I think most of their tips are spot on as well. They go through a good progression and the format of the site is overall very nicely put together. The videos very geared for beginners, but if someone wants to take time out of their day and make videos to help put snowboarding out there like snowolf, snowprofessor or the many others, we should be grateful. Comparatively, there aren't as many ski tutorial videos.

I used them to teach my girlfriend to ride. She's pretty good now. But if you want to learn freestyle check out snowboardaddiction.com you won't find anything better than that.

Do yourself a favor and put her in a lesson. I admit when I see people in a realtionship teaching the other to ride i laugh inside each and every time.

lol, it's funny you mention that. I took my gf skiing a couple of weeks ago. It was exactly three hours after we started before she would even listen to a word I said. Most of what I heard was yelling and me blocking it out. It was her first time out.

We actually show someone in a cut away boot CRUSHING a grape. I'm not sure where you got to NOT do that.

Thanks to all above for the kind words. Although I am a little offended that someone said we were only a little cheesy... we are usually going for extra cheesy.

We are working on more intermediate, advanced and park videos, but life is getting in the way a little bit (though if anyone can get me a good job, that would help).

yeah, we laughed at that too. had to re-shoot that scene like 6 times to get one version without laughter. plenty more cheese to come in our upcoming videos. we will be doing more intermediate, advanced videos and a few more park episodes (moguls, steeps, slush, trees, 4 common intermediate mistakes, 180s, 360s, fs boardslides and a few more). all are filmed, but SnowProRick hasn't had as much time to edit. it takes time to edit in that many layers of cheese.

Yes you said enough to "crush a grape but not so smash it." I guess thats good advice to give a beginner but I feel that as you get more experience you can easily keep your balance while putting alot of pressue on your toes during toeside turns. That extra pressure is really needed when you're making sharp turns or riding in difficult conditions

Glad to hear you will be uploading new videos, can't wait.
