If you feel that you’re not the best athlete, snowboarding tricks seem pretty impossible. Snow boarding isn’t the easiest sport to pick up. Go slowly and lots of practice is the best way to pick up snowboarding. You should learn the basics before you go looking to perform tricks.
Before you even think about trying a snowboarding trick simple things like carrying your board without hitting someone, gliding, and skating over flat terrain should all be mastered. You can start to think about pulling your first snowboarding trick once you can get on a board without falling off a skate reasonably well.
Getting On Your Board
It falls into the looks easier than it is category getting on your board. You want to get comfortable with your board because your board and how it feels is essential to making sure you pull off your cool snowboarding trick successfully.
When you first strap on your board make sure to do it in a place that is quiet with low traffic. Try to find a place where there isn’t alot of people around the first time you to strap on your board. Try to do this on flat ground or in an area with a very gentle incline.
The bottom of the board faces you and the bindings are away from you when placing the board on the ground. Place the board flat on the ground now. If you are on an incline place the safety leash on your front leg. This prevents the board from sliding away from you.
Your front leg now goes in the front binding. Your heel should be in place securely before you fasten the ankle strap. Now fasten the toe strap. It should not be painful but it should be snug otherwise your foot is going to come loose.
Now move your board around once your foot has been securely strapped in. With just the one foot strapped in stand up and then bring the board towards you. To help you bring the board towards you bend your knee. Get the feel of the board by doing this a few times.
Now in a reverse fashion you want to repeat this step. Lift your board behind you, pushing your leg out. This is done by placing your free foot in front of the board. This should help prep you for the next step of learning a snowboarding trick. It is very important before you try to do any snowboarding trick to get comfortable with you board.
