Snowboard Addiction, worth it?!

Title says most of it, i've been following these guys a lot lately and am thinking of investing in some videos. I just want to know from somebody who has some of their videos, if it is THAT helpful. I hit jumps, do rails, ride pipe, all decently. I just think I could use some professional tips and whatnot to help me better my riding without busting my ass any help is appreciated!

I haven't really checked out the videos, but I can say that these guys are honest about what they do and are also into it.

100% worth it. It's not some youtube video, they're actually really good and explain all the tricks in an easy to understand way.

Yeah, I gotta give respect to SA, really helped me with my jumping. I used to get a bunch of speed, speed check once or twice, point it at the jump, and hope for the best. Everything while I was in the air was a blur. It was fine for the smaller stuff but when I stepped up to the larger park jumps, it cost me a separated shoulder, a couple hundred bucks in physio, and a year of piss poor physical conditioning. One 40 min video and I learned how to approach the jump, balance in the air, spot landings, lock in the basic grabs, and ride away. The break down is a lot more in-depth than your standard "Leave the lip in a slight carve, look over your shoulder, and you'll stomp a 7" YouTube video.

seriously consider the downloads instead. Cheaper, more convenient IMO, and once you put them on your ipod you can review them anytime on the hill. I watch them while on transit to and from work some days.

As others have said, way higher quality content than youtube (possible exception of snowolf's stuff)

Alright will do, but unfortunetlly i don't have an ipod. Lucky me, my cat knocked my laptop off my desk and broke it, so i'll be spending a lovely 400+ on one of those. I would consider taking some from my bank acc for a touch, but with the stupid camera the prices are back at $200. Damm apple haha. But i'd have to agree, Snowolf's stuff is pretty nice especially for youtube.

Just have one fast question is you guys are still looking at this forum-For the freestyle package, that includes ALL of their videos right? If so then i'm without a doubt investing $55 dollars for all of that.

I downloaded the buttering vids. They give great explanations and the video slow mo's really help in explaining the proper technique and the where/how to shift your weight. I just wished I saved more and just bought the whole set instead. The free 6 month subscription to video updates is cool too.
