Summer workout other than Skateboard

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.

i box to stay in shape. tons of fun and the best thing you can do for your body.

i dont skate anymore but i do still longboard in the summer. its as close to getting on the mountain as you can be.

surfing or wakeboarding too if youre able (i.e. near los beach and/or own a boat)

if you do go to a gym, or have your own if your lucky. Work on your legs; squats, leg press, ext having strong legs you will feel the difference next season

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.

Thanks all for your reply,

There all good, but surf might be a problem around Montreal as the only wawe you will see here are at a hockey game

As far as staying in shape, I'm triyng to keep pretty fit (at 35, with a daugther, a day job and way too many passions, it a survival requirement).

My point was more about doing stuff that will help me out with the riding aspect (stance, heel and toe action, transition, etc.) so I guess at this point skate and balance board might be my best bet.

The problem with Krav-Maga is that their first rule (from Lichtenfeld) is avoiding dangerous situation, and this seem to be against snowboard rule.... LOL

But you are right that martial art exercice help with the balance and stretching, so I might restart doing my Ju jitsu home training I used to do when I was training regulary.
