. I had quick progress as well. On my second day I filmed this little movie called The Art of Flight, you may of heard of it?
