Advanced Snowboarding Tips : How to Ride Powder on a Snowboard

KEVIN BYFORD: Hi. I’m Kevin Byford with the
Ski and Snowboard Schools of Aspen on behalf of the Expert Village. Okay so riding powder.
Some tips on riding powder. Key thing is to keep your body over the board. Don’t lean
too much you don’t want too much edge. Secondly, make sure your knees are nicely flexed. And
you’re really going to use your back foot a lot more. I use my back foot as a brake.
I press down on the tail so it goes deep into the snow and my nose comes out. As the nose
comes out that’s when I make my turn. That’s riding powder. Let’s give it a go.

    riding deep powder is more like surfing.

  2. Dimos Siagoulis says:

    how deep? cuz i need to know if on like 20cm- 50cm of powder, do i need to lean back? or is it fine? ive done powder before, but i just need to know if i was wasting my energy leaning back. so =D ty

  3. evan martin says:

    yeah, surfing is mostly back leg control, just like in deep powder.

  4. Andrew Jack says:

    Don't listen to this dumbass he has no idea what he's talking about. You surf with your front leg in control.

    i dont see the "advaced" in this…

  6. evan martin says:

    Well I have been working for 10 years as a Snowboard Instructor and live a hour and a half from Newport, so yeah, I must know shit. If you have good experience riding deep powder you will be able to transfer to surfing easily just don't try steering with your front leg like you do when snowboarding the groomers. Steer with the back like in pow.

  7. evan martin says:

    no, you don't need to lean back, keep more pressure on the tail of the board than on normal riding but not an extreme amount! Keep your upper body more inline with the board using less counter, you don't want to put a ton of pressure on the edges, stay centered. work on rounding out your turns instead of forcing them, and HAVE FUN!!! Pow is sick.
