Other advice for a ride through is to look for flaws in the obsticles. Stuff like trenches in the knuckle of a landing or ditches in the run ups to jibs.

I agree totally. My 180s aren't really 180's even though these are probably the simplest of the rotations. I'm getting there, but I wear, tailbone pads, wrist guards and helmet. Healing takes a long time the older you get. I don't want the down time if I can prevent it. Like I and many others said, I want to throw the tricks not make a fashion statement.

I bought the download version of the SA vids and put them on my ipod. One of the unexpected benefits (although I should have expected it) is that I can watch the vids over and over when I'm on transit or otherwise on my butt, and I'm pretty much starting to memorize them. By the time I hit the slopes I'll have the moves in muscle memory.

Yes! That's something really cool about these DVDs. I do the same thing and love the fact that in between classes I can work on snowboarding, something I've never been able to do before. All in all though do you like the instruction?

In the end, of all the vids, my only complaint was with the advanced buttering video, which as I said felt rushed. Could have used a couple more minutes of slo-mo closeups of some of thoese tricks.

The rest of it just has me stoked to get started.

Yep. And what is funny is I see people trying (and I stress "trying") to land them looking forward all the time. Both on the hill and on Youtube wanna be instructional videos.

Now you know the proper technique!
