What snowboarding problem are you trying to fix?

Right now I can't shred because I've got a broken leg. I wanna know how long it's going to be before I can ride again (gonna have to wait unfortunately).

But before that, I wanted to learn frontside boards & nose grabs...

Most the time, snowboarders have something they want to work on, or to find out, or decide...

So what problem are you trying to fix right now? How to get those linked turns? Which board to buy? Which resort to go to? etc.

Cheers,
Gav

Hmmm where to start.

Still trying to decide whether to buy a 09/10 or 10/11 NS Evo
I know where I'm going this Winter. - Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Fernie, Red Mountain and Schweitzer.
On hill I want to work on my park stuff.

If it helps now is a good time to have a busted leg. I think its 6 weeks in plaster then a couple of months of gym to get the strength back and you should be good to go by Christmas!

Hope it heals fast!

Hey,

nice collection of destinations! Tres jealous. So is there much difference between the two boards? I assume the older version is a little cheaper?

Unfortunately mine isn't a cast job, it's a pin, the full length of the femur. No chance of shredding this coming season, but hopefully the season after. Hoping to maybe be able to get some snowboarding in next summer/autumn, but don't know if that will be too soon.

Cheers

Sorry for you injury. I had a broken hand that robbed me of half the season in '08-'09.

For the '11-'12 season, I am undecided on what new gear to pick up. I'm seriously considering picking up a Turbo Dream and Rome 390 boss bindings. I am also considering selling my current 2010 Flow NXT-FSE so I can pick up the 2011 NXT-FSE just because I really love the color and I get substantial discount (I should be able to sell it for the price of a discounted 2011 model).

I also want to move up to bigger kickers now. I ran into a mental hurdle in '07 after hurting myself on a jump. My confidence on jumps was completely ran into the ground and it took me this long to even start hitting kickers again. Which is strange because I didn't have a problem hitting natural jumps. Just kickers in the park

The main 'problem' I'm trying to fix is to get more avy training so I can hit up the backcountry with confidence!

As far as my actual riding goes, just trying to continually progress in all areas.

I got trees just about down, now I want to work on hucking cornices. I don't mind doing it, but i tend to put my weight too far back, and end up on my ass. I read on some of the threads here to do a board grab to keep myself upright and balanced, and also make sure to keep my shoulders in line with the board... guess I just need time on the mountain to practice.

This is going to sound silly. I can do some small jumps, carve, black dimaonds, and all that good stuff... But...

I can't get off lifts! Something about my backleg not being secured to the binding really throws me off. I'm a mess at getting off lifts. 1/4times I'll crash, probably wipe someone out as well.

Right now I'm recovering from a dislocated ulna at the wrist. Currently 6 weeks in and I'm looking at 3-6 months total for it to be fully stable. Right now it will pop out while putting my contacts in if I'm not careful.

I finished last year trying 360's. Only got the spin right once but didn't complete due to lack of speed. Thats where I'll be starting off once the cobwebs are gone.

Buying a car with AWD and capable of driving in a decent amount of snow.
Not buying a 2011 Capita and opting for a season pass.
