at the end of the day, i started on some front boards, and I rode a few away but they werent very clean looking, nor did i get them on video...but ima keep at it!



and this is similar to the first one, but with a better boardslide and no 180 out of the 5050

damn, how do i embed these fb vids???

You can always try a link or load it to another site then link that.
You or an admin can try something like http://forum.yetanotherforum.net/yaf...o-youtube.aspx although this is a year old but it does not hurt to search how to embed FB video to forum site. That's how I found this.

okay, i put the direct links, and i think its working, cause i also changed the privacy setting on the vids to be viewable by the public....lemme know whatcha think and any pointers some you pros might have for me are always welcome

very nice, those were your 1st ones correct. That feeling is so awesome when you actually nail a trick you've been working on or wanting to do. Hopefully this week I will be at your level and try some myself. I was so stoked to just ride that long grab rail this week.
Keep up the progress

thanks :thumbsup:, yup, that was my first day of boardslides, started 5050s at end of last season, then first trip this year I learned the 180 off from a 5050, and now on this second time this year learned front and back boards...my front boards are still a lil sketchy tho and didnt get any on film...good luck to you as well, way easier actually then the way we all build it up in our heads....just go for it, realize your mistake and correct...think i only slipped out onto my butt like 3 times the whole day...and on that bigger step up rail, i rode away on every attempt of the day...just commit, and you got it

Aghh good ole Cat. Man I forgot how much fun snowboarding is in the South this time of year. So slushy just like a spring day. Bad part about it is it could be 40 one day and the next a high of 15. Thats not really fun due to ice. Congrats on the boardslides. Always fun learning new tricks :thumbsup:
