Average Over 30 Rider Looking to Progress (snowboardaddiction vid worth it?)

I am 30 year old boarder with a late start. Started at 25. Now I am able to ride most groomed runs except double blacks. I rarely catch air but I am able to straight ling most blue runs. But I am looking to progress my riding without going park. Mentally...I am not able to get over the danger of the park at 30. I recently saw a teaser video on snowboardaddiction.com. They say it for someone just like me. I was wondering if anyone has seen this intermediate riding video? Is it worth the $27? Thanks in advance for any responses.

I am a mid 30's rider that just got back into boarding 3 years ago and I bought the SA freestyle vid download set. I will say that it has improved my riding a ton!! When i watched them i thought ya all this stuff is obvious but the things i did from the vids that i wasn't before made a huge difference.

I had no plans to ride park but to only learn to do more airs. the gradual progress the vids taught through put me in the park to give it a try. Needless to say I bought an a freestyle park board this year cause i liked it so much.

Nev and his team do a great job and I would recommend it. I have the one you are talking about but have not watched it yet so i cant comment on that particular one as of now.

I would recomend the freestyle set download though i dont regret it one bit and i think you get 6 months free of the subscription so you can download all the extra vids they have there too.

As a disclaimer I am in no way affiliated with Nev or Snowboard addiction.

I also subscribe to get all the other vids they release through the year for ''free''

Word.

Snowboard addiction + lessons(when you can) + going on consecutive days = instant progression

The SA videos help you wrap your head around how to do the tricks, so when you take a lesson, you're getting more feedback about the later stages of what you're trying to do. Going on consecutive days helps reinforce what you learned.

I'm 30 and had never been on a snowboard until I was 26. You just gotta ride harder and more often to catch up.

I have found that being in good shape helps. I do not think age really plays much of a factor. I am 39 and avoid the park in fear of recovery time and being able to put food on the table. Same reason I no longer ride however I do miss the race track.

If you can't ride a double black don't go in the fucking park.

start with ground tricks (butters etc.) and work up to boxes then other jib features and rails. start catching air on rollers (outside the park) and other natural terrain. gradually find bigger features. eventually you'll be ready for the park even if you decide you're never going to send it on a 50-footer you'll be ale to get in there for a few laps and have a good time.

(I'm 32, didn't really start riding park until I was like 29)
