Never Snowboarded Before
Ok so I have a million questions, but I will start with a little about me. I have never snowboarded and have only been skiing twice. I do however skate and wakeboard. I live in Miami and an planning a trip to Austria. I want to learn to snowboard, and have a bunch of questions.
My first and largest question is "Is this something I can learn on my own?" I am debating on whether to take lessons or not. Not necessarily to save the money but I think I can progress faster on my own. I mean I dont want to pay for a full days lesson and end up spending half the day waiting for the instructor to explain what goofy foot and regular, heel and toe side is.
I have done a bit of research (watched several videos) and it seems like all videos teach the same progression:
1)Learn to skate the board around
2) straight glide
3) Walk up hill
4)Side slip (heel and toe edges)
What do you guys think should I Pay for lessons or go for it alone?
thanks so much for your help in advance.
PS, Mods I apologize if this is in the wrong section
