Hey my friend was looking at that and asked me if it was any good but I couldn't tell him because I don't know. So it's pretty good? Did it help him learn alot? What did you learn from these videos? Please respond. Thanks!

Hey whats up yah it is pretty good the thing that it helped me on the most was my rotations helping me stick my 540's i wasn't able to pull them enough, i'd either over do it or not but it helps sit on the right angel of the board. my little brother said it helped him more with his jibbin and airs. but i've been snowboarding longer so i have other stuff down

Cool. Yeah I just talked to my my friend and he wants me to ask you a couple of questions. Will this video help him learn 360s? Switchups on rails/boxes? And other things? (He just started out this year ;] )

It goes through spins pretty thoroughly. The actual technique it teaches for all spins is the same (except they also teach counter-rotation for 180's) so doing 5's and onwards is the same as a 3 but with a more aggressive rotation. I would recommend it, I split the costs with a friend and it was money well spent, haven't had the opportunity to use it though, a month and a half now and the season starts for me.

The videos cover the following categories:

Tuning
Intro to Jumping (Glide, Pop, Ollie)
Intermediate Jumping
180's
360's
Advanced Spinning (5's and onwards)
Intro to Jibbing
Balance Bar
50/50's
FSBS
BSBS
Advanced Jibbing (Presses, 1's, 2's and 3's on and off, pretzels)
Hand-Plants

Probably a few other sections I have missed, especially within the advanced sections. The lessons come in goofy and regular and the spinning is all taught in switch as well. As you can see it is quite thorough. I heard they will be releasing some more videos soon that you will get if you have bought the videos in the last year or so.

If you have the spare cash I would consider it, if you email them asking a question they will usually send you a 20% discount coupon.

They're also adding vids. They have a subscription plan for people who already bought the videos. Especially the downloadable, so you can get any later additions without having to buy the whole thing again once they've been added. I got lucky because they gave one year free subs for people who ordered during a certain time.

They've just added an intro to buttering, and they'll have an advanced one coming out soon too. There's supposed to be some pow vids coming up too.

@Your Realatives - You might want to tell your friend to hold off on buying. At least until they add the latest vids to the package. That way he won't have to buy the sub for awhile. Unless he plans on applying what he learns during the summer, I'd hold off on it.
