Default Snowboard Addiciton Freestyle DVD?

Is it worth it to buy it? I want them on DVD but it is kind of expensive so I was wondering if any one knew if I could download them then burn them to a CD or DVD? And if you've bought this please give reviews or how much you improved after watching.

I Plan on downloading them from the S.A website.

They have downloadable videos you can later burn to a DVD, but if you're talking about ripping them from a free download then no, and not cool.

Their basic 360 video is a great instructional for anyone learning spins and I've heard a lot of good things about the rest of their videos. It's not the end-all, it still comes down to you as a rider to do the correct movements, commitment and ability to get the trick down. The price isn't expensive if you compare it to the amount of private lessons it would cover and the price of them.

I would say YES, definitely.

I've written some reviews of their material here:
SnowboardAddiction Freestyle Lessons afterbang

There are 3 and they're in chronological order, so start at the bottom if you want to read all.

I can summarize one key benefit for you:
- I can do nose grabs now! It was a grab that's eluded me for ever. So stoked about that.

They also helped me big time with frontside boardslides, although I could kinda do them a little, so just needed some better direction.

In summary: their presentation of concepts is excellent. I haven't seen better, yet. They mix theory with practical exercises. I would definitely recommend them.

Cheers, Gavin

PS: are you familiar with the concept of rotation vs. counter-rotation?

If not, it's a common theme throughout their material, and I think it helps anyone who hasn't yet thought about the difference...

I wrote something about that, too, if you're interested:
Rotation and counter-rotation

I purchased the 4 set volume on jumping and jibbing. I liked it. I'm new to the sport, last year was my 1st year. I learned a lot, I got them after the season, low on funds. SO I have studied them and look forward to using what I learned on the hill this year.

I did watch their free videos and those did help me a lot. I did my 1st indy last year and my jumps were much smoother. Hoping to clean up my 1's and start 3's.

Very easy to follow, contains both Goofy and Regular videos, iPod version to upload to your iPod, great graphic overlay of the paths of approach, take off and landing. They break everything down into very easy to understand and follow and then put to use

i signed up to get their advanced spinning video. After a few days they sent me an email saying that they would take $10 off the download price if i bought the whole package. Not sure if they're still doing that. You also get to be a subscriber for a year, and so far they have released a beginner and advanced buttering video, and a learn to ride video (maybe good if you want to help someone learn). Apparently they're working on a powder riding video, and a half pipe video, which i hope is out before the season starts. All up definitely a worthwhile buy, a lot more attention to detail than trick tip videos you'll see on transworld etc. I just hope i can put it all into practice!

I got like 30% or 45% off or something just by signing up on their site.
Email and ask, all they can say is no. I can't recall her name but very nice and easy to work with.
