Snowboard Addiction - Video Instruction
 
Wasup everyone? My name is Nate Slemp and I'm a rep for a company called Snowboard Addiction. They're a relatively new company that specializes in quality snowboard instruction. They are the best of the best as far as teaching people how to tear it up. I made a little promo video for them and thought you guys might be interested.

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:

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!

So how do you prove a statement like that? Let's see some documentation.:D

The DVDs speak for themselves. I don't have to speak on their behalf, I just choose to

Fixed it for you.

I thought I recognized Chris H. He's a good man, guy's got serious skills. If the rest of the Video series is up to his level, I'd see value in them.

I'm a Virginia Tech student. I was given these dvd's for free because I said I would let my snowboard club at tech know what I thought of these dvds (a club of about 300 students). For my presentation I decided it would be easier to throw a video together to show them, so thats what I did. I then decided to throw it on youtube. So I do represent this company, but I'm not paid a salary, and these statements in my video are just my opinion. If you don't like my opinion then I apologize. But don't relate the quality of this instruction to me personally because they're completely different things.

I'd prefer to keep questions on this forum focused on the subject at matter: these dvds. If you have a question about them then please ask, if you have a question about me then please don't.

Thanks

Sorry if my response was a bit strong. From your initial post it sounded like a paid employee shilling a product.

The DVDs look well done. The content looks good with strong riders and at least one great coach. The filming and diagrams look good.

Here's a question about the DVDs, it looks like they feature AASI and CSIA coaches and methodology, are there other systems represented?

Fair enough. I noticed on the website they mention an intro to jumping section, but yet when I look at the descriptions of each of the videos it doesn't (jump vol1 and jump vol2) they only talk about 180's 360's etc, no mention of intro to jumping. Which video includes the intro to jumping? Is it the basic riding video?

I actually bought the dvds, and the Intro to jumping is actually on jumping vol 2. It covers all the basics of jumping. Just to add, i think these videos are well done and in depth, you just have to remember to think about it on the mountain. Great place to start for those looking to get a little more into it but not exactly go all out on private lessons

@ snowolf
Hey! Glad you put good use to these videos :). They really are pretty sweet and I feel you completely on being a visual learner. Personal coaching is probably the best thing, but these dvd's are a close second. Combine the two and I can imagine some really good results!

@Grizz
Hey my bad man. I should have specified a little better. I just want to make sure everyone knows I'm not just saying this for a paycheck. This stuff is really good.
On a side note I would absolutely love to work for these guys (if they happen to see this) haha. They put out good work and seem to have a fun time doing what they do best.
The main guy in the video (Nev Lepwood) is CASI lvl 1,2,3 certified, a CSF freestyle coach, and a CASI course evaluator. I'm not very well versed on what all this means to be honest. I can say this from watching the dvds though. They mention several times throughout the course of the dvds that the learning method is based directly on teachings at burton snowboard academy. I'd say it's a decent mix of other resources too but I feel like that's where the majority of this program is based off of.

@kysnowboarder
The intro to jumping is all very very well covered in the 1st jumping dvd. There is a section that takes you through lots of things before you even do rotations. It's mainly to get you comfortable in the air before you go flinging yourself all over the place in my opinion.

Again any more questions please feel free to ask!
