Snowboard Cross Questions!
Hello guys, this year I've gotten involved with snowboard team at school, and we do boarder-cross races. So far looking online for tips and how to practice i've found little to nothing, and would really love to become better at it.
For the most part, I understand pumping rollers, and the snow is faster than air(But not how it is sometimes better to pre-ollie and whatnot), and the base is faster than the edges, and you should go flat high into berms rather than tight turns. The rest I'm clueless about.
Also, terminology is an issue with me. Once again I know the basics (roller, berm, step-down, step-up, roll-in, etc.) but am unaware with things like "butangs"(I've heard "If you jump the butang you'll save lots of time," but unaware of what I should be jumping.)
The last thing I'm wondering is what is the universal term for boarder-cross? I've heard SBX, boardercross, snowboard cross, snowboarder cross; and I just don't know what to call it to get desired results in Google and what-not.
Thank you greatly in advance for helping me improve!
