Snowboarding is undoubtedly one of the sports that is acquiring more and more followers and fans around the world, coming almost to have the same number of people who practice skiing, the king sport in the snowy mountains. Today, Jose Manuel Aguilera Rioboo has much to talk about snowboarding for beginners and how to start practicing this sport.
Even so, it is not easy to start snowboarding without knowing anything about skiing techniques. However, for a skier, it is an easy change. With a basic understanding of how gravity works, the snow and the edges of the board, you just have to apply them to a new sensation swinging from heel to tip rather than from side to side. But first of all, it is very important to choose the right snowboard boots since they have to match perfectly to the board that is chosen and the needs of the person.
The first thing is to know if we are right-handed or left-handed. The right-handed carries the left leg back, while the left-handed (regular) carries back the right. The back leg is the rudder of the board, and is usually the strongest leg.
There is a very classic position that is called the position of the Warrior, it is so named because it is like an athlete who is going to start a race or a jump, or the warrior who is crouching about to attack.A fully standing, stretched snowboarder will last a little longer on the board. Semi-flexed legs are the most important aspect of the position that you have to have in the table. The legs are dampers and provide balance.
The main rudder is the shoulders, which direct the body from side to side and it is the hand from the front that governs.
Another thing that matters is the sideslipping, the accelerator and the board brake. Learn to control the angle of inclination of the edges of the table. And to rely on the gravity. Whenever the table is standing still, even on a smooth surface, it is unstable. This is because both feet are attached to the same plane of equilibrium. As humans, and like skiers, we use both legs independently to adjust the balance when standing.
The moment someone stands on a standing table, the only way to stabilize the body is to sit down. It is important that the first time we get up with the board already caught at the feet.
