How to help a snowboarder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm a ski'er. and i love what I do. But I have a little cousin that is a snowboarder, but she isent the best. She has troubles with lesser angles, but is good on headwalls... she only does the "falling leaf" techniqe and i want to help her, because she wants to keep up with me and my freinds, but were always on the north face. What do I do to encourage her? and help her get along? I always feel bad, because I feel like i cant help her.

She needs to learn how to turn. Getting her into a lesson would be the best help you could do for her. Failing that, the biggest key to turning instead of falling leaf is starting from a knees bent position and straightening the legs and turning the feet at the same time to get the board started into the new turn.

Lesson, please.


My suggestions would be either a private or group snowboard lesson. A private will offer more of a one on one personalized environment. A group lesson...still worth the time, however may not always offer the sometimes needed, indivdually tailored format. Just a thought.
