Snowboarding, how these people are so energetic?

YouTube - Hot Day in Feb
I'm 15 going on 16 and I'm starting to get into snowboarding more seriously, have been for about 3 years and now going serious. I watch these guys and damn they have so much energy to just flick themselves and when I try half of these things I end up tumbling down the hill. Anyone got any tips? I want to start getting serious and shredding down the mountain like these guys.

That's all just expirience and practice. Go ride. Try stuff. When you fall rethink what you just did and try again.

For their type of riding, what kind of angles am I looking at? I tried 12 -9, it was all right. 15 -15 doesn't feel right. Bombing down the mountain and doing jumps n all that. Butters.

In general that type of riding uses even angles. That is just in general. What works for you is for you to figure out. I ride 15/-12 and my friend rides 0/0 because we are two different people with different bodies.

looks like they were just doing ground stuff while cruisin groomers on a spring day with soft snow, also realize the vid was edited. it not about the angles, its time on the hill...daughter, same age as you, does that stuff goofin around on groomer days, both on skis and a board...but gets in about 40 days a season...also as you get better you figure out ways to be more efficient in your riding.

Thus go every day, I'd imagine if you put in 60 days this year, took some lessons; you could be doin that stuff....might as well you probably don't have a real job yet...so do your school work...don't do drugs...don't do things to get you in jail...don't make your gf preggy...don't piss off your mom and dad. But do go snowboarding as much as possible.

aahhh....shouldn't you be in bed and getting ready for school in a few hours....damn kids these days
