please give me constructive criticism utah trip

Hi all. I would just like to thank everyone on here for all the great information I find here. Ive been trolling around but never really posted anything.

I just wanted to share a video of some great fun I had recently in Utah a week ago. We got super lucky and got dumped on in snowbird and brighton. About 15 inches.

I would love to hear your thoughts on my riding technique, as this is my first season with about 6 trips total, ever. This is my first time out west. Ive only ridden on the icecoast. First time on some fresh POW too! if back legs didnt burn so much I could've surfed over the bumps longer. I don't mind any constructive criticism at all. Please have at it.

In a couple of the clips I wasn't really trying to lay into any heavy carves. Just cruising having a blast. I was riding an Arbor Coda 162. I left the NS cobra at home because luggage was overweight unfortunately. Thanks!!!

The first thing you need to do is take the damn go pro out of your hand and focus soley on your riding. The whole "look at me I'm snowboarding" thing is drawing your focus away from actually shredding better. I get that powder days are fun to document but there's no reason any other time for you to be recording.

Thanks I appreciate that. To be honest I solely only recorded for memories. It was a trip a of a lifetime for me. I wasn't recording the whole day. But I'll keep that in mind. How would you be able to see how I ride without a video? I've seen other members ask others for a video when they asked for tips.

Usually a helmet mount with someone else recording you will be the best way to tell. Not knocking and understand it was a trip but still, even in powder, your entire focus should be on riding and not getting shots. From what I could tell after watching your video briefly you've got the basics down and progression just comes from repetition. Ride as much as possible.

I can totally relate to wanting to see yourself riding for the memory sake of the trip.
Deacon and my family where at a very cool resort mid-season. It was very hard to capture any film as the terrain was intense for us and really did take all our focus just to ride there. NO WAY in the world I was using a pole. I did get some POV helmet shots of the tip of my board and the terrain
but I get your point it's not the same.

Pray for a long memory so you can always remember that trip.

I need some friends who are enthusiastic about snowboarding and can really shred. It's hard to progress when they don't even know who Travis Rice is.
Went with some friends to CO the first time and I ended up riding by myself on the blues and blacks where my friends were struggling with greens.

lol I hear you. Im not just enthusiastic about it. Im passionate about it.

Riding by yourself? Thats no fun at all. My friends that have been riding for several years, were actually happy and surprised I didnt slow them down. I guess even though it was my first season, I had so much motivation to get better to be able to keep up or surpass my buddies.
