Default Instructional video????

OK,

I finally have a small amount of play money. I have considered buying the instructional video's from Snowboard Addiction. Their youtube tips and others Snowolf have helped me a lot. I am a new rider, 1 season under my belt.
What I want to learn:
  • Jumps (small - mid size)and hitting a 360, fingers crossed
  • boxes
  • some ground tricks
  • maybe Jibbing??? still not sure difference of that and freestyle...
I know practice and real riding are no replacement for books/videos, you just need to do. I know being a newer rider I will have some physical limitations, can't get to hurt need to support the family so I won't be going gonzo, but still want to try tricks with my kids and have fun.

Any opinions if these are truly a good learning aid. Like I said I did pick up great info on the freebie stuff so just thought I'd put this out there for input.

Thanks & looking forward to next season

SnowboardAddiction is sweet if you have extra dough for it. Nev Lapwood ftw! Not sure if he goes through butters, but everything else on your list is in there.

From the looks of the youtube videos, I'd say it's fair to guess that buying the video will defenitly help

definitely cheaper than paying for a bunch of one-on-one lessons. I say go for it, then when you're done just sell it on eBay to recoup some money.

instructional videos are a scam, free ones on youtube accomplish the same thing

I wouldn't call it a scam, people still worked to make those videos. They are not tricking people into buying them.

I'll second that. They have a buttering video out now. If you already feel their free videos help you. All the rest of the videos are just as good.

Where did you get the buttering video? I checked their website and couldn't find it.

well I bought them and I will write a review of them if you want. Again this would be from a 40 yr old dad that just started this year snowboarding with his kids. It might not help you younger kids/guys but maybe some other dad's or non-traditional new snowboarders

They are easy to work with and for me I did learn a lot of great tips from their free ones. I can see putting their other tips to good use at our local hill.

It is in the subscriber area. There will be two. They are editing the advance one now that will be available later.
