teaching them how to bail properly is also extremely important. it seems like a lot of injuries happen not because of actual falls, but because of how we freak out during them. i don't know much about this and i don't want to give out bad information; i used to breakdance so falling and getting up is pretty second nature to me.

good luck with everything.

You should "Tebow" after every teaching segment.

Give them the basics; goofy or reg, stay on an edge, falling leaf, then make sure they're having a good time..they wont get it all at once but if they enjoy themselves,chances are they will actually want to learn in the future
I probably do hahah I guess I got ahead of myself when I said "Yeah!" When they asked me... I guess that I thought that because I work with 70 to 100 elementary kids daily I would have it easy. BIG MISTAKE. =P But I'm willing to at least give it a shot. If I can get them to achieve the falling leaf, I'll feel accomplished hahah

If you decide to hire an instructor you should inquire about hiring a private instructor and compare the price to paying for five group lessons. Where I teach, a private instructor can be shared by up to six students at no extra charge and costs less than paying for five group lessons. An hour or two with an instructor would give them a good start and allow you some time to ride, then you could spend the rest of the day helping them progress.

When the people needed fish did Jesus teach them to fish? No. He took the easy way out and used his powers to give them fish. Take the easy way out like Jesus and get them a lesson.

More serious now, send them all a link to Free Learn to Snowboard Videos | SnowProfessor Those videos were a huge help when I was starting out
