Hey, I've been snowboarding for a few years now, but have never really attempted any tricks. I'm pretty sure this is mostly down to fear. I want to learn some tricks that are pretty easy, but also look good.

If you've got any suggestions of good begginer tricks or tips to combat fear it would be much appreciated.

One thing I tell myself when I want to try new things is something I picked up from a friend that I ride with and that is that the fear in most cases is greater than the trick. Obviously don't expect to go in with that mindset and think you're gonna BS 540 a small gap jump but it's good in finding confidence to progress.

You just have to not be scared to fall because it's going to happen. One thing you should do is read up on the tips on his site on how to fall as it'll make the experience much better.

But yeah, now when I want to try something new I just picture how I want it to go in my head and just hit it. Most of the time it doesn't work out how I picture it in my head the first time but I just keep at it until it does.
