Would skiing help my snowboarding
 
Ok crazy dumb question. I am progressing on snowboarding and have made it my focus. But I have a chance to try skiing (haven't done it since I was 5). Would there be any benefit to my snowboard riding...prob not since I get the concept of edge control but just curious what you all have to say.

You do realize you put this in the Music forum......

and no it will just get you to open your shoulders more while riding

Damn I didn't mean to do that! Sorry. How do you delete a Thread?

don't apologize it's not a big deal
you can message an admin and they can move it or you can delete the thread and just put in the chat area.

This may sound crazy, but snowboarding will help you become better at snowboarding.

nothing really, but it will give you an advantage of knowing how to do both once you learn how to ski. but i choose snowboarding cuz its' just FUN!:thumbsup:

I think you'll find contention on this point but IMO I think doing one will definitely help the other.

I was skiing for six or seven years until I switched over to snowboarding when I was 12 years old. Haven't looked back since.

I was a little ripper on my skis and I can honestly say that skiing most definitely helped me learn how to ride better. Balance and edge control if anything.

I don't think you're really answering the OP's question. I totally agree with you that doing one first (either one) will make it easier to learn the other afterwards. But the OP seems to be asking about learning both or doing both at the same time, and whether that will help either one.

I don't think it will personally. Time spent skiing is time not spent snowboarding. Yes, time spent skiing is still time spent learning how to handle lifts, edges, types of snow, etc, but you won't learn the "common" stuff any faster than you would on a snowboard.

I do think it's a good idea to know how to do both, but there's no speed-of-learning advantage.

Great answer! And sorry about posting this on the Music page...I have no clue how I did that. Anyway to fix that?
