Hi all, I'm new to this forum and also new in the snowboard "world". I start learning snowboard late this seasons so I had only 5 ride with two 1 hour lessons (hope to have one more ride before the summer, but the weather is shitty around here).
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
Balance board will help you out a little and can be pretty cheap to make your own . I made one out of an old snowskate deck (a normal skateboard deck works equally well) and a piece of 3 or 4 inch diameter PVC pipe.
And i mountain bike alot in the warmer months too. Doesn't help as much with boarding but is fun and keeps me active.

yeah I highly suggest you hit the gym and workout every part of your body, don't limit yourself to just the legs (but do put an emphasis on them)...Get cardiovascular in there too and you will feel 10 times better on the slopes next season and your ability to progress will grow exponentially as well.
