Overview

A world-class instructor explains how anyone of any age — from confirmed skier to rank beginner — can quickly get in on the thrill of the hottest sport in the world!
Snowboarding, the sport that has generated more excitement — and caused more controversy — than any other since Alpine skiing was invented, gives new meaning to fun on the slopes.
Learning to snowboard can be surprisingly easy — with the right instruction. In this complete, fully illustrated guide, beginners gain the know-how to get started, from choosing the right board to becoming familiar with snowboard lingo (do you ride "goofy" or "regular"?) to transitioning from skis to board. Lowell Hart starts readers off on familiar terrain — in the living room — where they practice key movements, the foundation of good riding at all skill levels. These are the moves that let riders tilt the board from front to back edge and carve the turns that only snowboards can scribe.
From key moves Hart guides readers through first descents, stopping, first turns, connecting turns, side-slips, and garlands, all the while interjecting tips and predicting trouble spots before they trip up beginners. Then it's on to intermediate, advanced, and freestyle riding: basic halfpipe technique, terrain park tips, airborne spin tricks, rail slides, and even backcountry 'boarding.
