Snowprofessor vids are right on. Snowolf's vids and SnowProRick's vids have helped me immensely. The fucking snowball drill arm whipper is fucking HI-larious. And why is she wearing an old school ski suit??? Priceless.

Every turn is a blessing.

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).

Don't worry about the cheese your instructions are fabulous.

This is an old thread to bump, I know but add my two thumbs up for these videos.

Rick and his (long suffering) sister do a great job helping noobs like me improve our boarding quickly.

I took some lessons last year and not once were my feet, my precious feet (to quote rick) mentioned.

Watching these videos (and Snowolfs's) have made a big difference.

Great job guys and thanks.

Definitely thumbs up for these videos. They helped me learn the concepts after my first clueless day on the hill with no instruction.

These videos are basically how I learned to snowboard too!

Managed to start linking turns at the end of my first day

Very sound videos, I agree and a good way to get the basics visualized.

But as a beginner, please don't use web videos as your only source of learning. Lessons are definitely the way to go, mostly because you can't look at yourself while riding. Your personal posture, balance and so on are something that should be looked at by an instructor. When you link your first turns it usually doesn't look as cool as it feels .

I have a friend who used web vids to start off. When I went riding with him for the first time he felt very good about it. I showed him the GoPro footage afterwards and he almost choked because he never realized his upper body was at an almost 90 degree angle while riding. He's not very athletic but that's how he kept his balance and even worse, he got used to it. I really had to kick his ass in order to get his upper body straight for a whole run...

I think the videos are ok. I am not really a fan of the later videos that deal with the park riding though. I find snowboard addiction far superior. With that said, SA doesn't have great beginner riding videos :-)

So it just depends where you are in your riding and what you want to work on.

I think a better answer would be to say don't rely on one source when learning. The videos can help people progress. So can lessons.

My first season I learned solely from youtube and having my gf record me from time to time. In my second season I got my CASI level 1 .. they can be quite aggressive with form. So, I would say videos worked well for me.
