What to learn next, and how?

I'm going snowboarding in march. I've done 9 days so far (6 days last year and 3 the year before that), however I would say I learnt very fast during those 9 days. I had been a skier since I was 10, and windsurf and longboard.

At the end of my last trip I was comfortable carving at speed on blues/reds, could 50-50 medium sized rails and indy over medium jumps.

Now as I only get to go 1 week per year, and cannot afford lessons, I was wondering what the best things to learn were in order to progress the fastest? And how I can learn them? I would quite like to get more in freestyle and just buttering/jibbing around. I thought maybe download some youtube tuts and shove them on my phone for watching on the piste?

This year will also be my first time out of rentals, got myself an arbor westmark 13 with k2 formula bindings ^^ cant wait to try them out but how much difference do you reckon I would notice coming from rental boards?

presses, butters, shifties, stylish grabs, nollies, ollies onto/over/off of natural features, stalls, plants

1s and 3s are easy as well. bs 1s are a lot of fun and look sick

spend some time riding switch

Honestly if you can only get out for 5-10 days a year just focus on having fun! If that's park stuff for you then go play in the park, try the lists of tricks out there.

If you're looking to get better overall, then nothing beats learning to carve REALLY WELL. It'll help all aspects of your riding.

The main idea of the sport is to have fun though, so make that priority #1!

Hey Jammy,

We def agree with everyone else get out there and just have fun! But if your really keen on advancing your riding, don't mean to plug here but check out some of our vids it has a great range from beginner to pro as you advance and will give you a great area to start to get some ideas. Check them out on our site or on the YouTube Channel.
