Learn to Snowboard

Introduction to Snowboarding

Snowboarding is a winter sport that involves descending a slope that is covered with snow while standing on a board attached to a rider’s feet, using a special boot set onto a mounted binding. The development of snowboarding was inspired by skateboarding, sledding, surfing and skiing. It was developed in the United States in the 1960s to 1970s and became aWinter Olympic Sport in 1998. In 2002 competitive snowboarders formed the World Snowboard Tour.

Learning to snowboard can be a very daunting task. From steep hills, tight bends, jumps, it can all seem a little too much and in some cases even put people off, however with the help of a professional tutor, even the most difficult moves can be mastered.

There is no substitute for actually getting on the pistes and trying, however and hopefully, these videos will give you the knowledge and belief that you can snoboard like the masters.
