Visualization

What are your thoughts on visualizing before dropping in? Do you think it really works?

Yes, deffo! You can do it in any sport, vizualizing it will prepare you mentally.

I think its a great help and do it all the time. (i have said this many times before so i just copied it from another post) Snowboarding like all other action sports is all about commitment. if im staring down a feature or a sketchy hit, i visualize myself doing it, and i may sit there for a little bit just visioning what i want it to look like and going through the motions in my head. once i have imagined what i want to do enough so i feel content, i stand up. once i stand up and get moving in my head it is go time, and i just push out any second thoughts or thoughts about all of the ways i can get hurt out of my head. i replace those thoughts with focused concentration on what i am doing and making sure i hit it like i planned and to the best of my abilities.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
