What snowboard tips & guides does snowboardingforum need?

Ahoy, I need your input on the future of the snowboardingforum's tips/guides.

What I'm doing:

So awhile back I volunteered to do a much needed update, re-do and re-organizing for all the stickied snowboard riding tutorials and guides that are/were on this forum. Killclimbz and the other mods have said they'd be happy for me to do this and they'll sticky threads as I re-create and re-do everything, so I've been planning everything out and piecing together what needs to be done.

Basically I'll be creating high end snowboard tutorial videos to replace all the current old, missing or old-of-date tutorials that we have on the forum.

The question for you guys

Are there any snowboard guides and tutorials that AREN'T AND HAVEN'T been available on the forum that you think should be added to the forum?

I'm already working on re-doing everything that is (and was) on the forum previously, from how-to gear guides, to beginner and intermediate tutorials and also trick tip tutorials, but are there any snowboard tutorial topics beyond that which haven't been covered previously that you'd like to see on the forum as I update and re-do the guides?

I'll be starting this re-do from around Jan 6th-7th-ish onwards after I get back from Christmas break, so this is your chance to have some input in how the tips section of snowboardingforum grows.

About me:

So for those who don't know me or are wondering who this random guy re-doing all the guides on the forum is...

I'm Jed and I've been a regular on the forum for a couple years now. Besides being a forum regular, I'm a snowboard instructor and I run a snowboard training company teaching people how to snowboard using online tips and video, so I'm kind of suited for this task of re-making all the guides on this forum.

Not to mention I spend a lot of time answering a lot of snowboard questions on this forum and I know as well as any other poster that it can get old repeating the same answers over and over. It would be nice to have tutorial videos already on the forum for each scenario to direct members to when we explain certain techniques/tips to new members.

So... are there any tip guides that you think should be added to the forum outside of the standard gear guides, riding tutorials and trick tip tutorials?

i think it would be really cool to have official trick tutorial videos and for things not made yet if someone wants to add a trick tutorial to the list of videos it would get sent to review to make sure its high quality before its like on an official forum list youtube just doesnt get the job done with all the smaller but good videos being buried under countless other videos and what not haha

Basically my idea for the trick tutorial videos is to put together a 'jump start kit' of sorts that covers everything a snowboarder would need to know before having the ability to learn tricks on their own.

So basically there'll be a couple videos on buttering covering ollies, nollies and basic presses, then a couple videos on jumping and spinning (and maybe another video on inverts if people need), then a couple videos on jibbing for things like rail approach lines, 50/50s and boardslides. These would be very long, but detailed videos as oppose to having 500 short videos on 500 different tricks.

I actually have that set of videos almost all done since I can borrow some footage from my company's paid tutorial library that I don't mind putting for free on the forum.

I think that's the best option since it'll basically cover anything any forum poster should ever need on the freestyle front, because once they learn and understand those basics they should have the tools to go further on their own without needing anymore trick tip videos.

It's kind of like the hidden trick people don't realize with trick tip tutorials. You don't really need 5000 trick tip tutorials for every trick, you just need a few very good tutorials on certain core basics like rotation, jumping, pop, approach lines etc. and every other trick later is actually a combination of those core basics.

Anyhow, that's my plan for the freestyle front of tutorials.

How about tips for the mental aspect of the sport? Overcoming fear, dealing with setbacks, etc. Everyone likes to say "just have some balls and go for it" but in reality that is definitely easier said than done for a lot if riders, especially beginners.
