Randy Price Member of the PSIA-AASI national demonstration team "As a professional athlete and instructor, working with Kevin and reading his book helped my riding immensely. One of Kevin's principles is straightforward and perfectly applicable for snowboarding, climbing or just about any sport—your mind leads and your body follows. It works!" — Robyn Ebersfield 4-time World Cup rock climbing champion "Never in my thirty-three years of pioneering, shaping and defining the sport of snowboarding was there ever access to material explaining the technical aspects of riding in such an easy to understand manner. . . . This 'encyclopedia' of snowboarding how-to belongs on the shelf of every ski area, snowboard park and bookstore in the snowbelt." — Paul Graves

    Excellent Instruction

    Before I bought and read this book, I was a beginning rider, struggling to advance. After carefully reading the book and applying what I learned, I became comfortable riding blue and black trails. After seeing my progress, the rest of my family now has the desire to snowboard.

    Great for Beginning Snowboarders!

    I bought this book for my daughter who had never skied or snowboarded in her life. She was having trouble after her first lesson. After buying and using this book she was carving and linking turns and 'Boarding! Her instuctor couldn't believe she was on the snow for only the second time in her life and told me she was 'Totally awsome!' If you buy only one book get this one!

    I was boarding in two days thanks to this book

    This book gives you the information, ideas and great tips for a novice (that's me) all the way to expert technique. I had never been on snow before and at 47 was a little nervous. The info in this book made all the difference between pain and pleasure - what a rush! I feel like I'm fifteen again. Take a lesson like the book recommends too.
