Snowboarding for beginners should begin before getting on the mountain. Beginning riders should learn and practice the basic positions and movements indoors, at home, or on the flat.
The most important key movement is the stance – it should be comfortable, relaxed, and allow you to balance easily while you look ahead, toe-side edging, heel-side edging, steering, fore and aft movements, and flexing and extending the legs.
Find a safe and clear spot at home on a carpet, newspapers or old blanket, pull on your boots and strap on your board. Sometimes it is helpful to use a chair or door frame for balance until you get more comfortable.
