Snowboarding for Beginners : Weight Distribution in Beginning Snowboarding


Hi, I’m Kevin Byford with the Ski and Snowboard
School of Aspen on behalf of Expert Village. Okay important thing, for your next toe side
gong. We’ve started downhill; we want to make sure our weight is 50/50 on both feet. In
order to do that our shoulders should be parallel to the pitch of the hill or to the board.
So watch as I go downhill and my shoulder drops and goes down with the board. There
you go weights even, now it’s slow to turn round and come back up. Okay, so here we are
ready to make our first turn. Key thing in our first turn is how to initiate the turn.
We’ve done it already on the garlands, let’s go repeat it. We’re going to go across my
toes, I’m going to release my edge and press my heels so that the board goes downhill and
flat, and then keep pressing my heels to get across the hill. That’s one turn; I’ll copy
that with my toe side turn. Let’s go. On my toes, going across now pressing my heels,
let the board go flat, looking over my shoulder, lifting my heel up and a perfect turn. Now
I press down on my toes, let the board go flat, keep pressing my toe, looking up the
hill. Beautiful. There we have it.
