Beginner Tips for Snowboarding

Always keep your hands in a fist when learning to snowboard. When you fall backward punch the snow and sit on your butt. A broken wrist is the most common beginner injury when learning to snowboard.

Learning to push (skate) on your snowboard is very important because you need this skill to get to and from the lift. Force yourself to push (skate) from behind your heel edge, taking short steps, as this will make your snowboard glide much better.
