I wish they could all be like that sadly they are the few rather than the many(in terms of students anyway).
Definitely try some things out, it may work for you or may not. I'd like to hear how it goes. I think we just have very different styles when it comes to teaching. Neither is better, they are just different.

As a matter of fact they did, for both of us. Being my first time out this year, and riding on a rapidly melting 6" base, those vids helped me focus on my technique. We watched them over lunch, and a couple other people were looking over our shoulders. Had these 2 dudes join us, and got an extra round of beers out of the deal. So I guess if we ever meet in real life then I owe ya a couple

Like I said, all the tips(except the shroom one, didn't try that lol) helped and I couldn't have done it without you guys. IMO this is the best SB'ing forum on the net, sure you can get discounts and win free shit on others, but no place else can you get this level of personal advice.

Hey Snow would you mind sending those lesson videos to me as well please. My family is coming to Colorado with me in January, and I've been tasked with teaching my brothers and sisters how to snowboard.
