I just recently tried snowboarding for the first time at my local resort. I did not take a lesson and went with my friends... I can def say I left with a bruised derrière and sore wrists it was fun though!
Same, butt and wrists. I couldn't stand up from my butt so I'd roll over to my stomach to get up... Which is fine until your heel edge catches, then it's all bad from there. My head hurts just thinking about it ha
First day snowboarding.... Well, after falling on my butt all day I did it one more time, but on ice. Next,I told my family I was going to quit snowboarding and going back to skiing. After a week of skiing I went back to snowboarding and had a blast! success
Our first time out was the day after Christmas this year. It had been dumping so the million and one times I fell it was pretty much on a pillow. The next week we went back and it hadn't snowed since the first time out. I was bruised all over. I sprained my thumb on the third trip, but nothing a little sport tape can't handle.
