Default Rate my style

Third trip out ever. I started snowboarding almost exactly a year ago.

Am I doing it right?

Looks like your bending down to the snow a little too much, but other than that looks good.

your riding is OK but the stickers on your helmet make you look like a tourist. We all like to tour but we want to fit in with the locals...right?

It wasn't my helmet. I was borrowing it for that trip to see whether I liked it or not. (I am keeping it and the stickers are coming off)

This is my helmet


The new helmet will get the same paint job! One Love!

Too much weight on the rear foot.

Too much bending at the waist. Hips forward, knees and ankles flexed for toeside.

Proper toeside form is safer, more agile, less tiring, and the edge hold is better.

I'm not standing. There was an 85mm f/1.8 lens on the camera for that shot, so the shutter speed was easily fast enough to freeze the action.

well, since you asked...

nice bicycle helmet .... all those vents look cheeseball to me - plus you got the dictionary definition of gaper gap going on there..

why do you need a backpack?? this is just going to slow down your learning curve... no reason to ride with one if you've only ridden 3 times IMHO

get some weight on that front foot


on the other hand, if i saw you on the hill with the flag helmet i'd burn one with ya no matter how bright and flashy your clothes are
