great advice from snowolf =D i've learned to appreciate riding moguls more and more as i get better at them. and yeah, sometimes i do occasionally get that skier giving me the "you shouldn't be here *snarl*" look. well, at least i'm assuming that's the reason why they look at me.

my big problem are the sketchy moguls where i'll go around one or two that're fine and powdery, but then i come around the next one and BAM, i slip on patch of ice. that, and the ones that're 2-3 feet high and packed in.

I actually prefer a cambered board in the bumps, if you are using fore-aft movements when you push down on that cambered board it gives you way more back to push you into that next turn. I remember 3 years ago when I moved to a burton hero I hated it in the bumps, I love my heritage in the bumps right now though.

thanks for all the inputs.i know the vid does not show much of my form and the depth(trough)on some of those bumps,but i'm pretty much squatting down and doing some skidded turns.i would ride over the big bumps across while looking for my next turn then i try to look 2-3 spot ahead but sometimes i'll get my turns to quick and i loose my spot.though my legs are burning its a great workout. i use to hate moguls but i'm tired of not able to go on those runs and i want to be able to ride it.i know my limits but moguls will NOT be one of them. i'm more to tackling this issue and actually enjoying it.Snowolf,that was looooooong,but appreciatedone thing i've notice though is that i'm more aggressive on my skidded turns when i need to when some runs get a little bumpy/sketchy and it does not freak me out and stop.

sorry,i mean no disrespect,i guess i'm more of a visual learner than reading it.though i would remember some of it i'd rather visualize. i guess thats why i do not read books but rather watch a movie when the subject/topic gets to long to read i start to wander out did'nt you have a video of mogul riding tutorial? i did watch "Sando's vid's" and that guy can board! that for me is real good but way out of my skill(for now)

other then the simple challenge of doing the moguls...why the fuck does anyone want to do them?

my riding buddy gives me a hard time cuz he thinks going in the moguls makes him more of a badass then me. i just think it makes him stupid.

doing them fast on skis is reasonably fun.

even doing them well on a snowboard isn't cool (i use this term OBJECTIVELY lol)

when friends give me a hard time about wanting to go through moguls or don't understand why i do them, i tell them if it's part of the mountain, why not? why limit yourself to only certain trails and avoid others just because some provide more of a challenge? that's the way i look at it. i don't give my friends a hard time about NOT riding moguls though they tend to dismiss me whenever i try to teach them how to go through them. obviously, you're entitled to your own opinion and your buddy shouldn't demean you for not wanting to go through them.

and who the hell goes snowboarding just to look cool?

They help build a more complete rider, IMO and I'm a firm believer that in snowboarding (and everything else, guitar, weight lifting, basketball etc.) improving a weak area of skill will indirectly improve seemingly unrelated areas where you might be more proficient.

Plus, natural moguls are really fun especially when they are big enough to get some good hits off.

I don't deny you guys that they are a challenge and require effort. Maybe if I could do em in gym shorts and a tee. There's 60 foot kickers part of the mountains here, but I don't feel I have to conquer them. Alot of people like to go slowly wind through really tight trees. I'll go in there to smoke a bowl or take a leak, but I guess the appeal is again lost to me on this. To each their own!
