Also on a side note: In the promo video I do show a lot of tricks, but I cut a lot out because I ran out of dialogue and I didn't want things to get too boring for my presentation. So that isn't ALL that you learn, just some clips to give you an idea.

Again any more questions please feel free to ask!
Cool. I have a buddy that decided to pick up snowboarding and decided one day to jump before he really new what he was doing on the board...er with broken leg and then a retreat back to skis was the end result. I understand even doing it the right way there are risk, but I at least want to understand the right way for jumping before I try. Actually sent an email to snowboard addiction as well, I am seriously considering buying the set, I wouldn't mind learning the boxes as well...

Hey that's exactly why I was so interested in these vids! I don't like getting in over my head without knowing what I'm doing first and that is the biggest reason it was helpful to me. If you're comfortable enough riding down slopes then do check out the freestyle boxset as it is the cheapest way to get all the material. If you're still kind of uncomfortable on a board, get the learn 2 ride video first. Use that dvd to get comfortable first before you dump 55 (- a 10% discount) on these vids, and so you KNOW you're getting you're money's worth and not just jumping into something. Always remember though, never do something on a board you aren't comfortable with. But figure out what it takes to get comfortable.

Best of luck man and I hope this helps!

As appreciation of letting me post on your forum I'm giving everyone a discount as well. Use: SBA10 to get a 10% discount from their site if you do decide to check out their product.

Anyways here is the link to the vid:

YouTube - Snowboard Addiction Video Review - My Thoughts On This Company

They also have several free videos on youtube so be sure to look for them! Just type snowboard addiction and you'll find them.

If you have any questions I'd be more than happy to answer them at n8dahwg@vt.edu
Enjoy and keep up the good shredding!

I am pretty much new to snowboarding, this is my third season, and to be honest first didn't even counted as I went only twice . Second I been going almost every week for a total of 10 days so I am very much beginner, this year my goal is to ride more and even though towards the end of last season I felt comfortable I still went ahead and got the Learn2ride video few weeks ago and man I wish I would have something like that when I started, what a good explanation, and so many exercises. To be honest I would recommend these guys to all new snowboarders even before they get any gear . Well explained and awesome quality I will take it with me on the hill once the snow gets hear .

I have been a life long skier until last year when I switched over to check out this whole snowboarding thing. At the time I had no clue how to snowboard and none of my friends did either. So I got on youtube and watched the very badly produced instructional video's that seems like almost every knob wannabe snowboard instructor produces. I got enough information from those to where I wouldn't kill myself the first time on the hill.

I have to say I picked up snowboarding REALLY fast and after about a month on the hill I was jumping, hitting 180's and doing basic tricks in the park like 50-50's. So I went back to youtube to try and find more info on doing tricks and what I found was very disappointing until I stumbeled accross the Snowboard Addiction videos. I bought the Freestyle DVD box set. WOW!!!!!

By the end of last season I was stomping 360's, buttering all over the mountain, and was able to do nose/tail boardslides. Tricks that I know I would have busted my ass MANY times on if it had not been for the DVD's!

A part of buying the DVD set I also got a free 1 year subscription to the members area of their website where I was able to download the "Learn to Ride" video. Damn do I wish I had that video when I first started!! Would have saved me a ton of time searching youtube.

So now I have 100% converted over to snowboarding and will never ski again. My only regret is that I didn't switch over sooner. I have had more fun snowboarding in one season then 20 seasons of skiing.

As for the Snowboarding Addiction videos... I VERY highly recommend them to anybody just starting off snowboarding with the "Learn to Ride" video. All the way to the intermediate guys looking to really step up your game with jumps and park features. As for the advanced/pro riders, these videos might be fun for you to watch and you might take away a tip or two to tighten up your back 9. But as far as learning something new its doubtfull. They dont teach how to do a frontside 1260 double cork or anything like that.

So for the 99% of us that are not Travis Rice caliber and still trying to get our 3's and 5's on lock, these videos were meant for us!

I'm very likely going to buy at least one download set. If it sucks though, I'll be loud and obnoxious about it
