Default Switch Riding

Does anyone have tips for learning to ride switch?
The problem for me is that I feel very comfortable riding goofy in snowboarding and skateboarding(I love carving bowls goofy). However, when going off of jumps on my snowboard, I feel more comfortable going off regular . I want to get used to riding switch(regular) so I can perform tricks in both stance with ease.

Any tips for learning to ride switch over summer?

The best way to get more comfortable with anything is to do it.

Dedicate a whole day to it. Then take a couple of runs a day. Then switch it up on every run.

on the flat cat tracks ride switch.

when going to the lift from a run 100 yards go switch.

one more thing, you don't have to have 15/-15 or symmetrical angles to ride switch or even a twin.

Like everyone else said, the more you ride switch, the better at it you will be.

The thing about learning to ride switch is to remember to step your terrain back a notch or two. When progressing on anything in riding, you have two factors to consider; terrain and task. Try not to step up task and terrain at the same time. If learning a new task, drop the terrain level. If stepping up the terrain, drop your task level. To improve your switch riding, do it more and on easier terrain then revert back to your standard stance when the terrain gets more challenging. Eventually if you do this, you will find that you can ride switch well on ever more challenging terrain and with more speed.

Just that my parents think snowboarding has no future and I shouldn't waste my time. :/ They won't take me up to the slopes more than once or twice a year. >:O I hate living in redneck Georgia.

First, your parents are right, second kick some butt in school. Then when you are paying the bills. Live near any mountain you want. Until then kick azz on your board twice a year…
