 Snowboarding tips for beginners

Beginner Snowboarding Tip 1

  • Check your equipment
    • Getting your boots nice and tight from the beginning will ensure that you have full control of your board. Get the tongue as close as possible to the shin and lace up your boots so they feel secure. 

Beginner Snowboarding Tip 2

  • Find your leading leg
    • Left foot forward is regular. Right foot forward is goofy. If your instructor gives you a little nudge from behind, the leg you naturally fall forward onto is your leading leg. This is the leg that should positioned forwards on the board at all times. 

 Beginner Snowboarding Tip 3

  • Keep your bindings clean
    • If you get snow into your bindings, it can really affect the position of your feet on the board, which can make you uncomfortable and impact your boarding ability. To keep your bindings clean, simply clean out any snow on the footbed of the binding before securing your boots onto your board and make sure your foot is right back to the high back of the binding.
