so many things u can do!....

what kind of riding do you do?.......are you still learning?.....or you can
ride but want to practice boxes/rails?....

I find that just putting the board on and "feeling" how it feels to move around,
ollie/nollie and twist/jump while on carpeting is really good. It keeps your brain
used to having the board on and it helps build muscle memory. It's also good if you
want to eventually be able to butter. You can shift your weight over your bindings,
drop your knee, counter rotate and use these motions to keep your core strong and to
get insight into body positioning over your board.

You can use a cone or a 4X4 with a cap on it and ollie/nollie and try to balance while
in a slow spin....and focus on balancing over your binding/s.

If you're into park and \want to practice box/rail/pvc/ yourself a drop in
ramp!...that's what I did and I practice all spring/summer and fall.....I stay limber
and keep my head in the game all the time. Also, you can visualise. When you are
doing meanial tasks....visualise yourself doing certain tricks or just riding......trying
to actually "feel" yourself and seeing yourself doing it in your mind. All of these activities
will keep your mind tuned to the sport and your body ready when it's time to go.

Anything athletic will help you physically get ready for next season.

I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend yoga. I started practicing yoga last year beginning around early October. I would go to a class once or twice a week, and then run and stretch a couple of days too. By the time the first day of riding came around I was more than ready. I usually get mad quad burn and my back typically gets tight and sore the next day, but this never happened. Yoga is GREAT for riding - I know several pro riders (Jake Blauvelt) can't say enough about the benefits of yoga in relation to snowboarding.

Besides that, definitely leg and core development. I'm not a big weight lifter and so for me, this comes from playing soccer, calisthenics and slacklining.

Definitely pick up slacklining. It's cheap, fun, good for you and you can set up a line ANYWHERE. The learning curve in the beginning is a bit tough but once you get somewhat decent its an excellent activity for core and balance.
