Snowboarding Tips : How to J-Turn on a Snowboard

So, now that you know how to straight line
another way to maneuver around the mountain is J-Turning. J-Turns are just maneuvering
through people on your edges of having one foot strapped in still, but being on your
edges. When you lift your toe up you’re going to be on your heel edge. When you put your
toe down you’re going to be on your toe edge. So, when you maneuver through people throughout
the base of the mountain you can get where you need to go by turning on what direction
you need to turn on. So, as if I’m going to go this way. I want to go to my right. I am
going to turn on my heel side edge. That is going to make me turn this way, go right,
so I’m going this way. As if I was doing a J-Peg turn on my toes I would put my toe down
and that is going to make me turn to the left, because I’m on my toe side edge pushing going
towards the opposite direction. Another thing, J-Turns have nothing to do with your upper
body. It’s all about just your edges on your snowboard and being able to push and go and
push and go and be flat based and then jay turned, be flat based and J-Turn and maneuver
in and out of people and get to where you need to be.
