anyone in the NYC area want to teach me to improve my snowboarding skills?
 
i wouldnt say i am a beginner. i would call myself an intermediate and looking for some private instruction on this forum board versus hiring someone at the mountain. I live in nyc and was hoping someone might want to take a day trip with me to VT? you spend the day with me helping me improve. ill pay for your bus/lift ticket. i want to take my skills to the next level but can only do so much by reading whats on this board. i think i need someone to ride with me, watch me and pull me alongside to make corrections and suggestions.

thanks

what's wrong with your boarding brah? what are you trying to learn?

i feel like i cant get any better until im formally instructed and guided. nothing isnt really wrong with it per say. i just want to get better and in order to reach that next level i feel as if i need someone to help me with that.

Go riding with some guys better than you, or just have a chat with some boarders at the mountain? They absolutely will be willing to help you out!

i usually board only with guys or girls better than i but some just cant teach. would rather board with someone who can explain better. like a teacher!

Sounds like you should get a lesson then from the mountain. Go with a Pro

+1 on a lesson from the mountain, even just an hour or two of private instruction could be very beneficial.

yep considered those options but wanted to see first if anyone on this board were interested in doing a day trip for free and getting boarding with meals out of it!

I dont no how you would feel about being taught by a 13 year old but by all means im down with it. No need to pay for anything. Shoot me a pm if you are interested

The problem with getting a lesson from a non-pro is they may teach you things that are wrong and set you back in the long run. Granted, this could happen with a profession as well, but it is far less likely.
