My First Snowboarding Video!!

This is my third time, and I don't think I'm doing too bad. However, Joe did cut out my bad fall, thank goodness.

I'm really starting to have a lot of fun doing this!

Looks like you're having fun! I can tell you have good balance, but do you realize that you were digging in with your heels the entire time? Once you can switch between using the heel-side and toe-side of the board.. that's when the fun really starts

Looks like fun. I'm a die-hard skier, however I may have to give snowboarding a try someday.

One thing that people do here sometimes is when it is raining really hard - find a slope and a piece of plastic and go ripping down it.

Not bad at all for your first time. I did enjoy Joe's giggle when you fell on your butt trying to get up.

Very good first run!!! You look like a natural.

The snow looked pretty fantastic too.

You'll have to post another vid in a few weeks so we can check out your progress, excellent start!!

Did you know that the board has 2 sides for a reason??? Just joking, I'm sure you'll be carving it up in no time.

Yes, I do realize that. It's about the only way I'm feeling comfortable right now. There was a time when I was going on my toes, but then I ended up my legs twisted under me and a hurt knee! I'm sure it is something I will be able to work towards, though. I can't wait till I get there!

You should! It's really quite fun. I'm a very beginner level skiier as well, but I have to say I feel more graceful and fluid on a board.

One thing I need to clarify that Joe forgot to. This is the first run on my THIRD day. There's no freakin' way I could do that on my first run. I spent most of that on my ass!

If you and I could put our skills together, we would be a great snowboarder!

I can only carve with my toes in. If I dig my heels in, I catch an edge and go flying. I literally almost broke my arm last year.

Good for you for getting out there!

Thanks Shifty! We're expecting another storm in the next two days. It should be a blast to play in! I'll definitely post an update.

I'll have to watch this when I get home. My work computer lacks sound reproduction functionality, and I have a feeling the audio is important.

Hey, looks like you're coming along nicely!

I have a feeling I'd never transition from the "falling on my ass" stage.

I do ride goofy. I'm left handed, so I guess it's natural for me.
