Once you can snowboard, you could learn some tricks to impress your fellow boarders, your friends, or you could even learn some snowboard tricks to perform in competition.
The first trick a boarder must learn before progressing to other more advanced snowboard tricks is the ollie. The ollie is a no-handed aerial that uses only your momentum and a few foot movements to lift off the slope while controlling the board.
To do: ride standing upright with by your side and at a comfortable speed. Bend your knees. Crouch down. Place all your weight on your back foot and lift the nose of your board. Now, propel yourself upward. The front of the board comes up first, then lift your back leg to level out. Land both feet at the same time.
