Make sure that the equipment ensures your safety. Use helmet, wrist guards, stiff boots, etc. Never attempt to go down the slope without your gears on as this can only expose you to possible injuries. The helmet should perfectly fit your head’s circumference otherwise it is likely to let loose. Your boots must also fit perfectly to your feet. They must be comfortable and tight but not too tight as this can hinder the blood flow in your blood. Also, you may want to wear long socks, 2 if necessary to keep your toes warm and prevent being frozen. • The lead foot – As a beginner, you still need to adjust and acclimate yourself to snowboarding stances. You must be able to find your lead foot. Your stronger foot should be in front. But this is not necessarily a big deal because as you progress in your level, you can change the lead foot anytime you want. The key here is to adapt your lead foot according to your needs. • The right posture – A good posture is important when snowboarding as this greatly influences your balance. Find the right posture that you are comfortable and will match your performance. To find the right posture, place your feet on the snowboard, press with your lead foot, bend your knees, keep your back straight and feel the ground. When changing directions, shift between placing pressing on the heel edge and the toe edge. Change the pressure according to the snowboard’s direction. • Go with the flow, don’t control it – Snowboarding requires balance. To smoothly execute your move down the slopes, it is important to focus your attention to the right direction. After you have done this, it’s time to let your body do the job where you want to go. Don’t control it or become too tight about where directions to go as this can only lead you to a frustrating ride. • Learn from mistakes – As a beginner, every step is a learning point.
