Snowboard Motion Analysis

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I don't very often get a good excuse to post in the snowboard forum, but, my daughter announced her engagement this weekend, and the lucky son of a gun...I mean son in law to be, went to Kirkwood with me. So, to get even with his decadent knuckeldragging ways, I decided to post a few good snowboard shots, and let the experts advise how we're doing. We were jumping off the Wave cornice, and the snow was NICE!!!



Looking Good So Far!


This could be a problem


White-out on the Wave!



Houston, we have a problem!


So, any motion analyses? I thought it was a great run, but not representative of the best we had. I think I'm looking forward to a lot more turns with this guy. Have a great winter, and get out there and enjoy it.

What? not a single comment in 12 hours. I thought you'd like some boarder stoke. What, you don't trust a two-planker? :

Hey, I only surf when it is appropriate. At work.

Could just be skills. It looks like his bindings are not mounted back which makes it harder to keep the nose of your board from submarining. Since all I ride anymore is powder, I mount my bindings as far back as possible.
He is also not sitting back on the board to help keep the nose up. On something that steep and deep, I would definitely be leaning back and letting the board do the work.

His comment was, he likes to pressure the nose of the board to turn. It went too deep on him in this case.

nice pow!

looks like maybe he got in the back seat a little after the cornice, then got too far over his lead foot one the turn.

its all good, looks like too much fun to worry about form on that drop!

Hence the end result.

If he got back up with a smile on his face.....it's all good!

looks counter rotated off of the cornice, and the bindings look colse together. I would ease off the front foot, and surf the Pow. East coast riders tend to ride pow very aggressively, like they ride packed powder (read: Ice) with strong quick moves, and still maintaing the high edge anles. The real joy of riding pow is being light on the feet, and letting the board float beneath you.

absolutely agreed.
much like skiing, when you hit pow, you are in a different sport altogether, and have to adjust as such.
nicely pointed out
