First time today
Okay, so I went to the ski resort for the first time ever to try snowboarding.
It was a bit awkward, I was just standing at the bottom looking at the others first, before I went and had a chat with an instructor.
So he gave me some basic tips about balance, took me to a SMAAAALL hill and had me practice getting up and sliding downwards while breaking on my heel-side. This is really the only thing I got to do over the 3 hours I were there because getting up on my heel-side was literally impossible, and when I got up on my toeside, I just started sliding. Eventually I got down from the hill, although I fell at the bottom because the speed surprises me and not being able to fall sideways is unusual. xD
After three hours of failing and trying I was tired. Dunno about progression so far, but I'll go back tomorrow as the resort is 3 minutes away from work. x)
Thought I'd just share my experience, I'll come with an update tomorrow. :]
