new from wenatchee washington!!
hello guys and gals! My wife and i decided to take up snowboardin, my wife is a skier but I'm not so I asked her if she wants to learn snowboarding with me even though i'm a little old for this sport, lets just say last time I rode a skateboard was maybe 25yrs ago!anyway so we got a good deal for are boards, I got a TRIP snowboard (size 151) with Atlantic bindings and my boots are BD snoaboard shoes, my wife has the LAMAR merlot 151 with Lt20 bindings and TYPE snowboard boots.what you guys think on the gear we got??I have a lot of question but my main one is how do I slow down? not stop just kinda slow my decent a bit. Thanks in advance and I will try to post some pics of our boards..
To slow down you need to put pressure on your heel or toes, that is also how you stop. (Very general tutorial)
I guess that's a good board size, I'm not an expert, but you might want a smaller board because you skate.
Hope that helps, I'm new to this forum.
To get a better idea of the basics of snowboarding, there are some instructional videos found here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/tip...s-instructors/ by our resident instructor Snowolf and others.
Welcome to the forum, if you have any other questions feel free to share.
