Learning to snowboard can either
be a frustrating experience, or quite an enjoyable one. One of the
biggest things to keep in mind while learning to snowboard, is to
not be afraid of new things and NOT to worry about what other people
think. Everyone on the slopes had to learn and feel goofy at first,
too, so just be patient with yourself and have fun!
Here is a list of things to bring on your first snowboarding adventure
(and all of those following!) Many of these items will be available
at the ski lodge, but chances are they are priced much higher than
you would like to pay!
- goggles or shades
- bottled water
- plenty of cash!
- Winter clothes that say WATERPROOF BREATHABLE
FABRIC (make sure to have a snow coat and pants, gloves and something
to cover your ears!)
You will find that learning to snowboard is a thousand times easier
if you take lessons from a professional instructor. It will greatly
simplify the process if you have someone to explain everything and
let you know when you do something the wrong way. Take the route
of less pain and quicker knowledge!
One thing that you will be asked when putting on your snowboard,
is whether you are regular or goofy-footed. This is a simple thing
to find out. What foot do you step with first, when someone pushes
you from behind, or when you slide along the kitchen floor in your
socks? If it is your right foot, you are goofy-footed. The left
foot is just regular.
Take it one step at a time! It will be more difficult if you are
tense and are wanting to look like a pro from the beginning. Learning
to snowboard is a process, so enjoy each step and take one turn
at time, so as to build your confidence. Before you know it, the
art of learning to snowboard will click, and you will feel it in
Remember to keep your knees bent and stay solid!
One of the best things about winter is the snow. And one of the
best things about snow is the fun and games that it allows.
Sports and Activities
Wintertime often sparks cabin fever, creating a feeling of seclusion,
boredom and depression in many people.
For most of us, ice skating is merely recreational, whether ice
hockey or simply ice skating in a rink.
