In the park or just riding down the mountain?what tricks should a noob like me learn first?
i can go down black runs without falling i think im ready to learn some tricks
any suggestions with first tricks to learn?
i started snowboarding last year
how many years to you think i will be able to do 180s tripods flips jumps etc?None. You should be solidly in control of your riding on blacks and double blacks before even thinking about tricks. If you can’t link deep hand dragging carves then you aren’t on the level.
Years from now you’ll be grateful because while your friends are floundering about not understanding why they suck you will truly rip.
A lot of tricks are simply tests of your form and balance. Ridding a box is a test of your ability to go in a straight line without using your edges and maintaining balance. Small and medium jumps are a test of going in a straight line and keeping your balance. Presses are a test of keeping your body straight and balanced.
I have been practicing tail presses a lot lately, I find the balance needed to keep yourself going straight and pressed helps a lot with jumps and jibbing too.
