My question is to know if there are any specific training that I could do during the summer to keep fresh in mind what I learned and not start all over again next season.
In the title, I stated "other than skateboard" because it seem the obvious choice, but wanted to know if there is anything else around that would help also.


Tks you all and excuse my writing skill, I do better in French.

PS I think that the first sign for me that I really love snowboard is when I'm now saying that the weather is shitty this spring because is too sunny and the snow is melting to fast
You write very well - wish I could write in French as well as you do in English!


And yes, for the first time in 35 years I'm not looking forward to spring, as I'm loving boarding so much!

Conditioning wise I'm working on my aerobics and endurance, and doing a LOT of squats with light weights to build up my legs and ankles

Tks a lot, I try my best....

Finally, I decided to forget about my Ego and I got myself a cheap Skateboard, I will used it for Balance Board but also to practive in our Alley behind my home. It's not easy as every kid in the alley are about 20 years younger.... but at least, I feel I won't have to start all over next fall.


Thanks for all your help.... I'm hanging around ...

If you have access to a pool swimming is great too. Swimming strengthens your shoulder a lot through the entire rotation of the ball joint and can prevent all sorts of shoulder injuries from falls on the board simply by being strong and limber there. It's also great for the legs if you have any sort of knee problem already, as you can really work all the supporting muscles without putting any stress on the joint and ligaments. I started swimming again this fall and as I worked myself back up through the winter, I noticed big returns on the hill, especially cadiovascular.
It did absolutely nothing for my balance though.
