How to Snowboard : How to Skate on a Snowboard


In this section, we’re going to talk about
skating. Basically how you get around the mountain when you?re not strapped into both
feet. You want to skate up to the lift and away from the lift. Also if you want to get
to your friends over there, you don’t want to strap both feet in and you don’t want to
walk. That’s where skating comes in handy. Once you have your front foot strapped in,
you want to get to the chair lift. You want to put all your weight over your front foot.
If you keep your weight on your back foot, your board is going to be sliding all over
the place. If you keep your weight on top of your board, it’s going to respond better
to you. Some people skate with their foot in front of their toe edge. It’s a little
bit awkward like a penguin walk. I don’t like it myself. I like to put my foot behind my
board and go ahead and put all your weight on your front foot. Make sure your eyes are
looking where you want to go. If their looking down here, at your board, your balance is
going to be all messed of. Kind of not really in the right place. If you keep your eyes
up where you want to go you’ll find that you’ll always end up there. That’s kind of how you
do it. You just want to make sure your weight is over your binding, centered, and pushing
with your back foot. You don’t want any weight on your back foot at all. I find putting my
foot behind my board is more comfortable. Some people prefer it in front. That’s alright
as well. You just want to do the same thing. It depends on how comfortable you are or how
you want to do it. Everything’s up to you, but that’s how you do it.

    lolz, so thats what ive been doing wrong all these years. Ive always been putting my weight on my back foot.

  5. asusvilla says:

    You don't use the "body's weight" but a force from your leg to get impulse. You basically use a force coming from your leg to move the mass of your body; it's like pushing a box instead of carring it (pushing it's easier)

  24. mike cavacece says:

    @ESPhotolicious lol me to my board was slideing all over the place and it was really hard

  25. FifthGear says:

    I disagree. The foot that you step with is your stronger foot. And you need your stronger foot to be on your tail for making ollies. I'm regular and my right foot is stronger than my left. That's why the left foot do the leading and the right do the kicking. And i always use the right foot for the hard stuff. Jumping while running. I always step on the right pedal of the bike for taking off.
