female Newbie First Video Advice Wanted

A couple of things about me as a rider. I ride a GNU B-Nice, with Burton Lexa Bindings and Salomon Boots. I ride goofy. I have been up to the Mountain Ten times but two of those don't count since I was on the bunny hill helping my sister up when she would fall. This is my first actual solo run, the bf had hurt himself and was down at the base. I have a terrible fear of speed still so I put on the breaks a lot. I know its hard to see what I am doing with my POV camera but I am hoping that my shadow may give some things away. Just looking for a advice, praise, criticism, etc. This is also unedited, I just added the music so it was just my breathing. Can't figure out how to embed the video

I googled it and it may just be due to the song you choose. Copyright stuff.

Hi! Nice video. I think you're doing really good for day 10, and congrats on you're first solo ride.

Yeah, your shadow and the general direction you're going can give people here lots of tips.

I think one way to improve is to use your edges to turn more and reduce side-slipping/skidding. As you get better and you go on steeper/choppier slopes, you will want to use the edge of your snowboard to slice through the snow. The shape of the board's sidecut will help you turn. Once you get better at this, you'll learn to manage your speed by controlling the shape of your turns (turning away from the fall line to slow down), rather than applying brakes all the time.

In your video, I can see that you're going downhill, and your nose gets pointed left/right, but your actual snowboard/body doesn't turn quite so much. Especially on you're heel side, you can see lots of side-slipping.

Overall though, I think you're doing great! You obviously have lots of control/balance, so once you get comfier with you're edges, you can tackle more difficult terrain.

Unfortunately I can't see the video either! At least not on my iPhone. You might want to go into the video manager in your account and check the edit settings on this make sure it's either unlisted or public and doublecheck to make sure you're not getting a copyright infringement message from you too!

Shadow looks hot! Sorry I had to do that before chomps tried to take my title.

What are you looking for critique on? Overall riding? Sort of hard to tell from the helmet cam, but one thing I did notice is you're head is almost always facing downhill. If you're currently working on getting onto carving and controlling speed, it's best to look where you want to go. So look to one side, make the C turn, then look to the other side, etc.

The other thing that helps to do is keep you from being twisted right up when you're completing your toeside turn.

Again, sort of tough to tell from the video, you may be looking more right and left with your eyes, but either way that's my advice. Look where you want to go! Otherwise it looked pretty comfortable to me, you were controlling speed, picking your line, etc. I think what you may want to work on is getting more dynamic with the turns on the steeper section instead of going more into linked toe and heel slides. Again, I think looking to the sides will help with this.

Good first vid!
