Default What is the best way to learn?

I used to snowboard maybe once a year, but now i love it. But for the last two years, i missed out on the snow due to military stuff(deployments to iraq) but now i am done with it. So i want to catch up fast. I live on 84 arces of just hills that could be used for some sweet air. I gave myself two years to get at a pro level, do you think it is possible?

Lessons. If that's not an option, SnowProfessor.com -- How to snowboard or SnoWolf's videos.

Nope.

Sorry but thinking pro level riding in 2 years after snowboarding maybe once a year, not gonna happen. Set yourself up with some realistic goals.

Depends on what you consider a pro level...

I'm not saying i will make a tour or anything like that after two years, but good enough to feel natural at it. I'm pretty decent now and i literally have nothing but time and open hills. So im sure i will be putting in costless hours a day snowboarding come winter. How do you think the average time is to feel natural?

Dude no offence but you have the wrong attitude, just go ride for 2 years and let everyone else talk about what "level" of skill you have achieved. If you are good everyone will know it, just go have fun, follow the winter around the world and live the dream, dont get caught up on being pro cause 99.9% of us just dont have what it takes to become a pro.

Thanks for the advice and no offense taken what so ever. I know it's a slim chance in hell i would go pro, but my main goal would be just to get better. Pro in that sense of it.

Thanks for the advice snowolf, working at the resort would be a little hard to do. But i can go everyday anytime and get maybe a season pass. I cant wait until next season so i can actually enjoy it this time. How would you suggest to increase your skills doing the summer? Riding a skateboard?

Snowolf once again thank you! You have been more then helpful, i will see what the resorts around here will have for becoming a part time instructor. Cardio is something i already do alot so i will keep that up. I'm sure i can find something that can fit around my schedule.

dude to be honest, don't let other smash u on this, although they might be right.]

I started snowboarding for my first time ever, in the end of last november, and as of today I can take down a black diamonds with out any problem, and be able to do some kickers and learning on the freestyle phase. I'm not saying how good i am, but I really like this sport and I am quite happy with my achievement.

I forgot to mention that i didn't do any instructor lesson stuff, but I went up more than 40 days this season, it's all about how dedicated you are to this sport.

And the really best way to learn this sport, is to FALL !!!, a lot, literally
